    Well, how can you go wrong with a fauxtographer who will aim for your “happyness” and generally just make you “extatic” with his “pitures”. Really? There are so many grammatical and spelling/punctuation errors I could barely make out what he was trying to get across. Oh, and the photos suck, too.

    I’m not really understanding the point of this “experiment”. You take poorly composed images with low end gear compared with “better” composed images with higher end gear. The results are not exactly earth shattering findings. You are establishing a fact that has already known to be true. Plus, who cares what the fauxtogs think?

    Some nice work in there, mostly the senior portraits. Not a fan of any of the child portraits (focus and exposure issues) or the maternity photos (just not very creative or flattering), and the “other work” section has a lot of blood, knives and morbid themes. Don’t get me wrong, I love morbidity in photography, and I love cemeteries, but it doesn’t fit with the type of style you are marketing. In other words, it may turn people off. (parents looking for senior portraits, or child portraits).  Also, one with the balloon that says F- you- remove that as well. If you want to show your personal work, I would have another site dedicated to that.

    Wow- that was a lot of numbers, estimates and so on…. It is obvious that was NOT a composite. You can read the whole list of comments on the fb page. Why would a photographer lie and pretend to not use a composite when she is being harshly criticized by her friends/clients for the lack of safety and skill involved in this shot? It’s only bad publicity for her…. and will probably affect her amount of business she receives later on. BTW- you can tell from  the shot that she would not have the skill to use a composite, anyway- and I find it hard to believe a fauxtographer like this would have a retoucher.

    Wow…. I had my suspicions. Makes sense- random poster shows up vehemently defending Ashley with ridiculous reasoning and horrible spelling, and then also just so happens to get a phone call from the authorities threatening her to stop “slandering” her (which doesn’t make sense, anyway, when she wasn’t even the one speaking negatively about her work). I think you should just keep doing what you’ve been doing- your “business” will eventually peter out. You attract low class clients with low class work, so it is no skin off any legitimate photographer’s nose, anyway, because they aren’t marketing to your type of clients in the first place. So keep on keepin’ on, fauxtog.

    Agree. You have several years of practicing to go before charging any amount of money. I think reading as many books on basic photography and portraiture/lighting as you can will definitely help as well. Oh and absolutely practice and read up on editing.

    Found this gem: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=375370139172323&set=pb.174738102568862.-2207520000.1353987535&type=3&theater

    This is probably the scariest newborn photo I’ve ever laid eyes on. I think this girl actually has a talent for taking fugly photos that few other people have.

    Did you look at her/his portfolio before hand? If not a professional portfolio, at least some photos they’ve taken in the past? If not, you’ve got no argument. You got exactly what you paid for.
