. There is a very interesting discussion over at NikonGear in their PJ section where these same 4 images are posted. You might learn something about the philosophy of photography.
I think your opinion is a bit of a cop out. Taken on its face you are applying a very narrow definition of street photography. If nobody broke the rules, nothing would ever change. Not taken on its face, there is a strong possibility that most of my detractors are having a negative emotional reaction to something that challenges their values, but are trying hide their true feelings.JMHO...These images are not representative of good street photography. LOL
Whatever floats your boat old man
+1...these are "snapshots"JMHO...These images are not representative of good street photography.
I disagree with that assessment. Your subjects are interesting...it is just that I would prefer that the photos do them justice.Some opined that all of these women were average looking.
So, people don't make comments about bad things? I think another Philosophy 101 course with an emphasis on Logic ("if this, then that") might be in order.Frankly, if this was bad photography, nobody would even bother to say anything about it.
I did read the thread at Nikongear. As I said, the whole discussion makes me think about how much a subject is capable of carrying a photograph.gnagel, calling anyone's photography a snapshot is a cop out. Same comments to you. Is your dislike based on a true analysis of photography or a cultural/emotional difficulty with subject matter that is too sexual for you? Did you read the thread over at Nikongear? Its so easy to say these lousy things when you don't have to look me in the eye.
As for anything 101, you are the one in need of an education. Really, nobody bothers if the stuff is crap. Do you remember Robert Maplethorpe? People said his work was pornographic. Sally Mann was accused of child porn. There are so many examples that the biggest mistake you can make is to go in the direction that you are going in.
By the way, I really don't like playing pay back games.
Your absence will be appreciated. However, considering some of your remarks in a previous thread, I find your comments to be disingenuous. Again, denials mean absolutely nothing to me due to the inherent lack of veracity in internet forums. The only objective measurement is the number of views, and for that matter, the amount of fuss the whole thing creates.I have no idea what you are referring to regarding "pay back games"? In any event, I have no interest in playing games. I won't be posting within this thread any further.
