I would certainly agree. I have no idea what they are talking about... and I don't think they do either.

It sounds like they ran one into her purse to see how much cash she had.......

Sounds like snake oil sales to me.

Hum, the paper could be made of fiber and you view it optically so .... :twisted:
I still think someone got taken, should go and demand they explain exactly what they did.

My wife has a fiber optic snowman that changes color but I have never heard of a photo that was fiber optic. If it is fiber optic it will need a light source and electrical power.

Fiber optic treatment.... :roll: is that the kind of fiber optic lens that goes into a fire ant's nest, just like I saw on a Discovery Channel show? Seriously, what did the photographer do? Did he stick around during your gf's graduation day? And did he provide printed proofs for your gf to choose from for the enlargement? Wasn't the price arranged before hand? Was the picture any good after all?

Depending on your nature, you might or might not want to do this.

That person probably had an agreement with the school to take and sell the photos. The people in charge of that photographer might want to know what he is up to. Both in fairly high prices and his creative sales pitch.
