No offence to all but this a question i've been challenging myself
Are the portraits on CS just shooting a pretty face(same angle, bokeh, poses, albeit different dresses and face) and nothing else?
Aesthetically and techinically wise, some are really good but is the recipe used all over and over again only on different models and location?
Of course some works are really mind blowing but they are very rare here.
Are we expecting to see true blue improvement in pictures in terms of controlled lighting and concepts other than a outdoor shoot and everyone shooting the same model with almost similar angles ( a few degree of difference if they stand near each other).
The creation and first meetup of Sg Strobist I thought was a great leap for newbie photographers like myself even though I read about it only after it concluded.
Mr flipfreak has been experimenting with off shoe lighting and that's quite encouraging too, will we see more budding and learning photographers follow in that footstep soon?
I'm just voicing my opinions, if there's any direct flaming please pm and curse me but I am looking forward to likeminded and un-likeminded point of views!
