Crooked pictures, my Thursday Rant

Posted by Sandra on July 16, 2009

Oh how I can’t wait for this fad to pass.  I swear, every time I see a photog’s website or a blog and they have their pictures on a slant, I cringe.  Next to “selective coloring” (where everything is black & white except one thing, like a flower, or a hat), this is the most disturbing and distracting trend in personal photography I’ve seen.

Please make it stop.  It doesn’t look good.  I don’t know who told you it looks good.  If you’re a professional, you should know better.  A novice, you’re copying a hopefully very short-lived annoying trend.  It’s not fashion photography.  It’s horrible.  Straighten up the pictures, keep them all in color or all in black and white and make the gazillions of people who want to bang their heads against the wall when they see slanted red-rose black & white pictures happy again.


And that, folks, is my Thursday rant.

    What’s even better than having the rose be the only thing in color when the photo is black and white? I know, I know! Having the preschoolers in the photo holding said flower be dressed as a bride and groom.

    It’s not necessarily weird or disturbing to me…I can’t put my finger on it…it’s just annoying and NOT CUTE and kind of stupid : ) In my opinion, of course.

    Have a great day!
