Here's my 2 cents. I think it will be the biggest challenge of all to a photographer to shoot something he/she is naturally resistant to. In this case, the idea of fat.
Anybody can shoot a portrait, and isn't a great portrait defined (by a majority) as the personality of the person brought out together with the physical attributes in the picture?
I guess if I'm naturally resistant to shooting fat people, and I managed to shoot a great portrait out of someone who is fat, I would have conquered another level where my skills are concerned already.
err, am I making sense here?

Wow, why would Ejun ask such a question?
HEADLINE NEWS: PHOTOGRAPHER WITH OBSESSION FOR FAT WOMEN?
it's also because of something i wrote in THIS... that i feel i oughta ask the honest opinion.... IS LINGERIE and SWIMSUIT overated... Comeon!... lingerie was invented! and swimwears arent always so skimpy... so my question..... why cant we organise FAT people donning swimwear.... If the objective is REALLy to push your creative limit... (as mentioned) that will be a more reasonable thing to do... haha
Hey i've done that b4 but nv posted pics of the model online haghahaha wouldn't say she was fat la but more like chubby... I feel it's all part of how you look at it la.. but how fat is FAT? Queen Latifa is fat but she's hot.. some ppl say Tyra Banks is fat but she's hot too! So how fat is FAT then?
And honestly.. i'm starting to think organisers are doing it because of POPULAR REQUEST..
whereas workshop organisers can use anyone because the mentality is to LEARN....
so why dont all the organisers become workshop organisers instead?
"excuse me.... you are not skinny, dont fit lingerie shoots..."
"excuse me.... you are plus-size, dont fit lingerie shoots..."
"excuse me.... you are fat, dont fit lingerie shoots..."
the last one gets the point across real QUICK....
"Your MAMA so Plus-Sized... when she jump for Joyyyy.................."
If you are organising, I will be the first to sign up!!!!
