I just received this email from a sort-of-friend (lived in the same dorm, were always friendly, she once lent me a movie, I forgot to return it for a while and thus paid her back with a poster of Johnny Depp (and the movie)): [Shacklebolt]: My mom wants me to get pictures taken of me in my cap and gown ASAP so that she can send it to family with graduation announcements. I was wondering if you would be free at some point Monday, or Tuesday morning, and would be willing to take pictures of me around campus in my cap and gown. Please let me know. Thank you. ______________ As much as I would love to do this for free, I feel like this is one instance where I just can't. Bringing $4-6000 worth of gear and committing however much time to doing this is just something that I feel that I can't do for free. Is this a circumstance of just sucking it up and doing this for a friend, or sucking it up and saying delicately that "I'd be more than happy to... but I just don't do this for free?" Or is it secret option number 3: "Gah, I would love to, but I'm just going to be too busy on those days."
