Honestly It doesnt matter. Those kid's parents will pay good money for anything, reguardless of poses or quality.. Trust me, I looked through my friends year book this year and I was amazed at the lack of quality in abouit 80% of the pictures..

Most of them could take a better Senior picture with own PnS, Myspace style.

He is not kiddin, photographers notice things that are not right with the photos, parents don't, they see the child and want to see a good CLEAR, CLEAN photo with kid smiling.


A picture is something you draw, A photograph is something you create. ;)

That's the weird thing about the whole photography for the masses jive. I had a friend get all mad and irritated because the photographer for her daughter's senior pictures decided to blurr the background for a photo shoot in which she picked the background scenery. Bad thing is that photographer told her they can't have both her daughter and the background in focus (supposedly, technically impossible). I haven't seen the pictures, but I'm guessing the photographer wanted the attention on the subject rather than the background, after all he wasn't taking snapshots. But my friend and her daughter wanted him to...I'd hate to be in that situation.

I find that you have to ask what customers have seen in other photographs that bothered them. I was interviewing a client last night that told me she had seen the photos from her highschool reunion recently and she noticed a bunch of inconsistencies that she expected the photographer (getting paid) should have caught. Needless to say, I paid attention to her and will now have my eye on those things as well.

I think that is what is key, as a paid photographer, our/mine/your job is to give the client what they want even if aesthetically you disagree. Then there's the other side of the coin, why would you put your name on something you know looks like s-I mean not so nice.:) That's why I shoot for myself, I had enough of that stuff when I shoot video for weddings.
