    You are welcome. Glad you find it helpful. But, I still am hoping for a more targeted resource specific to the photo management industry 🙂

    Agree. It’s unfortunate that the forum can be a bit discouraging as posts aren’t seen, read or followed up on as regularly as the Facebook group.

    Thanks Adam. I did look through this comprehensive list already, but would still like some sample wording for the various areas specific to this industry. Hope that makes sense. 🙂

    Do you create a camera color profiles for scanning?

    I messaged DAM Useful Publications about using different colorcheckers. Here is the reply I received:

    “While this – the less expensive version- is probably fine as a general color guide, or doing a basic white balance. The thing it won’t do is allow you to make a color profile for your camera. The camera profile allows you to make a more accurate scan of prints with a standard setting.

    Many people are happy to digitize without the profile. It’s really about your objectives and how important a very close match to the original is for you.”

    Adam,

    For scanning purposes, do you think a 100mm IS USM vs the straight USM makes much difference..especially if using a copy stand?

    But since my camera is an APS-C wouldn’t an 85mm be the same as a 127.5 ( 85 x 1.5  approx 135mm) lens?

     

    Or What about using extension tubes on my 50mm?

    I know the price difference for the 100mm IS is  about +$300.

     

    Thanks!

    Thanks Adam ! Right now just prints. I have a small collection of 35mm negatives, but not ready to even try tackling them yet 😉

    Any recommendations on aperture settings? F8 or F11?

    Greetings from North Carolina!

    {reposting, with small edits, from my January intro on the APPO site}

    I originally joined back in March 2017, but quickly got overwhelmed and intimidated with all the info so I cancelled my membership after one quarter. But since then, I have not stopped thinking about/contemplating rejoining. I even came close to attending the conference TWICE! And, one of the times it was even local to me…which I am still angry at myself for not going. Anyway…

    Between then and now, I have invested (aka “spent”) a ton of time and money discovering what I really want to do in this next phase of my life. A few of the recurring themes throughout my life have always been photos, photography and organizing. From my first camera, (that I begged for – a kodak 110 pocket camera) I have truly been in LOVE photos and the stories they tell. I didn’t care whether it was a film, polaroid, point-and-shoot, dslr or phone camera, I have just always wanted to capture *all the moments* to share and remember. I also love making albums for myself and others (and yes, some were the old magnetic page ones). I have also *always* been a collector of ephemera and such, and made my own manila-paged scrapbook wayyy back when. And of course, once I had children, my photo addiction grew along with LOTS of framed prints, scrapbooking and even shadowbox creation. But, as most of us know all too well, life got busy and you know the rest 😁

    I’m sure my story has similarities to most of yours and is why we are drawn to this work. So fast forward to September 2019 when I finally got up the courage to schedule a call with Cathi about APPO and ask if the work I would like to do fits within the membership. Her call reassured me that APPO members come from various backgrounds and do a multitude of different things within their businesses. I decided to rejoin and also register to attend the 2020 conference along with the pre-conference intensive (Bldg a Successful Business). Although I want to learn about all aspects of DAM, my plan as of now, is to start with organizing print photos (and maybe some digital) and album/book creation. I have been learning digital photography (2+years) so that’s also an aspect that I think will help.

    I have completed the Scanning Work Flow  and Adam’s Lightroom Organizing online courses. I have used Lr for editing, so this course helped me better understand all the file management aspects. Lr is sooo robust, but I’m determined to master it! I am also working on the new certification and almost ready to submit my client project portion.

    I am excited to be a part of  “new and improved” The Photo Managers and hoping to meet many of you in Atlanta in 2021. I have already seen what an inclusive and supportive group this is, so I am looking forward to sharing and working with you all.

    Warmly,

    Stacey  😊
