We’ve all encountered those clients whose tedious demands have left us feeling exhausted. So imagine how this photographer felt after submitting his images, only to receive a 30-page document of feedback, including analytical shot breakdowns.
Media outlet DCFever reports that one newlywed couple in Hong Kong submitted a “lab-report-like” document of feedback to their photographer upon receiving the photos of their big day. The pair allegedly went into painstaking detail, describing how unsatisfactory they felt the photos were. They had printed off the images, aligning them in the document with text boxes containing their opinion. Amongst their advice were comments regarding the rule of thirds and how it should always be followed, remarks on framing the subjects more carefully, and their express disapproval of the “overexposed backdrop.”
The document has become a topic of debate amongst Chinese social media users. Some felt the comments were fair, as the photos didn’t meet the standards you’d expect when exchanging money for the job, while others defended the images by saying they were yet to be retouched by the photographer.
Do you think it was fair of the client to do this? How would you react to such vocal criticism of your work from one of your clients?
