Recently I had a photoshoot for a client. The first few shots were considerably overexposed. I corrected the lighting, then continued. The rest was fine. But the first poses did not come out the way I had envisioned.
I was able to sort of salvage them, but I am not pleased with the outcome. I had an inclination to just delete them. But I didn't. I gave them to the client along with the others. I did tell them, however, that I was not pleased with the way they came out.
They went ahead and posted them on a social networking site, along with the good ones. Of course, all the best comments come from the crappy ones. The concept was good, and powerful. But from a technical standpoint they just don't work in my opinion. I hate having my name attached to those.
So what would you do?
