Something I hadn't given a lot of thought about is how my customer would preview the photos that we had taken at a photo shoot. I often assumed, or was told, that they were too busy to meet in person to review the pictures. As a result, I would post the shots to a proof page for them to review and give me feedback on the ones that they wanted or had questions about.
To me this feels a bit impersonal. This may just be my preference but I would much rather talk to my client about what they see and get their honest feedback. There is so much we can do to a picture these days that there really aren't too many requests a client can make that we can't accommodate. I feel that without a face-to-face conversation I don't get the chance to make that person as happy as I possibly can.
What are your thoughts? Would you prefer face time with your photographer or do you like the online convenience?
