I shoot RE photos and personally strive to do the best possible job regardless of the property. The way I look at it, whenever a home is listed with my work it is a public example of my skills. It does not matter if the property is a $6M waterfront mansion or a $20k half destroyed condo. If I accept the job, then I put all of my effort into it. If I believe the effort is not worth the pay, then I do not take the job in the first place.
Sorry to be blunt, but IMHO it is not right to do a fast job just because the pay isn't enough. This is an example of your work broadcast across the world.
I understand what you mean, this has always been my idea as well. It is absolutely the way I am with my wedding videography. But RE photos are more for my free time and the client asked me if I would be will to shoot the cheaper houses for less money so he can end up with better pictures then what he would take and so he wouldn't have to deal with shooting the shots on his t2i or deal with processing the photos or anything. I agreed, and this was the first cheap job. I am happy to provide him with better photos then he would have otherwise, and still get the money for my time accordingly. I respect your opinion, and everyone does things differently.
What I said to him
"let me know if these are too saturated for you. I went kinda crazy with them and could easily tone it tone a bit."
Direct quote from his response email
Beautiful! I like them. Thanks for getting them over so quick."
If it was any less than that at all then I would either re-shoot or re-edit, or do whatever it takes for him to like the photos.
