For those who like gear porn check out Vincent LaForet's latest blog post.

Its about his latest video/photo shoot with 1D IV's and a whole lot of other professional gear (lots of video stuff)

I'm definitely going to work towards getting into this poo poo right here.

So, I was eating in a chinese restaurant yesterday and couldn't help but overhear the guy in the next booth talking about how he was looking for a photography assistant. Fortunately, I didn't interject and offer my services like my initial reaction was.

Continuing to eavesdrop he sounded like a huuuuge douche. Apparently his ideal assistant (he was describing it to his dinner companion) is to be young (16 years old was perfect apparently), sexy, willing to carry heavy things, and female.

Don't worry, he'll wind up with 24, acne-ridden, 300 lbs, weak, and male.

I am just disappointed that an apparently successful fashion photographer had to resort to hiring 16 year old girls as assistants to perv on.

To be fair, most successful fashion models have a tendency to look like a bag of bones with all the sexual appeal of a coatrack.


But to drift back to seriousness, I've always wondered about the disconnect between what is considered 'attractive' in the fashion world, compared the the glamour world.

Just think of the difference between the mindset of fashion designers and the editors of playboy, maxim etc.

I think it's primarily because it's what makes the clothes look best (thinner, taller frames), and fashion people tend to like more unique and striking faces rather than the same old same old. Also, a lot of the models look amazingly normal or even uglyish without all the intensive hair and makeup and clothes.

Just a place for discussion and pics would be good. I'm pretty sure we could sustain a thread without it disappearing too quickly.

Your stuff is super good, and it'd be definitely interesting to hear more about your perspective in how you shoot, and what you look to shoot when taking fashion photographs.

Also, I took some pics at London's fashion week and want a place to post them!

You can get to a reasonable place, but you really do have to ignore what he actually says, including his conclusion that if you manipulate lighting you can't call it art. If he had said, you can't call it a photo, or "it's not reporting" or "it's not accurate" but "it's not art?"

Yeah it seems like he's maybe gone a bit overboard with it-- and was probably choosing words very poorly.

That's the point though, it's about the clothes not the model or sex. The setting, styling, and model are just props that tell a story about the garments.

All photojournalists have weird inconsistent absolutes about what is/isn't a photo or is/isn't manipulation. I understand it's part of doing their job, so when they say those things out loud I just pretend I didn't hear it

I thought the second row was a bit off toward the middle, but I couldn't quite decide which was which. Documentation on my work monitors says "92% color gamut." I think I have an idea of where in the spectrum that remaining 8% is.



Here's something that this reminded me of, from Feb 2010 Scientific American

I see the "impossible" greenish red when the two converge, how about you guys?
