agree with your rant totally. I lecture in fashion photography and cant tell you the amount of drivel i see every day from students whose idea of inspiration is to do a google image search. lomo-loving-turn-up-wearing-bad-cigarette-smoking-cool-till-I-die Hipsters....hating every one of them.
Yea, see the lomography thing is a whole other discussion. I don’t know many photographers personally that use or obsess over stuff like that… but a lot of the kids that are into photography on tumblr definitely are, and yes its equally as frustrating.
Its all just picnics and light leaks to them. haha
Because that’s all that’s popping up on my tumblr feed.
And I’m disappointed in some of the things I’ve been forced to post recently just to keep it active. I wish someone would create something recent that didn’t just look like a hot broad making faces for a photo booth you know?
Who even needs the photographer for that… Just set up a tripod and hand the Russian model the remote.
