I recently shot a bride-bride wedding and it was a blast… I do tend to put more post time into the brides, so it added a lot of extra time I didn’t expect.February 23, 2015 at 5:57 am in reply to: This faux will most likely be sued… #25055
I looked at the (newer?) site for as long as I could stand the music…. no button to turn it off? wtf….
I didn’t see anything too horrible, but again, I only looked at a few images.February 22, 2014 at 6:19 pm in reply to: Looks like someone doesn't like this board… #17250
How about a captcha that required you to select which if the 6 images was NOT from a fauxtographer…
Unfortunately, there’s a lot of leeway on that, although it could probably be done. Miss it and it flags all your posts to be manually checked.
Anyways, looks like most of the spam is cleaned up, and even some false positives have been made visible.January 11, 2014 at 8:16 pm in reply to: Is there anything my friend can do? #16096
I’m not going to be too sympathetic since she didn’t not like the shots enough to get someone else to shoot them. Not much difference between 3 or 4 mo.
Granted free shoots might go on the back burner, this tog is lying about losing the images. Start leaving bad reviews, and offer to pull them down once it’s resolved.December 6, 2013 at 3:47 pm in reply to: DIY Beauty Dish #15579
I have lots of diy light modifiers.December 4, 2013 at 6:18 am in reply to: On Camera Monitors #15522
You might get a hoodman loupe to help with viewing. An 8×6 monitor will not be useful. Most LCDs are already bigger than that.December 1, 2013 at 12:26 am in reply to: I am not a photographer, but … #15455
Dunno why it thought that was spam, IHF.
I don’t do a lot on this site, but was able to un-flag your post. I left the final one.November 24, 2013 at 4:23 pm in reply to: Let me have it. #15353
Your best lighting and posing is on the black man, and even then the wrap on his face was a bit hot. The others largely look contrived or poorly exposed. Post processing and lighting technique, as said above, need work.
Your single light images would’ve really benefitted from a reflector and proper exposure.
You might calibrate your monitor to verify it’s not set too bright.November 14, 2013 at 7:42 pm in reply to: Consistent Tones in Post #15187
I started using LR for the keyword database, but quickly found I could do the majority of my editing in it. The noise reduction is great, as are the lens corrections and all editing that doesn’t require layers.
As far as consistent tones, you need consistent light. The biggest source of bad tones I get comes from different colors of light.November 14, 2013 at 7:37 pm in reply to: kind of funny / mostly sad #15186
What the hell am I reading?
Someone signed up and paid for a course, decided they didn’t want to take it, threatened to reverse payment on the innocent teacher, then when the teacher is trying to find someone else to take the seat she’s getting attacked?
Small minds and small people deserve no attention.October 4, 2013 at 2:05 pm in reply to: Deleting Forum Post #13934
I think redacting the name is merely a courtesy. There’s little risk of liability when it’s clearly used in Fair Use.August 31, 2013 at 1:23 pm in reply to: Advice for career change #12490
Be aware that photography is one of the worst fields to enter at this point. It’s not so much an exit strategy if you have a job now, but a “try not to starve” strategy for most people. Not only do you have to make solid images, but you have to have a very good business sense. The best photographer in the world will starve if he can’t sell.August 31, 2013 at 2:16 am in reply to: you have GOT TO BE KIDDING ME #12476
That slayed me. I think they captured nearly everything I hate about fauxtography in a single photo.August 22, 2013 at 4:12 am in reply to: friend of fauxtographer #12182
The september issue [of Vogue] is beautiful though. They really shine on that issue. I really wish they would put that kind of effort into every issue.
September is the most important issue of the year, for the fall fashions. They sell way, way more pages of advertisements, too. I would bet it’s 2x the size of the january issue. The cost of advertising is insanity for that month.
You can basically say that the september issue is really good, and not even say the year. It’s that consistent.
Hrm, I didn’t even think about that… I need to go buy that issue. As soon as I can forklift it into my car.August 20, 2013 at 2:32 am in reply to: Owning a DSLR doesn't make you a pro #12112
