Nipplegate follow-up - the funcrunch files


Nov. 15th, 2009 09:42 am Nipplegate follow-up

Thanks to everyone for the comments on my last post. Seems that the universal sentiment is that my nipply photo is a bit too risqué for my event photography business card. Several suggested that I consider using a crop of this pic instead:

Seeing double

I like the whimsical nature of it, but I'm heavier, am wearing glasses, have my old hair color, and am holding a non-pro camera (not that many non-pros would likely figure out that last part). I was thinking of using this more recent photo instead:

First haircut in 11 months

Again, this would only be for the back of the card, alongside my contact information. The main photos I want to showcase are my concert photography shots, and those are unlikely to change soon as I have model releases for the ones currently featured on the card.

I have some additional thoughts about possibly doing some figure modeling (beyond what I've done already for close friends), but I'll save that for another post...

Well yeah, I imagine the crop would be the same as for my LJ icon.

I still like the blue better - you're happier looking in it, and it shows off your technical skills, and you look perfectly nice in it.

Agreed, totally-- blue trumps red, even on the back of the business card.

Personally? I would consider re-shooting the blue-shirt picture if you can, up at the Exploratorium, so you can address your concerns with it and give it a fresh update.

The red shirt pic looks more like the funcrunch-I-know, except it looks more like something you'd see on the average person's MySpace profile than a clever photographer (who also happens to be visually striking, herself) self-portrait. A happier version of you is also more inviting for hire.

I like them both, although I think I'm leaning toward the more recent one.

But the main reason I'm commenting is to say glasses? What glasses? I keep staring at the first photo and, for the life of me, I don't see any glasses. Maybe that's evidence that I need new glasses?

I like the red shirt photo the best. I do like your nipply shot, but agree it sort of distracts from the photography. My eyes are drawn to the nipples and that's it - I don't notice anything else. The red shirt is more a serious shot of a photographer.
