Y'all...these photos are special. I don't usually write long posts but I had to share this! As most of you already know, my brother graduated from UAB recently. I was excited and proud for him but of course I was excited for another opportunity to take some pictures. I took a bunch and got some great shots but as the amateur I am, I failed to bring my tripod to take a group photo. Around the time I realized we needed a group photo (duh) a photographer with GradImages approached us and offered to take some for us. His camera was nicer than mine and I assumed he knew how to operate it...but...I was wrong. As you can see, these photos are heavily edited.
A few days after the graduation, we tried to go on the GradImages site with the information provided to view the photos but only the proofs of my brother alone were there. So, after having to search pretty hard for someone to contact (odd) regarding this issue, I emailed someone and inquired. They wrote back and politely told me that they deleted the photos because they were overexposed and below quality. So. I freaked out of course. My first thought was, are these people actual professionals? My DSLR camera did just fine, I took 200 photos that day and none were overexposed or messed up.
I went a little overboard and I admit I emailed the school..left every bad review imaginable, emailed everyone imaginable...but hey, somehow they found and sent our pictures. Overexposed or not, I don't care! I love them. I fought hard for these pictures y'all! ❤️ #family #uabclassof2019 #uab #graduation
