    Here's a sample photo from a shoot I did for the gym I train at:

    [​IMG]

    We're making new flyers, posters, and maybe even shirts to promote the gym. I do photography and design as a side business, and since I train myself I can get the look fighters go for...and direct them easier.

    What do you guys think?

    You are a good photographer, but the picture is gay. If dude is gonna shave his chest, tell him to also trim that man carpet on his leg.

    The body paint is a little gay too. Not as gay as the ying yang tattoo, but pretty gay.

    Dude looks like if Frank Trigg and Xerxes had a gay love child.

    Unless you are a FREAK at photoshop you may have to reshoot it.

    Also, come off the contrast some...I'm thinking thats what makes it look like its a rape.

    So im not the only one thinking it should have a caption, "90% of all rapes are committed by an acquaintance"

    The whole look of the photo is intentional, photobucket just killed some of the quality though...too bad since the hi-res version looks brutal.

    It's funny too since when we were doing a shoot at the gym, it was like an episode of the main forum. I had the guys do a takedown scene, and it looked so gay that the guys were ripping each other up with comments like "keep your mouth closed", "remember it's only gay when the balls touch", etc.

    www.flickr.com doesn't degrade you pictures. You can upload full sized images.

    interesting concept.. lighting could have been much better. You have to hot of a light coming camera right, and not enough camera left and above. Also some very shotty dodge and burn work... post the original shot. What were you shooting with?

    also, when displaying pics on the net, you need to make sure they are set to sRBG.
