ANTM Themed Shoot Smackdown, Intermission
(We're still taking votes for Round 1!)
It's probably not the best idea in the world to call an intermission before we're even halfway through a smackdown, but this blog has to do what this blog has to do.
Let's look at some group shots now . . .
Group shots are tough. A model who really gets the concept might find herself with partners who struggle with it, and so no matter how strong she is individually, she will not produce a strong photo. But when everyone is standing out, there is also the danger of getting lost in the background. It's a little like a competition--a microcosm of ANTM itself (and perhaps the modeling industry in general). Here we have two very different group pictures: one in which the models are elaborately costumed as Venetian courtesans and another in which they are wearing mostly mud.
Which one gets your vote?
