Double Post

Fuck dialing it back. Political correctness is retarded & gay, and making certain topics taboo only charges them.

Also, one doesn't need to take past Intro to Psych to be taught that unprovoked, overly-defensive outbursts are a strong sign of repression/over compensation.

I'm going to assume all of this was a very elaborate April Fools day troll.

 

Well played, you weird bastards.

Cap, prefer something like the last couple listed, where the jacket is still closer to face on. I think you only need to show that the pants exist, people don't actually need to get a good view of the pants in the main shot. Your old angle showed off the jacket better (or maybe I'm just more used to it from trolling your ebay listings and watching your posts here shog[1].gif )

Presstablishment? That's a rare bird.

^^^ Wes, I know you're trying a new setup, but the dark suits in the middle of your post seem inordinately dark. More lighting? These are the HSMs, Lanvin, HF...I think your older setup were lit ok.

I agree, not really satisfied with this look either. I will try it for a week and see what happens. Unless I see a huge unexpected increase, I will probably go back to my usual look. I still have my standard shots too, which I might still end up using as my gallery pic.

Agreed, It may be the hanging pants are screwing with the reflective properties of the photo booth. Or possibly I forgot to adjust the shutter speed. Maybe a little of both.

I never show pants in my main shot and never had a single person ask if it was a suit. The description says "suit", its listed under "suit" section in ebay, give pants measurements, show multiple pictures of pants in the photos, etc. The PTO article was just making a point that sometimes suit jackets are sold as "sport coats" and happened to use your picture. Why they couldn't find an actual stripped suit jacket being sold as a sport coat I'm not sure as there are a ton of them!

post #67740 of 121826

^ Well, it's settled, back to the old layout. The pants on the hanger was a PITA anyway. Had to keep climbing up on a step stool to set them up and adjust them. Not to mention everything felt off-centered too. 

 

Thanks ALL for the feedback. worship.gif
