But ... Are they the finished images, or has somebody got hold of the sooc shots and posted those?
If it is on the wire, that is final.
I am guessing that these are BTS images that got released out of context.
Nope, that was his real take on the shoot.
The photographer is primarily a spot news-type guy and doesn't do studio portraits ever. Fish out of water.
I'm wondering how much of the blame lies at the hands of the Olympic Committee that organised the shoot.
I'm good friends with a photographer that shot it and he said it was a pretty ordinary Media Summit shoot.
Yes, the images are poor, but the photographers had poor backgrounds and poor lighting to work with it seems to me.
The photographer controls what background and what lighting he uses. Can't blame the summit, it was the photographer's fault.
My comment was about them possibly not getting enough time to set up the lights.
Yeah, you are just incorrect. The lighting was up to the photographer. There were many other photographers there that didn't eff up the lighting.
