HOLY MOTHER OF GOD! WHAT IS THIS MONSTROSITY?!?


Are you talking about the person, the bad lighting or technique?

I don't know, these sort of websites make me feel yucky...are the girls who started it photographers? I'd love to have a look at their work. Maybe I'm a party pooper, but I just don't see the need to to get snarky/mean about actually people like the girls who started this website have. Making fun of other peoples decidedly bad work doesn't make your own work better.

I have to say though, some of it is so...interesting, it aspires to fine art levels.


I have to admit that I do find the snarkasm a little too much at times. But all they're doing is calling attention to the obvious, that too many camera owners think that they are automatically photographers. Much in the same way that every pinkneck who bought a horse and stuck it in their backyard, set up round pens and began hanging out their shingle as a *horse trainer*.

Same mentality, different application.

NEWS FLASH!!! Owning a horse does NOT automatically make you a horse trainer. It makes you only a horse owner, and nothing more. Owning a DSLR does NOT automatically make you a professional photographer, though it makes you capable of becoming a professional photographer....if you choose to put in the time.

Sadly, lots of camera owners get 'OMG! That is such an awesome pic!' on social media, for the most mediocre of images, that is it any wonder that they actually start to believe it and set up shop on Facebook? Then wonder why they ended up on YANAP?

Probably something like, 'Everyone on Facebook says I'm an awesome photographer! I'm going to start a photography business and charge $50 for weddings and learn PhotoShop and do all kinds of really cool stuff!'

OH, Good Lord, page 6. I actually flinched at the tiger face. Ugh. OH my word...made it to page 11 before I started feeling like a panic attack was coming on. What on earth are people thinking?

Page 10 you say?


Page 10? What's so skeery about a zombie woman on all fours shot from 3/4 front?

Now, page 9...there's some seriously BAD s**t happening there. Seriously.

Good to see YANAP is back!

Muwahahaa, my evil masterplan is working...YANAP is sidelining all of you poor schmucks err, my competitors, so you don't have time to shoot and enter and beat me! ;-)

Got to page 20 then I started to get nervous about finding one of my shots there...

Yeah, it was kinda neat, though I don't really get the concept. And yes ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Catherine_B, that's why I posted it here, not to encourage anyone here to be like them but to make us feel better when we're having a tough time ribboning or getting in the TT :-)

Just because something CAN be done, does not automatically mean it SHOULD be done.

But then again, the entertainment value is up there with the Walmart people :-)
