      hooker glamor shots?

    2. Is that a tree or a light pole?!

    3. Richard

      Are you sure that’s a tree…looks like a light pole…I wonder if the photog added texture to it??? Hmmm…

      • There is no tree with bark like that…but a fauxtog wouldn’t be able to add a texture like that lol…thus a lightpole XD

    4. Aerobics in the park? I’m guessing it’s sweat on the lens making the image blurry?

    5. I guess there’s no armpit hair remover tool on picnik?

    6. Gosh, can they Watch the f’n background!!!!

    7. Good thing that put that watermark. This is something I want to steal!

    8. Good thing they put that watermark, I want to steal this.

    9. I know I’ll hear it for this, but did she shave?

    10. NicCole

      That’s a light pole, not a tree. Which makes it look worse. The pose is awful, even for that particular pose. And what did he do to her hand??

    11. “Yeah, we’ll just do it in front of the apartment, I’ve got this cool blur vignette (pronounced vig-netty) filter that will make it look cool and just like a professional!”

    12. Good lord. If you are going to take pro pictures, PLEASE have the glass to be able to do so and the knowledge on how to do so. They needed a very shallow depth of field and then the subject would have been in proper focus and the foreground/background would have been soft without the harsh post processing.

    13. My first thought was that it is her official craigslist “escort” photo.

    14. BurninBiomass

      Shes a (light) pole dance!

      It’s like the lower half of her body is separated from the upper half by the watermark.

      Sidebar: I’m so glad I learned about the evils of blue eye shadow in the 80s.

    16. I love how the black dress makes it look like it says “ho”tography. How very fitting.

    17. The cars in the back really add a lot of romance to this shot.

    18. Whats with the butt glow? Radioactive Farts?

    19. FalconGTHO

      Wurd up, yo.

    20. Is the section through her middle smeared in photoshop, or what is that?

    21. LIPhotoguy

      Perhaps you did not see the bridge photo below?

    22. Miss Obnoxious

      Is that hair, or a tattoo under her armpit??!

    23. Cranky Catholic

      Actually there’s nothing terribly wrong with this photo. It’s a vacation photo from the Secret Service.

    24. vignetting and selective Gaussian blur in PS can’t save a bad background… and when you don’t keep the subject in focus – it just looks worse.

      Then you add in the unflattering pose – unless this is a sample for the ad I saw on CL the other day (Escort photographer – Perfect for backpages (Seriously – that was in Craigslist)). There is no way this should be shown to anyone.

      I like the subtle racism in this thread… there’s tons of terrible shots of white women trying to look sexy and I don’t think any of them have been accused of prostitution or been called a ho…or “wurd up yo”

      • LIPhotoguy

        There should be a new site opening up called:

        Youarenotaproctologist.com – Because no matter how far you stuff your head up your a$$, you’ll never be one.

        The very notion that that is racist is so far off base and retarded I would think Rain Man would laugh at you – MORON.

        • roger

          Here’s an idea, LIPhotoguy, fuck you. How’s that, you fucking dipshit. I’m not calling you a racist or saying the photo is racist. A photo of a black woman shows up on the site and there’s a shit ton of “ho” comments. If you don’t see the inherent racism in that, then you are a fucking idiot. So far off base? I don’t think so.
          Nice Rain Man reference, though, grandma.

        • LIPhotoguy

          To think, I would have expected a little more grown up of a reply. Just shows those who like to cry foul can’t put on their big boy pants and talk like an adult.

          I don’t see anything racist in the word ho, compound that with the fact that a ho, in not a singular term to define a black woman. Perhaps her brothers may refer to her as such, but the same sexist jerks would call any woman a ho.

          Perhaps thinking like a grown adult makes me an idiot… doubtful – but always possible I guess.

          Grow up and learn what a ho really is, I did. Last time I looked it had nothing to do with any particular race. Ho is a lazy tongue trying to use the term WHORE, go look it up.

          I’ll do the main work for you – just click the link:

          Where does it define anything at all that is racist? Oh, no-where…

        We don’t know (or care) what ethnicity the photographer is. That’s who is responsible for the posing. I highly doubt the subject said, “Maybe I should put my arms up like this.” It’s just not something a subject would naturally do. Try to lighten up. EVERYONE gets picked on on this site. I agree, that in general comments about the subjects are uncalled for. In this case we’re dissing on the pose.

        They got the ho-tography because the P is hidden. It had nothing to do with race. That’s like saying if I hate rainbows, I must be insulting gay people. No one mentioned any racism until you said something so you might want to take a look at who is the racist here. Against white people much. Oh and btw, I am not white. I am Native American but no one gives a shit about us.

    26. Ah yes, excessive blurring that bleeds on to your model ALWAYS compensates for terrible backgrounds. Why do people do this to models? I wish models were more aware of these things. There needs to be a guide “How to know the photographer you’re working with is a total putz.”
