Office holiday party tomorrow night - employees (& contractors - 50/50 split) only, no SO’s. They’ve hired a photo booth & photographer as entertainment, but then there was a request from corporate to have photos of the event as well. That’s where the request to me came in; I’m a photographer so I was asked to get some pics.
The only indoor photography I do is some occasional Urbex (low light, inanimate objects, tripod, long exposure) & the only people I shoot are sports/race photos. (This is one I took at a race a few weeks ago. His face isn’t blurry, it’s showing motion/speed. The focus is on the wall of water that his foot is creating by running thru the puddle. It captured what I was going for; therefore it’s a ‘good’ photo.) IOW, I don’t normally do portraits.
It’s nothing for me to go out & shoot 100+ pics, & that’s just when I’m shooting for me. I just feel like I’m going to be working the whole event & not enjoying the party. No, I’m not getting paid for it, either. Any way I can gracefully decline to shoot it?
