photography makes one sees things from all angles.
Which brings me to a question: how many organisers themselves are photographers as well?
My point is.. since there are many organizers running photo shots around here, they cater to different levels of photographers, and customers have free well to pick what they like, and since he (DP) will not pick sure photo shoots, so no reason for him to feel insulting. especially we can't control how other people doing things or feeling.
Actually, the subject doesn't matter. The SKILLS of the photographers is all that matter. A pro photographers can shoot a CMI models into a worldclass portrait.
So for portrait photographer or wedding outdoor shoot, should the photographers scan the photos first before determining if they want to accept the job? Ugly subjects spoilt his portfolio.
Just look around, how many commercial photographers are here, how many wedding photographers are here, and how many photographers here in CS depend on photography as their rice bowl.
Look at their book, their portfolio and their websites. By and large, there is a minimum quality to all of the images used. They are selling their services, and the images is their brand. They all put the "best foot" forward. Anything less, it's unfathomable to them.
Fast forward to CS photoshoot forum. The organizers are offering a service/product. Should they too not put their best foot forward?
Do you think, if a wedding photographer puts forth CMI bridal pictures, will be able to make ends meet, bring home the "chicken rice". pay the bills ...
And why do we think it's ok for the photoshoot organizers to advertise their shoot with pictures that at bes are CMI? Are they thinking that photographers from CS are blind?
I have a photographer who came asking us to photo them with their handphone camera and put it up so that the model's features can be seen proper and faster. It was the eve of the shoot day.
Lucky the model is having a shoot with another photographer so ask the photographer to do us a favour. He is a friend however... kekeke.
is there really a model look alike here.... 90 percent are better off at the market
