Here is one that popped up on my newsfeed.
There’s more so feel free to look through it.March 1, 2014 at 8:23 pm #17569FauxFightersParticipant
^Wow a fauxtog local to me! Looks like her website has been down a week, which has also killed her email. You can find her Shootproof page though:
Here is her personal page where she develops photos at Walgreens:
And from her photography page, it appears she is considering teaching photograhy!
“We are considering adding mini classes to our photography and design websites. What would you like to learn how to do? Take better close up photos? Replace the sky with a prettier one? Design a poster? Comment below or message us with ideas!”
Shockingly it hasn’t received any comments or likes.March 2, 2014 at 8:17 pm #17583norahknowsParticipant
it always astounds me when people pay money for over-edited, out of focus, crap.
le sigh.March 3, 2014 at 9:54 am #17597Worst Case ScenarioParticipantMarch 5, 2014 at 11:24 am #17639
wrote a book
She also came here asking for critique. you can see the thread in “Photography showcase” simplify labeled “critique”March 5, 2014 at 11:44 am #17641emfParticipant
I guess fauxism is more prevalent in writing too nowadays, what with it being relatively easy to self publish and sell it on amazon …. just, WOW!!!!March 5, 2014 at 11:55 am #17644
yes, and you critiqued her, and let her know she needed more work with her posing and lighting. This just rubs me wrong. Here you and I are just new bees. Amateurs that enjoy working hard to learn. and here she is trying to sell books, mislabeling her work as “photojournalistic wedding photography”. I don’t know, maybe I’m making a mountain out of a mole hill (I am in a mood), but it pisses me off. and it makes me laugh. I guess I’ll choose to laugh.March 5, 2014 at 12:25 pm #17650emfParticipant
I know!! And it’s teaching posing! What???? I’ve only just learnt the hard way about the importance of posing; after a disaster session with a friend – which I made a real dogs ear of! It was for the best though, as that was a lesson I really needed to learn.
It seems part of our culture now, that some people think they can have success without doing the schlep. It’s sad….but kinda funny too 🙂March 5, 2014 at 1:27 pm #17655cameraclickerParticipant
IHF, I am impressed by your research skills.March 5, 2014 at 1:34 pm #17656nesgranParticipant
This is all I have to say on the subjectMarch 5, 2014 at 3:23 pm #17659Worst Case ScenarioParticipant
She obviously doesn’t have very many
Creative Ideas in Photography:
as it’s only 36 pages long, and the 6 pages on preview are mostly blank space.March 5, 2014 at 5:06 pm #17666alexandraParticipant
At least she didn’t write a book on lighting and editing. Her posing may not be the best, but I think the lighting and editing in those photos is far worse…March 5, 2014 at 6:28 pm #17668
Anyone read the exert/intro? Just wondering if I’m the only one that went that farMarch 5, 2014 at 7:46 pm #17669cameraclickerParticipant
I did. The text is of similar quality to the photos. I really liked: “do not go searching on the internet for your poses.” Why not? There is some really good posing advice on the Internet. True, there is some really bad advice too, but apparently that can also be found in published books as well! It is the researcher’s job to separate the good from the bad and keep the good.
I also liked the way the blurb takes you from playing with flashlights if you have no access to a “beginner’s lighting kit”, to sample event contracts!
Since the pink page has the ISBN number, I imagine it is the last page. And, there is a photo of the author demonstrating a bad pose!March 5, 2014 at 9:45 pm #17675
lol it’s good stuff CC
She didn’t take that photo though, she just approved it for her posing book, so….. I really don’t see what the problem is 😉 BTW the photographer is listed in the dedication. Some entertaining stuff there as well, if you have some time on your hands
