Re: Commercial Photography and Billing Insights and Questions

What do you need to retouch? If its converging verticals, well Im afraid you should be using the right equipment (5x4 or 10x8, yes its still available I used it this morning) or swallow the post processing costs along with colour correction blown highlights etc. The problem is now a days people are trying to charge for everything! You shouldn't charge for blown highlights (that's just purely bad lighting technique) or technical cock ups, that's down to the photographer to accept the costs. I charge a flat retouching fee for things beyond my control, for example the wrong labels on products etc but not for any errors I may have caused.

I see so many so called photographers just snapping away digitally and actually forgetting the basics of photography of exposure, composition etc and deciding to sort that out in post production. Thats wrong totally wrong.
if it wasn't for clients i would be a poor man, but happy!
