- Pyramid Schemes a.k.a. Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) products and their pushers. HOLY CRAP! Please shut up! I am so tired of hearing about all of your ENERGY! and MONEY MAKING! and WEIGHT LOSS! and PRODUCTS!! Gag. Me. It wasn't so bad before but now it seems like EVERYBODY is selling something on Facebook! (In this scenerio, I'm only referring to those companies that are typically in business for just a few years with TONS OF MONEY MAKING OPPORTUNITIES! and then something happens, they fall of the map (market) and reinvent themselves by tweaking their product and RELEASING! it all over again but under a new cool name! AHHHHHHHH! Can you tell how irritated I am?? If not, let me assure you, I am irritated. I know...why don't I delete those people? Because I still like them when they aren't selling something, I feel bad that they got sucked in and unfortunately, the likelihood of this really being a sustainable opportunity is slim to none especially when you consider "99% of sales representatives in these companies suffer significant financial losses."
- Are there any photographers these days who don't over do the eye brightening/enhancing? Yes, but not very many! Don't get me wrong, some is ok. Some is appropriate, but when it looks like the poor subject has alien, crystal clear eyes it's not pretty or natural. Just my opinion though and a current irritation. Honestly, I feel bad for the subject...their eyes will never be that way without hardcore editing. Which is why I think if I ever do go back to taking pictures for more than a hobby (not likely), I would prefer to use natural light and little to no harsh edits. I can see my business card now...."Because you're perfect without alien eyes and whiter than bright, blinding teeth." Eh, just an idea with a smidgen of sarcasm plus it's probably too many characters. The 'no harsh edits' piece is pretty convenient for me too...I loathe editing.
