I wanted to get a simple professional photo of me in my white nursing uniform for graduation. The girl that took my pictures didn?t take more than a few seconds posing me each time, and with each photo she took it showed. Every time she took the picture she seemed unsure of herself and kept asking if I liked it. All the photos had to be cropped because of how off center they were, and she failed to catch details like my hair sticking up onto the nursing hat, my wedding ring and my watch were not on straight est. The angles she photographed made me look like I had a double chin. (I?m an average medium shirt size 6 pants kind of girl.) She said that even though I wanted a traditional portrait she needed to do body poses for company policy. In my white uniform, she told me to lie on the floor. She took about a dozen poses and all of them had something obviously wrong with them. Only because I didnt want to make a scene infront of other customers I bought two 5X7, which that alone was just under 50 bucks.
I called the 1800 # to voice my concern and my suspicions were right. They only get 3 days training and most of that is learning how to use equipment. They have very little education with posing people and you can tell. The customer service rep said that they hear the same complaint often. My opinion; its not worth saving the couple of bucks. Just go to a REAL professional because they know what they are doing and it doesn?t cost much more to get it done right!
