    Basically the idea behind this portfolio came from my friend and I after we had just finished practice. We both do photography and were discussing how much we hate emo-type pictures and how unnecessary it is to sprew all of one's own personal hate/bull**** for everyone else to see. So, we decided to begin making THE MOST cliche collection of our own "emo" photos which we're appropriately calling the "Salted Razors" series.

    Here's the first photo of the series for your own viewing pleasure. There will be more to come in the future!

    Making fun of that is not cool. My girlfriend used to have a serious problem with cutting before meeting me. then she'd pout salt into her wounds. Luckily the salt healed her wounds better but it really isn't cool. Unless you are conveying a serious message or emotion and not just poking fun of people who hate their lives, this is offensive. True many "emos" are fake and cut themselves because they think it's cool, and others
    to get attention, but some people have real issues.

    I don't like the fact its a ****-take of SH'ers despite majority of Emo's being fake and sheep like and not actually depressed... however from a technical POV I'd say the model looks more demented than depressed. He appears to be staring to hard to hold the pose and there is no sadness in his eyes to evoke the emotion your looking for. Get the model to work on the pose a bit and you could be onto a winner!

    Same here, Stretch. Same here.
    But my son's home early from school and he at least has a vague idea (I did not even have THAT) as to what "emo" stands for.

    But also he had to suggest I check out Wikipedia to find what is written there.

    IF it is to do with depression, basically, and self-harm, then yes, it is a delicate subject, and yes, then maybe it might be something that doesn't really bear to be made fun of, but - since these things EXIST - should not entirely be excluded from the big field of photography.

    IF you two, CHEE, are actually trying to kid those who are seriously suffering (which I doubt, I guess you are more trying to kid the scene that in itself only reflects who are seriously sad, depressed and self-harming, and I hope I am right), you should keep such photos to yourselves and not make them public.

    But, like I was saying, I doubt you are meaning to do that.

    As to the photo as photo ... :scratch: ... what can I say if the entire "emo"-business is next to unknown to me.....!?!?!?!?

    Well, of course I remember all the further discussion on "emo" as lifestyle versus really being sad, depressed and so on, even though it all got lost in the server outage, after which the most recent parts of the forum could not be restored.

    So to summarize it again, what you meant to mock in your photos is "emo" as an adopted LIFESTYLE, but not mock people who really, really suffer.

    Thought I should say so once again.

    No. Can't. Neither can the admins. It got LOST in the server outage. Unretrievably lost. Else Chase WOULD have restored it.

    That is why I summarized the outcome of our discussion.
