As a photographer, the moment I saw the photos of Kim Kardashian’s outfit at the Met Gala this year I thought of some poor photo editor being ordered to recover the shadows in the picture.

I also think of every time my off camera flash hasn’t fired at a shoot.

Then there are all of the times I have heard ‘natural light’ photographers complain about dark shooting conditions….

Or back in my graphic design days when a client would send a horribly underexposed photo and say, “You can just fix it in Photoshop, right?”

Nope, that’s not how this works…

Did this outfit make you of anything in particular as a photographer? Let me know on Instagram!
