  • What Happened To The July Cover Of Vogue?

    I was amazed to see the July cover of Vogue. Usually when you here names like Vogue and Annie Leibovitz in the same sentence. There is usually amazing images to follow. But, this month it looks like they decided not to use Box (or anyone really) for there retouching. Nicole Kidman is out of focus, while the light stand is sharp. Oh and a sharp object usually does not have that soft of an edge to it either. I can see where the ground around Nicole has different amounts of texture(poor masking). Plus, the clipping path where the U touches her hair is weak at best. The skin is poor as well. It looks like a first year photography student put this cover together. Amazed is all I can say.

    I would love to have Conde Nast and/or Annie Leibovitz for clients. But, I guess they would rather print sloppy images then give me a call. What a shame.

        Wow, I got the August Vanity Fair today. It is weak as well. Looks over exposed with strange color cast in the shadows and poor clipping paths. Mark Seliger was given credit for it. I guess the slump in the photography industry has now hit the big guys too.

          New Image i shot and retouched
          by Tube

          I was wondering what anyone thought of this image i shot. I have done some mild retouching, but more dodging and burning. The more subtle the better i think. Comments most welcome.

          Sorry for the abrasive thread, I don't plan to stay here, I came across this board while looking for information on how to get the Vogue look, now I am not big on retouching, I like detail, realism and I try to get everything right on the shot. I'm not naive, I know retouching has been around since...

          Why I am upset with the July issue of Vogue Paris
          by ThePhotographer
          First of all while being the June / July edition it's the shortest edition yet with only 202 pages. Moving on, the second problem, Emmanuelle Alt, the new editor. She is one of the worst editors of Vogue ever, the magazine has nearly lost all of its class with her inclusions of beauty and makeup advice...
