A new day means a new fauxtog! She specializes in selective coloring, railroad track shots, and every other cliche that a fauxtog brings to the table. Today I present B.Pair Photography:
Starting off with the profile photo and Timeline photo and we have a couple of gems!
Completely blown out and not very sharp either.
Super dark with blown out spots on her.
Honestly this session wasn’t horrible, but was not great either. Usually in focus, but lighting is obviously something she is working on. This last shot though, who would think that I want to focus on that Christmas decoration instead of the three blurry children behind them??
Same couple as in the profile picture that were super blown out. And while this isn’t a bad place to shoot, pick a better time to shoot. Or at least get a reflector to kill all that light on half her face. Wow.
This one is pretty bad for a couple of reasons. The way she is shooting the flash makes the grooms ears throw bad shadows on the back, which makes them look even bigger. Additionally if she wanted the groom to have his arms around the ladies, she probably should have had him unbutton his jacket, as it looks like that button is about to die. Not his fault, but she didn’t pay attention when posing him.
This wedding set is pretty bad. This shot is too dark, her dress is about the only thing you can see, and its shot over their head, but nothing is being framed above them but darkness.
This whole set is quite bad as well. No fill flash or anything, so the Alayna appears to just blend into the background.
I love how she is so far away from the ring that its barely visible, and its obscured by grass. And its out of focus.
And whose idea was white shirts on a larger couple? You don’t want to accentuate their size. They can’t help that part, but the faux is doing no favors by posing them in awkward positions and bright shirts that do not slim them down at all, especially the bride.
Unfocused means push delete, not post on FB.
I like how the focus is on the brick wall between the photographer and the subjects hands.
Metering for outside the window? Either give it some fill flash to balance the light with outside, or expose properly for the room and have a bright light coming in from outside, or do the silhouette thing. Not sure what is going on here.February 28, 2013 at 2:29 pm #7411
Cute pose, composition is a little off, but it would have looked great with a little fill light on the faces. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=355117767891955&set=a.355117681225297.76469.335021216568277&type=3&theater
Would have been a nice formal portrait if it were in focus. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=355103561226709&set=a.335048459898886.72911.335021216568277&type=1&theater
A lot of fauxtogs post many images with terrible bright spots on faces. If they would only have moved to a shaded spot, they could have avoided that! That really spotty light looks terrible.February 28, 2013 at 6:44 pm #7414chia_pet9731Participant
He is really really good looking ! You’re right. . . too bad he’s not in focus.March 1, 2013 at 1:29 pm #7439anniecbParticipant
Here is a fauxtog I just saw. Some of hers are good, but then she has some that are, well, less than good. LOL
This is just blurry and out of focus. I’m not a photographer and I would have just deleted this one if I had been taking pictures of my child.
This is just dangerous. Why would any parent agree to let their child do that?! One wrong movement and that little girl would fall and hit her head on concrete.March 1, 2013 at 3:04 pm #7440SinnocentParticipant
You guys will have a field day with this fauxtog:
She states, to me, that she went to school for photography and she doesn’t use a free editing software. Oh and that her work is BEAUTIFUL photography and she knows it.March 1, 2013 at 3:09 pm #7441sethParticipantMarch 1, 2013 at 4:16 pm #7442
Why would you put clip-art on a photo?
I need an explanation for this set…March 1, 2013 at 7:41 pm #7452MsLouLou_25Participant
Here is one for you

I’m so freaking amused by that guns over baby picture. Seriously it makes my day. Yes, it’s horrible, but it’s just so damn absurd I can’t help but think : Woman and man hiding out during the Zombie Apocalypse, woman gives birth, shortly after, a horde of Zombies comes charging (or shambling depending on your favorite zombie) at them! The parents draw weapons prepared to defend their child to the death!! /endsceneMarch 1, 2013 at 10:27 pm #7458cameraclickerParticipant
Well, Fontana, CA, just purchased a bunch of assault rifles — which they store in an office at night and in cruiser trunks during the day — to protect their school children. It was on the news a few minutes ago. Obviously that couple is just being proactive.March 1, 2013 at 10:56 pm #7460dont.careParticipantMarch 1, 2013 at 11:53 pm #7461youaintallthatParticipantMarch 2, 2013 at 12:11 am #7462
The issue isn’t really about the guns in that photo, it’s the odd placement and movement of the elements in the photo. The baby is lying there peacefully, while the parents look ready to ambush someone. Just doesn’t fit!
Side note- I do plan on getting my concealed carry permit and buying a small revolver pistol. For me being a young woman, it might be smart to have it with me at times. As a photographer, there are times I go on-location and meet with people that I don’t know prior, and I would feel extra safe if I had protection. Heaven forbid people have ill intentions, but several years ago in WI, actually in the county northeast of mine, a young woman photographer went to a man’s property where he was running some sort of auto salvage. She was there to take photos for the Auto Trader magazine, and disappeared. After hearing that was the last location she was known to be at before her disappearance, the property was searched and bone fragments were found in a burn bin. Later DNA evidence proved she was raped, murdered, and burned by this man and assisted by the man’s mentally-challenged nephew. It makes you wonder, had she had a weapon or some way to defend herself, would this have turned out differently? I think so, but there are always many factors that play into that sort of thing. That story kind of hits home for me though since I’ve found myself in a few slightly uncomfortable situations as a photographer, though not quite uncomfortable enough to leave, if that makes sense.March 2, 2013 at 2:30 am #7464
Oh lol. yea no. I have no problem with guns, we don’t own any, but they don’t bother me. I based the zombie story on the posing, they aren’t just taking a picture with guns they are aiming off camera at “something”. So I made up a story at waht they are aiming at that amused. You read wayyyyy to much into that. 😀 I really meant that it amused me haha. My Good friend is my Zombie shelter goal, simply because of her arsenal 😉
I went to Zombies, because I’ve always liked apocalyptic/zombie novels/movies, and it’s in no short supply lately. Not because gun owners are crazy or whatever you were saying lolMarch 2, 2013 at 2:32 am #7465
LOL brown, that’s why my story works! if only the baby was naked, it would fit perfectly, the baby has no idea the horde of zombies decending upon it O.O hard hitting writing right there. Although nothing beats Moody’s newborn zombie in Autumn -_-
