Camera Clicker – Cole’s facebook page had a few photos he took with his 1000D, and they recieved hundreds upon hundreds of likes, and they weren’t composed well.
This guy thinks he’s the greatest “photographer”, and he is really popular for it. He is only 16 aswell, those kind of fauxtographers are the worst.
The gullible fauxtographer of NZ
“Adriane’s Photo’s” aren’t shockingly terrible, I might a bit tired but I actually like the composition of her cover photo.
There hasn’t been a post with links to fauxtographers in ages, what has this forum become?
It’s a great photo technically speaking – you have nailed the lighting, depth of field and all that other stuff. However I would consider changing the angle to eye level or just slightly below. If the angle pointing up is too high you can distort the people. Overall a great shot for your first time!
Anything else just ask,
Camera doesn’t matter, it’s the person using it, and anyway invest in a good lens before a good body. A 24-70mm f2.8 on an 1100D would be better than an 18-55 on a 1D, if the 1D took EF-S lenses
I wondered if it was there to set a theme, your best picture, or maybe even a picture of you (not sure why though).
Great shot though.
This hate on Brown Eyed Girl is getting to a point where we should all reconsider what we’re saying. At least be more polite, these comments are brutal.
My Heart – Your site is good – but can be a bit hard to navigate, and the music is a bit distracting (as others have mentioned). Apart from that most of the photos are pretty good. Is there any reason for the photo on the main page?
No, it wasn’t aimed directly at you, and I’m sorry if you were offended. It was a general comment aimed at everyone still using the imperial system. It was not intended to be thought of as a “dig” at anyone.
Am I the only one here who uses Metric?
Brown eyed girl – You don’t need people to shoot outside in the snow, maybe try some snowy landscapes? If done right they look pretty cool.
I’m not taking sides, but Brown Eyed Girl does have some valid excuses, and degrees Celsius, do you speak it?!?
This fauxtography is beyond words, and the comments are even worse!

I’m sure they’d love to hear.
The composition in the first shot is actually quite attractive, I like how you framed the person in the bottom third of the picture. You definitely should invest in a lens hood, you can pick up on eBay quite cheap and it will improve the quality of your images. The other photos are good I had a hard time trying to find something to critique. The composition is balanced, and looks very nice. Lens flare is almost impossible to fix in Photoshop with flare that large. Anything else just ask
You are not a fauxtographer, however your shots look like they need work. For animal shots, maybe try a different prospective? Get eye level with the animal and shoot from there. Also animal shots have no effect if the eyes are not the focal point of the image (the animal has to be looking at the camera) A couple rules to follow are try a get the crop as tight as possible, and if an item doesn’t need to be in the shot, don’t include it as it may distract the viewers attention. That being said, make sure your photos have some context to them, otherwise no-one will understand what you’re trying to communicate. For the record, you don’t have to charge to be a fauxtographer, as a fauxtographer is a person who thinks they’re a good photographer, but really all they’re images are crap
