I offer photography as a side hustle. When I take photos of products, I don’t send work in progress proofs to the client. I just pick the best ones, retouch, edit, clear cut and send the client the final images.
I recently shot a bunch of products. The client didn’t like the angle I shot them at so I had to re-do the lot.
It would have saved me a lot of work if I had proofed the unedited photos to the client first. However, I dislike how unedited photos look which is why I don’t often show them to clients unless asked.
On the other hand, clients might be impressed the difference between before and after.
I know many of you pay for product shots, as a client, would prefer to see unedited proofs just to check it’s on the right track?
