So one of my recent clients asked me if I could save some pictures for them. Basically they payed some woman quite a bit of money to shoot their wedding. The pictures came back GARBAGE (i'm looking at them now as they gave me the DVD of all the shots). I look at the MetaData to see what setting and camera she's using. First it's a 1D Mark III (frigging $10k camera) She's shooting jpg resolution 3888 x 2592 (should be shooting raw with 5616 x 3744 resolution) And she's shooting indoor pictures with no flash and seemingly no knowledge of what a friggin white balance setting is. Everything is yellow. Now I'm sure that she could fix this is issue if she wanted, but it makes me sick to think that this woman charged my (new) clients money for ruining their wedding pictures, and they're so upset that they don't want to give her another cent for editing them herself. They'd rather give them to me, because they know I know what I'm doing, after shooting pictures of a reception they had just recently (with a 450D and 18-55mm the whole time). If only I'd known them before. Could of had some decent pictures. Who the hell owns 10k worth of camera and doesn't take a friggin photography lesson?
