    i find myself enjoying this show not only because my wife is addicted to reality TV, or the models, but mainly because of the photography portion of the show.

    does anyone else enjoy the photography on the show or am i just a loser?;)

    what do you think?:thumbup:

    I don't watch it on purpose...buy I have admired the photography.

    I saw it the other day...and I can't believe how malnourished some of the girls look. I know that's standard for models...but isn't it common knowledge that glorifying these bean poles is contributing to eating disorders...especially in young girls? If they are going to have these contests...I'd like them to institute a rule that the models have to have a body fat percentage over 0.5%...well actually over 5-10% would be more realistic.

    yeah most of these models are very skinny and i realy don't find most of them that attractive because of it.

    Yeah, what was up with that bull shoot? They had to model in the arena with the bull, but in the pictures, the bull was edited in (in more 'attacking' poses). So to get those pics, these girls didn't have to be there with the animal. Oh well, that's tv.
    And I didn't know Tyra is a photog as well.

    5-10% body fat is low for women. 10-15% is more reasonable. Actually, as an athlete, guys should be no lower than 7% and girls no lower than 15% body fat.

    And, seriously, 7% body fat is absurdly hard to maintain.

    Yes, I did notice that. If you looked, Nigel was shooting the bull right when the models arrived, and he was using a Canon DSLR. I don't know which one, but he had a 70-200 f/2.8 L IS on it, for sure.

    While I agree that it's a shame they glorify such physiques, I think it's a little backwards to flat out blame eating disorders on models and shows about them.

    I think it's a little backwards to blame any problem kids have on media. As soon as I became actually educated about the media, it really changed how I viewed it.

    I think people just need to be educated, and parents really need to be careful of what they say and do around their kids.

    However I do agree. The bean poles look gross most of the time, but I don't think more body fat would make them look more appealing. Some people just look like that. They are just really skinny. Those two sisters would never look normal. They are what they are, waifer thin models.
