Wide angle portraits are no good
Plus the lighting was really shitty. Your thoughts?
the photographer conned her imo
just wanted to see her naked
he's got zero skill. i don't consider myself a professional and i would've done a much better job.
she also needs to tan
like are you fucking serious at the location?
the distortion is just too much he made her legs looks like fucking spaghetti noodles
i think i can do better, and that says a lot
repost the pics for those of us without subs
she had a photographer take those? looked p&s to me
you aren't missing much, trust me
fucking god...those pics SUCK!
Shitty pics + shitty girl = fail.
the whole thing was shitty...horrible lighting, posing etc
OTAP should contact her and see if she wants to do the same shots with us as a "workshop"
hell she coulda found a much better photographer who would've jumped at the opportunity to shoot her nude for TFP on Model Mayhem
I wouldve volunteered.
group shoot in Tampa, brb buying a plane ticket
bring your own PW, if you don't have one they can be rented for $50/hr
the pictures weren't meant to be super artistic. I just took them because she asked me to. I like wide angle stuff and I like weird locations. my apologies.
I just saw the pics this morning and don't know they whole story behind them and though not great I don't think they are too bad. They could have been alot better, especially if they were meant to be "modeling" pics, but if they were meant to be amateur porn pics, then not too bad when compared to the other amateur porn pics out there. If they were meant to be model quality pics, then they do fail at that. Though I will admit, there where a couple of poses I rather liked, sadly they seemed to be the most under exposed pics. If they were taken by some one just starting out, then not to bad either, if they were taken by a "pro" then he failed hard and should sell all of his gear right now.
I don't really consider myself a professional since I'm not doing every day and it's not my main source of income.
everyone's been giving her shit for these pictures and now they're trying to include me and give me a hard time. it doesn't bother me like it does her. I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing regardless of what the internet mafia says.
they shouldn't be giving her shit, just you.
She's cute and naked. She could DEFINITELY have taken some really nice nude/provocative images. The execution is your responsibility.
In all fairness, as someone who likes wide angle stuff, you should be well aware of how the distortion effects body parts. It was clearly the wrong choice for this job. You could have used a normal length lens and backed up a bit if you wanted the environment in.
I'd say you owe her a reshoot, done with the proper equipment for the type of shots she was looking for, instead of you playing with a lens because it's fun.
just to further my point, and to clarify a bit:
There are some shots that I actually like the wide angle, and think it gives you a pretty interesting effect, like this one:
But then there are shots like this, which are just so terrible and awkward that they actually ruin the whole shoot for me:
Granted, this is just 2 examples, but I could post about 250 more crazy distorted ruined ones for every good one.
I'm well aware what the wide angle does to body parts. sometimes, I like it. other times, I don't. I'm not going to go by the book on what people say is right or what they think is right. I'm not trying to appeal to other photographers. they aren't the ones paying me.
she has a huge cock.
just let it go. it's just a girl on the internet.
I can take the criticism and I can see where you're coming from. some people like it, most don't. it doesn't bother me.
