THINGS YOU WILL NEVER HEAR A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER SAY: By Missy Mwac
"Feel free to RE-edit my images any way you'd like and then share them on Facebook."
"No, no…by all means…you go ahead and pose yourself. "
"Come on, weather…I need a bright sunny day and NO shade!"
"Okay, clothing suggestions: you wear stripes; you wear polka dots; you wear a “Hello Kitty” shirt and you wear a suit. "
"I wish I could edit this wedding forever. "
"I can make a homemade meal for dinner, help with homework, give baths AND edit this mountain of images tonight. All before 8pm."
"I keep my prices as low as possible because I enjoy working really hard for less than minimum wage."
"I know it’s the middle of the reception and I’ve been working hard for 7 hours, but I really really don’t want a cold margarita."
"Hey, you’re a photographer, too, huh? Well, I was photographing MY client here, but go ahead and take the spot and we’ll go somewhere else. "
“Mommy loves it when you get all needy and clingy when she’s on a deadline.”
"No, please. I don’t want any new equipment. "
"Make sure to bring your baby in hungry and without a nap."
"I didn’t really learn anything, but dammit, I am so happy I spent $1000 on this workshop anyway."
"I’m really thinking that a 30x40 canvas might be too big for you to enjoy."
"Are you kidding? Put away your checkbook. I don’t need money…the EXPOSURE I’ll get from this is enough."
"Hey, thanks everybody in this Facebook Photography Group for your unsolicited opinions. Keep ‘em coming!"
"This here is a USB drive and you will pass it down from generation to generation."
"OH! You stole my picture and posted it, pretending like it’s yours. That’s so FUN!"
"Thank God there’s a DJ at this wedding acting like my second shooter."
"OMG! You are SO right. It IS just “pushing a button.”
