The thing about that Lucky magazine cover with Kerry Washington is:
What Kerry is trying to say is:
Shut. It. Down.
I’m not saying it’s flattering, but I think it’s the lighting more so than photoshop.
I think it’s more that they made it appear as if her teeth are trying to go full xenomorph off the page.
In what world is THAT the best photo they could come up with?!?!
Oh dear god what is that
Damn, you, Lucky. How am I supposed to fap to that?!?!
“Do we need to put those secret dentures back in?”
“No, no. It’s perfect, have her painfully torque those shoulders more. MORE.”
“Um…Sir…You know this is the cover shoot for Lucky, right?”
“The magazine. About shopping.”
“When are we shooting the PSA about turning into a donkey-human abomination on Pleasure Island?”
“That was a cocaine-induced fever dream you had, sir.”
“Fuck it. I like this direction either way.”
My brain read this in the voices of Major Monogram and Carl. It feels right somehow.
I think a good universal rule for photos would be back up a bit
Unless it’s the cover of Time.
