Once again, our favorite lady, Melissa Munding of Melissa Munding Photography comes through with a bit of gold for all of us.
Coming from a fine art background, she’s been torn to shreds in her past and developed strategies to learn and grow from it.
So with no Ado whatsoever, from Melissa:
Jasen Arias is a co-owner of Studio Moirae, a leading Phoenix based Studio offering outstanding photography services to discerning clients, all over the Phoenix area.
OK, so its been a couple weeks since I first posted about us starting up a studio and gave out a bit of advice on how to find a space, what to look for and what to watch out for. So whats next? Next is taking the studio from bland to bam!! BUT FIRST!
The beta of Photoshop CS6 is officially ready for download and we can’t wait to dive into it and learn all of the beautiful new features. But what exactly are these new features? How do we even find them in the program? Overhwelmed? We were too until we found this.
Pixiq has released a new Blog Post that gives you some useful tips if you are already using Lightroom 4. If you are considering upgrading, its well worth a read too!
The differences between Lightroom 3 and 4 are not insignificant, and it’s worth your time to learn about them. Lightroom 4 sells for $149 or less and is a vital component of many photographers post processing. We’ve made the upgrade and are enjoying the new features and workflow efficiencies offered by the new version.
Are there any other differences you’ve noticed? Let us know.

Studio Moirae is comprised of the team of Jasen Arias and Christy Shipp, with Nick Harper as an associate photographer. They are a Phoenix, AZ based company offering wedding, family, and event photography. They are good friends to us at ShutterCliq, and when they offered to write about their storefront and the process involved in getting it leased, reno’ed and ready for business, we jumped at the chance. It’s a concept that many of us struggle with and we hope that their insight helps you to consider many of the factors involved.

From the article: “If you have seen Peter Lik’s work in person then you understand that it’s impossible to put into words the look and quality of his prints. Peter’s photography (and his post production) is fantastic, but what really makes his work stand out is his printing and presentation. If his images were printed on standard photo paper at a standard size, his work would not have the same “wow” factor.”
It is inevitable…no really…a disgruntled customer is going to pop up at some point in your career. And there are many ways to deal with it. Sometimes, no matter what you try, it’s going to court. You’ll need to know what in the heck to do.
