Ok i was looking at my friends wedding photos and MOST of them are slanted, not a little A LOT…. WTH??? i didn’t want to use her photos encase she sees them i don’t want her to feel like im talking bad about her photos , but i myself was looking for photographers and MOST of their albums are all like this…am i missing something WHY are they doing photos like this…it wouldn’t be to bad if they are all for scrapbook (you can turn them or cut them) the “artsy feel” isnt cutting it for me… what about you…how do these photos sit with you?

I think some of them are okay, all of them like that would be a little much. Sometimes it allows you to frame the picture better. Sometimes it’s a more flattering angle for the shot in question.
If you don’t like that style, be sure to mention it to your photographer.

@AndysCraftsNmore: I like them. Other than the last one, but that’s because I don’t like the focus on the flower with the blurry background. (Normally it works for me, but this one doesn’t for some reason.)
All of them slanted would be annoying. (Group shots especially, ha.) But sometimes, throwing an angle in can turn a boring photo into a WOW one.
Just make sure you talk to your photographer if you don’t want those.

i mean like one here and there, if it makes the dress in the full shot or whatnot..yeah cool but 90% of her”bride/groom” shots were all like that and about 70% of the wedding party and family…. i wouldnt mide if it was an upclose, face or something but …and these were nicer photos then the ones my friend had and ones ive seen from some photographers

We call it the Batman School of Photography. Or the Dutch Tilt. It’s popular with new photographers who think it adds excitement. It rarely does haha

@AndysCraftsNmore: 9 times out of 10 you will see this with newer photographers who use the Dutch angle to make an uninteresting photo more interesting. In reality they make it incredibly difficult to look at and damn near impossible to frame or fit in an album. This in all of a photographers photos is a newbie red flag.

@mariematt: Thank you for informing me of the name of the slanted photos…i will make sure to tell my photographer i do NOT like the “Dutch Tilt” i Googled more images under “Dutch Tilt” and in fact that is what it is, i mean if it makes the image fit yes but lord some of them are just god awful…

I hear you on this….I’ve been looking at photographers and I see this a lot. I’m like…wtf….can you not hold the camera straight!? I don’t like it either (except, like you said, in a few choice shots where it actually works).

Like others it’s called a dutch tilt or russian angle. I like it about as much as I like colorized images – which is zero – I actually despise the look and it’s often used because the photographer isn’t skilled enough to make a ‘dynamic’ photo otherwise.
