How long to post casual photos of friends?
5 months ago

Hello all,

I recently went to a halloween party and took some photos of some of the freaks (my gf's friends) that were in attendance. I am kinda new to photography with a DSLR (Canon 70D) and used the opportunity of the party to take some photos. I really wanted to focus on getting good shots so I could bring them into photoshop and start learning how to edit photos well.

The day after the party there was a request for me to give the photos to everyone so that they could post to their stupid FB pages. I told them that I will be going through them and doing some adjustments before I post to my flickr page. They can then download them there and do whatever they want with them. This caused a huge sh*t storm because people could not get the photographs that I took immediately. I have a rather busy schedule and it was a week before I got to editing them by cropping, adding some sharpening masks etc.. I posted and now everyone is still mad because they want all of the photos posted rather than the ones that I deemed "flattering".

I do not take photos for money and am currently considering myself in the practice stage of my development, especially with enhancing photos in photoshop.

I feel upset that everyone was making demands on me and I know that if I just post them immediately I would probably not be as proactive with working on the photos in post.

I also am feeling very anti instant with a skill that I want to develop.

Question-

Is it wrong for me to feel this way about making my friends wait for photos?

Because I take their picture does that mean they can make demands about what I do with it? I am not using it to make $, nor am I just never giving it to them.

How does the forum feel about this topic?

Also, sorry if you all have discussed this before.
