I'd use a pad of paper or a whiteboard, let them write contact info on it with a marking pen, and take a photo of each person holding it during their photo shoot (like a mug shot). That's what I did for a church directory a while back. Low tech. I probably wouldn't have done it with film, but an extra digital image doesn't cost much.

Yes, it is possible. But you should not do this. Being dishonest with your teacher is never a good move. If you have a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with a large sensor, you may be able to convince your teacher that what you have is significantly close to a DSLR to work for the needs of the class. It's probably a good idea to ask exactly what she's ...

Most cameras allow an image review mode immediately after shooting, and some let you choose to display info overlaying the image, including the image number or file name. Have each person fill out a line on the sign in sheet with their contact info, and leave a column for you to fill in the number of the image for them. If you take multiple shots per ...

Will these be paying customers? The last conference I was at, the photos were posted publicly on Twitter. Obviously, the people being shot were not the customers. The conference was the main customer. And the entire point of posting these pictures on Twitter was to generate social media buzz about the conference (while at the same time providing an easy ...

Photograph the form just before the person. It doesn't have to be high quality, just readable. Optionally, have some other bookend at the end of that client's shoot, like a blank sheet, black card, or fun object, if you don't trust your own discipline to always shoot the next client's form before the client, or if you might have some "other" photos ...

What you're doing is similar to what the photographers at places like theme parks do. They just give the customer a slip of paper with the shot number and any other necessary information, to be entered in a web form or taken to a central location for printing. The process is very quick, because the tickets can be preprinted (and if not they're quick to ...

It seems you are looking for inspiration. Finding inspiration is a subject which has already been treated in this forum. Have a look at : Where do you find the inspiration for your photographs? How does one develop good photographic vision and style? How do you develop 'creative taste' in order to take a good photo? Is it bad to mimic other ...

Lets look at the pros and cons. For example a BA in Photography: Pros: Access to high end equipment and studio time Industry doors opened A chance to develop a "style" A chance to build a portfolio Cons: A MASSIVE cost (Probably £10k PA + equipment, living costs etc) There are VERY few jobs that require this, and 1000+ people applying per opening ...

Without full knowledge of your exact location it's not possible to say if you actually require permission, or not. My university had a mix of buildings on public streets, and campuses which were not publicly accessible. Since you've said that you were "taking some photographs on my university campus" and were able to recognise it as part of a campus, it ...

I think it comes down to whether your university is private or public. From the Met's webpage on police guidelines for photography: Freedom to photograph and film Members of the public and the media do not need a permit to film or photograph in public places and police have no power to stop them filming or photographing incidents or police personnel. So, ...

Try any of those methods and it could end up a mess. You need a database {filemaker} and applescript all custom written for your workflow. Write name and email in database Take pictures tethered. Review in Lightroom. Choose picture. Export to upload folder. Folder action emails to client. Welcome to my world! To do this type of job professionally and ...

Don't be dishonest. Remove the EXIF completely. And mix your pictures with some taken with a borrowed DSLR. Then see if she can prove that specific pictures were taken with a mirrorless.

I support the idea of not cheating. Nevertheless, you can edit your exif data online via : www.thexifer.net. Every field can be edited. First, you upload your image on the website then you edit the EXIF data, finally you download the modified image.

Your issue seems to be that you are anxious about forgetting to enter the details for single patron and getting all the following details out of sequence. A simple technique to use here is to abandon any notion of sequence and work on something absolute. Time stamp the details. After the patron has filled in their details, write the current time on it ...

You do not want to be the one who makes a mistake. Do not make this hard: I always say move the problem to where it is no longer a problem. As I see it, you as a photographer are not the right person for that job, the client / class teacher / foremen / boss / HR colleague aught to know the faces. Let them supply that info. Delegate: Delegate this to the ...
