Long time no post but here’s one fairly local to me. Music on the home page and a bunch of awful galleries. The entire website is so bad it’s barely worth making it in the first place.February 2, 2014 at 2:22 pm #16348Worst Case ScenarioParticipant
Wow those are pretty dreadful, love the pic in the effects gallery where he seems to have photoshopped a woman onto a stool in a field? And in the wedding? section there seems to be a pair of hands holding a shaved guinea pig wearing a wig????????February 4, 2014 at 7:28 am #16350FauxFightersParticipant
A new fauxtographer has emerged from the depths of Facebook and littered my feed with her horrible work behind the camera “photographing” an acquaintance or two. Welcome to Edge Photography!
Edge Photography is a typical setup. Young MWAC (three kids by three different guys) who looks like she went to nursing school, worked at a bank, and then became an owner-operator of a photography business. Even though she lists working as a photographer since 2011, her FB page didn’t pop up until February 2013. Here is a picture of this particular faux getting down to business:
She is guilty of all the typical MWAC issues. “Natural light” only, on location only photography. If you need light, get ready for the power of pop-up. She can guarantee blurry shots, out of focus photos, off axis shots for no reason, and no color balance whatsoever. But at a great price. Here is one of her latest promotions:
“ATTENTION: The rest of this month is Customer Appreciation Month…book a session this month for 60$. That includes a session with NO time limit, NO outfit limit, NO pose limit and this also includes a CD of ALL edited images with permission to print. Yes you heard correctly, the session is UNLIMITED. We LOVE LOVE LOVE our clients!!”
I guess with that no time limit you could make her stay and shoot all day. It’ll still mostly be crap though. If you loved your clients, you might take a couple classes. Here is what clients have to look forward to.
Not being in focus, and barely in the picture:
I love how this shot draws the eye away from the subject and onto the wheat in the foreground:
Looks like she beat the model:
One of my favorites and probably front-page worthy. Take a very large and pregnant subject, making her beer gut sporting baby daddy poke out his stomach behind her while sitting in the middle of the road, and then to make it “artistic” let’s take 90% of the color out of the picture. WINNAR!
Glad she threw her watermark all over this kid, because I know people were planning to steal this flat and blurry shot of this kid having a blast at the fire station:
Here is a cute little girl with almost all of the color sucked out of the shot, probably because 75% of the background is totally blown out:
And here is another girl with horrible color issues. This time she’s green!
This shot is unnecessarily crooked, blurry and the posing is horrible for these two little girls:
While buying new photography gear might be one way to spend your hard earned money, another way is to go hit up the Goodwill for ancient furniture to use as props. OMG how original and so much better than to buy a sharp lens or maybe a real flash:
Kelly also does nature shots:
Here she is advocating for supporting small businesses:
I’m sure she has her business license and is paying all applicable taxes.
And her last post is asking about doing a wedding. I could hardly wait to book her! With her terribly hit and miss on a situation that she totally controls and promises unlimited time to get the right shot, I can’t believe that she hasn’t already shots tens of weddings at reasonable prices. Ugh. Can’t wait to see that train wreck posted online!February 4, 2014 at 1:07 pm #16351joehomeownerParticipant
Her kids and how many men she has had them with are irrelevant and you are a slut-shaming shitbag for mentioning any of it. In fact, it puts you at a level that is no more professional than her. Your work could be better, but you still have a highly unprofessional attitude.February 4, 2014 at 1:26 pm #16352sethParticipant
Some of her stuff looks like it could be pretty good if she would just watch her splotchy lighting and edit better, too.February 5, 2014 at 4:32 pm #16359nesgranParticipant
Really?? It is a disaster bordering dangerously close to clusterfuck. She ticks every single faux box out there including risking the life of a high school kid on active train tracks.February 6, 2014 at 7:35 am #16370FauxFightersParticipant
I personally don’t give a shit how many kids she has and with whom, as long as they are taking care of them and not on the taxpayer dime. My point was that I have several friends who became MWAC’s after having a couple kids and especially after becoming a stay-at-home mom or being married to a soldier and relocating somewhere they could not find work. They were fucking horrible, but people told them they should do it because they shot pictures of their own kids in the yard and posted them online, so they were “photographers”. I was also commenting on her background that led to her becoming a fauxtog and my perception that she has a problem with staying focused professionally/personally. She was in nursing school, then went to a bank, and now has been a fauxtog for 3 years but only had a “website” one year and has already had at least two business names. None of that and certainly not her work screams “professional” or that she is dedicated to learning about photography. To me it screams “I am bored and want something to do; I have a Rebel; being a photographer can’t be that hard.” Disagree with me if you want on my assessment, but her fauxtography speaks for itself.February 7, 2014 at 2:27 pm #16398AnonymooseParticipant
I’m assuming this is the same fauxtographer sb87 was referring to (The Facebook link appears to be broken).
Check out the masterpiece on the homepage:
And the one in the about section:
I like the clipart look to these, especially the shot of the thumb with a baby behind it:February 7, 2014 at 6:35 pm #16399Street ShooterParticipant
I saw this guy at a wedding, BEHIND THE BRIDE AND GROOM. Pop up flash blazing, now it seems he has gone in another direction…..BOUDOIR.
Not just any Boudoir….Classy and Sassy. Which must be his codes for “Selective Coloring and 100% Saturation”:
Let’s not forget on camera flash, plastic skin, and alien eyes!!!
Want -100 clarity? He’s your guy!
