Jobs that involve simply taking photos
« on: January 17, 2014, 10:10:09 AM »
A couple of potential jobs I have in the pipeline are for me to take the photos with my camera and then to simply hand the SD cards over to the customers and pass the rights of the work I do for them over to them. At what is being offered for my time and effort I would be more than happy to do this .. do anyone have any comment/advice re any potential "pit falls" .. there is no "porn" involved! The jobs simply involve being with each of the families for a day and taking pictures as and when required.

Looks like there are going to be pitfalls as people seem to expect every shot to be perfect.

To hand the card to the client, you would have to be shooting jpg and, as you say, get it right in camera.  Shooting raw and skills in ACR and Photoshop have made me a bit sloppy I am afraid. You know- "make sure you get the action, I can fix the exposure later " sloppiness.  ....john
