    Brad Pitt and Chanel N 5

    In some newspapers in England (I assume also in other countries) there is a portrait of Brad Pitt being used to promote Chanel N5. I can’t help thinking this is printed too soft, as a higher contrast print would (I feel) improve the message for this image. What do others think?

    It looks like digital B/W hence the softness, despite the softness he starts to look very old in my opinion. Printing the image a little harder to give it an edge would look better. Maybe they were afraid that too much of an edge would scare their target costumers, women.

    On an personal level I prefer the Audrey Tautou ad even though she uses a digital camera it's a beautiful ad campaign and commercial.

    He is almost 50. Not old, but no Spring chicken anymore. He can eat crackers in my bed anytime, though.

    If you close your eyes I will look like Brad Pitt for you.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Yeah, but you'd have to smell like Chanel #5 for her too. Not many of us could pull that off very well. Maybe after a day's hunting or shooting at the range, a couple hours at the local pub, and napping a couple hours in an old leather recliner. Then.... maybe.

    I found references to the Channel #5/Brad Pitt photographs being taken by Mario Sorrenti. If he used the same equipment he used for the Pirelli Calendar, then certainly not a film photographer: http://www.mod-tv.com/hot/pirelli-ca...f-video/19485/

    Sorrenti kind of reminds me of the guy in this spoof video: http://vimeo.com/37168265

    Brad and I actually have a connection: I played his wife in a movie and he kissed my pregnant belly. True story!!

    And he is the same age as my husband, who came home smelling of redfish today.
