Hey folks, I hope that this blog post finds you well? For those of you that are UK based wow, what a change in temperature! It looks as though Autumn has taken the express train to our shores! It has been bloomin’ cold!!
The topic I would like to briefly touch upon is how photographers describe their work when advertising. Lately I have seen a number of adverts for wedding photographers describing their images as amazing, beautiful, breath taking, gorgeous and so forth. Now, I am by no means the world’s greatest photographer, but I feel the need to comment on this.
Personally, I would never refer to my work using such adjectives – instead I would refer to an image I post as a favourite, and excersize a little modesty, because not everone will think the same as me and I would think their opinions of me would be that I was rather deluded.
I don’t want this to come across as having rant, or having a go at other photographers – but in my opinion it is up to the potential client/viewer to decide whether or not your images are amazing/beautiful etc.
So what are your thoughts on this topic? Do you agree with me? Are you a photographer who describes your work with such adjectives as breath taking? Please feel free to leave your comments below.
Thanks for reading!
