So I was asked to do a 1 hour shoot for some Christmas cards for a friend, I've shot a lot of their friends with awesome results but I completely failed this morning. First off, we met up around 7:30 AM (still completely dark outside) since they had other plans, next it was 5 Degrees when we did the shoot, I'm used to shooting on the cold since I spend all day on the hills shooting skiers/snowboarders, but I felt soo bad for them since they were all shivering, especially the little girl. I tried discussing poses with them before the shoot, but due to the cold it seemed like we couldn't really get the cooridnation down. I was going to charge them 65hr since i've shot a lot of their friends, plus whatever prints they ordered. What I have decided to do and already told them, I'm going to not charge a sitting fee on this one and give them prints at cost, especially since we were out there for only like 25 minutes due to the cold.....I guess I just don't want to ruin my reputation Here is an example, I'll post the rest up tonight when I get home from work and after I process them all, I just ran this through photoshop with some action, I'll have to re process it when I get home.
