How Orange People Can Give You TNS

>> Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Recently I have come across some questionable photography but also a lot of kind advice of why NOT to be so critical of others' work.

For instance that person could be just starting out and still learning their craft.
Maybe they just need some guidance.
They could be portfolio-building.
Good taste isn't something that clients are born with.

Who knows, but all I do know is that there should be a ban of normal people looking like oompa loompas in photographs where they weren't meant to be in costume. I still have freedom of speech so I will say it, some people need to reevaluate their career pathway when their product looks worse than when my son uses his 1.3 mega pixel Mickey Mouse camera.


 Has produced this from a three yr old :

( I'll grant you it's not a picture of people but at least the colors are right)
Legally and morally I can not use the actual photos that irk me so I will purposefully "mess" up some of my own photos to "replicate" the edit styles I'm going to rant about.

1. The Oompa Loompa?

The offender :

My original: (taken with my Canon Rebel XSi  three days after the purchase I sure was a rookie and still consider myself one.)

2. Rudolph the red faced kid? (mostly babies but unfortunately at this time I could not find a suitable example so I'll use my own kid)
The offender:

The original: (yes kids have red skin and so do some adults but they need not be Cinnamon Imperials there should be a balance between that and "normal")

3. The grand daddy of all my peeves is that photo that causes TNS, you know what photo I'm talking about and I'll leave the example out in this case because I refuse to recreate it as I don't want people to suffer TNS on my blog. Now what exactly is TNS? Don't you remember? Well here's a refresher :

I am certain that there is a possibilty that orange people can give you TNS but that would be an absolute nightmare.

Here are some fixes:

I have officially entered the third trimester of my third pregnancy. week 25 It seems it was only yesterday I was announcing that I had a positive pregnancy test. But time sure flies and even more when huge changes are about to take place. Our lives yet again, are going to be turned upside down. These are not only small changes that are going to happen but catastrophic ones.

The end of this month marks the beginning of my husband's 6th (?) deployment, yes the ? is there because believe it or not I have lost count. This is the life of the Army family, we just put up and in my case "shut up". I'm not much of a complainer, life taught me to be self sufficient and it is actually one of the things my husband loves about me the most. Don't get me wrong, I sure like to be pampered and treated like a queen but it gets old fast! At lest for me it does. I'm a big girl and I can mow the lawn on my own, fix a broken toilet handle, check the oil on my vehicle, get the finances in order, and take care of the kids. Army wives are SUPER MOM's didn't you know that?
Being pregnant doesn't make things any different, the Army will still take my husband half a world away, and make our routine hectic. Between taking care of business and video chat sessions that break our hearts in a million pieces, the year will go fast. Before we know it Miguel will be back home enjoying his bigger family.
