Who isnt a photographer these days?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Are you a photographer? Do you think the title is extremely overused? Do you feel that your work is worthy of the title "Professional Photographer"? Do you want to throw yourself over a cliff, when you see people charge $25 for a session, and offer their Picnik edited photos on a disc?

Show off your work, if you're brave enough!

May I ask how they are crowded? Noy trying to sound like a bitch or anything.

I'm sorry but your photography sucks. You crowd your pictures and make them look very unbalanced

I actually AM a professional photographer.  This is just a little sampling of my work to "prove" it.  lol  :-)

 I am at a loss to be honest a 10 year veteran of photography and this is the result????

The soft focus is waaaaay overdone to the point where it looks as if you have deliberately blurred out a person.  The worse ones are the couple pics...they dont look natural at all, forced.

Quoting Anonymous:

Goodness, I hate to say/write this, but I have to agree. Your pics are not good enough to charge people or call your self a Pro. They are dark and you went crazy with the soft focus, you also have limbs cut off and that is a no no. How long have you been taking pictures? when did you become pro??

Quoting Anonymous:

I have to agree. Very amateur looking. Sorry. They're nice. But I can take pictures like these with my phone.

Mine is just a SLR. I do not have a DSLR. Then again. I don't call myself a photographer or do "shoots". I am just a snap happy person. My father and I are planning a small trip to take pictures of steeples soon. He owned a Ariel photography business.

Quoting CosmicPossum:

I am NOT a photographer.  I'm just a woman with a camera who enjoys taking pictures as a hobby.  I must say every person (especially women it seems) with a camera, especially a DSLR, thinks they can start a photography business to make money now.  I wish i could afford a high dollar camera and had more skill, but for my hobby it isn't necessary.

Oh Hun I'm really sorry to say but these pics are not very good :/ I was going to say maybe with some classes and practice you could get better but you said you've been doing this over a decade.

My mother is a real professional photogropher and I don't know much about photography but I can tell these pics aren't great. I'm sorry. I'm really not trying to be rude. I think I could probably take pics as good as these.

Have you taken classes or are you self taught? Do you belong to any associations?


Quoting gapeach0513:

 Um, ok.  You are free to your opinion, but I've been doing this a long time, and clients pay hundreds of dollars per session on my work, so I think many would disagree with you.

Far from a professional.....amateur at best.......

The blur adds too much distraction, making it look like there's too much going on
