I am photographing a team of ten, and they’re already standing as close as possible. Their boss, the client, takes a look at the preview.
Client: “I don’t like that there is so much of their bodies visible, and so much background above their heads. I want the faces only.”
Me: “The camera takes pictures with a fixed side ratio. I already filled the width of the frame with the team, there is no way to remove height now. But don’t worry, later we can cut the parts you don’t want to have on the picture.”
Client: “But why can’t you zoom in so we see the faces and not the bodies and background?”
Me: “…Because then the people on the left and right won’t be on the picture anymore.”
Client: “Your camera is stupid.”
