THOUGHTS ON DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY
With the advent of the digital light room (what was once known as Data Processing)
The possibility of ink on paper became light on the computer screen,
at the push of some buttons and some lengths of wire.
In house image sizes for digital images; 8"x10", 5"x7", 4"x6", 3.5"x5", wallet (Approximately the size of a wallet card or 2.5"x 3.5") (INDUSTRY STANDARD SIZES).
The digital color prints are ready about 4 hours after I get home. (The ink needs to dry before I can trim the prints.)
"Ask about custom, special packages; mattes, multi-picture mattes, pictures in frames and albums available from local distributors, stores and catalogs."

I own a digital Nikon L-26 still camera with limited video, a Nikon D40 digital SLR, a Nikon D-5000 Still and Video Camera (up to 20 minutes in length) and a Nikon D-5001 camera (Tested but never used for an assignment.
Digital portraits anytime there is enough light, Rembrandt lighting for portraits after dark.
