    I think you do a pretty good job. I saw some poor focus issues but it could also be flickr compression.

    First pictures I saw weren’t bad actually. Did you blur this one’s bottom on post processing or did some tilt;shifting with the lens?

    Well Jason, after reviewing your work, first I suggest you get a much cheaper camera and ditch the lens collection.  Inexpensive kit lenses are all you really need – anything else is just taking money from naive people.  Then you should consider doing your edits in PicMonkey to make them more “real” – or maybe on your iPhone.  Finally – your watermarking is nowhere near obvious enough – work a bit harder on that…  😉

    It is done with the lens, but it’s not a t/s lens or a lens baby (awful crap).

    Wait what I mean is those poor focus issues could be flickr compression.

    lensbabies are really tough to nail focus, especially wide open.

    Well, yeah, given that they’re optically incapable of achieving sharp focus.

    i like your stuff :))))) i am so critical when it comes to watermarks. i like the less visible approach. to me, a watermark can ruin an image.

    No, no, no, you must have an enormous frilly script watermark spanning no less than 50% of the frame. That’s how the pros do it.

    Well for starters you can get your focus correct. Then you can actually get you settings correct. On your real estate photos you can see obvious lens distortion with the wide angle. On one of the shots of the room it looks like the wall is leaning. Sure lets call that professional. This is an easy fix in PS. In addition, try to get your horizons straight on your real estate  shots. Your model shots would be nice to know if they have a complete head every so often. Also the sun glare works on a few shots..Not every single one.  Get some credentials. Let’s see the awards and publications to back up the attitude. By the way, I am not a photographer but I do edit thousands of photos weekly.  I see nothing in your port that I have not seen a thousand times before. Nothing at all special or sparks any interest. You do not have to be a great photographer to recognize what is bad… I guess you could always call it art and that is subjective. But come on, on the real easte site.. How hard is it to shoot a room and make the walls look straight.

    Lulz. I think we can award you honorary fauxtog status for this.

    It is literally impossible under many circumstances, actually. Other times it’s not worth worrying about. My clients are thrilled with my work.

    Maybe you could post some photos you’ve edited that look exactly like mine.
