Another example. Awhile back in a photography forum a girl posted that she was having issues with a client being dissatisfied with her son’s senior photos. We were asking what was up and I asked if she could send a link to the gallery. She sent it to me and there were only 12 photos. I asked if there were more and she said those were the only ones that turned out and that’s what she gave the client. They were all really blah, all had a green/yellow cast. I downloaded them in full-resolution to get a 100% view of them. All but two were unacceptably soft in focus and all had terrible ISO noise (grain and color splotches). She shot most of them in a woods and there was harsh light coming in from one angle which added to the bad color/exposure. I told her what I was seeing in the photos. They were also not shot in RAW. I said that with how soft some were, they wouldn’t be able to make a good print over a 4×6 or 5×7. I asked the hypothetical question- “Was your client expecting to be able to make large prints?” She said “I don’t know… we never discussed expectations.” In the metadata I saw they were shot with a T2i and a kit lens.

^ ^There. That is a supposed “professional” advertising and charging money for photos she couldn’t stand behind.
