What do the phrases “Can you upload these to facebook?”, “Can you send me the RAWs?”, and “Is that how you’re going to edit it?” have in common? For starters, they’re all reasons why I, personally, am not cut out to be a portrait photographer. They’re also playfully accurate quips used in this humorous take on some of the gear grinding things oblivious clients say to photographers.
To be fair, most clients have no idea how offensive some of the stuff they say to us is. (And they clearly do not realize how reactive our sensitive artistic egos are to the absurdity they sometimes come up with. Like when they bring along their iPhone to a photoshoot and ask you take a couple pics of them with it for Instagram.)
You can’t really get upset at the clients, so sometimes the best way to deal with it is to poke fun and have a nice laugh at it instead. This video, made by Clint Decker and The Crossroads Photoclub, can help you do just that. Take a look:
