Remember, everybody is somebody else's weirdo.

Isn't this type of "artsy" shot often a problem with the garment itself? I was taught early on to be suspicious of a pattern that can't be seen clearly in the photograph. It may be that the model was entirely the wrong size, but may just as often be a sleeve that didn't work or an ugly neckline that is being hidden by the photographer.

Ik hald fan dei.

I have learned that the resolution that you take the picture at makes a big difference in the printed quality. Go for the biggest size and highest pixel count picture you can at the actual time of photography and you should have no problem printing them.

My butterfly picture has been printed out at 5x7 size and it looks great. Of course the one on my blog has been reduced to be accepted by Photobucket and to be a reasonable on screen size, but the original is so large it cannot all be viewed at once on a computer screen.

I figured I would wade in on this one. I currently work in prepress and the publishing industry and I must say excuses abound in this line of work. The editor of the mag generaly only looks at proofs and if the proof system is not the acutal out put device (rip/plate setter) often the final out come is quite different from the proofs. This is not as it should be but when you are looking at over $100,000 for some proof systems...... The inital quality of the photos has to be considered also. Even the most adept digital manipulator with the best programs can only do so much (although it is amazing what can be done). So in all fairness the ball was droped many places (unless it was actual planned to look that way) First the photographers, then the composition department, then prepress, then the editor, then the pressmen (or press operators) and finaly shipping failed.

Now I know that different operations have different workflows and Interweave may not operate anything like the above scenerio however there are so many places in any pubishing operation to catch and correct issues that the mag should not have gone out (again unless it was intended to look like it did)

thats my two cents and it probably isnt even worth two cents but there ya go.....
