  • Sexy!

    by Ellenboughn | 13th of April, 2007

    Youth and sex have forever been used to promote and sell products and services. And sexy pixs are especially important to the calendar sector that isn't dominated by kittens (the more feline type) and gardens. I'm not an expert on what is sexy; that is gender specific and... More

  • Not Just a Pretty Face

    by Ellenboughn | 9th of March, 2007

    Facial expressions send strong messages about what an image is trying to say...what the image is about. Unfortunately, a model's lack of expression can sometimes cause the photo to say next to nothing. One expression to avoid is the pouty-pouty runway model blank look that... More
