I Asked First

Every so often, SGL sends me email that I want to blog. I always ask for consent. He needs a .sig like Roland Tanglao --

this email is: [ ] bloggable [x] ask first [ ] private

.sig brought to my attention by SGL, in response to my asking if I could blog his --

Narcissism is back in style. You didn't hear?

I was ranting about people posting photos of themselves that lack skill in lighting, composition or anything other than their egotistical need to see

A) themselves online for public consumption -- Photo sharing sites.
B) adoring comments from random strangers who care not about skill in lighting, composition or anything other than an attractive face &/or body.

From what I've seen, they can improve on the face &/or body, too.

So what, you think they're ugly?

I think that even if they're gorgeous, they can pay a little more attention to lighting, dress & background. Fine, you're narcissistic -- Let's pay attention to YOU! Not the *unintentional* junk in the background. You took the time to brush your hair; put on make-up & pose -- Take another 2 minutes to remove the pile of dirty laundry in the corner!
