When you have hired one of the best candid wedding photographers in Mumbai and are agog with excitement and are starting to plan your big day, there are certain things you should remember to never ask your photographer. You should understand that professional photographer follows certain rules and asking them to do something which is against their standard operating practice would put them in a tight spot. We have talked to various wedding photographers in Mumbai and after getting all their suggestions we have curated a list of those questions that you should avoid asking your photographer.
Will you give me the rejected photos?
The photographers call them reject photos for several reasons which could be due to unflattering images, improper lighting or they could be blurry and the photographer doesn’t like them to include in their portfolio as it can harm their reputation. Therefore, trust the instinct of your photographer and let them select the best shots from their photoshoot.
Are you shooting in RAW or JPEG format?
It is a technical topic that only photographers understand and appreciate. If you are not sure what either of these two formats can do what are the advantages you would get if you shoot in either of these two formats, then it is best to avoid asking this question.
Can you photoshop that?
All photographers do touchups during the photo editing time to ensure that the photos they want to include in the app portfolio appear perfect. However, if you have no technical knowledge simply ask to photoshop something, then it would sound unprofessional as the question you are asking may make the photograph look unnatural and could harm the reputation of the photographer.
What kind of camera lenses you are using?
If you have good knowledge about cameras, lenses, and flashes, then this question is very natural and the photographer would be quite happy to share what kind of equipment they are using for the photoshoot. However, if you have absolutely no idea about various camera equipment, then asking this question could make the situation awkward (the photographer in turn may ask you some searching questions that could embarrass you).
Can you lower your price if we edit the photos ourselves?
This request is very unprofessional as the photographer offers the complete package as they know what type of photos would look good on their portfolio. If you are not so good with photoshop and make edits that would make their photos look unnatural and professionally edited, then it would reflect on their work which they would not like.
