This time it's not about fake pictures. Not about GPS info in pictures, although it's not a bad idea. Not everybody have the goods to take a picture in difficult to photo-shop backgrounds.
It's not bad to have too good to be real pictures. And that's not today's topic.
But it's better to have as many real things in it, other than "you".
Too many pictures seems to be taken straight from European and Asia porn magazines. That's true but it's not today's topic.
Have a real furniture. Sit on a real chair. Even if you are in a studio. Have a real plant.
Then it comes to the point that many pictures irritates me being out of location. You sell yourself in the West Coast and you take pictures in front of a brick wall? There's no bricks here. It's worse than fake pictures taken out from porn magazines without any backgrounds. I hate pretty girls in front of brick walls, just as many hate pretty girls stand in front of stucco. That's culture. I like bricks but I don't have it.
The other extreme is pictures taken on arrival, in cheap motels with cheap cell phones. It just shows that your cell phone is cheap. Or you really need the blur function without the blur software.
A once successful international site was successful because they can send photographers to your hotel to take very decent pictures. They had to move to overseas servers and keep some distance, as the photo service is too close to pimping.
It's better to take pictures in your home if you don't mind. Hotels will do. Studios? What for?
I was once on a model's weekly cam show. She was the only one I ever subscripted. Perhaps I felt that she was local. When I complimented the architecture and furnitures of her home, she freaked out. She insisted that her address is just a drop box - she don't live there.
Of course I can tell. I drove pass there everyday. I have been in so many houses, apartments and hotels. An apartment in that address will be build and furnished just like her home.
It's interesting to see how the mind works. For a starter there's the very old declassified CIA interrogation manual. All you need to know is that you can force persons to do something they are unwilling to, without physical violence. Advertising, sales, management, they are all at it as much as it's legal.
The other day I revisited the opening scene on Breakfast at Tiffany. She is so much a brain washed girl, just like 99% of us.
In this case, if you want clients to think real, put in as much real things as you can.
But it can be a disaster. Depends on what sort of client you are after. If you ask for $500 or more an hour, you hope your clients know how to tell good pictures from bad ones.
You can always put on a blond wig, put up another ad on blackpages with cell phones pictures. Make you have another phone number and name.
Chanel can tell you that it doesn't matter $1000 an hour or $150 half hour. The best clients are those who don't mind a lot of lube. Get in, jerk off intensely inside a pussy, and then get out fast.
For anything else you really need a Mastercard or any cards with high limits, after you spend all your disposable income.
