Today’s post is really more of a question, or poll. I know it’s holiday crunch time, but if you can spare a minute, I’d love to hear what you have to say. A few years ago, I gave one of my friends a photograph for Ghristmas. As he was unwrapping it, another friend piped up “You’d better not be giving him a photograph. A photo isn’t a gift, it’s your job!” Though the friend receiving the gift was very gracious, I was still pretty offended.
So what I want to know is this: What are your thoughts on giving your own work as a gift; is it an ok thing to do? Or, how do you feel when you receive something like a photograph from a photographer, or a painting from a painter?
