Bad, Beautiful, and College: 5 hrs
 Ok. This is NOT a joke. We paid a photographer, who
 claimed to be a professional, $250 for a family photo
 shoot. Please see these FOR REAL photos she
 delivered to us....She said the shadows were really
 bad on the beautiful, clear, sunny day and that her
 professor never taught her to retouch photos. Feel

You get what you pay for…

Since when is $250 considered “cheap” for a family photo? what lol 


When you value a freelancer’s actual talent enough to pay then real money for doing a real job. 


Yeah, $250 is definitely on the lower end for professional photographs. I have quite a few photographer friends.

As a mercenary soul-caputurer myself, yeah, you get what you fucking pay for.

Photography has the same costs as any other business. The price you charge has to cover the cost of materials (film if you’re shooting old school, prints, maintenance for your camera whether analog or digital), labor (time spent setting up and shooting), and overhead (gas, food, website hosting costs, etc. if you need it to do some part of the job, it’s in your overhead). Now those are just your operating costs, if you want to actually make money you have to add a percentage for profit (e.g. operating costs + 20%).

Let me give you non-photographers a frame of reference here. Paying $250 for a single-day private photo session on location (which means travel costs on top of everything else), is the equivalent of paying $50 for a huge ornate wedding cake you ordered the day before the wedding.This ‘tog is still severely unprofessional and unqualified, though. I consider myself still a beginner but taking good photos in bright sunlight isn’t hard, I do it all the time. Like literally three-quarters of my flickr is all natural light shoots, it’s easier than studio shoots in some ways (light source, directionality, and intensity is constant on a clear day; you don’t have to worry about flash timing; the only thing you need to control for is your camera settings, etc.). I really don’t understand how they screwed this shoot so badly.Other things wrong with this cheap shoot:Out of focusLow contrastLow saturationBad white balanceGrainyThere’s really no excuse for this, it’s all very basic stuff. I took ONE photography class in college and I’ve only been shooting off and on for a couple of years, and I could still do a better shoot than this. It’s not that this person’s professor didn’t teach them how to retouch photos, their professor didn’t teach them how to shoot at all.
