I'm a Canon guy :)

comment How do I take good portraits with a bridge camera and superzoom?
I believe @PhilipKendall is referring to you including links to the same website in many of your comments. Generally, promotion of specific products/services/sites is not welcome unless it directly answers the original question.

comment How much should an amateur charge for a portrait session?
@Jahaziel Right, and that's why I've made it clear that all the calculations are just to get you to your bare minimum charge, basically, your break even point. As you gain experience, hone your craft, and expect to actually make money on your work, then clearly your prices should go up accordingly.

comment Looking for a camera below $1000
This implies that you currently only have the camera body and kit lens (the one that normally comes with the body, which I believe is an EF-S 18-55 IS). Is that correct, or do you also have other lenses?

comment What do you recommend for a high quality photo book service?
it looks like this is simply wrapping photobooks.pro so it may be better to just go directly there...

comment What quality to choose when converting to JPG?
I'm not sure what exactly you mean by this "Disks are still pretty cheap these days so there are advantages to JPEG files..." It looks as if there may have been a typo?

comment What does “green background” means, when related to “vibration reduction”
@woliveirajr it's nothing against you, it was a valid question until it was answered :)

comment Can one create multiple exposure images with a Canon DSLR?
It would be better if you combined your two answers. Ideally any question should have a single comprehensive answer.

comment Is it possible to manage photos without importing them into libraries in iPhoto or Aperture?
I had the same feelings, which was what led me to go with Lightroom instead.

comment How can I take pictures of flying seagulls without just getting white blobs?
I forgot this was shooting against a sunny sky, so you're right it would probably be the other way.

comment What surface to use for food photography?
if the glass itself is colored, you might be able to find a color gel for the light that would balance (just a wild guess, but it seems that a light pink might be helpful).

comment Can I change the lens of my film SLR even when a film is loaded?
" is never meant to be passing light only" I'm not sure what you meant there... did you mean to word it that way?

comment How do I prevent condensation in my waterproof GoPro casing?
This is the same stuff that you find in shoe boxes... it comes in many shapes and sizes, so you should be able to find something.
