5D MK III Sample Images / Re: Where am I ?

This may be difficult...this may be easy :-)

This was in March, and the water is actually that blue.

Thanks everyone, especially paul13walnut5 and picturesbyme.  This has helped me realize what I need to do for this and future paying endeavors.  I have some friends that do about the same level of work/better, but I have the leg up on understanding the technicalities of the equipment(both hardware and software) while they are far more artistic than I am.  So choosing the "going rate" seems logical at this point with variation coming in as experience increases.

I don't do it for fun (though on the good days I enjoy it) and I never ever do it for free, or below rate (unless there is a specific benefit to me). 

Would you consider exposure as a benefit to you? That is one of the benefits I could get for doing this at "Uncle Bob's" rates would be the potential to get some great exposure from a website that has 10,000+(probably closer to 100,000 if not more) of unique viewers.

How getting paid for jobs can work:

That video pretty much sums it up.  I'm assuming since no one has said anything that the photos look "payable"?

Maybe you should grab the Yellow Pages or Google, see who is doing similar in your area and for what price...
There are many variables, what value do you put on your time?, what is your experience?, will it be a way to build your experience/business...
It's a tough call, generally people want something for nothing, also people don't understand that there is a financial cost and time cost associated with your work.

Like many pro/semi pro photographers these days, many are being undercut by "Uncle Bob" photographers.
It is a tough call because it is for a website that could potentially give me a ton of exposure, but I don't want to underprice it either because it may cause them to think badly as well...125/hour was a rough starting point given to me by another photography friend of mine who has done more paid work than I have.  Thoughts?  Do those pictures warrant that price? (granted this job is far simpler than those pics...)

Ok, so I have someone asking me how much I charge to take photos at a party(not a wedding, just a get together, like at a bar) but as the official photographer and I don't want to overcharge and scare them away from using me.  How much would y'all charge based on the work....can see more at my website: claycorbin.com

Any sharpness comparisons between 5DIII raws with the new ACR and DPP?  I found the beta versions of ACR weren't giving me the sharpness that I could get with DPP.

I believe from my experience (I am still very amateur at this) that the with LR 4.1 that the sharpness is up to par with DPP when converting to a 16 bit TIFF.  What did catch my eye is how much sharper the CR2 file was after NR in 4.1 compared to the TIFF;  I wouldn't go so far to call it night and day, but a drastic difference (even for non-pixel peepers). It would be great if someone else can confirm this and or this is a given differences in TIFF to RAW.

Sorry I am a bit dense... but did you find the Cr2 sharper or the Tiff sharper? was the Tiff converted in 4.1 or DPP?
I found that the CR2's stayed sharper after adding noise reduction (processed in LR 4.1) than did the Tiffs (processed with dpp, then opened up in LR). Before noise reduction, they were very similar.

I was wondering if anyone has any clue if Aperture has the same issue?
