COVERAGE

Nkechinyere Abani does not guarantee any specific picture nor to include any specific background, location, props, or arrangement, although every effort will be made to interpret the Client’s wishes. Nkechinyere Abani is limited by the guidelines of the ceremony officials or reception site management. The Client agrees to accept the technical results of their imposition on the photographer. Negotiation with the officials for moderation of guidelines is the Client’s responsibility. Nkechinyere Abani will offer technical recommendations only.

 

COLOUR MATCHING and SIZES

 

Owing to photochromatic anomalies caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials, especially in man-made fibres, it is sometimes impossible to record on camera the exact colour of materials as perceived by the human eye. When processing images, Nkechinyere Abani will endeavour to achieve a pleasing overall colour balance based on natural flesh tones. It is understood that some colours may not remain consistent throughout a set of photographs owing to variations in lighting conditions. It is also understood that all photographic printing is undertaken within the technical limitations of the process and that colour may not be identical over the whole range within a subject. The colour balance of prints made at different times or in varying sizes may also be variable. Due to the limitations of computer monitors it is understood that images may appear differently according to the specification of each monitor and that prints will not match images rendered on any particular computer monitor.
