Letter to the editor: Slanted photography

Slanted photography

Received March 7

I have been a faithful subscriber to the Post Register for about 40 years.

Over the past four decades, I’ve appreciated numerous talented and credible reporters who have presented the news in an intelligent and balanced manner. It’s nice to read local and regional stories with little or no bias or a slant to them.

However, the same cannot be said of one of this newspaper’s photographers. Specifically, I’m referring to John Roark. He has a “slant” to his pictures, literally speaking, and it’s really annoying!

When I view his shots, they are all too often tilted to the left or to the right. I’m beginning to wonder if I’m becoming cross-eyed in my senior years or perhaps I’m high on root beer or coke (that is, Coca-Cola).

As a military photographer for over four years, I know and appreciate decent photographs. Never mind about the “effect” of slanted photography, which detracts from his pictures.

No doubt, John Roark has the potential of being a really fine lens man, that is, if he would just level his camera.
