Photographing Take Back the Night

The tables start filling, I began walking around looking at the hundreds of shirts hung all over. Each hand made by a person with a message to other women who have survived, or to those who are in bad situations. Some remembering those who didn't make it out alive....and then it hits me-figuratively-I realize the WHY I needed to be there that day and the tears well in my eyes.

Plagiarism in the Photography World

 

It is such a sad day when a creative person, has to steal things from other people to be....creative! These people, these known names are validating all the thieves out there by doing the same thing that if it were to happen to them, they would publicly go after the person taking from them. Of course she issued another apology, but when you are apologizing for the same fuck up (pardon my french,) for the second time, it means you didn't learn the first time, and your apology was bullshit. Your words mean nothing now, and your reputation is going down the drain because of it. I wouldn't hire a wedding photographer that i found out to be a thief. How could anyone trust them? I couldn't.

Sorry Miley Cyrus I was a Bitch

Being labeled sucks-especially if they don't fit you and your personality at all. Labels and names are shitty. We are free to judge whomever we want, but behind the keyboard we have become so very bold with our words. We need to stop, and think, *really think*, before saying the first negative thing that comes to mind. Suicide rates amongst the young are increasing, and it is simply sad. There doesn't need to be all this venom spewed just because it's easier now. For every negative thing you think of someone, stop. Think two positive things and say a positive instead.
