Walmart can sell photos for $12.95 because they overbook and run 1 - 3 hours behind.  Part of me thinks this is goes with working with kids, my cynical side thinks it is intentional so you fill up a shopping cart while you are waiting.

Hey, back on topic for a minute:
Has anyone noticed an increase in Vetta sales this week?

None for me...not exclusive.

They actually run behind because the camera room is booked in 10 minute increments. I used to work for a big box studio. You have 2 minutes to figure out what the client wants, set up the background and get the props. 10 minutes to get the kid to smile/sit still, whatever, and 30 minutes to show them the images and sell the packages. If one client shows up 5 minutes late or the kid doesn't cooperate then your screwed.

Photography experience is not a requirement. You just need a high school diploma. They will teach you how to use the camera - lights are rigged to automatic settings, so the photographer doesn't have to deal with them directly. Put kid on dot - point and shoot. Your not allowed to change the settings.

Back on Topic:

Vetta sales are on sale now. IS is offering a discount for Vetta purchases and giving Vetta contributors double RC's to help them make their end of year goals. Nothing is available for non-Vetta although there is supposed to be some big F5 announcement soon.
