We're doing marketing materials for a customer and they have a huge factory
which they want to feature in some of their reports and pamphlets. No problem.
After a quick look around it becomes very clear that this is a place with bright
lights and deep shadows. (To get good exposures with the latitude to cover the
exposure, film was the best option since HDR images force you to spend a lot of
time massaging layers when it's simpler to do a scan. My theory is that HDR was
created at the behest of graphics arts schools to manufacture hourly work for their
students so they could get internships.)
We show up with some old F5s and a few flashes for the hardest spots and the
marketing bozo has said he already taken the photos....
....with his point and shoot.
We explain that, well, yes, it's nice of you to help preview what you want so we
don't have to rely on vague descriptions buy the image quality won't be there. No
dice, his photos will be great and there's no reason for us to do this.
So, we ended up doing their annual report with clip art because his jpegs were so
bad with everything tiny, incorrectly exposed and full of artifacts.
