I like to think of myself as the type of person that not only knows a little bit about everything, but mostly as a person that knows everything about all things…but not to brag, that is why I offer this little service, I know, it’s my cross to bear, so to say.
Today though I though I would offer up a tid-bit of advice to my local newspaper.
Everyone loves to see a happy bride, OK so not everyone, but go with me on this one. So for crying out loud, why do you keep accepting shoddy photos of the happy couple and then printing them with even lower quality? Today for example you have a lovely couple displayed in a provocative pose, the young lady looking lovingly into the eyes of her betrothed, from none other than his lap. While I do appreciate that her full head of hair is displayed right in his crotch, and that he is actually looking quite enamored with the hopes of a delightful hummer in the all to soon future, I don’t understand. Unless, that is, the bride is horribly deformed and you are desperately trying to save her the disgrace that she will try and cover at the wedding with a lovely veil.
Last week was also a fine example; a beautiful backdrop, fine attire, perfect lighting, and then the ferocious scowl on the brides face and the look of horror in the groom’s eye. I was sure if the photographer had stepped back for the shot, one would have seen her holding a bloody mass of what was once his scrotum. For heavens sake: offer them a discounted price, lose the print and go on with out it, Photoshop it, anything.
