    When did reverse spot color become the newest “client” request? This is horrible, ugh.

    Why? Because it is around noon, the baby has no sun protection, but already a sunburn.

    “Don’t blink. Don’t even blink. Blink and you’re dead. They are fast, faster than you can believe. Don’t turn your back. Don’t look away and don’t blink. Good luck.”

    I feel like this is appropriate here.

      LOL I was going to say that!! Don’t Blink!

      Between the obvious coloring issue and the construction project in the background…ewwww!

        Horrible photo and composition yes..but that’s not a construction project. That’s Fort Pulaski in Savannah, GA. Now personally I love photographing old forts, but for baby portraits, there are a million and one prettier places in and around Savannah for that sort of thing.

      The only reason I clicked on the comments was so that I could say that exact and entire line. Well done for beating me to the punch. Hahaha!

    I think Mom & Dad may want to schedule a pediatric visit sometime in the near future. Little Joany is looking a bit ashy.

    Was this photo taken on the grounds of a jail?

      Yeah, because most jails have canons sitting on the bastions

    Spot colour should be banned.

    My first ever wedding i turned a picture Black and White and then painted in ever individual piece of falling confetti in colour. I sort of liked it. the client loved it, and any referal i get from that shoot, they always ask for it! So maybe it is us that are wrong…

    Besides the obvious craptasticness of this photo, the fact that the photographer took the time to take away all the color from the baby but not remove the dust particles from the sky I find quite annoying.

    Is it just me, or does it seem like the fauxtographer also used flash to illuminate the grass that was within the closest proximity to the camera?

      Well spotted. Maybe so. You think they could have used that flash to fill in the baby so she’s not smashed by the sun from the back so much.

      How about calling the client an asshole for paying for it? But not for the people who think this crap is fabulous, there would be no fauxtographers.

      So wait…. people legitimately, for real PAY for these? Real money?? Knowingly?!? And like…. they saw the photographer’s work before hiring them? I’m scared for the world…

  20. […] leaving a baby black-and-white but letting his/her eyes or lips be in color (or even worse: the background!) leaves one with the feeling that the baby is no longer alive. Please don’t let your […]
