@dontcare, I think your image of the guy is nice. You’ve captured his pensive expression well. Monotone works well for it too.February 21, 2013 at 4:54 pm #6988
While I said some of Exit 10’s work was ok, this is something I would NOT offer!
There are other ways to do “trash the dress” photos than in a river that’s 4 feet deep. I saw a video online last year about a photographer doing a trash the dress and a sharp undercurrent ripped the newlywed away and the weight of her dress made it impossible to swim afloat and she DROWNED. Granted, they showed the river and rocks where they were doing the session and that river looked more vicious. But why take the chance? I’ve shot photos with my photographer friend in a creek that was no more than 6 inches deep and you could see clearly to the sandy bottom.
This one by Southern Belle looks dangerous as well. The location is cool, and this maybe would not be at all dangerous at a time of low tide, but I would not want to be responsible for her falling and being carried out in the ocean during this.February 21, 2013 at 4:58 pm #6990February 21, 2013 at 5:03 pm #6991February 21, 2013 at 5:14 pm #6992February 21, 2013 at 5:25 pm #6994cass335Member
Wow, I can’t believe she got such a clear ghost picture! She must be a paranormal investigator too!February 21, 2013 at 6:48 pm #7012cmra_grl11MemberFebruary 21, 2013 at 7:00 pm #7016cmra_grl11Member

See Through Photography has some cute ideas and poses, but a lot of poor execution. And way over-use of actions. Almost all of her finished photos are of the hazy, low-saturation, high-key edits. While those may work for some of the images, she’s totally stuck in doing it for every one.
I like this pose, and the expression on the girl’s face. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=339480156148183&set=pb.104339276328940.-2207520000.1361491518&type=3&theater
Totally overexposed, but the pose is nice. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=347252762037589&set=pb.104339276328940.-2207520000.1361491518&type=3&theater
LOVE this, but it’s over-edited, and I would have gotten rid of the power lines in the background. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=388209741275224&set=pb.104339276328940.-2207520000.1361491478&type=3&theater
She’s got some out-of-focus work but it’s not the majority. I think she’d benefit a lot from taking a step back in editing, and work on producing some clean edits, and then maybe a few with the hazy tones etc. I wouldn’t call her a fauxtog though! She’s on the right track, just needs some constructive criticism. She seems to run her business professionally also.February 21, 2013 at 7:12 pm #7018kbeeMember
beg89, I saw the same report about the bride who drowned. Very sad. Then again, I don’t understand the appeal of ruining any dress anyway so the whole thing boggles me. For sure, I wouldn’t dream of wrecking my $2200 dress and photographing it for ‘posterity’.
cmra_grl11, I call that the Instagram effect. Enough said.February 21, 2013 at 7:59 pm #7021February 21, 2013 at 8:27 pm #7022February 21, 2013 at 9:10 pm #7023JanJanMember
Make sure you’re logged on Facebook to view these atrocious pictures.
This guy claims he’s a fashion photographer, turned radio DJ. He was going to teach me some photography techniques and got me access into Las Vegas fashion week in exchange for working on his website (I’m a full-time web designer). He bragged that he could “teach me techniques that doesn’t require Photoshop”. I was naive and new back then.
This is supposed to be “artistic”. It looks nasty:
Just his entire album is awful. I’m glad I didn’t take any advice from him.February 21, 2013 at 9:10 pm #7024
@dont.care, I did that “for fun” editing with my friend’s engagement pictures. She actually wanted me to DO them in the first place, but her fiance, on a night of intoxication, promised his friend that he could shoot them, without really consulting her first! And they did not turn out very well at all. Supposedly, this friend and his girlfriend are both photographers so they shot the photos together. They worked for LifeTouch studios for 6 years. After I saw the photos I had to bite my tongue. I would have done a much better job! She brought her disk to my house and I loaded them in my Lightroom library and played around with them. My friend was not happy with some of the photos and I told her some technical things I would have done differently. I offered to re-shoot for them, but with her fiance’s and her conflicting work schedules (he’s a cop who works third shift, and she works first shift) it just never happened. I did re-edit a handful for my own benefit. I showed her a couple of the re-edits, but told her I could not give them to her because of copyright violation. I should post some to a private gallery and post the password here so you all can see the before/afters.
