Professional photographer Joe Klamar recently had the opportunity to photograph some of America's Olympic Athletes competing at this year's 2012 Olympics and the response from the photography community has been less than supportive.
Basically, it seems that the photographs were taken in a rush and without Photoshop or any further preparation which, in turn, seems to make the athletes appear awkward and uncomfortable. The feedback ranges utter disgust to some showing support for the photographer because he displays the olympic stars in a natural light -- in my opinion, in a more realistic manner.
No matter how you look at the photographs, one thing is for sure: Joe Klamar has gone viral and people are starting to notice his work and his name is out there.
