    Oh, good! Thank you! I had based my previous impression of today's photographers on some of the photographers that are referenced on here.

    (what we are supposed to judge present-day photographers by)

    (quote) "OMG! You have GOT to see this photographer! (link) a...n...d... what we see in the link is trite, cliche, poorly done, technically flawed, and way over-hyped. "But all the celebrities have their portrait done by this photographer, therefore he's a celebrity photographer." "And he charges a fortune, so he MUST be good."

    These are definitely NOT your average yearbook photos. Good read. I know a couple of photographers that do a lot of senior shoots in the same vain. I will have to pass this on to them.

    My formal portait is in the yearbook. But there are no other photos of me in it because 2/3rds of the candid photos were taken by me.

    Just typical of the age. Weddings have gone from 18, or so, photos in total, to mega albums of multi-dozens of photos; not including the videos, environmental shots, destinations, etc. We've gone from a cherished moment for the bride, groom, family and guests, to an (un)forgettable over-hyped production.

    These "portraits" are typical of those who think their child isn't being properly valued in everyone's minds.

    In a mere six months, the senior album will be on a bookshelf or box, and not seen again until the 50th graduation reunion, or the 25th wedding anniversary. Maybe not even then.
