    regardless of how good of a photog you are, you subjects need to be photogenic. can't photograph ugly.

    And I love a ton of her work.

    I think the photos are pretty good actually. Just because the guy's fat doesn't mean the photos are terrible :dunno:

    Then I don't really understand what you are saying...

    These photos of ugly people go to prove that you can't photograph ugly people? :confused:

    never said they were bad people... but photogenic people look better in pictures. Hell, my fat ass doesn't need to be in front of a camera. EVER!

    I think his shirt really doesn't help his cause. Fat is fat, but there are ways to dress that will make you look presentable regardless of size.

    sorry, just couldn't help but chuckle at this line at the end. It's childish, I know, but then again I can be quite childish at times.

    Sarah's a fantastic photographer... and imagine how those two would look with a crappy photog doing the shots.

    I remember two years ago her asking basic camera questions. No more of that for her...she's an amazing artist now.

    I think he's saying that no matter how good the photography, it's not as visually appealing. It's a sad thing to say, but it's true. People will tend to be drawn into pics of "pretty" people, those are the pictures that sell other clients.

    in college i had 2 roommates.
    one of them would bring his gf over all the time, and my other roommate and i frequently heard them having sex. both of us were annoyed, but my roommate added that he wouldn't mind it as much if both of them were good looking. :o

    last time I checked "dressing clients" wasn't in any of my packages. I'm more than happy to suggest what they should wear, but if they don't listen, not much I can do.

    If someone can't themselves up nice enough to take pictures, I'm going to do the best I can, but won't promise shit.
