Playboy is so gay in a straight way.
looks good to me every chick i've banged looks like that
whats the problem?
would still hit
Well yeah! Because in real life she doesn't look like a fucking weird jaw alien with overdone eyes and an artificially lengthened neck.
Her jaw looks like that because of the way her hair is hitting it
Negative, I'm talking about chin to hair.
Perhaps it's just me.
I'd hit both of them.
a girl I know was in Playboy for Girls of the ACC a few years ago.. she was airbrushed so much that I didn't even recognize her.
does anyone here really think that ANY photo in ANY mag. hasn't been edited by at least 3 different photoshop professionals?
it was Girls of the ACC and the photoshoppers made all of them look 30
well, I can't vouch for their quality, but for every 'glamour' cover, the shot hits at least 3 different photoshop pro's desks who edit the balls out of it.
In the class I had that taught this stuff, one major example we had was a 38 layer image of eva longoria that literally touched EVERY INCH of her body.
It was insane.
I think shopping to that extent is just as bad as what Dave Hill does and the desire for "perfect" doesn't really come from regular guys. Of all the guys I've talked to none have said they like the heavy airbrushed look, sure, remove pimples around the coose, but I like a girl to actually have knees.
I agree with what you're saying, but apparently that is not acceptable to the general public.
for what it's worth, there were layers dedicated to REMOVING MUSCLE TONE from Eva because she was too physically fit and had things like veins and muscles...
From what i've seen after taking this class and looking at magazine covers, this is standard practice.
knees need not apply.
I tend not to look at playboy, I know how fake it is now w/ photoshop etc. But I would still hit it also lol.
That is the same girl, right?
And what is "Met"?
Yeah, it is.
Met is Met-Art, it's a porn site with mostly softcore photo sets of skinny euro chicks. Welcome to the internet.
I think it could just be artificial expectations, like high fashion models, most guys don't actually think they're hot, but the expectation, created over time by a minority of important people who prefer them, creates their necessity. I think at some point some douchebag took a normal retouching session too far and then everyone started doing it. People went ape over the photo of Carmen Electra without makeup and heavy retouching.
I can imagine some business meeting at Playboy where out of touch old guys in suits, or worse, college created marketing noobs in abercrombie and fitch, sit around talking about how guys like flawless women and how the presence of a knee in the last issue was an outrage...
WOULD hit either way
and just for the record, this shit was done long before digital. Brooks even had a class on how to touch up a photo on the negative with a pin
Added to your list, along with Dave Hill.
In the May/June '08 issue of PICTURE, Arny Freytag did an interview. He said that they NEVER do any photo shopping of the images. And they are all shot as is.
