My Left Butt

In this year's The Photographer's Market, one of the magazines, Left Behind, has this quote:

"Left Behind desperately needs cover art featuring the left buttock; both color and b/w (model releases required) buys 10 photos from freelancers/issue.
Subject line says - Quarterly literary magazine of poetry, short stories..etc.
Someone tell me what it's like.....I'm too scared to click it.

Dutch photographer Pieter Wisse posts five active photographers a week to his blog 500 Photographers. I check it daily and have been taking notes since it began. He includes all disciplines of photography, from photojournalism to the world of fashion.

Damn, that's a big softbox !!

Nothing more pathetic than a beautiful girl in a photo and I can't take my eyes off the 10-ft softbox in the background.
You can see more of the softbox (and Jennifer) in frame 6 and 7.
