So I bought one of the local fashion mags last month, the November 2011 issue of Cleo, and it came with a little booklet, the new catalogue from local shoe brand Vincci. Now, as you all know I'm kind of a shoe freak, so I immediately grabbed it and flipped through..
Unfortunately, it wasnt the shoes that caught my eye. Much to my surprise, good photos were ruined by a small detail that none of the editing team seemed to notice: unsightly wrinkles in the skin-coloured tights of the model!
Some were not so bad, like this one is barely anything:But then it gets worse:And the worst one is definitely this one:Out of the 9 images that featured the model (excluding the covers), 4 were crinkled! As an ad campaign, I would've thought small details like this would be important, it's not hard to smoothen out such a minor but distracting thing using photoshop! Not impressed Vincci, not impressed at all..
What do you think? Do you think it's a big deal? Should it have been dealt with before going into print? Or do you think it's fine to leave the wrinkles on the finished photo? Let me know! =)
