    Why would the Rebel line be for fauxtographers?

    I disagree on the shot of the baby.  While the baby does look awkward, that typical newborn “you’re going to drop me” pose going on, the image is not overexposed, and I can read the blocks just fine.  Yes, my monitor has also been calibrated.

    As for the couple in the frame, I think that’s nice, I have no issue with that photo.  I don’t think “wrong on so many levels” says anything… really…  If you got a reason for disliking it, spit it out.

    And as for the same couple with the leaves, my only issue with that photo is there is no foot room, I should be able to see all of her dress and all of his feet.  The expression on his face is funny, like he’s just humoring her and she looks like, “oh no, I should have thought this through, leaves are gonna be in my dress.”  It’s cute.  And truth be told, we weren’t there that day, we don’t know who’s idea this shot was or these people’s personalities.  Maybe this was their idea and fits them perfectly.  You can’t just call it time wasted.

    My use of “hateful” was in reference to senseless anger and outbursts, not asked-for critique when done properly.

    Well, for what it’s worth, I think the rest of you are being unnecesarily hard on browneyedgirl and overall just plain ridiculous about it. Let’s chill the freak out and be normal human beings here.  Not everyone agrees with your over-the-top and hateful statements.

    actually, I believe what YANAP does here can be largely considered Fair Use.  Probably 90% of the photos are screen shots taken from Facebook and contain low-res images which are posted for the purpose of critique or even parody.

    It’s like using the front cover of a book or DVD case in order to review that book or movie.

    They also don’t just blur out watermark, they are blurring out anything that’s identifying, names and company page names, etc.  While blurring the watermark is probably a problem, I believe they do it in order to keep people here from just going over there and trashing people on their pages… which, as you see, seems to happen from time to time when a link is posted.

    Copyright infringement for posting screenshots, I don’t believe so; copyright infringement for removing/blurring watermarks, probably.

    oh, I know.  Every time someone posts wedding photos like these: http://goportraitgallery.com/wedding34.shtml

    I want to cry for the bride and groom.  How HORRIBLE to have that happen to you.

    My second cousin hired someone for her wedding from my  home town (I’m across the country now) and I did almost cry for her, the woman used a Mark 5 (whatever it is, I’m Nikon lol) and used no flash in the church, shutter speed was 1/15 and aperture was somewhere in the 4’s I think – EVERYTHING was blurry.  And outside, she wasn’t much better.  Cousin just kept saying I don’t understand, our engagement photos were awesome.  I didn’t have the heart to tell her they weren’t.  I tried to edit up some of the pics, after the woman gave her the run around for a long time, and there just wasn’t anything I could really do.

    Yeah that’s what I mean.  It’s like, ok I’d like some money, so what can I set up shop doing?  I know it can be hard to get a job as a mw because employers think you’re just going to run off as soon as hubby’s transferred…  which you’d have to, so I see their point.  But really how hard is it to hone your craft before setting up shop, like youwishyouknew.  So tired of people not caring about their jobs and how they do them, be it photographers or electricians or painters or lawyers etc.  People are so damn lazy now, as a whole, and they ruin it for the rest of us.  I don’t understand why people have such crappy work ethics now, they just don’t give a damn about anything.

    My sister’s a mw.  She has a salon on the base she lives on – she’s out of country.  But guess what?  She went to school to be able to do this while her husband was stationed overseas, she got her license, and she learned her stuff.  These fauxs whine about not getting paid enough, but, um… yeah.

    @ Zackfish — my friend is in the St. Louis area but I won’t be recommending her because she’s incredibly busy right now and if you called her business you’d get the partner, who IS a fauxtog!  Ugh, I keep telling her to go on her own and stop cleaning up other’s messes.

     

    And yeah, not to be rude to military wives but what percentage of fauxtographers are military wives who are stationed somewhere?  80%?  85%?  😛

    Have been lurking for a while, I’m not a photographer myself, I just love looking at professional photographers work and thought I would post one I came across on fb, not all her work is terrible but this made me chuckle

    That whole album is going to give me nightmares.

    Ask and you shall receive.  Do we really think it would do any good to report her for copyright violation?  This probably sounds really petty, but I would like to see at least one fauxtog suffer some kind of repercussions for unprofessional conduct…

    Interesting, thanks!  Having had to serve several DMCAs over the years, I never thought you could actually make a complaint like that on behalf of a copyright you didn’t own yourself, like the DMCA must be about your own things.

    Just saw an ad for this chick in my local ad flyer, and of course I had to check it out…and immediately share it with all of you

    http://portraitsbytami.net/

    Am I the only one who is SERIOUSLY annoyed that not just fauxtogs but photogs will use music on their website that they CLEARLY cannot and do not own the copyright release for??  This chick is using Blake Shelton, right, like she paid for the rights to that.  I wish I knew of a way to report them, I’ve gotten to where I won’t even look at their site I get so ticked off lol.  Really though, how hard is it to pay the $40 for a stock song????
