the anti poster holding is becoming as tiresome as the poster holding itself...
In Soviet Russia, poster hold you!
Yo dawg, well you know the rest.
While the whole hype of presenting posters this way on the web became ridiculous, it's not a bad idea... Photos usually work better for presenting print work on computer displays, than just spitting out a JPEG of it.
What are the best ways of showing off a poster on the web, now that the holding thing is taboo among designers?
As much as we designers hate this, I'm left wondering what the clients actually think. I mean, If the client loves it and uses your services who cares what other designers think? (are you stroking your own ego or running a business?)
I believe holding a poster with the designer including on the photo is a great example of "ego stroking" as you call it. Is a way to show the face that is usually unknown and connect it to the work.
I have seen specific cases where the face was visible and the poster was not a poster, but a "letter size" page and because of the open shot needed to capture the designer's face, the actual work took a very small place in the composition..
