    I would shoot anyone with x,y,z or any factor as long as the model fees is less than $10.

    While on the subject, I would like to mention that some of the models shoots arranged in CS, have models looking like the back of a truck and yet people actually paid $60 and above to snap them. Maybe it's the so-called X-Factor that I had failed to notice.

    the most intruiging and engaging faces are not the prettiest in my opinion

    Yeah??? But the ones I was referring to, should be paying us to shoot them and not vice versa. I personally think some of the guys at CS are really quite hard-up.

    Be careful what you say leh. There are models reading this photo forum.

    Sekali we get black listed, we may end up shooting the back of the real trucks :-)

    Have U heard of a Hokkien saying:

    "Boh Huu Hair Yar Hor"

    ("No fish prawn also good")

    "Boh Huu Hair Yar Hor"

    May I ask, what is the purpose of shooting?

    If for the purpose of shooting pretty faces/great figures, then the appropriate models.

    If for purpose of great x-factor, then chose the appropriate factors.

    I think short of being morons, most people can identify pretty faces with great figures. But how many can identify an "x-factor". If you see a so so face, can you see the "x-factor" there? If you can identify one with a great "x-factor", can you capture it?

    My sentiments exactly. Face not pretty, figure no good, unknown X-factor.... then why pay to shoot them? No wonder the managers of the so called models are all swarming to CS to make good money, charging something like $60 to $120 per head. Like chopping carrots.

    prefer models with pretty faces and great figure. so if the photos turn out bad at least there was great eye candy during the shoot. x factor? that's up to the photog to show in the photo.

    both i guess.
    i'm not choosy.
    its how i can bring out the features of the model that is important.
    there are technically challenging faces which demands that the photographer takes care in choosing the angle to shoot.

    1) is ok provided she is not fat.

    2) is ok provided her complexion is clear.

    so, it all depends on the degree of so-so-ness.

    i really gotta wonder if you are asking this question *sincerely* in the context of photography, or "pornography".
