Hi! Yeah I remember you silly! And I get it developed at longs/walgreen/any local place that prints rolls but instead of getting prints get the CD version, so all the photos will get scanned onto a CD and you pop the CD into your computer and walah.
You’re an absolute delight, thank you for your kind and encouraging words. I hope in the future I become experienced enough to be rewarded.
*tear rolls down from face* Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
THANKKKKK YOUUUUUUUUUUUU! People think it’s as easy as editing on your iPhone but editing softwares are expensive and the hours and minutes put in to make the photo look spectacular, it’s time consuming. We have lives, haha. Also the cost of storage space online and upgrading your equipment, etc.
2 out of 3 don’t pay but instead do a “trade” for like publicity or some sort. A lot of the time I get their products in return (which is nice but doesn’t pay the bills but I’d rather this than no form of gratitude) or the silent treatment after I give them the photos.
I’m not going to complain anymore though I do appreciate all my clients.
I feel like tumblr would be the best place to rant when I don’t feel exactly comfortable sharing my conundrum with close relatives. I’ve been drowning in a pool of demands. Wow didn’t realize how egotistic that sounded. I have people writing me left and right to take pictures of their products and portfolios, etc. but I’m not getting paid, well not all the time. I’ve been using the same camera body since I’ve worked my butt off to buy one over 4 years ago and since then I haven’t gathered enough money to invest in an upgrade. You’d think that with all of the businesses I’ve been shooting for I’d have enough to not have this pointless rant but it’s so frustrating.
All in all, photographers aren’t slaves, please pay us for your service.
Thanks! You’ve been there from the start.
