    Yeah. Not really a photography doco.
    I found it rather boring and the photography fairly mediocre. But that's just me.

    It was nice, though, seeing that big camera being used. Yes, the doco was about porn stars, but I actually found some of their comments interesting - heck, they even started to sound like normal people, just doing a job.

    About the photography - I suppose you need to ask, what else can be done with a big camera like that in the studio?

    Hoffy,
    Some of them were very interesting. I wonder what happened to Tera Patrick...

    I don't know, the lighting was bland IMO facial expressions etc... left a lot to be desired for me. However, I couldn't do any better. And it wasn't all about the face
    I have a book of Greenfield-Sanders, and I had the same reaction to the pictures in it, with the exception of 5 or so.

    Yeah, you may have a point. It certainly was a case of standard portrait lighting.

    Looking at his results, I never understood the big deal with TGS. They might be interesting people but they're certainly not interesting portraits. The porn thing seems a desperate attempt to get more attention and little more.
