The internet is awash with comments about some photos by Joe Klamar. You can see one such page here: http://www.petapixel.com/2012/07/01/us-olympic-team-portraits-come-under-scrutiny/ and a full gallery here: http://www.cbsnews.com/2300-33747_162-10012296.html?tag=page
Ok, before we have a witch hunt... I'd like to know some more info about these images. They are clearly straight out of the camera shots pre editing. The photographer was one of many who were shooting that day on their own set-ups, apparently under extremely difficult conditions. I've done a quick search (not extensive research) about this and the only people who are publishing the images appear to be people who want to criticise them. Have they been published by the US Olympic organisation? I can't find them. Have they been published by the photographer. I can't find them.
Looks like someone has got hold of some images from the shoot and decided to let them go viral. These might be images pre-edit (granted not sure what editing you could do to save some of them). These MIGHT be the rejects.
Here's the challenge... can anyone find where these images have been published somewhere other than part of a feature saying how bad the images are? Because if we can't find that then these are prerelease images which in reality may never have seen light of day other than someone leaking them. If that is the case it is unfair to judge them - I don't think any of us would ever wish to be judged on the images we have never made public.
Oh course if they have been released formally by the photographer or the US team then they deserve all the critisim they are getting.

The course is aimed at photographers who have a reasonable level of photographic knowledge. I have designed the course to be particularly suitable for those who have already completed my “Introduction to Digital Photography” course. If you have not completed that course, you should have an understanding of photographic techniques such as exposure, aperture, controlling depth of field, etc. Experience of using flash guns is useful but not essential. As with any course the time spent on any given subject will be tailored to reflect the current knowledge and experience of those attending.
Printed course materials will be provided to all attendees. Throughout the course there will be opportunities should you wish to have your photographs assessed to help you improve.
Places on the course will be limited. To book your place please visit this page: http://www.ians-studio.co.uk/events/ipc1-1209/
Please note: The course is designed for users of DSLR cameras. If you have a “compact” camera or a “bridge” camera please contact me to discuss its suitability for this course.

For tonight’s event we look at low key images. Think dark backgrounds (not always black), think shadows, think side lighting.
I am pleased to announce that the model for this event will be Zombie Candy aka Amber Dolovak Amber has been to the studio twice before and has proved a big hit both times. You can see her profile on purpleport here: http://purpleport.com/portfolio/zombiecandy/?referrer=iansstudio and on Purestorm here:http://www.purestorm.com/ZombieCandy
(And yes, that is Amber in the image I am using to promote this event)
We will also look at techniques to add a little colour to the dark background including the use of gels, and using coloured background but allowing them to go dark using the inverse square law.
Please book via my website: http://www.ians-studio.co.uk/events/low-key-night/
