A very different mentality . . .

You ever took pictures of friends and you applied what you thought was best to create the images: good composition, good lighting, good back/fore-ground, and good expression, only to have your friends picking ones that not your top choices?

I guess that's what professional photographers have to deal with everyday. In a way, I feel sorry that they have to forego their standard to satisfy their customer's preference. Most people are not trained with the eyes of a seasoned craftsman. Well, they are the ones, after all, paying for the product. Customer is always right. That's what they said.

I cringed every time I saw the photographer showing his shots to the clients right at the scene (that happens very frequently these days). That's before he had a chance to apply the other 50% (editing) that makes a good image.
