1. You made me look fat
News flash: you look fat because you ARE.
2. Pictures dey dou
Then there the impatient ones. They expect you to give them the pictures right then and there. It’s as if they expect you to carry your laptop and photocopier in your back pocket. They just don’t understand that these things take lot of time. The editing part alone could take up to a week.
3. Yaar ek event hai cover karlogay? It would be good for your portfolio too
This simply means your’re not getting paid. Run.
4. Mujay patli dekhana, beta
When I’m covering weddings or paid events, I always bump into these really fat old ladies who want me to take their pictures. The first sentence that comes out of their mouths is “Mujay patla kar deyna, beta” or “Beta, meray motapay ko chupana, okay?” I’m a photographer, not a magician.
5. Srif humarey relatives ki pictures leyna
There are those people who expect you to know who the bride’s and groom’s families are beforehand. For example, I was recently covering a wedding from the bride’s side and the bride’s mother told me to cover her family and relatives only. Here’s the difficult part; who the hell are the bride’s family and relatives? It’s like they expect me to have my secret agents everywhere, telling me who’s pictures to take and when.
6. No credits to the photographer
Person after reviewing a picture from the camera, “Yaar kya tight picture hai. Amazing camera.” Uploads picture on Facebook, doesn’t give you picture credits. There’s a special place in hell for these types of people.
7. Sub ki pictures letay ho, meri nahi letay
The sad life of a photographer. Like I was born to take pictures/DPs for free.
8. While taking pictures of the bride and groom alone
At weddings, there’s mostly a photo session of the bride and groom only. The main problem that comes between these two is… their FAMILY. Siblings will bother them when they make poses, parent will say “Haww quloo Haram” and make them stand 6 inches away from each other. Most photographers end up asking the family to leave the room to give the bride and groom some space. Some families even start giving their own stupid tips about how the photographer should take the pictures (wasting my precious time). Sometimes, I just feel like saying, ‘Here, take my camera and take the pictures.’ Source
