Thread: Models

  1. #1

    Default Models

    i realised that the models most Csers shoot lack of sth. the X factor.
    i see that most models do have quite perfect features. complexion is like completely flawless,
    long hair, slim with make up. but most just lack of that X-factor.
    alright, im gonna get lotsa bombardments haha, but yeah this is what i think so.

    Sometimes the lack of "X-factor" may not be the fault of the models, but the fault of photographers who chose to photogrph them that way.

    maybe someone would like to define "X-factor"?

    and also, is it subjective?

    haha thats just my personal perspective, do i necessarily need to show images of models who has the X-factor? besides, i think i have someone who agrees with me.

    it's just a comment that i strongly believes in which i don't think that i have to show one to prove that whatever statement i've said is wrong. like i said, it's something that i "think" and sees it. i've seen some nice ones like the one lil_princess shot. the one with the tilted frame.

    Yep, Dr Chong. I agree with u that photogs are the main culprits of making a model look very bad sometimes.

    er.. i know it's not on topic, but lil_princess IS the model, that photo wasn't shot by her.

    ok on topic now, well i guess u're just stating an opinion, nothing wrong with that (whether or not someone has agreed with u is beside the point), but probably one that does generate challenges (or as u call it, "bombardment") and confusion (wat is X-factor anyway?)

    so.. was that the aim? to generate challenge and confusion (among other things)?

    eheh anywayz, happy shooting always.

    take both hands to clap.

    beautiful model = better shooting opportunity but not necessary= good pictures

    Even when shooting with beautiful model, one must be able to seize the opportunity and capitalise on the beauty of the person. I sure some of you have seen ulgy pictures of models who are actually very beautiful.

    BUT.. there are some case of photographers i.e Paolo roversi who uses ulgy models at time but still make beautiful images.

    Bottomline. it's good to know what you want to acheive before selecting which models to use. And use it to the best of your knowledge or else it's a compromised piece of work.

    haha nah, it is just a opinion thats coming out from me, didnt mean to create any form of confusion. hmm perhaps just a challenge to photographers to explore more field.

    have u watched any of steven spielberg's movie? jurassic park and war of the world.
    could u spot the X-factor of these two movies? perhaps i could help u abit. for jurassic park 2, what inspired steven spielberg is the part when the woman fell on the glass on the trailer and it started to crack and then the trailer just went passed crashing down them? and war of the world would be the part when the "tentacles eye" of the "tripod" going into basement of the house searching for any signs of humans. these are the X-factors which Steven Spielberg visualises and he directed the movies based on such X-factors.

    it's like the determining factor of the outcome of the movie. so i would agree that it comes the same for model shoots. the X-factor would be what determines the feel of the picture. personally, i think that so far the photographer i admire most would be burmotic. his pictures are raw and gives u that natural feel.

    i've been a Cser for months and pictures i've seen too much are the "babes" of whatever roadshows and man, they probably look too off or they all look the same.
    hahaha seriously guys, pls do not take this too personally.

    like what MelissaFaith says "to each his own". im just bringing out my pt of view and would like to hear the views of others. Correct me if i've said anything that i've offended anyone.

    Np. Or at least u haven't offended me. Cos i tend to agree what u mean by the lack of x-factor and just having a pretty face.

    Anyway, I'm just wondering why is this thread in the photo gallery in the first place?
    Shouldnt it be somewhere like in Kopitiam, where you guys can discuss, or 'talk c**k, sing song'?
    Have you read IT???

    just my little input.

    for me, x-factor is ...
    the moment you look at the pic, you feel like wanting to know more about the model,
    or the subject.

    It is because something unexplainable (that's why the term X-factor)
    in the pic is somehow 'talking' to you, trying to get you involved with
    the pic / model.
    It's not just a passive "look at the pic, compliment it and forget about it" .

    just my view
