Each month Design Aglow brings you Studio Policies for Success to make your photography business run smooth as silk while avoiding all too common problems that plague even the most experienced photographers. Feel free to use our recommendations as is or modified to suit your needs (and you can thank us later *wink*).
The Policy: “Reprint orders can be made at any time throughout the year, while your images are on file. As always, there is a minimum print order amount of $350.00 so it is best to place all orders at one time to avoid having to meet the minimum each time.”
Design Aglow Note: Reprint orders are not usually very large, as typically clients only want to add on one or two items. Most professional labs have a quota that photographers have to meet in order to have the lab process our order. If you don't meet that quota, some labs will charge the minimum amount, even if the order is only for one print. Therefore, it is in your best interest to maximize your volume with each sale, to ensure that YOU meet your lab's quota as well.
As photographers, we’re always on the lookout for new tools that will make our workflow faster and easier (while making our images look their best), and when we found Mastin Labs’ film presets for Lightroom, specifically Fuji Pro, Ilford B&W and Kodak Portra, we knew we had hit gold!
We downloaded and installed all three, and watched the included Getting Started tutorials Edit Your First Image and Using Tone Profiles that hold your hand and walk you through the presets and how they work.
The presets are incredibly easy to use, and quick to apply. And, we love that they are designed to replicate the films that we have known and loved.
