I've been getting back into photography after many many years. And, I have read a few psots and articles on various topics with regard to taking pictures of women. I said it like that because it covers all the bases, fashion, glamour, fashmour, portrait, whatever. I looked at the Maxim website last night, played a few Spinal Tap vids, and looked at the girly pics. In my return to the camera, I had a lot to learn, and I spent a lot of time on DPreview. Many were helpful, above all, Chuck Gardner. I've been getting up to speed, refreshing my shooting skills and I've noticed that what passes for a good photo has changed since I last shot a pretty face.
Some have talked about the fall of Playboy and the rise of Lad mags like Maxim and such, and the switch back to glamour from fashion. The ringflash style seems to still hang around, as do moody B&W's. I've always liked the Playboy style of the 80's. Not every photo or girl, but, I think the 80's was Playboy's golden years.
So, I'm courious as what you all think the futures holds for photography and the style/s that will be popular. which reminds me, I have to get my Gary Bernstien (sp?) book back for my friend. Not that his style is coming back, but it is still a good book.
