every time I turn on the local news, I see completely horrible angles, bad production, random shots from the site that don't tie in to what they are talking about, etc. I know its not photography, but for supposed professionals, I've seen better coverage by middle schoolers

I saw this thread on another board and was cringing at some of the photos, awkwardfamilyphotos was one of the links and there are some "professional/studio" pics on there that are so bad it is unreal. It seems like every other person with a dslr thinks they can be a pro

I've seen a few 'pros' and I use that term loosely, that had heads half cut off, feet cut off and these were just basic wedding or portrait stuff and you could tell there was no artistic reason behind doing any of it. It was just terribly executed. I think it has to do with the expectation of what is good also. Have you seen the photos people post on FB? There always fuzzy and shaky and terrible but they still put them up there. I think people just don't care.

You can't say any photo is bad these days, you may hurt somebodies feelings, and yeah I have somebody who post horrid flash shadowed shots on facebook, and all her friends always comment on how great the shots are, and thats what drives poor photography. Peoples family and friends that do not know any differently.

I recall when I first showed up here after all my friends said I took great photos, it was a wake up call, and there are a ton out there that truly need that 5 AM wake up call, thats for sure.

I would put a link to this Facebook photographer but I shouldn't. Apparently, this photog shoots the same subject (cycling races) as I do. However, since this photog tags a lot of my "people" on my friend's list, I get updates. :) So, I am forced to look at horrible photography, my eyes, my eyes.

There was one photo this photog tagged my friend/client on it. His friend couldn't even identify who is who in the shot. You tagged someone but the photo is so bad that no one could even know who is who in the shot (out of focus, underexposed, muddy looking lighting condition, and the whole shot feels like "dirt.") Then, my client linked one of my shots to this photog's page and to show his friend the other better photograph of himself. That was bad. I would like do that at times since this photog's works just sucked so bad. Of course, I would never do such a thing out of professional reason, linking my shot to this photog's facebook page to show how bad they are.

I truly believe that some photog just would never learn. This photog has been shooting for about a year, close to. Nothing changed. Same kind of crappy shots (muddy looking, missed focus, no cropping, unrecognizable faces, and never change the composition at all if there is one). Why even bother shooting these races??? What's the point?

At times, what comes out of my camera would have to rank as some of the worst I've seen.

mclldavidson, it's against POTN rules to post photos that are not yours! Please remove those pronto before you get into trouble with a mod! You can poste a link!

Was following this guy on Facebook for a awhile, he just launched a blog separate from the facebook stuff. Worth it just for the drama when a photographer finds their work being talked about like this. some of the threads on facebook were hilarious.

Sometimes the people/celebs on the CNN site still have red eyes. I mean come-on you can't take 2 minutes to clean that up before you post the story???
