On article PIX 2015: Brian Ach and getting the right shot (41 comments in total)
In reply to:

BigOne: "In short, he knows how to get the shot."

He DOESN'T. He's as commonplace and unimaginative as they come.

1. Prince. Shots from below has been used and abused since 1960s. See Jimmy Hendricks photos. Everyone and his cousin has done that with Brian May, Jimmy Page, The Edge and, OF COURSE, Yngwie Malmsteen.

2. G-Unit and 50Cent whoever they are. Just check RunDMC photos from their hayday. Van Hallen, Bon Jovi, any hair band of the 1980's - they were all photographed just like that. This is as "the right shot" as the tourists "supporting" the Tower of Pisa.

3. Taylor Swift. Seriously!? THAT is "the right shot"? A fake "sly squint", dreadful skin texture, horrendous colors and lighting.

4. 1983 Lamborghini LP500s. For one, that's Lamborghini Countach LP500S but that's DPR editing at its best. For two, tilting the horizon for "speed effect" was lame back in 1978. It still is.

The guy is just very old(-fashioned). His professional growth stopped in 1982. The big comeback this is not.

He had all day to get that grandpa shot and that's what he got? This video is a joke. Pictures don't match what he's trying to say. And Prince is the best guitar player ... ??? Another joke?

It was a lousy offer. Why wasn't it extended? Free publicity? The whole thing sucked.

Nikon T500? Is that the P500? It says P500 on the top of the camera.
