Thanks for the comment on my website. I actually haven't posted anything on there in over two years or so. It is NOT professional and there are so many photos that shutterfly will not allow me to add anymore. I need to remove some old stuff and replace--just too busy. I want to get a professional site at some point. Just can't make up my mind on how I want it to look etc.
Thank you very much! I mostly make sure to shoot at least in 125 shutterspeed, depending how active the bands are, even though my camera is not very good for high iso shots, mostly shoot in 400-1600 , always shoot in RAW ofcourse, because it can help you so much in the editing process
My website is hosted by Zenfolio and was built using their own site building tool. They have a 14-day free trial, at the end of which you can either cancel and delete your site, or choose from one of 4 payment plans each with increasing features. At the moment I'm on the basic plan for £25 per year which gives me 2gb storage +1gb extra every following year, but any images sold through the site are "not for profit" (Zenfolio set the prices to cover their cost only). The £50 per year plan gets you unlimited storage, and for £100 per year their are even more extras plus you can set your own prices and make a profit from any sales.
I've started on the £25 per year plan just to see how things go, if it's successful enough I'll upgrade to £100 next year and try and make some money out of it.
To be honest, I don't have the patience for image stacking....and it's almost impossible if the subject is moving. So, I prefer to work with an aperture of f/8 or more and get the subject in one shot.....if the light isn't good enough I use a Marumi ring flash to enable me to use the narrow aperture with a high enough shutter speed to get it sharp handheld.
