    Although some of the older photos are great, this Lohan photo doesn’t do much for me.

    Yes, she’s famous… Yes, Gaga is famous… The eyes are good, the hand is interesting, but the blown-out fish-face isn’t all that intriguing.

    If you take away the names of the photographer and subject you’re left with a MySpace photo.

      Agreed, this is the one that really stands out as being weak to me. The Sinatra shot is also fairly average as a shot, very amateurish.

      • faisal August 24, 2012 at 5:39 am #

        But its the effort which needs to be appreciated ;-)

    • icewater August 23, 2012 at 2:25 pm #

      that’s why its called snaphots… don’t expect too much.

    • Chris Fitzgerald August 23, 2012 at 7:20 pm #

      I’ll have to agree with Cris…I fear this is another example of the cult of celebrity rather than a good portrait. Seeing so many similar images of Lohan by Terry Richardson, I’m not really drawn to this at all. Without Lohan’s name, it’s nothing at all.
      Cosby, tho…love it.

    wow Cris I couldn’t disagree more.

    The mutually respected innocence the camera captures is what’s so incredible.
    Too often it’s ‘the photographer and the star’. If I was to get shot by Chas, my smile and mind would be caught in the persona of being photographed by someone so gifted in his craft…. if you look closely that’s what’s so gorgeous.

    Look at the peace in Lohan’s face. The knowledge that she’s not being shot as “a star” but just a mutual caring soul.
    You can see the same with Warhol and McKellen…. You almost can’t tell who might be more enamored with who… or even if they care about all that ‘famous’ bullshit anyways!!!

    The shots are raw – yes, but capture in a way that makes my heart fill. Thanks for the post Chas. That was rockin’!…. almost as much as Reignwolf yesterday… Holy crap… did y’all catch THAT!!!!?

      yawn…boring uninformed opinions of sheep
      yawn…this entire site oozes blandness
      yawn…at you silly septics who assume you are blessed with talent. You’re mistaken.

    The Sinatra pic is amazing.

  4. Ed August 23, 2012 at 11:06 am #

    Gotta agree with Cris on this one. There’s nothing in the Lohan pic for me, doesn’t matter whether it’s of and by a famous person or not.

  5. Jon Brooke August 23, 2012 at 1:28 pm #

    Is it April 1st already?

    Normally I share your aesthetic Chase, but this pic by Lady Gaga is truly awful – it’s not even a lucky shot by someone with no technical ability – it’s an unlucky shot by someone with no technical ability, and should have been deleted on the spot. Apart from being blown out in a particularly horrible way I find the bag hovering above her hand to be totally jarring and a distraction.

    Sure it’s somebody famous (I guess – actually I’m not really sure who Lindsay Lohan is) but she ain’t Marylin Monroe.

    This is definitely a case of Emperor’s new clothes.

    Just rubbish.

    • brett August 23, 2012 at 2:34 pm #

      but dont think that chase compiled this post?

  6. brett August 23, 2012 at 2:31 pm #

    very nice promotion chase, are you paying usage on these pics or just joining the fair use bandwagon? shame!

  7. c.d.embrey August 23, 2012 at 5:34 pm #

    Juergen Teller and Terry Richardson are two top pro photographers who have been shooting snapshots since the 1990s. Their work has graced the covers of W, Harpers Bazaar, Rolling Stone and various Vogue editions.They have snapshoted many ads for luxery brands such as Marc Jacobs and Belvedere Vodka.

    The ubiquitousness of cameras has changed the perception of photos for the average person. Regulat folks, are taking lotsa pix with their P&S or Smart Phone. Unlike Serious Amatuers, who use DSLRs, they are not put-off by snapshots.

  8. Jim August 23, 2012 at 7:06 pm #

    Methinks that most of these shots are badly out of focus..Methinks they stink.

  9. Sergiu August 25, 2012 at 5:07 am #

    It”s also probably the most authentic form of photography now, in the age of the vital role of post-processing.

    I forgot to say that I am glad I found this site because I was able to learn new things about e-cigs. I thank God I found e-cigarettes, because I tried to quit so many times and I was headed for some major lung problems.. I have a question..I smoke e-cigs alot….can you harm yourself from over smoking them? I’m sure I will cut down, but its hard to tell when you have had enough drags to equal a cigarette. A regular cigarette burns down and your know your finished…I wish someone would invent a warning signal to let you know you had enough or equal to one regular smoke.

    I do love the way you have presented this particular situation plus it does indeed provide me personally some fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, coming from everything that I have observed, I just simply hope as other commentary pile on that folks remain on issue and in no way get started on a soap box involving the news du jour. Yet, thank you for this superb point and though I do not necessarily agree with it in totality, I regard the perspective.

  36. Chase Hadden May 10, 2014 at 12:57 pm #

    Most of the Reds believe that the King ordered the military to kill them. Whether he is the one who ordered’ or not, I do not know. But what I know is that he remained silent despite realising that his army was out killing his own people, yet he did nothing to stop them despite the fact that it is his duty to stop. Thus his silence, or his acquiescence to the killing (if you want to put it that way) has shamed the Monarchy beyond repair. My mum used to love the King very much. Up until last year she hung the pictures of the King and Queen on the wall. After all these events, however, she threw those pictures in a bin.

You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    johnfernquest: “That they’ve learned to **not kill** people in certain contexts is noteworthy and praiseworthy.” When they learn not to kill civilians in contexts such as Tak Bai maybe then they deserve some praise. To praise them for at the moment not ” hav[ing] thrown a monkey wrench in the works but they didn’t” seems giving them way, way too much credit. Historically, they are unworthy of praise or respect. Presently, one act of (presumed) good judgment hardly constitutes an historical watershed.

    Colum Graham #54:”What was the original point of his post? For me, it still remains valid.”If you are refering to his leading post, that seems to be about reinforcing his strong belief, there is a “conspiracy” taking place, but some people are not buying into it.He then continued on with some fairly emotional and not very factual rants, in defence of his theories.I am not about point scoring. I am jst asking for some objectivity and maybe some proof, that things are, or are not, as Jim claims.It is sad, this whole mess is fast bringing Thailand down to the level of a “failed state”.But, it is not going to get better, if people like Jim (who by his occupation, certainly has more power ,than someone like me) use flimsy heresay as reality.Isn’t that after all, part of what is wrong in this country, where the mass media are either lazy, ill-informed, or just playing a certain line, fed to them by their various patrons?

    Together with almost everything that seems to be developing throughout this subject matter, all your points of view happen to be very radical. Nevertheless, I appologize, because I do not subscribe to your whole suggestion, all be it exciting none the less. It appears to us that your commentary are actually not completely rationalized and in fact you are your self not entirely certain of your point. In any case I did appreciate looking at it.

    In this great design of things you’ll receive an A just for hard work. Exactly where you confused us ended up being on your details. As it is said, the devil is in the details… And it could not be much more accurate at this point. Having said that, let me tell you precisely what did work. The text is quite engaging which is probably why I am taking the effort to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, whilst I can notice the leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am not really sure of exactly how you appear to unite the ideas that produce the actual conclusion. For the moment I will subscribe to your point however hope in the future you link your dots better.

Your article really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this specific topic goes. Nonetheless there is actually 1 position I am not too cozy with so while I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual central idea of the issue, let me observe what the rest of your visitors have to point out.Nicely done.
