Hi Folks. 30 year studio photographer here. Use Photoshop daily. Very nice site. I shoot strictly digital high end and even though I cut my teeth on film, I have not shot a roll or sheet now in 10 years. All digital. Also do Giclee work as well as my commercial work. Lucky to have a Clio Award under my belt. My site is sjbaraophoto dot com if you want to take a peek. Hope to learn as well as share here on this site. Take care.

Hi photog1,

Welcome here. It seems you have much experience with photography.

Can you share your experience with me. I am going to develop an Studio. Have a good experience with photo restoration and retouching as well as working as a freelance since many years, but do not have good hand in photo shoot.

Purpose is to talk to you that where I should start ? Where I should run ? and where I should achieve ?

I want to be a good in-house photographer (not outdoor). I'm very-very good with photoshop too.

Thanks for he welcome folks. As far as a reply to Ash. Breaking in to commercial studio photography is NOT easy. I don't want to discourage you but it is much easier to get up and running doing portrait or wedding photography while you develop your skills shooting commercial subjects. I have so many students who have just graduated from art or photography school come to the studio to ask me about the trade. The first thing I do is take a reflective product and have them try to light it properly..I am astounded at their lack of knowledge in doing so. What are these schools teaching? I don't know..My advice is to keep up with your computer skills and read every book you can get your hands on and ask lots of questions. I like to tell people that I learned my trade by mistakes...Making them and learning from them. Good luck.
