Iím always giving advice to models that the photos that show the T&A are the ones in their portfolios that is going to give them the most views, weíve seen it here on GG too, forum posts that have scantily clad models tend to do that too. Itís a common trend, thread or whatever you want to call it.

But here recently, Iím amazed, one of my photos has made ď40 comments and 24 listsĒ in so fast of time, Iím shocked that itís bucking the trend because there is no ďT&AĒ visible, itís a silhouette. Perhaps itís the best photo Iíve ever taken and youíre not going to see T&A in it, itís my daughter on her honeymoon with her husbandódonít go there, I can see your thoughts!

Perhaps there is hope that there are other folks on some of these model/photographer sites besides those fresh in puberty young boys that in the pre-Internet generation got kicks their kicks out of Sears & Roebuck catalogs. Just my thoughts, wishing everyone the best and a great weekend! rg sends!

Rolando, you might wish to edit your post so that your link points to the proper location. You need to change the 10 (10th month) to an 8 (8th month).

It is definitely true that T&A will get you more views, comments, or attention, but let's face it, a great image is a great image.

Often the drama of the unknown or unseen creates a tension that forces people to want to see more. Sadly the images that have more skin will always have more comments/ views. In marketing SEX SELLS. Due to my day jobs conservatism I will not post nude images online. I will however try to keep getting better.

I'm seeing similar things with my MM. I have some pretty steamy photos up there and the one that is on more lists and has the most comments (10 lists, 21 comments) has no T&A. Just lips and fruit.

Click on the photo to see the larger version on MM..


It just goes to prove, Rolando, that for most people the concept is most important and can be quite magnetic. (Almost) anyone can just point a camera and take a photo, not just anyone can come up with a killer concept.

Cheers,

To get the lists, views and comments we all covet...T&A is the only way!

I actually don't post much of my T&A photos on ModelMayhem. I post those on my Flickr photostream.

Views, comments and lists are easy if your images are not total crap, but you have to spend a LOT of time on the site and post Announcements and "Shout" a lot that you have new images up and will return comments. Seems to work great for many people.

A trend? Possibly.

An anomaly? More than likely.

But it is a killer shot!
