Haruyou: Photographers never give you all of the photos they take. They choose and edit the best ones to give back to you. If someone had their eyes closed in the pics with your grandparents, for example, they probably wouldn’t give you that picture. Now if you saw them in the slideshow then you could ask for that specific picture. 

No, pictures aren’t supposed to be grainy. They should be very high quality to be printed. I’m guessing that’s a result of going with a less experienced photographer.

Haruyou:  Did you contact them about the missing pictures yet? How many pictures did you actually receive on the USB?

If they gave you a print release your pictures SHOULD be print quality. For example, our pics from the photographer are 5-7 MBs each with dimensions of about 2800 x 4200. It’s a HUGE file. I would expect you to be given similar sizes.

Haruyou:  having the ISO set up incorrectly will result in grainy photos. Any experienced photographer will know how to set the ISO, Aperture and shutter speed to get the best out of the lighting available.

Are the images shes given you the final images. sometimes they give you images to look through which arent high quality just to make sure you are happy with the images captured and then send you the high res images afterwards?

If these are the final images there may be something you can do to reduce the noice in the pictures using photo editing software such as noiseware which is free to download.

Haruyou:  are you able to upload one so I have a look? Although the files may be too large to upload to here.

I wonder if she was shooting RAW. There is a loit more she can do with regards to editing if she was shooting RAW.

Have you tried to print one out yet? I would, just to see the quality. Couple shots via walmart or walgreens could help.

Yea I’m a photographer and a wrong ISO means grainy photos. As far as missing photos, like a PP said, photographers only give the best photos, but if they’re in the slideshow I’m sure she deemed them good enough and she should be able to provide. Is the grain really bad? Soemtimes it’s subtle and still looks good as long as it’s not being blown up and printed.

I’m surprised about the ISO problem from a professional. I’ve taken classes and am an amateur but even when I take pics, within the span of an hour I may change the ISO quite a bit to get the shot I need (it is SO easy on digitals these days).  The graininess is to be expected from low-light situations, but there’s really no excuse outdoors unless they made a mistake or were specifically going for that look.  They should have been able to address some of this in editing.  That said… they may print better than they appear on your monitor.

Haruyou:  For a backlit photo at that magnification, the grain seems relatively normal to me. (professional photog here). You’re always going to have grain, it is just a matter of how much and how much you can tolerate.
