I started this threat so that we won't OT'ed Cannonised's XMM thread to death.
I am replying to nightmare, (this is the thread http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=380380) I disagree with his logic, I disagree with his reasonings.
And let's try to be civilized for once when discussing/debating/arguing about something or anything.
A model, who agreed to have his or her pictures taken and to allow it to be posted in public, or even private, it's part of the package, there will be comments and criticism that are directed at the model himself or herself. If cannot stand it, don't model. Using your logic, we actually should not even praise the model. I see lots of comments and praises on the models, but this is a photography forum, we shouldn't be doing that, right?
Worst among your logic is regarding male models. Why this sudden urge by so many on this forum to run to the defense of some model whom they really have no idea who she is, let alone know or befriended. This is absurd.
Btw, have you ever thought, it might actually be the photographers fault. The camera can add kilos or years to a body or face. So, have you even given this any thought, that the "auntie" comment, or other not flattering comment regarding the model, in this thread and others, were in fact directed at the photographer?
