When it comes to official photoshoots or portraits we don’t trust just anybody to take our photo. Although nowadays anyone can take a high resolution image just holding their phone camera, this doesn’t make everyone a professional. It doesn’t mean that you are a professional even if you have the best DSLR camera in the market. Having money to spend on a camera doesn’t mean that you also know how to use it or know how to process it in photoshop. Both things need a lot of practicing and hard work.
These are the real faces of the family that hired a professional photographer to take their portraits.
A so-called professional photographer called them and asked if they wanted her to take their photos.
When the photoshoot ended, the woman said that it went great and that she would be in touch in a few weeks.
The weeks turned into months with the woman being nowhere to be found and the family thinking that they got scammed.
Finally, the woman contacted the family saying that she would send a package with the images in a disk.
All members of the family started laughing once they saw the pictures and didn’t get mad at all.
The alleged photographer said that she never learned how to correct bad shadows and that in case the result was disappointing she would retouch them.
They decided to say that they were satisfied, since there was no way that they would get them back in better shape.
This was all a chain of mistakes that the family made by first saying ‘yes’ to this woman’s proposal and second not being in touch with her about the progress. Having some knowledge about photography and editing, I know that working on pictures doesn’t take more than a week when you are a professional.
