I walked into a dodgy high street portrait studio for a nosey and listended to the sales girl speak to a potential client,
"Don't worry it's all done digitally so we can remove any blemishes."
So how can I compete with that? How do I convince a client that she doesn't need those bags under her eyes removed? That other photographer gives me all the photographs on a CD so I can print them out at home. I hate high street studios with a passion.
Any designers will need a digital file as all their software is obviously digital. Bands will want a digital file for their website.
We can shoot in film, but we need to be prepared to deliver a digital file if required. Go out and buy a scanner!
