    maybe you just resize smaller to like 800x600 and add your copyright at the bottom right of the photo, then pass it to them...

    maybe you can add a 50% opacity words saying "if you like this photo and would like to own it, please contact me @*** for the rate. (per photo)"

    i read with interest all the comments and suggestions that were given to you with regards to the topic of $10 ang bao. i guess now you have to decide yourself to be a "good" guy or "bad" guy. when other people are mean does not mean you have to be mean yourself. you have a choice.

    choice 1:

    be a "bad" guy and mess up the wedding photos, charge high for the cd, ask your friend to pay for get the photos, don't give them anything and disappear etc etc. (many suggestions were given in earlier posts )

    choice 2:

    be a "good" guy. do everything properly with professionalism, with the usual post processing, getting into cd and album if needed etc etc. basically treat it as a gift (free) for your friend without any expectation in return. at least you can answer to yourself that you have done your best even when you were not treated the way you should have been treated.

    which one suits your style? there is always a price to pay...

    well , actually I rather chose option 2...cos no point being the bad guy cos wat done is done, if I would to mess up the photos I would not rather help them in the first place , come on, if the couple does not have any ethnics, that's their problem , but for me I would rather to be ' professional'...

    agree with me , anyone ?? ...
    anyone doesnt understand what I meant ??

    Hmm.. true true...

    Well, can conclude something?
    1) Accept or not accept to shoot.
    If accept, shoot well or not?
    If Shoot well, post process or not?
    If post process, give full resolution or small size?
    __________________________________________
    If for you think is professional,
    Accept the shoot and shoot well.
    Post process little abit and give the photos size depending on the amount.
    does this looks nice?

    I've got $6 in an angpow from a wedding couple, as a "brother" cum backup photog.

    I'm not hard-up for cash, I'd probably refund it to the couple. Rather do things for no charge, then to let people think my 1D + 10D + 70-200 + 85 + 50 + 550EX + 430EX cost nothing.

    In my opinion, if you have agreed to help your friends or relative to shoot their wedding for free, you should not be complaining about the size of the "angbao" given. While it is nice for the couple to give a bigger "angbao" as a sign of appreciation, it is not mandatory that it has to be substantial. Some couples give a token "angbao" more for the symbolic gesture than to reimburse the photographer for their effort. Remember that if you offered your photography service free, it should be considered as no monetary gain at all.

    If you feel that you should be reimburse for the effort or for the use of your camera, you should not offer or accept shooting the couple's wedding for free in the 1st place.

    Also if it is a paid shoot, and a fee had been agreed upon, any angbao given is purely as a bonus or a symbolic gesture. $0.01, $1, $10, $100 or even $1000, the "angbao" given is just for good luck, regardless of amount. And an "angbao" should not be expected.

    Indeed, it should not be expected.

    Henceforth I'll either keep it, or return it. Some people MAY think that "OK, good luck symbolism, $6 will do." To prevent it, I'm thinking of returning the money, keep the physical angpow. At no point of time will I want to allow people to think photography (even as a backup) is worth in monetary terms, $6. But at the same time there's the possibility the couple forgot to pass it to me - since that I received was from the mother of the groom.

    In such a case, I'd either do it for FREE (that means, priceless) or for a paid price.

    in the first place, they were the ones who are enaging my service, just that they dun know how much to pay, if the ang bao $10 is inclusive of the whole day's effort , would you be fed up? ask yourself lah,
