Saw this on a friend's Facebook wall this morning...

"Ok have I got a deal for you! I'm wanting to practice my photography and I'm sure you are wanting pictures of your little ones, family or yourself! For $10 I will shoot an outdoor photography setting and edit your photos and post them on Facebook for you to print. The first 5 people that message me on Facebook (privately) will get to do this! Let me know! Smile"

Eh, I don't think it's a NEW low. It's been that low for a while. No skin off my back though. Those aren't the clients I want and you usually get what you pay for.

$10 is about what you charge when your work should be free but you're hoping to get lucky and people won't notice.

Was your assessment of her skills before or after your class?

Doesn't matter; you can't teach talent, only technique.
