| p.1 #7 · UK: Photog recommendation ? |
I'm 80+ % reportage, and I say this without meaning to denigrate anyone who advertises specialising in the area, because everyone on this site KNOW how hard it is and how incredibly talented someone like Chuck A is....but I've always slightly felt that:
a) reportage is a label that a lot of technically incompetent Uncle Bobs hide behind because they don't have the skills necessary to do posing and lighting.
I hope it goes without saying that what they're doing is "point and shoot" and not reportage, I hope I'm preaching to the converted, but I want to make it crystal clear before anyone gets offended.
b) a lot of the best reportage stuff lacks context to outsiders who weren't there on the day.
Not trying to start a war, just an explanation of why I don't show a huge amount of it on my site, I tend to explain the 80% thing in meetings and bring along an ipad with whole weddings on to show it.
