bigmama6 and NoLoveLossless…where do you find these people who break the laws of physics? By that I mean they both suck and blow at the same time.October 23, 2014 at 1:53 pm #22949

Wow, that matthew guy was why this site was created. That was some utter rubbish in there. His pricing is silly as well, why does a 3½x5 cost the same as a 8×10? He has pricing options for both 13×19 and 19×13 but at least they are the same.
The winner for me is the shot where he is showing off the studio and you can see the back of the DSLR (which looks like an entry-mid level sony) and there is a big red A which I can only assume is auto.
Matthew, if you are reading this, step away from that photoshop. If you can’t even paste an image on a background and keep aspect ratios the same something must be going really wrong.

I can think of two valid reasons:
— It’s the same sheet of paper and the same time to print; even if sending to a lab the effort is the same, though the lab may charge more for a larger print.
— To discourage smaller print sizes. Little prints get hidden away in a book, or a drawer. Big prints look better and are more apt to be framed.October 24, 2014 at 11:16 am #22958
This one has some work that might qualify for the main page:
Notice in his posts that he specializes in “creative effects” and that “THIS IS NOT A SCAM.”

HA!! RE: Marvin West – ” ..I am very creative and a Photoshop Artist…’ Artist???? I don’t think that word means what he apparently thinks it means. 😀
I’ve given up being angry about these wedding fauxtogs – obviously they are posting their work for people to see, people know exactly what they are getting from them, and yet people are STILL hiring them. They all deserve each other.October 25, 2014 at 10:45 am #22961

Marvin West has no idea how to operate a camera, let alone Photoshop. 30 years of experience????October 27, 2014 at 8:46 am #22975
Two of my favs from Marvin West’s “creative” works:
“Does my butt look big in this dress?”
“Feel free to add your own sacastic image caption here”

I can’t believe I’m doing this but anyone getting married in Florida should have uncle Bob or aunt Sally take their shots. They can’t be worse than Marv and he isn’t cheap! At least most fauxs price themselves accordingly but I suppose 33 years of “experience” warrants these (low for a real photog but expensive for a faux) prices. EGADS!
So, a couple of my favourites are
“Why, oh why, did I hire this guy to shoot the most important day of my life”?
“When a giant fountain, a house, trees and mom are far more important than the bride…”October 27, 2014 at 2:26 pm #22977
My favorite part of Marvin’s sample page of favorite weddings is that the only comment left for all of those photos is a referral post for this photographer: https://www.facebook.com/mariestillphotography 😀 I bet she gets plenty of business after folks look at HIS work. 😀October 30, 2014 at 2:41 pm #22996urkiddingrightParticipant
I am genuinely curious how this idiot gets so much business (prices aren’t cheap, weddings start at $1000).
Wtf is this!? Is it supposed to imitate comic book style art? I just don’t know
Awkward posing and terrible white balance. Or maybe it’s supposed to look like that???
Missed focus entirely. As in, nothing is in focus
The groom looks like he came down with a case of plague because his skin is turning purpleish
They’re ALL like that. Either the focus is off, the composition is weird, or there’s some crappy wanna-be artistic filter thrown on the photos. I really hope at least SOME of these people asked for their money back.November 1, 2014 at 11:14 am #23001
heh. Revisitng some of the first ever posted here today. fstopper, doesn’t look like Altered Reality has changed one bit since you first posted them! 😀
