Photographer, tech head, and extreme sport enthusiast.

I'm an amateur who likes to shoot everything from portraits to landscapes. My favorite venues are half way up a 14k mountain, Ontario in Fall, and the Mediterranean at sunset.

I love talking technology, new equipment, and Canon lenses.

you should talk to a specialist in the field to look at solutions that fit your needs better. - Exactly. This isn't the place either.

GoPro. Or talk to someone who actually knows something about your industry and technology for it (i.e. warehouse and DC machine vision solutions, etc.). That is all quite off topic here though.

comment What size and resolution should I make digital files that I am selling to clients?
This isn't an answer, but frankly your argument is a good reason why not to give digital images to clients. You are right, they will inevitably screw up the cropping. That's just how it works if you sell the files.

comment Should I ask the hotel permission to shoot potraits in their room/suite?
@whatsisname I'm not going to argue how/if you could get caught by hotel staff doing something they may not allow. If you want to take the chance because you are sure either 1.You won't get caught or 2.You are certain you aren't breaking rules - then go for it.

comment Can I use any brand of flash?
Between this: Can a Nikon/Canon flash be used on the other brand of camera? and this: Are Yongnuo flashes interchangeable between dslr's or are they brand specific? I think you will find your answer.

Seems important to note that hotels are considered private property if you believe they are. I agree the question isn't about the hotel fee.

I'm not sure what the quote really says about this particular situation. That is generally speaking about private vs public property and your general rights to photograph. In this particular case, it's about paying for use of a space and if the use includes photography or not. Your anecdote about taking casual pictures of friends is even further from applicable to this situation.

comment Lighting for Clothing Photoshoot
You have all of the equipment listed? I don't get why you wouldn't set it up and take a shot then. Determine if the results are what you desire, and if not come back here and provide the example and what you don't like about it. You need experience and trial by learning at this point.

Michael that is a great idea! I'll look into that but feel free to add it in if you'd like, it sounds like you are far and away the expert in this area so I'm very comfortable with any additions you might make! Cheers!
