comment How might Mario Testino have lit this Kate Moss photo?
If you are new to this area I would suggest starting with the lighting-basics tag fundamentals in addition to the strobist material: What does “Strobist” in Photography mean?. It's a huge jump to go from no lighting gear to trying to replicate a pro. Just my 2 cents.

comment Can our wedding photographer charge editing fees not listed in the contract or previously disclosed?
If you are here for clarification on typical practices, we can answer that. If you are here for legal advice (which seems to be the title as well as question #2), I would advise you to go elsewhere - a lawyers office.

comment Can our wedding photographer charge editing fees not listed in the contract or previously disclosed?
our photographer is stating the editing included blemish removal/skin correction only, anything else is $1/minute. - What exactly is the else you are looking for? Did the proofs delivered thus far not have basic color correction and cropping? Are you afraid of receiving an album with images that are not yet color corrected, cropped, or... ? You also say edit images to our request; what does that mean exactly? Please explain.

comment Are there third-party tools to edit Lightroom's catalog?
Great recommendation. Photo Mechanic can offload the piece that is the most cumbersome to do in LR, culling. Since I've switched my workflow speed has dramatically increased.

comment Acquisition in live view, Nikon D3s
Wasn't this already answered by Michael Clark in a previous Q&A you had? photo.stackexchange.com/a/73644/4892 . Maybe you could explain (by editing this question) what is different about this question vs your previous one linked to above. Without that I'm afraid this may be closed as a duplicate of that previous question.

comment Why isn't GIMP as popular?
@CountIblis - There's more to it than just what they can do, marketing, historical market share, UI/UX, ecosystem, enterprise support, educational usage, etc etc. the list is endless.

comment My photos are way too dark, must use 6000+ ISO inside
@Chris - If you have the NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, the aperture max ranges from f/3.5 at 18mm to f/5.6 at 105mm. The maximums are properties of the lens itself.

comment Lens recommendations?
Hi Judy and welcome to the site. This isn't a product recommendation website, rather we try to help answer practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. In particular products come and go so frequently that they have little value here beyond helping a single person. Try to phrase your question in a way that we can teach you what you need to know to make a decision on your own.

Chris, I've edited your question down to what I believe is your main question(you pointed out the others are minor). Here at stack exchange we only have 1 question per question. Feel free to ask another completely new question for the others, and welcome to the site!

comment How do I convert the color space correctly?
W. Lee - Welcome to the site! I'm afraid I'm quite unclear as to what topic exactly your question pertains to. I generally understand that you are trying to convert a RAW file to the proper color temperature. What camera captured this image? What exactly is "correct" conversion to you? What algorithm are you talking about? Have you searched this site for existing answers on this topic? What did you find? Did you see: How to estimate colour temperature...

comment Taking High-Resolution Images
Are there any cameras that do x and are there ways to stitch images of size y are completely different questions. As is this question is too broad. Narrow to one question please.

comment Cameras: choosing between mirrorless and advanced compact as an experienced amateur switching from DSLR
You are having trouble finding indepth guides for advanced users who would like to switch because those users have specific needs and likely can explore certain areas of interest and concern individually. You even bring up the point that specific product recommendations aren't all that helpful. You seem to have completed at least some research, but what have you found at this site? Start with the mirrorless tag for example. What about this does not suit you?

comment Which will produce a shallower depth of field: 50mm f/1.7 or 70-210mm f/4?
If you type in "depth of field calculator" to your favorite search engine, you will find many options to calculate any scenario you desire.
