This may simply involve the term, "professionalism," but I must ask.. I've seen many pictures of both kids and adults, and many of them, unless in the modeling-type threads, are a face only a mother could love.. As a photographer, and I'm being serious, so don't react from the hip-how do you admire the homely subject and talk to the mother like the kid is good-looking, etc? I'm not looking to belittle anyone, but I'm really asking what techniques are employed when a parent of an ugly kid comes to you and expects great shots.. I've seen several kids on here that are simply a face that only the mother could love, and they're asking for critique.. Do you look at the curtains...Do you look at the head position..What do you do? This is a photography forum, and, 'et's face it-there are some ugly people that want pictures taken...Let's be honest... What are you techniques for judging these photos and seeming chipper about doing it...? Thanks for the info..
