Inexplicable taste or my fragile ego?
1

I shot prom photos for friends and family over the weekend. I’m not expecting a Pulitzer or anything, but they were pretty darn good. Well composed, well lit, in focus, eyes open, nice bokah, etc. However, when “the kids” posted to social media they invariably ignored my shots and chose “dad snapshots”; including shots that were blurry, out of focus, blown out, underexposed, harsh shadows across the face, etc.

I know the whole arty 70’s look (washed out, color streaked, etc.) is trendy, but that’s not what this was, just an apparent preference for mediocre to bad.

Now, is this just my fragile ego talking? Am I hopelessly out of touch? Is anyone else experiencing this?
