A Secret.... Shhhh! - Columbus MS Photographer

(photo taken around 2007)

Im going to share a secret with you.... one that most professional photographers wish you knew, but cant bear to be the one to share it.

Are you ready?

One of the worst things you can say to a professional photographer is...

"Your camera takes such good photos."

Seriously... we hate it. On the surface, it looks pretty benign, but if you look at it in reality, what you are really saying is that anyone with that camera could do just as good a job.... when in reality, most of us have spent years honing into our style and craft, and spend hours upon hours in front of a camera editing.

Hopefully, you dont hate me for being honest.... either way, you should read this article - seriously, please go click it (so few of you read the last one I posted, it hurt my feelings)... this is a much better explanation - and it even has pictures to prove the point.

And this, my dear friends, is again... why you hire a professional... :)

So far, Ive had 2 people take me up on my January special - so that means Ive got 3 spots left.... for those lucky 3, if you book before Feb 1st, then you get a free $50 print credit with your session (session doesnt have to be before Feb 1st, just booked by then)... Email me at talleyimages@yahoo.com if you have any questions or to book your session... hurry, time is running out... :)

That is a great article! My pictures are at best like the first ones. Very well said and I am sure it is frustrating to hear that! Love all of your pictures Addie!
