    So I'm sitting here late at work, as always, and I have to take a shit... so I head to the mens room and sitting on the floor is a copy of the latest harpers bazaar, one of the office homo's must of left it in there... so I think cool, something to look at, check out the photo spreads and reverse engineer the lighting (I'm such a loser) So, the cover is of one of the olson whores, I mean twins. I'm flipping thru and I come to the spread shot by Peter Lindbergh. Out of maybe 10 shots, 8 of them were oof, or suffered from motion blur. :WTF: How can a publisher put crap like that in their rags?!? I guess it just goes to prove the point that it's not how good you really are, but how well you market your art...... Guess I need to stop working on honing my skills and concentrate more on marketing my current crappyness :hs:

    marketing > skill

    these aren't even photo mags though, they're fashion mags... I see guys on flickr that are head and shoulders above these guys but you don't see their work showcased in a national fashion mag.

    I think I could pull off those pictures. And that's not saying much.
