And you Aerosmith types might have to google Twiggy....and Michelle Phillips...
Uhmm....

Look closely at those photos and you'll find several anachronisms that indicate that the photos were stages. Carefully but not perfectly. Add in the overall "look" and it's all a miss instead of a hit and thats coming from someone who did photographic illustration for a living for a long time.

So they're not vintage. And?


What's wrong with them? I think they look terrific.

Either that or they put this outfit together out of someones grandmothers closet! Red and black jacket paired up with brown leather and tan pants? Yech!

The girls OK I guess. (Especially if it's your sister!) The bikes perfect but nothing else fits, including the building with the service station signs, thats obviously not a service station! I cant even figure out whether thewy were photographing the bike of the chick.

Just awful...!

Sorry neither the bike nor the chica are old, but she's mine!

Thats also an extremely well done photo illustration. The background looks period, the bike is a chopped vintage bike (Check out the front end and pipes.) and the model is wearing a vintage outfit, has a vintage hair style and makeup and the lighting is broad and flat. Only the shoes give it away and I can easily overlook that detail, because they sorta fit the look.

Who took this photo?

I'm forever amused at the energy people will extend to criticize the work of others. What's the payoff? Do they feel somehow more powerful?

Truth is, any image is easily picked apart- the appeal is subjective. While I might agree that the styling on this image is not to my taste, neither is the lighting or composition. So what?

But suppose this was shot by an amateur who'd never been on a real shoot before? I'd say it was a pretty good effort, and encourage them to keep working.

Why the hate?

And, by picking on the work of others, how many images will not be posted to avoid the critic? Possibly many.

Thanks.

Hate? The only person hating here is YOU! (I don't remember anyone bringing up that word in the entire thread until you just did!

Firstly, I answered the question that bpeckm asked: "Am I nuts in thinking that the top four photos are vintage.... bottom one with V-twin is doubtful, but the others....? Or are these staged-vintage?" If you think they're vintage, go ahead I won't care but I don't and gave my reasons for thinking so.

OTOH, yes, it bothers me when someone takes a nice looking girl and makes her look like a clown but you're right. In the end who cares? It's just one more example of a poorly thought out photograph and you can find that anyplace. At least I didn't make fun of her as a couple of other guys did.

That said, please go get a friggin life.... We all come here to enjoy ourselves and do so in our own ways. If you don't like what I have to say, just move on. Your attempt to control the dialog here runs counter to the process.

PS: me? Negative? Check post #1173

Mr Fake Name is perhaps overly sensitive? It sounded to me as if he (mymindsock) liked that picture a lot. As do I.

Sigh. You're right.

OK, I'll take her back and take ALL OF HER CLOTHES OFF, and start all over again.
