Seven Reasons The Photographer Didn’t Upload Your Photo

The photographer asked to photograph you for a website.  You agreed.  Afterwards, the photographer handed you a card showing the website’s Internet address.

Sometime during the week, you visited the website.  You saw the event you attended.  Yet, you didn’t see yourself.  What happened, you ask?   I shall give seven possible explanations.

1. The photographer may not be in charge of the website.  The person in charge of the website owns final say on what gets uploaded and what doesn’t.  This person’s reasons range from the smart to the downright ridiculous.

2. You pissed off the photographer. This rarely happens.  Yet, some folks behavior annoys others so damned bad, the photographer just might be spiteful enough to delete your photo from his or her camera.  Or see to it that the photo never gets uploaded.

3. Someone photo-bombed your photo.  Many times this happens.  After taking your photo, the photographer realizes too late someone was making funny faces behind you in the background, or some other nonsense.

One time, in a nightclub photo, I noticed too late a dude’s hand reaching out in front of a young lady’s private part.

4. The photo doesn’t fit the website’s guidelines.  That obscene gesture you thought was cool to flash in the photo?  Some websites don’t allow that.

Some guidelines are outright stupid, tho.  I’ve read about websites not wanting to include people because of looks. They prefer spotlighting the beautiful people. This usually includes no “big women”. Also, some websites are racist. To please bigots, a website may limit the photos of certain racial groups.  Or they just might not upload photos containing these groups at all.

5. The photographer was looking out for your best interest.  In the pic, your eyes might have been closed. Your pants zipper may have been down.  Your toupee may have been falling off. A white powdery substance might be showing under your nose.  Looking out for your best interest, the photographer sees to it that the photos are never uploaded.

6. Someone you posed with asked for the photo to be removed.  The photo may have already been uploaded.  Yet, someone you posed with may start worrying the photo could ruin their career. Or they find the photo unflattering. So, they asked the website to take it down.  Usually, this happens to me on Facebook, especially after the person has been tagged.  Yet, I can imagine this happening with websites.

7. The photo was crap. Usually, this is the main reason a photo don’t get uploaded.  The pic may have appeared too fuzzy and out of focus.  Also, some photos are overexposed and have some people appearing extremely white, so white a person can barely see details in the face.

Things like this are why some photographers take more than one pic.  Yet, sometimes, even that don’t do the job.  The second and third photo may come out looking like crap also.

 

So, these are the main possible reasons your photo didn’t get uploaded.  Out of all seven, the more likeliest reason is the photo being crap.
