Why a photographer should be employed

It’s amazing how much work I get correcting the mistakes for people who hired a “photographer” to record events, it’s also amazing that the people think that the low res jpeg can be turned into a large image without noise… I once had some one send me an image and asked me to “clean up the pixels and sharpen the faces” … “have you been watching CSI or NCIS” I asked?

People still believe that there is some program that miraculously renders an amazingly pin sharp image from the low res at night still taken from a CCTV camera.

Sorry for the rant, I just received a request to correct the images of a “photographer” who shot a birthday party on low res JPEG at 4000 ISO … 200 images…

Anyway to cheer myself up from telling someone that the £100 they paid was wasted I have this: http://www.buzzfeed.com/awesomer/photos-you-really-need-to-look-at-to-understand

Does the Ballerina slow down when you look at her?
