GlossyPinkLipstick
Ive just done a shoot and some of the images have flare from a light i used at the side. i didnt notice it in the viewfinder and i didnt "chimp" so it only became apparent when i got home. Member Image
Do you stuff it up like this as well, make rookie mistakes. Member Image
Do you shoot and only get a few useable images not because of poses or models but beacause you simply didnt think or missed it. Member Image
Is it only us amateurs that do these type of things because you have the experience not to? Member Image
Can i get rid if it in phototoshop elements or is it a preserve of CS. Member Image

Professionals are supposed to understand lighting, and watch out for things going on in the viewfinder. Member Image

Never on a shoot with a model but once travelled over thirty miles for a landscape shoot and found the camera battery was almost flat. Now I always check it is fully charged and carry a fully charged spare as well. I was never in the Scouts but my motto is now "be prepared".

Sorry to hear you had problems with your images.  You might find that lightroom might have a solution to solve the problem.  You can download a trial version.
If this does not work, feel free to email me one of the images and I will try to recover the info for you?

As long as you learn from your mistakes it is a valuable, if not frustrating experience.
Best Wishes

This is just my own assessment as I really don't know any other photographers so it maybe true or not-judge for yourself!
Professionals do **** it up to and its normally bigger **** ups cause of the size of their projects but the difference is, 1 they're quick to fix it or conceal it cos they got the know how, 2 they will not tell you they did especially on here; can you Imagen one of them going on here and saying they did a stupid mistake an amateur wouldn't do..maybe they'll tell you they've done one long ago! how would that reflect on their reputation! only the really big names and I mean the big ones who don't have time to be on forums and who've done so much in their career over many many years have the guts to say they did where by their built up reputation won't be effected by something like this!
Also  and relatively speaking a true professional wont boost about how professional they are..they're more down to earth and a lot more approachable than middle weight ones the ones where their noses went way too far up their ....
so if I were you I wouldn't listen to this crap...but again what do I know!

someone should shoot the moron that came up with the term 'chimping'... it was Nutley that told me about it...

Basically, IF they had been able to put a screen on the back of the first camera to show you instantly what the image looked like, they would have. They couldn't, and ever since you have had people being f'in snot nosed about others using the latest technology to aid taking photographs...

If you decided NOT to 'chimp' because you thought in some way it made you more 'professional' then sorry... it made you less professional. A good professional will use the best technology they can to get the best results they can.

To answer your question directly... yes... they do, in all walks of life.

Ouch! Thanks for that.What i said was i didnt look at those images, of course I use the screen. My understanding of chimping is looking at every image and disrupting the flow, but thanks anyway.

That's and awful lot of assumptions from somebody who admits to not really knowing any other photographers.

As Aaron says, not looking in the back of the camera when you have the means and the technology isn't so clever, that's what it's there for.

The term 'chimping' came from a reporter looking at some photographers crouched down shielding their screens from the sun with their bodies in the early days of digital cameras, he turned to his colleague and said "look at them,they look like chimps".

For the future you can have a laptop computer teathered to your computer and you will be able to see the results clearer and review on location.

Good luck!

Hi Paul

You can have a laptop computer teathered to your camera and you will be able to see the images clearer.  This will enable you to take more images if necessary.

Good Luck!
