Bad, Beautiful, and College: 5 hrs Ok. This is NOT a joke. We paid a photographer, who claimed to be a professional, $250 for a family photo shoot. Please see these FOR REAL photos she delivered to us....She said the shadows were really bad on the beautiful, clear, sunny day and that her professor never taught her to retouch photos.

You get what you pay for… Since when is $250 considered “cheap” for a family photo? what lol When you value a freelancer’s actual talent enough to pay then real money for doing a real job. Yeah, $250 is definitely on the lower end for professional photographs. I have quite a few photographer friends. As a mercenary soul-caputurer myself, yeah, you get what you fucking pay for. Photography has the same costs as any other business. The price you charge has to cover the cost of materials (film if you’re shooting old school, prints, maintenance for your camera whether analog or digital), labor (time spent setting up and shooting), and overhead (gas, food, website hosting costs, etc. if you need it to do some part of the job, it’s in your overhead). Now those are just your operating costs, if you want to actually make money you have to add a percentage for profit (e.g. operating costs + 20%). Let me give you non-photographers a frame of reference here. Paying $250 for a single-day private photo session on location (which means travel costs on top of everything else), is the equivalent of paying $50 for a huge ornate wedding cake you ordered the day before the wedding.This ‘tog is still severely unprofessional and unqualified, though. I consider myself still a beginner but taking good photos in bright sunlight isn’t hard, I do it all the time. Like literally three-quarters of my flickr is all natural light shoots, it’s easier than studio shoots in some ways (light source, directionality, and intensity is constant on a clear day; you don’t have to worry about flash timing; the only thing you need to control for is your camera settings, etc.). I really don’t understand how they screwed this shoot so badly.Other things wrong with this cheap shoot:Out of focusLow contrastLow saturationBad white balanceGrainyThere’s really no excuse for this, it’s all very basic stuff. I took ONE photography class in college and I’ve only been shooting off and on for a couple of years, and I could still do a better shoot than this. It’s not that this person’s professor didn’t teach them how to retouch photos, their professor didn’t teach them how to shoot at all.

Dad, Family, and Fire: Meghan McCain @MeghanMcCain I love you forever - my beloved father @SenJohnMcCain My father, United States Senator John Sidney McCain III, departed this life today. I was with my father at his end, as he was with me at my beginning. In the thirty-three years we shared together, he raised me, taught me, corrected me, comforted me, encouraged me, and supported me in all things. He loved me, and I loved him. He taught me how to live. His love and his care, ever present, always unfailing, took me from a girl to a woman- and he showed me what it is to be a man All that I am is thanks to him. Now that he is gone, the task of my lifetime is to live up to his example, his expectations, and his love. My father's passing comes with sorrow and grief for me, for my mother, for my brothers, and for my sisters. He was a great fire who burned bright, and we lived in his light and warmth for so very long. We know that his flame lives on, in each of us. The days and years to come will not be the same without my dad-but they will be good days, filled with life and love, because of the example he lived for us. Your prayers, for his soul and for our family, are sincerely appreciated. My father is gone, and I miss him as only an adoring daughter can. But in this loss, and in this sorrow,I take comfort in this: John McCain, hero of the republic and to his little girl, wakes today to something more glorious than anything on this earth. Today the warrior enters his true and eternal life, greeted by those who have gone before him, rising to meet the Author of All Things: "The dream is ended: this is the morning. Earlier, Meghan McCain tweeted about the passing of her father, Sen. John McCain.

 My father, United States Senator John Sidney McCain III, departed this life today.
 I was with my father at his end, as he was with me at my beginning. In the thirty-three years we
 shared together, he raised me, taught me, corrected me, comforted me, encouraged me, and
 supported me in all things. He loved me, and I loved him. He taught me how to live. His love and
 his care, ever present, always unfailing, took me from a girl to a woman- and he showed me

 All that I am is thanks to him. Now that he is gone, the task of my lifetime is to live up to his
 example, his expectations, and his love.
 My father's passing comes with sorrow and grief for me, for my mother, for my brothers, and for
 my sisters. He was a great fire who burned bright, and we lived in his light and warmth for so
 very long. We know that his flame lives on, in each of us. The days and years to come will not
 be the same without my dad-but they will be good days, filled with life and love, because of
 the example he lived for us.
 Your prayers, for his soul and for our family, are sincerely appreciated.
 My father is gone, and I miss him as only an adoring daughter can. But in this loss, and in this
 sorrow,I take comfort in this: John McCain, hero of the republic and to his little girl, wakes today
 to something more glorious than anything on this earth. Today the warrior enters his true and
