Too much photography play for my liking, something simpler would be nice.
AJ English
Well, unlike a lot of other people on this site, my photos aren't taken just for lookbook, these are photos taken for shoots or by friends. Beside, it's about the clothes, not the photography.
George Daneliuc
If it's about the clothes, why can't I see your jacket or shoes properly? You'll have to just accept that I disagree with your composition. Whether you take criticism on board or not is your prerogative, but trying to justify yourself doesn't change my opinion.
AJ English
It's not even MY composition, these were taken by a prominent photographer-- the fact that you 'cant see' something properly wasn't a concern when the photographs were being taken, and still really isn't a concern of mine now. There are two great views of the jacket, and if you dont know what Vans slip-ons look like, I wonder where you went to highschool. There's nothing of me in these photos I need to justify, I'm just identifying the flaws and irrational thinking in your 'opinions'.
George Daneliuc
I understand the artistic merit of the photography but I don't think it shows your outfit properly and makes certain items difficult to see. Whether I can identify what something looks like is beside the point, the photo doesn't properly illustrate how you look, regardless of how prominent the photographer might be. There's nothing factual or scientific about my opinion so it can't be flawed. As far as being irrational goes, well, you tell me how reasonable it is to go off on a tirade about a single criticism.
AJ English
Fashion is a fluid and living thing, static photos of soldier-like robots on a white wall inspires nothing in my heart, neither does it of those in the industry (as evidenced by the multitudes of editorials in every fashion magazine depicting looks even more skewed than this). I believe this set of photos does an excellent job of conveying my mood and energy, and gives the clothes a story and movement that I think is lacking in this community.

Plus, as someone who takes a lot of shots on people here, it would befit you to maybe post photos of what you think we should be doing differently, because looking at your myspace photos, you're far from having the credibility to say anything negative to anyone.
George Daneliuc
How immature of you to resort to such belittling tactics, myspace is a casual social network that in my case has nothing to do with fashion or style. A photo of me at work wearing my friend's sunglasses is extremely irrelevant.

Quite hypocritical of you to say "soldiers on a white wall" you mean, such as the picture you have as your avatar? Of course, creative license is a wonderful thing, but one of the rules on lookbook is that the outfit should be clearly visible. It is questionable that you require such elaborate photography to properly express yourself on a fashion website, one would think the clothing and the small restriction of showing your outfit would be enough. Fashion magazines take great liberties, this is true, though they still show the items properly. (and have to, for most of them are advertising the items as well).

To state that my credibility is based on my appearance or how I look on myspace is laughable. True, some outfits from me would lend credibility to my opinion, but I don't have this opportunity at the moment for personal reasons.
AJ English
It's important to put YOU into perspective, that's why I posted your photo-- you have them readily available for anyone to look at, so I dont see how it's belittlement (unless you think, as I do, that you dress embarrassingly).

Nevertheless, I do understand what you're saying, but from my point of view your opinion isn't valid, and also quite odd given the liberal nature of the fashion community. Nothing more will be said on this matter.

In the bottom right picture, it looks like your legs are an extension of the black background of your torso, and a paradox, you're disembodied, but struck by light.
Lovely pictures and outfit
