A set of portraits of American Olympians has generated negative feelings in the photography community because of an "amateur" and "shoddy" look that some think was intentional.

This is what a normal Olympic portrait looks like.
Here are some of Klamar's from the USOC shoot. Note the different lighting, offbeat poses and exposed sets:
