Wardrobe malfunction

I recently had a very successful shoot with a model from this site, it was an outdoor location and we experimented with a few "mutual" ideas, the "level" as we like to call it was lingerie, the model brought her own outfits and dressed herself.

I processed the images and sent a few over to the young lady, she came back asking that i discard the image as it suggested she had nipples! I am quite happy to do this!

My question for discussion here is, what is the protocol or legalities if a photographer had paid (or otherwise), release signed, and then on processing found a wardrobe malfunction that exposed parts of the model that exeeded the "type" of shoot.

I had a shoot where a model had a no nipple showing agreement with me, she was wearing a dress that would normally require a lot of titty tape however she wasn't so I had to shout nipple alert now and then but a few did escape my notice until processing. Simples, I had a look to see if they was unusual in anyway then deleted them.
If your a nice guy you delete them as agreed, if your not then you ignore her. As for legalities I am sure there is a expert on here however from my simple lay view if you have breached a written agreement she has a claim against you!

And I'll add... If you want to work with her again, delete them as agreed. If not...

Fantastic use of "quotes"

Dare I mention "Photoshop"?

If it's a shot you are really keen on it is generally not too difficult to move a garment a little to cover the offending item, rather than discard the photo. Keeps both parties happy.

As mentioned above. Photoshop, learn to use it.

it happens all the time, what is the point of agreeing to levels if you're not going to honour them? If you want to shoot nudes, use a nude model.

If you cant retouch them out then discard the picture, you have more to choose from.

I expect it's just me, if I was browsing the shoot I had done, it wouldn't enter my mind to photoshop a nipple escape; I would just discard as it did not meet the agreed brief. my fault for not noticing. I feel I'm semi confident in my use of photoshop and happily be able to cover the offending nipple just that I wouldn't think about it.
