All the photos you took on the day on a usb stick please
I tremble with fear when I hear this..this is how it usually goes.
A: No there are reasons for being selective with the images, facial expressions, technical reasons etc
Q: But I'd like to see all the photos
A: Fine we can meet up and I can show you the photos I have rejected
Meets client and then they decide that..
There are very good reasons for not using all the images, unless you want tongues sticking out or goofy looking faces. I've done this a few times and openly showed people a selected number of "reject shots"
What's wrong with people it's as if they feel you're holding back on them do you need to see 14 shots of the same thing or do you trust the person to give you the best shot out of a sequence. A typical shoot to CD final no. of images for me is something around 200 shots (sometimes a little more depends on the time) out of that if they ever bother to make an album (a lot don't) they have to pick about 50 of those. I'd shoot about 700 images for a wedding I have increased this number if you get someone who's a blinker or makes odd faces, you have to be selective not every single shot works I can't understand why people think you should give them all your photos, esp since we're now firmly into "budget" days for many wedding jobs.
Fine pay me £2000 and you can have the lot them, one potential client even asked for all the RAW shots. I of course refused and promptly lost interest in that job (ie I was no way going to do it)
Rant mode is now ...partly "off"
