"Unremarkable" was probably a poor choice of words.
I meant to convey the fact that it wasn't the images themselves that brought rise to the "remarks" that concern you, but rather some of the ideas and words and conversation in the posts, especially when considered in light of the situation you posed at least one of the models in.
And I do have some ideas of the difficulties involved in what you shot - I have studio lights that I use from time to time that are probably about the same age as you are - but the sort of work that appeals to you is probably different than most of the work I like to do.
And I certainly would be wary if I were you about using Donald Trump as an arbiter about the nature of valuable advice .
haha, I liked the trump comment, really good point, though, he does have billions.. so... lol
