    Professional pictures of feet? What ....REALLY?

    Ok first I hope I don't offend anyone who is a photographer. So I was on facebook and was on one of my group pages and this photographer was announcing a special...for only $200 you could have a lasting picture done by a professional of your feet???? Are you kidding? I have a hard enough time paying for pictures when they are of my face but why?? why?? would someone pay that much money for a picture of feet...oh and you could have up to 6 pairs of feet in the photo! Just thought I'd see if I'm the only one who can't grasp this and please if you get it and would pay that I would love to know why???
    I get that flip flop pics are cute but trust me know one wants to walk into your house and see a 11x14 picture of your feet!!
    Thanks!!

    Side note: no I did not comment because good manners tell me not to insult someones business but I did feel the need to rush here and get opinions.

    Maybe the photographer was just trying to generate attention/publicity without having to give too much away, knowing not many people would take her up on it...
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    there actually are people who model feet. maybe she was looking for someone like that. I would rather spend my money on pics of the grandkids tho. Just my opinion.

    I got a Chriatmas card one year of the feet of a family of six!! I had a hard time with my reaction to this...still think it was totally weird.

    There are a surprising number of foot fanatics (fetishers) out there who might really get off on this idea, but it sure seems ratheer weird to me! Altho' I must admit, I once saw a photo of a DH/DW couple whom I enjoy that was hanging in the privacy of their bedroom, taken on the beach in the islands somewhere, taken from the back of them holding cocktails and looking into the sunset....except they were completely naked in all their middle-aged glory! It was actually rather sweet and cute. And private in their bedroom (where I had been sent to use the bathroom). I have often wondered who took it!

    I think there's a photographer out there somewhere with a major foot fetish.
    If no one ever experimented we'd all still be making 4 patches.

    My DIL has taken photos of my grandchildren's feet, like all together, and it turned out cute!! Not that she would pay a photographer a sitting fee to do it!!

    I can understand a "foot model" having professional shots done. Someone has to do it for advertising in salons, shoes/sandals, etc.

    My daughter in law lined up the 3 grandkids and wrote "We lov u" on the bottom of their feet and took a picture and put it onto the card they sent hubby for Father's Day. Big feet, medium feet, and tiny feet. We enjoyed it.

    After Bunion surgery on both feet, NO, I would not pay any amount to have photo's of my feet.
    On another note, I went to a wedding once where the photographer took a photo of the bridesmaids flowers and
    the girls form the neck down. I called it the "Boob shot", because it seemed as though that was the "focus" of the photo. Another thing I don't think I would want to emphasize, if you know what I mean.

    Happy Quilting,

    The photographer that did our engagement pics did the feet picture, too. I thought it was kinda cool and now every time I look at it, a particular scripture comes to mind:

    Romans 10:14-15 (ESV)

    14 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him (A)of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? 15 And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”

    Diebetes runs in my family. My sister didn't have a foot to stand on when she passed. I think I should have a pic taken of mine just incase I have to have them removed.

    Well my feet no but feet of little kids like in the sand or something too cute. My daughter is one who is very proud of her feet she actually has pretty feet and takes very good care of them . At one time she could have earned a lot of money....

    One look at my feet and anyone who had a "thing" for them would be put off for life Must admit hands fascinate me, we have a beautiful pic of our hands on our wedding day...done in black and white...it is really well done.

    When I took photography in college we had to learn to take artistic pictures of all sorts of unusual subjects. Feet was a classic subject. In class it is not considered a fetish, but a means of communicating all sorts of things. You can communicate love, anger, beauty, etc. with a composition of feet. They are actually very expressive. Very old feet and very young feet are the best to photograph since they are the most interesting. You are conveying emotions and ideas, not representations of actual people. This is a totally different type of photograph than a portrait.These art photographs are very hard to do, and when they are well done usually win awards in photography shows.
