Here are the questions that Marco answers in this episode:

 

  1. Hello Marco, I have a gear and marketing related question for you. I am working part-time as an event and wedding photographer. On my jobs, I use a Fuji X-T2 and a Fuji X-Pro 2 with prime lenses. My clients are always satisfied with the results that I deliver. But especially at weddings I often see guests with much bigger and more expensive DSLR cameras taking pictures as well. And sometimes I get asked if I plan on upgrading to a pro camera any time, soon - or similar questions. I know that my images are good, but do you think that it would help to upgrade to a larger kit in order to look more professional and maybe charge more money for my jobs in the future?

  1. Hi, could you please elaborate on the difference between the electronic vs. the mechanical shutter. When should you and when should you not use the different kinds of shutter?

Question from: Vincent, Long Beach, California


  1. Hi Marco, what is the point of using an extra L-bracket or L-plate with a tripod? I can simply turn the ball head on my tripod by 90° to move from landscape to portrait orientation. Thanks!

  1. I’m having a hard time judging the true color of my printed photos. I have a calibrated LCD monitor and a calibrated ICC workflow. The images come out in my studio the way I want, but when I bring them to hang at a customers house or display them at a coffee shop, they often have a different color tint. How can I avoid this?
