Be careful about adopting this mindset. Of course you want to satisfy your customer, no dispute there. Most of your clients will not have a discerning eye, its up to you to determine quality and strive for it. I'm not trying to be a jerk when I say this but actually encouraging you to not settle for mediocre because thats all your clients expect.

I agree completely. Sort of what I was implying.

I agree with both of you. yes I do not want to have them tell me what is good and what isnt. That is why I posted that photo here. it was a new process and it was helpful to find out that it had way too much yellow. I just didnt see it. but i can promise that i will from now on because i will remember this conversation. But Michael, i think that since the consumer has infinite options out there when it come to the arts. They are going to gravitate towards the style that they like whether they can or cant do it themselves. I wasnt implying that I show these to my client and then have them suggest changes. that is like you going to the mechanic and telling him what to do. I just mea that if my client likes the style that I produce, then they are aware of that style coming into the shoot and I take it that they like it when they contact me to begin with. you follow me?

And I absolutely appreciate you two taking the time interact with me. I enjoy it.

So do I - its fun!

I do know what you mean - and I agree that they will most likely gravitate towards a particular style, but its still up to us to make choices. I'd still argue that it doesn't matter what they like. But we're sort of talking about different ends of the process. The 'before' the shoot and the 'after' the shoot.

Oh thanks a lot! If you saw my stuff on Flickr then you've seen it all! I've been a designer for about 8-9 years, but I just picked up a camera about 4 months ago. I've been shooting like mad ever since! There's a lot to learn...

yeah, my most current work is on my facebook or my website. I am all over the place with editing. I am still trying to find my style. I am leaning toward the vintage. I just hope attracts clients. Funny yousay that you are a designer. I do a little graphic design as a hobby. I have taught myself Photoshop and I do all of the graphics work for my church.

You'll find it. It'll hit you in the face pretty hard and then you'll wonder, 'how did I not realize that this is what I wanted?' You'll get there.

A little graphic design huh? Nice - but don't use photoshop for it! Ah...killing me. Rasterized text is the worst...haha. Get yourself InDesign and learn it!

I think your vintage needs a bit more tweeking and I agree the tilts don't work here.
