Roger, I've been checking these out - do you use one?  Do you use the
minidrive with it?

Is there digital in my future?!!  Boy, I would like to avoid all that
scanning time.  I already have the lights and backdrop, so that saves some
rental costs.  I'm going to look over the products next Wednesday before I
give them an estimate!

Thanks for your advice!!

Jim

Jim,

My general rule is $500-1000 per day depending on multitudes of
factors, plus all costs times two.  Reproduction ownership is
negotiable, but for catalog work isn't worth the hassle.

White seemless backdrop, rented studio lights (you'll pass on
all rental costs) will give you an easy to "blast" background
that will be shadowless and scannable without having to spend
much photoshop time with.

I'm kinda leaning towards the digital camera route, myself, too.
 A rented/borrowed/bought E20 would be ideal for this.  Instant
results, direct dump into computer.  Save the company lots of
money and time.

Figure on four pictures per hour in figuring the time needed.
This is provided that these will be straight shots with just a
swap and shoot style of working.  Anything fancy will require
thirty minutes to an hour each.

The shoot will take three full days.  Don't even think on
skimping there.  Per shot time might be less, but setup and
teardown and breaks will need to fall in there too.

Another reason why digital would be a better choice here (and
the job would instantly pay for the E20) is that when you walk
away from the shoot you may be completely done.  With film, you
will have scanning and photoshop time which will take another
six days to accomplish.  Unfortunately you can't easily charge
what your time is worth there.  "Hidden" costs like that don't
fly very well these days.

Gosh, did I actually suggest a digital camera TWICE?
