      Really? I see you on here a lot making snarky comments tied to your business.. I believe you had the buttoir typo. But to make snarky comments about the model? As a boudoir photographer isn’t part of your job to make all women feel beautiful? Either way, you should really re-think what type of attitude you want tied to your business, was coming off like an asshole worth the spec of SEO benefit your rude comment gets you? Which btw YNAP is a no-follow blog, meaning, you got no benefit.

      Your an asshole. Who ties a rude comment about the subjects to their business? There are more things that make a faux a faux rather than just skill and professionalism is one of them. so looks like the only faux here is you.

    That’s it. I’m emailing Adobe and all the others. They HAVE to undo the capability to do spot color. Geeeesh!

    Only some qualify for color but, none qualify for focus.

    The women in the picture may not conform to your idea of beauty but to insult them only makes you look like a complete asshole.

    The picture, however, is in full need of insults.

    Hmm I’m not seeing any drag queens here – not nearly enough makeup and bling, nor telltale Adam’s apples, huge hands, big arms, or suspiciously fake-looking boobs. One or two look like thely could be transgenders though. Either way it’s an awful pic and as usual, bewildering choice of selective desat.

    What are they posing in front of? It looks like a hot water heater in the and a pile of chairs on the left. Mind your background! Focusing is good too.

    JUST STOP IT WITH THE SELECTIVE COLOR ALREADY!!! It’s so tacky…. and pointless. It never looks good and it almost never serves a purpose, except maybe as art.

    I will admit, I thought the process was cool when it first started popping up years ago… BUT STOP IT!!!!

    ok – the only thing in focus is the elbow of the lady on the far right (as we view the photo) – when will people learn everything is not shot at f2.8 / f3.5??

    And I’ve shot enough Hindu weddings to know you don’t make one of the most colorful things – the Saris – black and white – even without the spot color…. The colors are what make the wedding spectatular compared to a Christian ceremony…

    Bad, bad, bad….

    And what’s with the background? Was it taken in the storage area?

      Holy crap I think you’re right. I’m pretty sure that’s a stack of folded metal chairs behind the lady in blue.

    That urine-colored sheen on the wall behind the lady in pink really enhances this photo, too!

    Saris usually photograph beautifully because they’re so pretty and such vibrant colors – you’d really have to try hard to screw up a shot of a group of girls in saris. This fauxtog certainly managed to do that. Not only is the image not in focus, the background’s a mess and the post-editing should be illegal.

    Girl on the far right is saying “Seriously?? WHY DON’T I GET TO BE IN COLOR!!!???” But for real: why? Did the fauxtog have some kind of grudge against the three girls he grayed out?

    I’m guessing it’s something to do with the Caste system: the grey girls are clearly of lower social status than the colourised ones.
