Look Out Kid

run over

Why anyone would want a picture in which it appears their child is about to be hit by a car is beyond me. At least the fauxtog didn’t do a good job of it!

    You notice how many “Faux” examples come from “ethnic’ “shoots”? Dont ONLY or ALWAYS blame the fauxtog, the “subjects” are seeking this, demanding these silly, “ethnic” driven settings, backgrounds and poses.

    If Ethnic includes hillbillies -then i guess we cant be blaming the Fauxtogs in these cases too… because there are soo many … so so many.

    If a client comes in, asks you for something tasteless, absurd, does not fit in with your style and will generally look terrible, you have the right to refer them to another photographer. The photographer took the photo and displayed it as their own professional work, therefore you do get to blame the “faux”. If someone came to me and asked me to shoot this, I would say no and refer them to a “faux” in my area who doesn’t mind diminishing their reputation to make $20.

    Well, there’s no question that it is “ethnic” because this image is from a “pro” studio portfolio in South East Asia. Fauxtogs are everywhere!

    I wasn’t aware that white folk are genetically immune to bad taste

    Matt,

    That is good advice, except I wouldn’t refer them to anyone. Let them seek out their own crappy photographer!
