Response to: RE: What camera are you using

That last bit surprises me: "Music for slideshows". Why? Actually I hardly ever use slideshows in iPhoto, I think they're annoying, especially with sound, but I guess to each his own for a consumer app. But in a workflow application?


I take it this also means that export of a set to iPhoto is not an option. That is a pity, because I can imagine that Wedding phtographers could sell/give a (jpeg, not raw) iPhoto library to their customers.

    Actually, I'm surprised that wanting music surprises you. I see Aperture as a full-fledged pro tool. One of the important functions for wedding and portrait photographers is the presentation of the shoot. Being able to generate a beautiful slideshow with music right out of Aperture is vital. There's an old rule in wedding photography (of which I don't personally subscribe to, but will pass on because many do): "Make em cry and they will buy." The best way to make them cry is a touching slideshow with music.

      This is slightly off-topic, but I’m wondering where these wedding photographers get the music that makes their customers cry. I suspect they’re using recognizable songs “borrowed” from CDs the bride supplied rather than creating original music in GarageBand/Sonicfire or using royalty-free music.... —David

        Definitely using existing music from CDs they already have. Most of these folks aren't musicians :)
