Friday Faces 17 – Has to be a Woman on International Women’s Day
Today, 8th March is International Women’s Day and you can find out more about that here so today’s photo just had to be of a woman; a model as it happens so not a particularly good role model ( no pun intended!) for young girls in my opinion..
Objectifying women and making them look entirely artificial isn’t my idea of a good idea !
This is the very first studio type photograph I have ever done and it was taken at the Focus on Imaging Exhibition at the NEC on Weds. There were lots of people around and no time to prepare as you can imagine so I was quite pleased with the result. There will be more to come.
I was surprised to see quite a few scantily clad women at the Exhibition, there to act as models for the presenters to photograph, talking the crowd through lighting, photoshopping etc. Not a scantily clad man in sight… Harumph!! I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised as this was gadget man’s dream place.. Sexism is alive and well in the world of photography it seems!
