    The two first baby photos at least have proper white balance… but what is with using a folded-and-unfolded piece of pink tissue paper as a backdrop, for crying out loud? The third baby one looks like she ran an action on it but softened the face way too much to the point it looks like a doll. Those couple photos look like they were shot with a point-and-shoot, with the weird wide angle distortion it appears to have and the fact that everything is on the same focal plane.

    Fauxtogs make money because they are so cheap and they get clients that are bargain-hunters and don’t even care about quality.

    I have to disagree with the third image…it’s stinkin’ cute.  🙂  (the rest are crap though…agreed.)

    you’re cute, amber. but if you read on my page it says it’s a hobby & i don’t charge, most of these photos are my friends, but you really shouldn’t be so worried ab me, worry ab yourself 🙂

    This is a pretty hypocritical statement here!! I’ve seen plenty photo’s from this PHOTOGRAPHER and not oncehave I found ANY flaws!!! Keep taking gorgeous photos! You know you’re doing a great job to have haters when someone feels the need to put your stuff on blast!

    maybe you should put your own stuff on here also and see what people have to say. and why are you even worried ab me or on my page that clearly reads HOBBY. You don’t know what I do, and clearly didn’t even know that I don’t charge, you’re not the queen of photography like you seem to think you are, people can have hobbies, it’s okay, calm down and do your own thing. stay in nashville, and quit worrying ab what’s going on down here where you aren’t. you don’t have to look at my page. it would be awesome if you would delete this.

    this is her page, btw. since she wants to throw me all out there.. so immature. maybe people will not want to work with you because you do things like this to people who have done NOTHING to you.

    I’m doing what this site is designed for. I’m not doing anything that this site doesn’t condone. If you don’t like it get the hell of the site. And I was going to delete it to be nice but there is no way for me to do it. If there is I haven’t found it yet.

    lol alright, someone random sent me a message and told me ab this. that’s wonderful you take time out of your day to do things like this. i hope you feel awesome and amazing putting down something someone else does as a hobby. have fun with that. i thought we were past this bs, but apparently you can’t seem to get over whatever it is that’s bothering you. please continue being holier than thou. i hope someday you can get past the high school stuff.

    This comment is for Amber too.  I personally think instead of talking about how bad you thought the pics were,  why don’t you try being polite & give  her some advice  if you’re such a good photographer?  And just so you know,  my granddaughter is NOT a goddamn baby like you said she is!!!!  She is a beautiful gift from God!!!

    @pencil, your work isn’t the best out there either. Some of it is pretty good, don’t get me wrong, but lots of white balance issues and composition/background issues, and some images within the same shoot are very inconsistent. Not saying you can’t get better, but calling someone who does it as a hobby a fauxtographer when your own stuff isn’t much better is kind of childish. No, I didn’t like some of the hobbyist’s work, but technically if she isn’t charging she is not a fauxtographer. Maybe she’s in the process of learning so that she may get to that point.

    I will not lie, at first I was like yeah I am gonna charge and do this, but then I stepped back and realized that I do not need to because I need lots of work and I have no idea how to run a business and truly don’t even want to try, I have always enjoyed taking photos since I was very young and it’s just something I do for fun. This girl always seems to target me, and it’s getting annoying.

    Erin, when it comes to ANY form of Art Im the first to point out all flaws even the one’s people over look time & time again. Your photo are amazing, not ONE PHOTOGRAPHER will have the same form of picture taking. Regardless of your school title your photos are amazing! Pitting people on blast is just down right immaturity!

    I’m not one to criticize anyone, and that’s not my style.. I do what I like, and if other people don’t like it, they have the option not to look. And that’s my view on it. But thanks girls, it means a lot that people stand up for what I like to do.
