Just a hobby shooter who enjoys the feedback and discussion about shooting.

So I get this note message on DA from some guy in Germany.  I gleefully informs me that he had used the "Follow" function to follow my posts for a while.  But then it becomes a curt comment saying he stopped following me because my images were "generic".

I've had criticism in life before... hell at my age it comes almost daily. ... (ever not replied to an update for an Apple product?)   Yet I did wonder why.   I've shot with dozens of wonderful women, both professional models and friends.   I've shot with blonds, brunettes, red heads and some colors that defy nature.   I've shot with Asians, African Americans, a sweet Irish girl, and of course Anglo-Americans.   I've shot with teenagers (strictly clothed!!)  young college women all the way through to a gorgeous 50 year old.   Images range from studio work, hotels, rental homes, beaches, boats, back yards and state parks in about six states. ... but he said my shooting was generic.

I decided to find out what he meant.   If he was a noted photographer with experience that I could learn from, I'd open a dialogue that might lead me to be a better photographer.   If it was criticism from a talented shooter, I'd probably follow him and see what he was talking about.   So I jumped over to his profile page, only to find that he had no avatar, no photos posted, no journals, no drawings, no cartoons, no posts whatsoever.  The only thing this guy had was a favorites section where he had collected nude and erotic images from hundreds of photographers on DA.   

Don't get me wrong. ... I don't mind people watching and image collecting.  Hell, it's obvious that a lot of perverts spend their afternoons jacking off to pics they've enjoyed on DA.... not exactly a secret.   But a guy who has contributed nothing to the community (of art/lit/poetry) should keep his opinions to himself.   

My reply was pretty basic.... Hey, if you don't have any images posted then I truly don't care what you think.  ... His reply was comical.   He then goes on to tell me that I was "trolling" him.   So he followed me.  He messaged me.  He called my work 'generic'. ... yet, I'm trolling him?

I can now assume his curt, brief original message was short because he was searching for pussy shots and was typing with one hand......   He stopped following me and I truly could care less.

Defiantly nothing "generic" in your gallery of posted work.  It is a wonderful mixture of well planned images and concepts.

Very kind of you Shadows-of-Radiance I've enjoyed learning new methods and then going out to try them with some wonderful women I've met along the way.   Looks like you've had the pleasure of shooting Pepper too.   Some of our shooting was designed, planned and attempted.... other times it was blind luck.   Either way, it's all been fun.   I enjoyed your gallery as well.   Lots of interesting and lovely women you've shot.
