Ok , a bit of poo flinging :
Judy Caseley, the professional wildlife photographer
have over 100 photos published in coffee table books that are sold in Barnes and Nobles and Books a Million. I am telling you this as I have
won many awards for my photographs
Really , I can find no reference to any “ Judy Caseley “ cited as a photographer – or credited in the captions of any photograph I can find –
she is not listed on the “ past winners “ of any industry awards I can find
In short – zero evidence that she is indeed any kind of professional
The photograph was taken about five years ago on a hot summer day — in July, if Caseley had to guess — on Loop Road in Big Cypress National
Ok – ms “ professional photographer “ does not index her photographs ???
I am most certainly mot a professional – but I can reference all my own photographs by date , location , subject tags –
That a “ professional photographer “ does not even know when an image was taken … ape is speechless
Well actually – I am not speechless …. My response cannot be typed as it violates the ATS t&c in so many ways
So I will just leave it there
As for the photographs , we get an interesting caveat :
I also want to point out that we are looking at the photos from the newspaper’s website. These are not hi-res scans of the original photograph,
but lo-res, compressed images here.
Why are they not hi res …. Why can a so called “ professional photographer “ produce the hi res crops ???????
It is clamed that the photos were shot on film – [ see references to “ the original negative “ ]
So why are we talking about compression issues as , From a film negative you can enlarge prints to dizzying dimensions – with no loss of detail –
then scan the enlargement
There should not be any loss of resolution – if a real professional photographer had the inclination to create sharp enlargements from a film
But it would seem that ms Caseley , is lacking in the competence department :
If I can figure out how to post one here, I will do that.
A “ professional photographer “ cannot figure out how to upload a photo to the web ….. is ms Caseley fit to be left unsupervised ????????????
And my penultimate comment , guns or no guns ????????
Furthermore, it would be foolish to dress up in an animal costume in Big Cypress, one of the most popular hunting areas in South Florida.
“People out here carry guns,” said Shealy, who also dispels the costume theory.
But …. In another page :
Guns are not allowed in Everglades National Park. I am not going to search you but just letting you know.
So are guns banned???? … or is it a “ popular hunting venue “ ………… DOH !
And lastly :
to scan my negative and see if I have manipulated this photo. I have not manipulated this photo in any way.
holly red herring bat man
from what I have read / seen – no one has accused her of any negative tampering
the key charge is that it was a faked shot involving an accomplice in a suit
also , ms Caseley needs to actually address the issue of evidence that the subject of the pictures is indeed a cryptid …
because right now I see a lot of waffle …. And protestation that it could not be X , Y , or Z ….. but no direct evidence that it is a cryptid
All smoke and mirrors …………… to evade the issue ??
