Okay, I know this isn’t a “fauxtographer” but I had to share this request for a photographer. They are willing to pay $15 an hour for their 9-12 hour wedding, and are even willing to let you use some of the photos you take for your portfolio. And hey….if you are good they may even offer to pay you more.
Here ya go… not claiming to be a professional photographer…but claiming to be a “photo shopping genius!”
Enjoy (I wish he had more examples. lol)
I agree and disagree about jzpics. Their wedding shots are not bad. I agree with IHF about not seeing any jaw dropping works of art, but they are nice enough. Not a faux for weddings. Their maternity and newborn stuff however…well…they should probably just stick to weddings. It seems that is what they are best at. If I only had their newborn and maternity to judge..then I would agree they are a Faux.
Wow those are bad. How do people get models/other people to actually pose like this?? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10203121418174912&set=pcb.10203121433215288&type=1&theater
Here is one from a random search. I must be missing something because they have over 7,000 likes. But they have glowing people, selective coloring, weird filters and fake sunflare….
And finally the weird filters: https://www.facebook.com/250621171664/photos/pb.250621171664.-2207520000.1396210077./10152280093246665/?type=3&theater
Oh and I almost forgot, funky borders: https://www.facebook.com/250621171664/photos/pb.250621171664.-2207520000.1396209815./10152156172416665/?type=3&theater
Omg that baby! Lmao. That face is priceless. The poor kid.
My husband was the one who created our contract. Doing something similar. I let him handle the business side of things (taxes, contracts, etc), and he is good at it. Makes it nice, so I can focus on the photography part. I would have no problem sharing my contract, with the understanding that they can’t copy it but can use it as a resource. I just don’t like the whole “sneakiness” of pretending to be a client. I am the type of person who would be happy to share information, knowledge…etc, all you have to do is politely ask and be upfront with me.
Her wedding photos were on her personal profile. But she did have some that were from her honeymoon in her portfolio.
Here is one that popped up on my newsfeed.
There’s more so feel free to look through it.
Just curious if you have seen any of the stuff that is going on with The Color Run?
This type of stuff makes me think twice about giving away photos to businesses. I think you should request something for compensation.
So far I agree with what everyone is saying. I should mention that I too have worked (and still temporarily work) in a well known mall studio. I have my own photography business, and the only reason I work in the mall studio is for the extra christmas spending cash….and because they practically begged me to come back and help out for the christmas rush. This is my last year there (which I did say last christmas..lol…but this year I am really done). If you hadn’t mentioned working in a mobile studio, I could have guessed it based on your Alisa album. =)
I learned quite a bit about interacting with people through the studio. But it helped me absolutely ZERO when it comes to lighting…camera settings…etc. I learned that from taking a couple college courses on it, and then putting that to work in real life situations. This is what I recommend for you. Working in a mobile studio might be helpful for some things, but it can also make you think you are a great photographer. I know someone who was a manager for 2 different companies in a “mall/mobile” studio. She quit to open her own business, and it was a bust. Because she didn’t know lighting…her camera…etc. Not saying this is you, but based on your photos, you have a lot to learn.
You specifically asked about this photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/areallifegirl/11427614883/
It needs fill light. Their eyes are very dark. The groom looks very red. (I am not looking at this on a calibrated monitor, but you have to remember that many clients aren’t going to be using calibrated monitors either). I understand that there were crowds or public, but it looks odd having part of the groom cut off by cropping. Maybe that could have been avoided by having them stand on the other side of the frame.
adent: that was my first guess…but at the same time I wouldn’t have been shocked if it was serious. We’ve had some “characters” on here. So ya never know.
CC I had the same problem. Then I realized its because it adds a space to the end of the link. Just erase the link and you should be able to get to it.
What exactly are you looking for? Website critiques…Photography critiques? Both? My first couple thoughts upon looking at your website. It takes too long to load. Not a fan of the way your main page is set up. The scrolling up photos makes me dizzy. And a lot of them look really grainy. Your “About Me” page tells me nothing about you. Why would you call it “Fauxtography”? Your webpage tells me absolutely nothing about your photography or even really why you have a webpage…I think it needs quite a bit of work.
nairbynairb: Wow….those…are…well there are no words.
Tiradia: LMAO at your Queen of England comment!
Looks to me like “Miranda’s photography” has discovered PS Actions….There’s a Faux that pops up on my page once in a while, whom I suspect recently discovered them as well. The giveaway is that they put it on EVERY photo, regardless of how bad it makes the pic look.One of which looks like a “lens flair” action…and it looks really bad and really fake. Not that I like lens flairs at all, but their is still a “right” way to do them.
