OK... perhaps a few actually can take pictures, but MAN it just turns my stomach to see the crap that some people are paying for. I have a co-worker who hired a bottom feeder to shoot her wedding... the photographer told her it would be one of her first weddings, and only charged them $400... she gave the girl a CD with her pictures on it, and let the girl do her own prints. My friend asked if I could "make a few a bit more spiffy" and gave me the CD. I opened up a picture and my reaction was "wtf? WTF? WTF!" Here's the EXIF of the first picture I opened: Camera Model: KODAK Z650 ZOOM DIGITAL 1/15s f/3.0 ISO160 8mm (35mm eq:48mm) Exposure Mode: Auto White Balance: Auto ISO Speed Rating: 160 There was zero post processing done. I asked the friend of mine if this photographer was just a friend or something, and she said no... the person advertises, goes to bridal shows, etc... and that there are three or four others in the same price range in the area as well. Wow. WOW. Since this is a friend of mine, I am going to "spifify" some shots and print up a little album (4x6's) as a Christmas present... but it makes me sick to think that somebody is out there charging people money for this crap.
