Vitruvius: What can you expect when Nokia had to fake the footage for the ad with a DSLR....

Makes you wonder how often they do this and don't get caught. Shouldn't this be false advertising, like Sketchers?

What an silly comment. All product adds are simulations they are there to better express what the product can do. You actually believe the adds on TV? Let me give you a reality check... ALL PRODUCT ADVERTISEMENTS ARE SIMULATIONS!!!!

art1sta: these Nokias have so many innovations and have such amazing hardware yet they make the mistake of not informing about prices and availability. I also dont understand why Nokia is excluding itself from android, I mean, if you make such great hardware why not use it to your advantage and exploit all the OSs that work and that are successful. It make no sense to me unless S Elop is a Microsoft plant and microsoft ends up buying Nokia on the cheap. (would not surprise me in the least)

with reagrds to the advert well its a childish mistake but surely we all know that adverts are just nice simulations of what really happens. Surely no one believes the adds on TV.

(Sasparilla) Thank you for the explanation. I thought as much with regards to windows being responsible for the lack of information on pricing and availability of the Nokias. I did not know that Nokia had signed such a stupid one sided agreement. Windows is letting other manufacturers use their OS. So why shouldnt Nokia use other OS? someone made a bad deal!

If indeed windows phone OS is delaying the Nokias Im affraid that they have lost the boat and Nokia goes down the drain. It also goes towards the theory that Elop is a microsoft plant. No idiot would sign away such a one sided deal unless they have an agenda. Nokia could have done what the other manufacturers are doing, using windows phone, android and their own OS. Im sure it would have survived if it had. As it stands Im not so sure anymore, real shame, sad day for Nokia fans.

I was looking forward to this but...in a nutshell....HORRIBLE.

Suave: The man was hired to produce a set of shots that would attract attention to the members of US Olympic Team. He did that job brilliantly.

I like the photos. I love all the whiny "I woulda done that better" responses.

I dont agree at all. I am not even looking at the people or why they are there im looking at the photographs and questioning why someone was allowed to make fun of these people

Roland Karlsson: Hmmmm .. just for the record. Can anyone point me to some sets of portrait photos of US athletes that you think are worthy to be called portraits of US athletes and that fulfils the requirement of being patriotic?

And I mean portraits. I am not talking about sports photos.

...all of the ones that were not taken by this guy!

Bunk599: There is a time and place for creativity....two instances where respect and tradition should receive higher priority are singing the national anthem and photographing the USA Olympic Team.
So much of photography is about the privilege of access.....this guy was given access and failed on all accounts. As others point out, aside from the disrespectful composition the quality of the photos is stunningly poor.
I suspect Klamar took a giant step backwards in his career and his access to famous subjects will be restricted...

CFynn's link points out the contrast with what was possible and illustrates a far more appropriate use of the athletes time.

To each his own, but my vote is two big thumbs way down.

Ok I agree with you somewhat but its irritating as hell that some pseudo intellectuals (im not talking about you) praise bad quality for the sake of sensationalism and then promote it like its a winner by saying (here I am criticizing you!) that these pieces are colectors works of art because they have a naif/bad-taste approach!!!! especially when disregarding the subject matter. why praise the BAD instead of promoting the excellence of these athletes... I am sure your correct that these pics will be sold for thouands, its sad though

I wrote this further down the thread but i am reposting this here.

Who says we want cliche photos and why should inovation or sensationalism mutually exclude QUALITY? I thinks its precisely the contrary. I am all for innovation and if it makes you think about a subject even better but honestly I cant see a dam thing in these photos, not even a thread of thought

art1sta: I wish people would get real and stop justifying crappy photos whether done on purpose or not. It may not be the photographers fault but theses photos are for sure different...and very BAD

If he wanted controversy or just was making a statement then do so but not with these people that deserve something better

On EXIF tracking services help find missing cameras article (77 comments in total)

am I the only one that finds this creepy. Anyone that can just about trace every picture you have posted online. Even if you only post family/holiday pics like myself, thats a mighty strong database of your life and your family.

I wonder if they can trace unlisted/protected galleries from the likes of flickr, smugmug etc
