We All Need Some Art & Culture In Our Lives

It’s what sets us humans apart from the rest of the animals out there…

Collecting art is something that needs to be done at one point or another in our lives, whether it be vintage movie posters, oil paintings or even canvas prints of photos.

It’s what sets us humans apart from the rest of the animals out there…

So if you’re feeling a bit cultured and ready to spruce up that empty wall in your home or your office, maybe it’s time you get a canvas print of a photo done… maybe you should take a look at some of the images below and see if you like them? Then you can place an order with me and have them make your wall look amazing! Haha!

This isn’t going to be the toilet humour piece that the title of this article suggests, rather it’s about how a lot of photography has silly or lame effects and post-production photoshopping in order to make images look ‘cool’. These images are obviously not cool and definitely make the photos and the subjects in the photo look ridiculous. More so the photographer just comes off as having no skill and it could hurt their reputation.

I seem to be coming across a lot of photos lately from photographers who seem to think that a good photo is made up of badly composed subjects and poor editing. You know what I’m talking about… those effects that are lame, and look like they came out of kiddies colouring books. Actually that would be giving too much credit to those effects.

Part of the problem in my opinion is that nobody tells these photographers/photoshoppers that what they’re doing is actually shit. This can be likened to Idols rejects: The guys who are on the first few episodes auditioning. The contestants that everyone at home laughs their arses’ off at because they can’t sing to save their lives and make complete idiots of themselves.

See the thing is, they don’t know that they’re bad because the people they ask for opinions either don’t have the balls to tell them that they suck or don’t know any better themselves.

Here’s a tip: Ask someone who is in the same field that you’re trying to get into or that you feel is qualified or experienced enough to give you a proper opinion and possibly even advice on how you can better yourself.
