    Ok seriously just stop posting on my thread. “Dish it out but can’t take it” ? One grammatical error and now I’m the one being crucified. I’ve posted the least amount of comments on this thread but you’re singling me out of the crowd. Basically I’m harsh, over critical, and can’t speak correctly ? You’re way off topic and focusing on the wrong issues. ┬áNothing I’ve said has personally attacked the person my original post is referring to. Seriously…. Someone else posted about her having a camel toe in one of her self portraits, and you don’t say one word to that person. Just stick to the issue, and main purpose of this website & this thread, and leave me alone & carry on with your day.

    Uh oh ! I had a typo. Overt is supposed to be overly. Here comes another English lesson. Every one get your pencils & notebook out.

    Just go away ha ha. This thread is over a month old. How bored do you have to be to troll down that far and nitpick on one grammatical error ? I haven’t used any profanity, or any overt harsh words of criticism towards the fauxtographer I’m speaking of. Out of all the comments on this thread, you feel the need to specifically direct your attention towards me. Just do everyone a favor and get off my thread, and off this site. It’s obviously not for you.

    The website is called “You Are Not A Photographer”, NOT “You are Not an English Major”. If you don’t like the site or the criticism on these forums, you know where the door is. If the criticism offends you, then we can all probably assume you’re a fauxtographer yourself.

    I absolutely couldn’t agree more. I attend as many workshops and classes as I possibly can. It doesnt matter what the subject is, it’s probably something I can benefit from. Wether it be a technical or creative class. I just can’t fathom how someone can pick up a dslr, a couple cheap kit lenses and think they’re capable of shooting someone’s wedding. I went to my cousins wedding about a month after I got my 1st camera. I had the usual 70-300 3.5-5.6, and the 18-55 3.5-5.6, with my little Metz 36 (wayyyyyyy underpowered, completely auto, ttl) flash. Boy oh boy did I learn FAST that I was in over my head and I had TONS to learn. I immediately trashed the flash, bought the most powerful one I could find, with manual controls, tilt, swivel & zoom. I bought a 28-75 2.8 & a 70-200 2.8. Then started Finding as many classes as I could possibly enroll in. I’m thankful that I was just there as a guest and not the hired photographer . I fell flat on my butt (figuratively, not literally). But it was just what I needed to see what I got myself into, and realize how this was not going to be a cheap investment. I had tons to learn & I literally didnt own one piece of equipment that was suitable for any paid gig. Either she just doesn’t care, or is oblivious to the fact that she’s horrible. You’ll have to dig for it, but there’s a shot of the wedding precession coming down the aisle, and the poor groomsman and bridesmaid are clearly out of focus. The barn behind them is tack sharp. But she still edited it and posted it. Why how can you look at that picture and think its okay ? And her little flash, that she points dead straight on at her subjects with no diffuser whatsoever. Why ?! At least use one of the cheap $5 ones. I dislike on camera flash, but when I do use it, I use my Gary fong light sphere, bounced off the ceiling or wall. seeing her “work” just boils my blood.

    Yeah, horrible posing on top of it just being a horrible picture. The bride has no lighting or detail in her face whatsoever. This is the 2md one that I’ve seen that some type of fill flash could’ve helped tremendously. That concept seriously eludes her. She has her little d5000, a couple kit lenses and thinks she’s ready to take the photography world by storm. Whatever happened to investing in your equipment & god forbid investing in your education ? Not saying everyone needs a photography degree, I don’t have one. But crap, how about some classes or workshops ? A couple hundred dollar classes go a long way.

    I truly feel sorry for the woman who just booked a Wedding with her. Why ?! How in the hell could you look at that “two girls one love” photography page and think “wow, that looks great. I want those same $hitty pictures taken of my wedding.”

    Here’s another “great” one. Apparently the concept of fill flash eludes her.
