Don't add filters to my photos (pretty please) // Just My Opinion

Queenstown Photographer

 

YOU MAY BE ASKING YOURSELF,"WHY THE HECK DO YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH FILTERS? DO YOU EVER STOP COMPLAINING?!" .. Read on to find out, AND RIGHT AFTER THIS, I PROMISE.

 

I can only summarise it like this. Imagine, if you will, that you are having a bomb-ass dinner party. You’ve just nailed the main course (Lemon glazed shoulder of lamb, obviously) and you’re about to serve it. But then, while you are putting the left over ingredients away, some asshole adds artichoke and a whole cup of brown sugar and serves it for you, announcing to the whole party you are the chef… you’d be pissed right? 

 

That sounds like bad news bears for you.

Now imagine you’re a photographer. You’ve slaved over a session and done the final hand off to your client. They say they love it. Few, done! A few hours later, you see they posted the images on Facebook and tagged your photography page (bless you), BUT (dun dun duuuuuuuh) made all the photos you created into black and white using the Instagram filter “Willow”, FREAKIN WILLOW!? Wow… you stumble back form your computer a bit confused.. they said they loved your photos and couldn’t wait to share them.. yet they used a damn filter off of Instagram to change what they look like!? I single tear falls from your eye… pure disappointment.

 

It's a sad time.

 

When the session ends for you, thats when the REAL work starts for your photographer. They edit, add filters (they have specially created) crop, and create the product you hired them to make. That’s about a 3-4 hour process. Then some turkey turns around and adds a premed filter that is shared with 15 year old girls taking selfies in public bathrooms?! Ain’t nobody got time for that my friend. Below I've included one of my images, then beside it, a filter automatically applied by Instagram.. personally I think the one of the right looks like shit.. but thats just my style. Don't agree? Don't hire me <3.

When you hire your photographer, for your wedding, engagement, boudoir session or family portraits, you are hiring them to do THEIR STYLE. If you don’t like it, hire someone else. Straight up. Don’t be that guy your photographer complains about to all of their other photography friends, nobody likes that guy. Nobody. 

 

Until next time friends, don’t be that guy.
