    Totally agreed with Darren, actually wanted to call a stop to this personal attacks and Darren is fast to point it out. Thank you so much ... it will be meaningless to continue this thread in such manner and it doesn't reflect well on ourselves as so called photographers.

    May the PEACE with us again ....

    At the end of the day, I still do not know what salon photography is all about other than my so called "preconceived (and wrong) idea". And I believe the same holds true for many members. So much attack on non-salonists and the salonists just can't put forward the truth properly. And in the process I get personal attacks.

    And what's with this anti-moderator's-posting that so many people are having?

    I agree, clubsnap is about photography, (even Salon photography, based on the views expressed for and against it).

    But I don't think its about trying to get extra letters after your name. That seems pretty unanimous based on the responses in this thread so far.

    This is no longer about salon photography but about 'fancy letters' as someone else put it. If the poster is trying to convince people of the merits of extra letters after a name, I think he's so not succeeding and probably wasting his time. Maybe he should go to some other forum like hardwarezone.

    salon style photography is fine art in photographs.

    for example;

    ken duncan's pano landscapes would be salon

    but... photojournalistic photos like the photo of the south vietnamese officer executing a vietcong prisoner in the street is not.

    Directional light, beautifully posed, lots of smoke....

    Does this qualify?

    I suppose many would just say that this is documentary photography. Salon or not? depends on which kind of salon you take part in. Anyway, good documentation on your part. I could nearly imagine winged angels in the background of smoke. And hey! I know the couple in the shot... they were my classmates, recently married. Have you got their permission to post it up in any case?

    dunno.... the chairs in the background quite distracting.... without them there would be an illusion of the couple walking on cloud nine ...

    come on guys, can't we be more tolerant of each others' styles, like we S'poreans being more tolerant of each others' CHOICE of religion. there is no need for name calling and personal attacks. take a step back, cool off!

    That means you must still be in NS. No wonder so free. How come you're listed as SGH O&G at MOH website?

    Ah so. Yeah, those were the days of working through the night. Boy am I glad that's behind me.

    Rachael is my wife's cousin. I shot the wedding for them as a backup photog. For the dinner, I was only using a Hexar, and this came out as a lucky shot. Fuji Neopan 1600 @ ISO 3200, 35mm f2.

    No permission, but I'm sure they won't mind, since I did the slideshow for their dinner. Anyway they're somewhere in Sri Lanka now, and this thread will be lost by the time they get back.
