I don't know about PV but I live in Cabo. It is purty calm here as far as anyone trying to kidnap people.. I would keep a good hold on you'r camera thoe.. But that is advised anywhere you go! As for the girls the worst is you will hear local men whistle at you and scream how hot you are ;-D

Hey Heavenly... just for the record... this 'Cruiseboat Photoshoot' event was held 9 months ago.  There are however HUNDREDS of amazing photos available to preview on this thread that were taken at a few of the same locations we'll be using at the next 'Cruiseboat Photoshoot' on Oct 13th of 2013.  Here's a link to that 6 day event... to be hosted on a much newer cruiseship... borat

I don't know people's lives but some people may be balancing the budget, fighting eviction, dealing with a super storm, relationship issues, legal battles, technical issues, and just life in general.

The artsy fartsy creative types are not the most organized and linear thinkers. They tend to be perfectionistic and it's never good enough to release. They don't subscribe to a revise-and-resubmit mentality or it's good enough,...

Dear Mellissa:
Nor should it take an entire year.
Have you received all the images yet?
If not, do you know who to dunn?
Do you have a collection agency? :-)

I'm on IM on FB with another model I know well and she reports that she has written on off some delinquent togs.

GARY, is the attendance lower this year because of economy, fuel prices, or did you ban those who didn't do their post production and get images to the models yet? LOL.

-----
On topic this topic but separate from this shoot, I just did a humdinger of a fairly complicated shoot involving models in the double digits, only 5 models made it to the grand piano, a Homage a la Herb Ritts reprise. Total of 19 on closed set. Yani's "9 in nothing" in Mexico inspired me to try "9 in nothing on a 9' grand." But recruiting 9 real models without lowering standards, with my budget was...not feasible.

For one segment of the shoot, we intentionally and literally dropped an upright from about three stories to smash it to smithereens and put a bloodied and bruised model under the debris for a shot titled "Killer Piano!"

No matter how I run the optimization matrix, I can't achieve my dual goals of SPEED *and* QUALITY with the available talent and tools that I have.

PROCEDURAL MODIFICATION: So I'm implement a modification to the production process and inserted a time consuming step--an INTERIM RELEASE. This is quick and dirty. So we can see results "immediately"--within a week. In this case, I'm going to give myself months to muck with the images, fiddle faddle, write notes, consult with experts, submit for peer review, etc. ad nauseam. The final archival quality work is intended for MFA committee, digital archivist, and future anthropologists who will study our era!

Quit checking the forum and edit some photos :-)

I am--I'm searching for my post production notes that I posted somewhere here. How do I most efficiently and intuitively search for all and only my posts on this forum?

I went to "forums" and used the Search features
http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop … moid=JOPCB and after multiple attempts in about 15 minutes, I still don't have what I seek. :-(.

Yo JT... I guess you'll have to come on the Nov 2nd (2014) Cruiseboat Photoshoot (listed in this forum) and create some more... lol

Me thinks we're supposed to tune into the telepathic channel. [As you know, I use it a lot since my mondo words and few images fail to communicate the complexities and nuances my neural pathways conjure up!] ;-)

Dear Mellissa,
You're one of the nicest people I know.
I mean that sincerely.
So I take your viewpoint seriously!
I'm just trying to analyze and assess why it takes so long for photographers as a group, and sometimes me personally/professionally, to produce images expeditiously.

The litany is long.
Even if we leave life and the human foibles that we have to deal with the technical aspects can be challenging.

Let me start part of the litany, LOL.
* I've had drives fail more than once.
Attempt to replace them but the store sold the wrong drives.
Returned drives. Correct ones may not be in stock.
Cables--odd angles. Don't want to break anything so wait for qualified tech.

* Recently MacBook DVD drive gave error.
Idiosyncratic--don't know what caused it. Online no help.
Without really changing anything -- works now.
Two days shot.

* Power cable came loose during download.

* Perfectionism. Some people don't want to leave well enough alone.

OK. I need to go back to doing post production and not writing about it BUT one last jab,
* Trying to document the process using TigerText but the [expletive deleted] software has removed the "Forever" option and so I took time out of the post production process to file a written complaint with the company. AND

* Now I have to figure out another method to do documentation. Would like it to be HIPAA compliant.  [Perfectionistic personal preference. :-)] Finding another tool that is HIPAA compliant, has equivalent EOU, then learning that tool takes time and may take money.

To be continued...[but who knows when]

Thanks for taking our call today about her trip tomorrow to LAX and the Nov 2 cruise.

As you know, I'm nominating someone with whom I have worked a few times with and am impressed with her show-up-ability! [just made that up].
