That first maternity I was telling you guys about? Well I finished the photos and posted them on FB for the mom and dad. Then I sent her the files. WEELLLLLL....I just was looking through photos on FB and she has cropped one of my photos (you can STILL SEE part of my watermark) changed it some sort of nasty brown conversion, photoshopped text on the bottom, and put it next to an ultrasound pic. Oh my goodness. I know this isn't the last time this is going to happen, but seriously?!
that sucks. I have them sign a contract saying that they won't alter any of the images, including the web images. I can't remember if I had that blurb in there for my PB images or not, I'll have to look.
That sucks though. At least your watermark is mostly gone for the yucky conversion ... you don't want credit for that part!
If you don't already, you need to get that in a signed contract. That bugs me on a major scale. I've worked mostly w/ friends so far and haven't really run up against that. My biggest 'offender' is my family. *sigh* So I don't give them photos very often.
Oh man, how irritating!!!! People just don't understand the work and the artistry of it. They don't understand that the entire photograph is COMPOSED a certain way and every aspect, lighting, etc. is executed carefully and intentionally I could understand using a cropped version for an avatar or profile pic but any recreating of a photo would make me mad!!
Yeah, I'm annoyed. BUT, I don't want to saying anything because then she might get offended and not let me do her newborn photos...which I REALLY want to do. Guess I'll just put up with it for the time being.
I don't have any sort of contract. Guess I should look into getting one?
