Pictures can say a lot. They can evoke meaning, a feeling, a story, and even…nothing at all. I browse Flickr a lot. I browse the blogs quite a bit as well and I try to find different and unique styles that really give the items a pop or try to tell a story. I guess – when I’m looking at something, I don’t look at the face that often. Rarely does a person’s face change: unless they’ve changed hair color, eyes, or skin tone. I’ve noticed though an ongoing trend that keeps me from wanting to like a pretty decent picture. At first I didn’t realize what I was noticing, then it hit me. It’s the face. I see too much…face.
Now don’t get me wrong – most of the skins on the grid are absolutely gorgeous. They truly are. But if you’re not doing a skin post or are showing…skin (oh la la for sexy naked rawrness) and you’re showing off a new dress, or shoes, or a jewelry set that is a must have, then why am I seeing your face up close and personal? All I can think of is the camera angle of taking self-portraits for MySpace and Facebook. Camera up. Cock hip. Give duckface. Click.
Show me what you are wearing. Show me that gorgeous frock you are giving thumbs up too. Or those shoes that I must get. This is marketing people.
I’m not buying your face.
