So if it was to out a photographer, then why did you initially say that you had input on the lighting at all. Input isn’t execution no, but you yourself stated that you said how you wanted things to be done with colour, etc.
I just find this thread really bizzare and filled with a lot of backpedalling.
Also, it’s against modelmayhem rules to not credit the photographer. Seeing as he’s your only photographer, talking smack behind his bad might not be the best thing for you.
