    Doing Weddings - Be Careful!!!

    This guy sure rubbed them the wrong way. I think he shouldn't have shown them the bad shots - I sure never do that.

    For all practical purposes, they've taken Kodak away.

    And he thought that any GWC can just machine gun it and something will come out.

    "Whaddaya mean I gotta aim and focus!"

    This is what happens when one goes with the lowest bidder.

    ROTFLMAO!

    Apparently they paid £1,500. There are a lot of scammers out there!

    Everyone with a DSLR is a photographer, and if the photos turn out bad you can always fix it with Photoshop + plug-ins and 10 layers with mumbo jumbo to save the shoots. I'm sure the next release of PS will help you get back missing head shoots too.
    When the price of one exposure is the same as 1000 exposures, then you know that most of the exposures are worth nothing.

    For that kind of money I might just whore myself out as a wedding photographer!

    With that, we might as well shut off the lights and go home. There's no use taking any more photos, we'll just use what the world has and make anything we want. Sort of like 'Brave New World' music and 'feelies'.

    Why would you say that?

    I'm not a wedding photographer, but I certainly don't think that photographing a wedding competently is "whoring". Even doing it incompetently isn't whoring so much as it is lazy and deceitful.

    You can make a credible argument that wedding photography is more craft than art, though some may disagree even with that.

    They didn't go with the lowest bidder. They paid £1450. They didn't ask cousin Henry with his new DSLR, they chose a firm called 'Fresh Images', advertising as specialists in Wedding and Portrait photography. They got ripped off by shoddy workmanship.
