This is one of the things that ruins MA videos and that is with video the artists tend to forget the intimate closeups almost completely. That is from MOST photogs. It is my pet peeve and has been all along. Videos should contain exactly the same content as the photo sets. If not why bother!
It happens for me that I think Charles is a lot better at video than stills because of his lighting issues.
Ashley is really hot and I love the knowing glances at the camera and her apparent ease but the content was rather muted and way to limited for a 15 min video. I wanted very much to love this video but after 15 min. of that music and little variety of content I was ready to scream! There were snippets of sensuousness through but it never really got there. I kept hoping for more that didn't come. A lovely new model that has all the right stuff but I am left craving for more. Video intros IMO are a great idea because they tend to give a much more honest view of the models true assets without photo shopping or retouching but when you hold back the main course it is a waste.
I totally agree, Hipshot ~ there is no reason in the world ~ that I can think of anyway ~ that a video cannot contain the same content as a photoset. So like you, I have long been puzzled why all the artists who shoot nicely explicit sets almost invariably "pull their punches" in the videos.
The most plausible seeming argument I could think of would be that there must be some sort of legal regulations regarding video vs. still photography ~ but, if that were the case, then we wouldn't have any explicit videos here on MA at all, and that argument fails when you look at Mia Sollis's first video, or Miela's first videos, or Lusi A's "Fidikeia" for example, all of which show very explicit views for most of the films. So... I just don't understand...
I'd like to stop by and be part Ms. Lane's "Morning Ritual" any day of the week....................
Why do they bother with these videos? They all get low scores, they take half the video just to get naked, and none of them can act (and I can't blame them, either can I). Stick tot he photography, that's what you do best,
When we are introduced to a new gal, I'd rather see it in a photoset. It is also proper to provide a more balanced showcase as an introduction. In this video, we have not much from behind, and no clear intimate moment as my friend fer_realz points out.
I'm on the fence about hood piercings. I've seen some that are cute, and some that are too big and distort features, as may be the case here. But if you've got it, might as well show it, so my curiosity here goes largely unsatisfied.
Ashley as a model is a fine addition to the Met family, but needs to have a proper introduction. Bring her back, Charles, in a photoset please, and cover all the finer points, too.
I agree about the piercings. They really don't bother me as long as they aren't so huge as to distort the model's natural features.
I agree with you too about the photoset first vs. film idea. I'd much rather "get acquainted" with a model in stills first and then see her in a film first.
I for one like a SMALL clit pierceing. One of my all-time favorites, Liza B usually wore one, and Enny does as well. which reminds, Rose where are Anna AJ and Liza B in the blog, pray tell? I know Anna was on 81 times on Met alone. Charles has hit it on the head on this one. Ashley is a beauty.and Charles has used perfect lighting. I feel no need to be more explicit than this. I gave Ashley a 10 ++++ for beauty and Charles his 10 to infinity
They are both 'top 5' models, although I suspect Lorena will surpass Anna AJ soon, as she's still active as a model – for which we can all say "yaaaaay!"
Bolts in clits - not good.
You got that right! Inappropriate hardware cheapens a model in my eyes. I will never understand the urge to mutilate ones self. Especially in the genitalia.
Beautiful Ashley Lane gets my 10. This movie does as well, at least in large part because Charles dares feature something not very often featured in MA movies... what I call "everyday real girl undies." These panties are pretty and cute ~ but they also look like something a real girl would really buy for everyday use and for sleeping in.
Watching Ashley lounge around the kitchen in her pretty white top and pretty pink panties is a genuine pleasure. She seems very confident in her beauty and very comfortable in her skin. The atmosphere seems genuinely like a warm Saturday or Sunday morning with nothing pressing on the day's agenda, with plenty of time to lounge around with a hot cup of tea and the very pleasant company of a beautiful girl.
My only minor quibble is that when the clothes come off, including the panties, I feel that Charles could have gotten a little more explicit. Some views from behind featuring Ashley's beautiful bottom would have been very welcome. Her intimate parts were frequently in shadow and difficult to make out. I'd encourage Charles to remember he's shooting for MA now and not Playboy ~ I honestly believe most members would welcome more explicit, so long as it's done in Charles's characteristic classy and tasteful style.
I'm with you on the need for more intimacy, but its more than a minor quibble for me. In as much as we are getting to know these ladies in photo or video, if I were getting to know Ashley personally in real life, I would take in her beauty in ALL areas. I have a certain fondness for the nether area and would certainly pause for a moment to admire it up close. To deny that is to provide an incomplete fantasy for me as a viewer, and isn't the fantasizing a large part of the erotic experience?
Exactly, Kilroy... a really good set or a movie (for me, personally) gives me the framework around which I can construct a realistic fantasy. That's why when the artist walks up to the precipice and almost gets to explicit and then backs away... or, goes over the edge and shows a little explicit and THEN reels things back in before they get really hot ~ I am disappointed and frustrated.
Gotta say yes to that.
One of the highest appeals in eastern European women is their clean , fresh beauty. I love Charles Lighfoot and including some western women is fine, but select them without piercings and metal distractions. I hope Europeans don't see cleats and follow these others down to road to polluted bodies.
I think I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.
This video almost put me back to sleep.
The model has a lovely body.
But it's false advertising when MET advertises Most Erotic Teens.
Charles Lightfoot did a great video with Kylie Quinn at The Life Erotic.
But I guess MA is supposed to be less explicit.
But what a let down from the Kylie Quinn video, titled "Seek Within Me 2".
Agreed. This was boring.
Aya, I more or less agree with your sentiment. I was talking about it yesterday on Charles's latest photoset, and I touched on this as well on Alex Lynn's latest photoset.
I have the feeling that MA's newest and most promising artists are putting too much of a stress on clearly delineating their work for MA ~ as soft and non-explicit ~ vs. their work on sister sites such as SA and MA X. I think that most members would agree (and once again, I encourage anyone with any strong views on this subject, whether or not you agree with me, please comment so that the artists and the content supervisors can know exactly what the members want) would be quite happy if they made content for MA that is explicit just like the content they make for SA or TLE or MA X, just without the masturbation.
I could be wrong about that, but I don't think I am...
I agree with your comments. This video was not worth posting. Waste of data to download.
I hope MA take notice.
I don't think you are wrong at all, fer. One of the reasons I joined this site was the inclusion of open explicitness in a natural and detailed manner, without fingers and objects inserted, etc.
We are both on that other non-Met family site where we can see that and more, but here, I am looking for some untouched intimacy, though not as that is all I seek. I appreciate the whole woman, and the sum of all areas of interest.
