Please critique this one: http://instagram.com/p/oS-7J2jz8H/
I am wondering why “Gabriella kuhns” appears to be dodging a bullet as in The Matrix commercials. And, why does “One of my favourite models ever” not rate a capital letter at the start of her last name?May 23, 2014 at 6:06 am #18775Worst Case ScenarioParticipant

More cowbell! There’s a concept.
Way too “artsie” for my taste. I think I’ll leave it at that.May 26, 2014 at 8:30 am #18808EyeDocPhotogParticipant
I was referring to the one of the all-time greatest skits (post 1980, that is) on Saturday Night Live with guest host Christopher Walken, a scene that has taken on a life all it’s own. The magic created by this is that people to this day think all the characters in the episode were real and that this actually happened.
The bit was a spoof on VH1’s Behind the Music here in the US that rose to fame from the ‘how we did it, behind the scenes, home-movie-genre’ with various artists speaking extemporaneously about their rise (or fall) in the music world and a peak at the shows that make them famous (or infamous, as the case may be).
The skit on SNL was on an all-fiction account of Blue Oyster Cult and their cut of the track Don’t Fear the Reaper with Will Ferrell as the flamboyant hipster Gene Frenkle (to whom we learn at the end of the clip the video was dedicated – meanwhile he never existed). The only REAL character who was portrayed (albeit somewhat inaccurately via Walken’s poetic license) is Bruce Dickinson (played by Walken) who just a digitally re-mastering specialist at Sony who happened to work on the Blue Oyster Cult songs in the 90’s.
A great writeup of the bit and the lead singer’s comments can be found here:May 26, 2014 at 10:01 am #18811
LOL! It made the #1 spot on this top 10 list video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uShCUp2QYGsMay 28, 2014 at 10:05 pm #18844
I did look this up and found out, then this that was done (and that i had seen made much more sense to me).

Holy VSCO presets, Batman. Maybe someone should be critiquing YOUR work. (I’m referring to the OP).October 4, 2014 at 11:56 am #22779pikcheeseParticipant
@CoastalTog: I think OP’s work is solid. Yes, he cross processes but that doesn’t mean anything from a photographers standpoint. The line of thought “This looks like VSCO cam so it must suck” is a dangerous one and frankly, an amateurish one. What’s important is: are the photos interesting, well composed, well thought out and well executed. In all respects yes, yes they are. The processing is not ‘natural’ but neither is Kyle Thompson, Devin Supertramp or anything posted to Kinfolk yet they are all prof photographers.
Anyway, I would actually like to know how OP color grades. Curves? Gradient maps? Layer masking and layer overlay? So many choices and I am wondering which is least destructive to image depth.
