Apologies to the "Sound of Music" for the title.
I like to browse the r/photography subreddit on Reddit.com and someone asked, "As a photographer, what makes you cringe?"
I liked this answer:
Canvas wraps. Leicaphiles. People that shoot film for a vintage look or just to say they shoot film. Any type of photo where the processing is the main focus, IE HDR, blue channel pushing with old people, selective colour etc. Obvious faux bokeh/lens flares/god rays. Light painting. Camera tossing. Anyone who claims to be an "iphoneographer". Photography websites/magazines that push crap gadgets and gear onto amateurs. Instagram. The dutch angle. Circular fisheye shots. Stereotypical IR photographs, IE white trees black sky and a lake. To each their own but I cant stand some things.
I don't agree with all of his (could be her) comments, but some of it does get overdone. Now I feel compelled to go out and shoot a badly processed HDR image and a 40-degree dutch angle with fake bokeh. The subject, of course, will be my all-time bete noire of photography: the sleeping baby with ridiculous costumes and props.
