Post your data sets, re (2), Fred. Like to see them.
Pay no attention to the nay-sayers, Natasha. I notice none of them has been posting on MET-Art as long as you, none has any sense of history (you've been doing your art for, what, 19 years?), nor any appreciation of the style of erotic photography you have gifted us with over the years. ("Variety is the spice of life." Right?) Keep up your great work, Natasha, and thank you for everything you have given us in the past.

Your photog pool is actually smaller as Fabrice & Goncharov are the same, and Slastyonoff recently died. Don't let the door knob hit you in the butt on your way out.
I was more distracted by the street car & motorcycle models in 22 & 23 than by the phone. Maybe it was because Lorena's butt was in the way.

Natasha Schon has been a regular contributor to MET for at least a dozen years, her output approaching 200 sets. Like Slastyonoff (whom we recently lost) Natasha has her own unique style. Telling her to take lessons from another photographer is an insult and only highlights the critic's ignorance. As the great Freddy Young said to David Lean when Lean made a ridiculous suggestion, "Teach your grandma to suck eggs". Like her style or not, Natasha Schon is a pillar of MET.

Quite simply one of the great photographers, this transplanted Russian, and a primary reason for my joining MET. Having seen bits and pieces of his work elsewhere I decided I wanted to see it all. I was not disappointed. So much good work! Many of the models Frank has listed did their absolute best work for him. He was a master. Rest in peace, Slastyonoff -- and many, many thanks for the indelible images you made. Go in beauty.

A while ago I had a dream and in it I was sitting in a wheel chair in front of the Prado Museum in Madrid waiting for my escort who spoke Spanish. I was beginning to get impatient when up the steps came Lorena. She was dressed to the nines in a charcoal grey business suit. "I am your escort," she said. "I am very knowledgeable about Goya and Velasquez." Then she smiled.
Reminded of that silly dream by the despicable carnage in Barcelona today, which is (I believe) Lorena's hometown. Damn racism and terrorism everywhere.

You're right, Oregon - 'less erotic and more nearly comedic'. Or 'teasing' rather than comedic? Mila is older now, more experienced -- maybe being punched out in public by a Russian thug takes a little of the edge off. I like these sets because they are more personal, more direct -- And Arkisi has captured the mood so well. It's like spending the weekend with an old lover, just relaxing, playing, cooking and teasing. These new sets, here and on Arkisi's site, are wonderfully insightful, just you and Mila easing into things. And if the eroticism is muted the promise is not. Every one ends with Mila going out the door. What is she doing? Where is she going? Are you going to follow and find out?
Still sticking with wine, hashish & absinthe? Killed you in 1919 and they'll do it again.
Golly, where you been? We first saw the tattoo in a video by Goncharov in Nov 2009. She was 18 then and had had it for awhile -- since before she started posing for MET photographers. That was some 70 sets and videos ago. Seems Mila has some fans, to be invited back that many times, photographed by so many of MET's best. I think her current work with Arkisi is wonderfully unpretentious. What you see is what you get -- one of the most beautiful, talented models in the world. What? She has a TATTOO? OH-MY-GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This a load of misogynistic crap, Ian -- 'American Porn Star models' indeed! Just off the top of my head: Sybil A, Nancy A, Caprice A, Miela A, Adel C, Viola Bailey, Apolonia -- all 'European' women -- have had intercourse with a male (I assume that's your definition of 'porn') on camera, for pay -- some for websites within the MET family/network. Should they be banned from MET? Be labelled 'European Porn Star models'? As for 'European beauty', where are the French, English, Irish, Swedish, Danish, German, Greek, Italian models on MET? To say nothing of Asian and Latin American models? MET is tapping the Central/East European gene pool, and that's it. If you don't like Charles Lightfoot as a photographer don't look at his stuff. If you don't like 'American Porn Star models' avert your eyes. And don't be so Euro-centric -- there's a whole world of women out there beyond Russia, Ukraine and the Czech Republic.

Image #6 could have been taken by Alfred Cheney Johnston in the 1920s of one of the Ziegfeld Girls. Emily is that classic and that timeless. And it's nice to see Katie (Karissa Diamond) in a venue other than the studio that goes by initials where the majority of her work appears. As for the set itself, I thought it was Ho Hum -- but that's the MET standard. I agree with fer-realz about 'the strongest double model sets of late' but still, Ho Hum, nothing but a figure study of the two together.

Judging by the length of her hair, I'd say this set is 5 or 6 years old, early in Mia's career. There is a rawness here, a direct engagement with the viewer that I think Mia has backed away from in her recent work. Now days we see The Model, the cool, detached icon. Then, like today's set, there was a playful electricity, a communication that said, 'I want YOU, right here, right now'. Peter Guzman captured that perfectly with this set. Don't get me wrong: I love (and collect) everything Mia does. This set just reminded me why.

Since his debut here as a photographer 2 years ago, Lightfoot has given us 83 sets & videos, many of them 'Presenting...' new models. His 'style' here has been consistent from the beginning, as if MET has said, "Good. Give us more of that." Compare his MET work to that presented on the LA site (whose name I can't say here) with which he's been associated for years. (Example: compare Melody Wylde here with Melody Wylde there to see the 'style' difference.) Lightfoot learned early on from his mentor J Stephen Hicks (of blessed memory) that if you treat models as human beings with something valuable to say you get unique work from them - sometimes the best work they ever do. Schedule a model like Bethany Benz - who gets no respect from the exploitative and misogynistic majority of the American adult industry, treat her like a person rather than an object, and the result is eroticism of a high quality -- because Bethany does know how to bring it. And Lightfoot does know how to direct & cap her performance. You may or may not like the product he produces but somebody at MET does, and I applaud the aesthetic standard that includes a Charles Lightfoot.
I usually browse here with 'Comments' turned off, but I turn it on when Lightfoot or Slastyonoff posts a set. That always brings the cockroaches out from under the sink. Reading their comments raises my blood pressure to astronomic heights, but that's OK because it's only occasional.
I'm turning 'Comments' back off now.

As the novelist Kurt Vonnegut once noted, '90% of everything is crap'. This is especially true in the adult industry, or erotic art, or whatever the hell you want to call it. MET-Art is in the not-crap 10% because it insists on QUALITY. Anything that can be done to improve that quality I'll support. Today's (Friday's) set of Mia Sollis is a perfect example. It is tight, focused, erotic and arousing at 80 images compared to a few of her recent sets at 120. I'll take QUALITY 80 over quantity 120 any time. Thank you, Jon, for the explanation.

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016 on Villade
When I started collecting, short sets were the norm. The great Suzi Randall posted sets that were 30 to 50 images in length -- 75 images was almost unheard of. Same with J. Stephen Hicks: he regularly posted sets of 20 to 25 images. Early Playboy magazine, we were content with 8 to 12 images of the Playmate of the Month. It wasn't the quantity that mattered but the QUALITY. Arkisi & Rylsky routinely post sets shorter than 120 images on their own sites but I don't see anyone complaining because they are posting the 50, 60 or 80 BEST images, not just posting an arbitrary minimum number. I don't know how anyone can complain about quantity when MET-Art posts the equivalent of 8 DVDs of images in the average month -- 36 GBs! It's almost too much to take in. Be content knowing whatever the set length, you are getting the best the artist & model have to offer at that moment. You are definitely NOT being cheated.

Dear GG - You may have my raccoons. I have a family of them - mother and four kits - living in the hollow base of a tree at the edge of my deck. Raccoons are cute -- especially when they are kits -- but they are also nasty and aggressive. Momma loves knocking over my trash can and going through the garbage, looking for treats. The kits scatter trash to the winds and I get to clean it up. Momma killed my cat last year, but I admit she does keep the local mouse population under control, whereas the cat didn't. I live on a river in the western United States, the salmon are currently on their breeding run, and just now I am watching a bald eagle eating a fish it caught. It is a beautiful sight, but not as beautiful as your nude modelling for MET-Art. Keep up your most excellent work and if you are ever out this way, drop by and I'll introduce you to my raccoon friends.

I know it was unintentional, but thank you Catherine and Vanda, for the reminder. Sorry for the rant. I stand with France.

As some 19th century American said: "There are lies, damned lies, and statistics". Personally, I pay no attention whatsoever to the rating system since it isn't really rigorous (as you just pointed out). As long as no serious decisions are made by management based on this whimsy I'll keep ignoring it. I think the idea of comparing one model against another is simply bizarre. What's next? Comparing breast sizes (Sofi A vs. Narkiss)? Or vulvas? (If Dominika C is a 10, what number is Nikia?) Ridiculous! These are individuals, women who chose erotic art as a means of expression (and livelihood), not objects to be compared. Sure, I like looking at them naked, and some I like looking at more than others. But I approach each one individually, not in comparison to another. Comparisons are odious.
Appreciate you working the numbers, Frank. Somebody needs to point out that the emperor has no clothes. Hope your head doesn't hurt too much from ramming it repeatedly against this brick wall.
In an interview on the old Viv Thomas, Danae (Denisa Brazdova) was asked if she had a girlfriend. 'No', she said -- she liked boys. She only did girls if she got paid to. Which is not to say she and Antea weren't friends. But both are wonderful actresses to produce a set like 'Oil'.

This is the 8th gallery (and 1 video) Slastyonoff has done of Lauren Crist. He does that, publish multiple galleries of models he does extended sessions with. I like all Lauren's Slastyonoff galleries, but some more than others. Some recent models who have gotten this extended treatment are Michaela Isizzu (whom S. first presented to MET), Mia Sollis, Edwige A and Alyssa A. Every time I see a new Slastyonoff posting it makes me revisit his work. That always takes time because MET-Art has published nearly 600 galleries and vids of his, going back to 2004 (and earlier). Slastyonoff has done extended work with some of the best models of the last dozen years: Eufrat, Monika A, Melisa A, Demi A, Cikita, Vera G, Iveta B (her best work), Mima A, Raylene (Zuzana Drabinova) and Nikky Case, to name just my favorites. And in the beginning (of MET) he worked with four great Russian models, Julia F, Narkiss, Koika and Aneli A. Check out his galleries -- some of the absolute best of MET-Art. You'll be glad you did.
While watching this I was reminded of the Jefferson Airplane song "Saturday Afternoon" (probably because Paul Kantner, the song-writer, just died). Sapphira has the same kind of innocent loveliness as the song did. Nice to be reminded of my extreme youth while watching Sapphira get naked.

Some of you guys sound like the mayor of New York City who wants to do away with the carriage horses that haul tourists around Central Park. Mayor sez the horses are 'exploited' (they are actually some of the most coddled working animals on earth). Mayor is probably just paying off his lunatic PETA supporters and the developers who want the property the carriage house sits on to build another thousand story condo project that only gazillionaires can afford. There are too few working animals left in the world. Give this gentle, sleepy-eyed plow horse a break.

Thanks for the reply, Rose. I hope you can wrangle an interview with Altea, or Flora, or both. Give them best wishes from a big fan in the USA. And if in the process you have to explode my fantasy of Altea morphing into Flora, well, that's OK. That's what this biz is all about, isn't it? Fantasy? I'll just have to develop another.
Tuesday, July 14th, 2015 on Lucea
Altea/Antea is one of the great modern models -- absolutely, without question. I've admired her work for almost 10 years. In fact she was one of the main reasons I joined Erro's site and stayed a member for many years. Over that time I concluded that Altea was, if not Mrs. Erro, at least muse, constant companion, assistant, always present model willing to jump in to create a g/g set or video to enhance another model's solo work. She appeared in several of the BTS/making-of videos with a camera so I assumed that over the years she began doing "B" camera work with Erro. When Erro retired I guessed that Altea stepped up and became Flora. It is not unprecedented: Lee Miller did it with Man Ray back in the '30s, Bunny Yeager moved from modelling to photography in the 1950s (lifting Bettie Page to stardom in the process), and Suze Randall went from Vogue model to photographer with a bunch of nude selfies to show how she thought it should be done (she was right). Why shouldn't Altea have become Flora -- they are both supremely talented in their spheres. Now, if someone knows the true facts and wants to set me straight, that's OK. But I prefer to think of Flora as having earned her place in the pantheon of greats like Miller, Yeager & Randall.

Agree, Dark-Storm -- tho I can cut Sapphira LOTSA slack. Especially since she sheds the flag pretty quickly. Thing that most drives me nuts is the American flag lapel pin worn by a draft-dodger politician all eager to send somebody else's children off to war.

Interesting comment, in that Charles Lightfoot was part of the team that shot Jezabel for DD.
I think you are wasting your time defending Charles, Rose. These idiots wouldn't know a decent photographer if they fell over one in the dark.
German research in a zoo (maybe the ladies were bored?) The physiological explanation is because the male gorilla's erection is only about 2 inches long and the female's vagina is about 8 inches (just like her human cousins') the female gorilla needs those multiple orgasms (and their accompanying vaginal contractions) to get the male's sperm all the way down to her cervix. I always thought that, rather, it was Nature's reward for screwing someone as ugly as a male gorilla.
Wednesday, April 29th, 2015 on Laheet
Check out National Geographic. Search for "upland gorillas". Lots of hair there, but curiously, not much under their arms. Did you know a female gorilla will have upwards of 50 orgasms when she has intercourse?
My doctor tells me I have to lower my blood pressure -- eat right, exercise, take my meds, etc. But the first thing I'm going to do is stop reading the idiotic, know-nothing commentary here on METArt.
Thursday, April 16th, 2015 on Selisda
I sometimes wonder that any decent photographer would expose him/herself to the kind of clueless, idiot, know-nothing commentary on their work that floats to the top around here. I'm hoping management doesn't take it seriously because it is almost always wrong. Been following Charles Lightfoot for quite awhile on Digital Desire and affiliated sites in the US & have nothing but admiration for his work. If one adheres to Kurt Vonnegut's dictum "90% of everything is crap" then Charles is definitely in the remaining 10%. Rose nailed it: CL is a protege of the late Stephen Hicks, master of natural lighting, & I think Hicks is right now up in photographers' heaven high-fiving with Edward Weston & Ansel Adams over Lightfoot's debut set. Congratulations, MET-Art, on recognizing his talent.

From some of the comments I wonder if we are all looking at the same set. I'll only say that this set made me go back and check out Divina's 42 other sets & videos here on MET. They are ALL my favorites, no matter the photographer, no matter the setting, lighting, costuming, etc., because Divina is in every one. Divina continues to be amazing. I suspect this set will turn out to be #1 for awhile (until Divina's next set is published). Thanks, Natasha, very nice work. When I leave here I'm going to EA and look at Sati. You guys can stay behind and argue.

A few years ago the American erotic model Aria Giovanni put her modeling and her website on hold and took a long overdue and well-earned 3 month vacation. When she returned she posted a few 'amateur' shots on her website and lo & behold she had ceased shaving for the whole time she was gone. The woman had grown a serious beard. Next thing, Aria showed up on ATK-Hairy for a total of 8 sets: 6 where she just showed off her hair & 2 sets where she shaved, 1 partially ('trimmed' I guess) & the other completely, bald as a cue ball. Aria was commanding top rates at the time & I figure the 8 sets for ATK just about paid for her vacation. Pretty slick, so to speak.

I had gotten a little bored with Candice over time. Perfection, ho hum. Then Candice went to work for Flora who produced those wonderful, astringent sets and videos that stripped away the treacle and gave us the essential woman. Those made me go back and really LOOK at Candice. Now we have this set from Leonardo. Perfection -- Yes!!

immediately think of the Don Henley song: "Boys of Summer". AND it helps that she's naked!
"... world's most beautiful women..." WORLD'S??? You've got to be kidding. Today's sets are by a Russian, a Hungarian and 2 Ukrainian models. Yesterday's sets...well, you add it up. In fact, go to the Top Rated page and have a look. One hundred fifty models: where are the Asian models, the African, the Latin American? No, this site is very white bread, Central/Eastern Europe, not "world". Don't get me wrong: I applaud the niche MET-Art has found and the talent pool it is presenting. I do wish, however, that there was a little more variety here, such as the occasional Asian model (as there used to be), or that the Latin American models/artists are not simply to TLE and its bizarre equation of darkness with eroticism, and that the only African models were not shot by Hegre. But I'm not holding my breath -- just enjoying what's here, whether it's scoping Melody's baby fat or counting Anna AJ's ribs.

Death last month of Anita Ekberg reminded me of the word we used to use to describe those 50s-60s women -- "stacked". Viola fits the definition perfectly.

Sexism? "I'm shocked, shocked..." Recently I heard this: "Men are afraid of women because they fear women will laugh at them; women are afraid of men because they fear men will kill them." See the security camera video of MET model Mila I being savaged in public by a Russian thug (& fighting back). Women as objects? "I'm shocked, shocked..."

'Dreadnought', I assume, means you're English. Well, Queen Victoria had a tattoo (got it with Prince Albert, the love-birds) & Winston Churchill's mother had one (which I assume Queen Victoria's son Edward Prince of Wales got to inspect when he was banging her (Jenny Jerome Churchill) at one of those 19th century English country house parties). Cleopatra had one, as did Catherine the Great -- tattoos been around for awhile. I don't much care for them, either, tho I have a few myself. But I can over look their presence on someone as beautiful as Mia Sollis, or steamy as Malena Morgan. In terms of careers, they are with us such a short time (unless they are Joan Collins!) and share their sexual identities so generously that I find I can mostly forgive sometimes foolish enhancements. I thought Claude Rains's greatest performance was as "The Invisible Man"? :-)
I wasn't going to comment other than to say Mia Sollis is one of my personal favorite models of all time -- & I go back a ways. But I read some of the idiot comments on this set (mistake!). Then I went back and looked at some of Mia's earlier work such as "Oscula" and was even more appalled. There is a certain percentage of commenters who writhe around on the floor, frothing at the mouth, whenever the subject of Mia's tattoo comes up. Live with it, boys & girls: Mia's tatt, in all it's full-color,shoulder-to-shoulder glory, was fully published on another site 3 weeks before she first appeared on MET in August, 2011. Yeah, yeah, I know the policy, but MET went ahead and published her anyway.
It was the comments that bothered me. I was reminded of police chief Louis's response in "Casablanca": "I'm shocked, shocked to find there is gambling going on here!" just before being handed his winnings by the croupier. The I-hate-tattoos mind set that says everything has to be perfect TO MY SPECIFICATIONS or I hate it. Same mind set that leads to collapsed individual relationships, depressed Euro economies, the redrawing of national boarders by main force, and the massacre of cartoonists. Mia's got a tattoo? So fucking what. And she removes her body hair? So fucking what. If you really worry about things like that you should take your meds and get a life. Look at image #107 & relax. I agree with _fer_realz & Rose below. My personal favorite from this set is #59, followed closely by #107-109.
Thanks to Slastyonoff for having the vision and talent to capture Mia Sollis in his unique way -- this set & the earlier ones. And, Mia: for having the courage to strut your stuff at such a high artistic and erotic level -- you create & define beauty. Many, many thanks.

I think you are a little off on your estimates of how much a female performer gets for a "movie". For a little more realistic report of the adult industry, I refer you to the article "What to expect when you are expecting a porn career" by Kayden Kross (1 of the more successful American pornstars) published on KK's official blog unKrossed.com. Tho I can't find the URL at the moment, a pornstar who has also written about the reality of the adult industry is Stoya, another American performer at the top of the heap. These women give a different perspective.

Wish you had given us (me!) at least one unencumbered close-up shot of the bike model so we could admire the details! Oh well, lost opportunity! I'm sure we'll see Skarlett again, but that model motorcycle (with sidecar!) will be gone forever. Sigh...

As I said, can't find the references. Maybe I just ASSUMED, considering that Antea has done, what?, 70 some sets for Erro, been around from the beginning. More than just a model/muse? Like Luba/Hegre? Or because I kept seeing her in the background of some of the bts vids with a camera in her hands? Dunno -- correct me if I'm wrong.
Friday, September 26th, 2014 on Sukafu
Correct me if I'm wrong; I can't find the references that make me believe this: 1.) Altea/Antea is Mrs. Erro in real life. And, 2.) Altea/Antea evolved into photographer Flora. In any case, congratulations to one and all.

See DeltaGamma's 3/10/2014 Mia Sollis set for Errotica-Archives for a bunch of booty at the beach shots (and some pieces of her tatt).

She's another Ukrainian model whose expressions mirror the anxiety her country is feeling just now. She's thinking, "What am I going to do if Vlad the KGB Guy & his thugs decide to invade?" Or not.

Thanks for your reply. In my comments I merely observed that it's unfortunate we only get to see one side of Mia -- the front. Why? Because the photographers don't want to shoot anything they know beforehand they can't sell. Or, OK, shoot it anyway but then photoshop it out before submitting it to the publisher. Self-censorship. Malena Morgan is a good example: in her sets for Jason Self her belly tatts are missing; in her sets for Luca Helios there they are. (And I'm glad the MET policy is flexible enough to allow the occasional tattoo, piercing, etc.) But to get back to Mia: I'd rather see her whole, including her back & bottom (as in her stairway set for Slastyonoff)rather than limited to one dimension because a photographer dislikes tattoos, or because he/she is afraid you won't buy a set because it shows a tattoo. If you want to see Mia's kamasutra tatt, check out her set on Watch4Beauty.
Monday, January 27th, 2014 on Roselle
It is unfortunate that Mia Solis is now only photographed from the front -- anything to avoid showing the tattoo on her back & neck. Unfortunate in that she has an admirable backside. See the sets she did for Slastyonoff (which also show a bit of the tatt). Too bad we only get to see half of this extraordinary model.

Good Luck, Dear Natasha!
We are working on some new features including that, Ulysses :-)
(Ulysses) Well I bet most subscribers did not know f & G were the same person. Knowing that, yes that does reduce the good photographers down so then these are another two reasons not to stay. In the last year or so this site has been littered with bad or poor feedback throughout the comments sections relating to bad sets. Do you assume they are all these subsribers are wrong? What I do know for sure, being a qualified photographer myself, is that I concur with what many other subscribers have previously said, and that is that the professional standard of most of sets featured on this site are of such low standard they would never make it on other similar sites. This should not be the case. Finally your comment on door knob is offensive. If you are happy with substandard photography then that is your prerogative. However the vast numbers who have commented on the rubbish photography have not issued personal attacks on you, so I suggest you politely reciprocate. Finally, my comment was posted for the benefit of MA and not you as I made clear at the end, thus I am off and will spend my subscription money elsewhere and you and the other happy members will continue to receive dished out rubbish photography for ever more.
She is an exemplar of what MA used to be. Look back into the very deep archives when almost all sets were as "hard" as Schon's photography.
Since then, MA under the influence of most of its customers, has moved on. Schon has not. Since she has not, her work should be published on a site dedicated to "soft" glamor photography ~ the niche she shoots ~ like Domai.com. Since MA now owns Domai.com, that is where Schon's work belongs.

A pillar of Met who has such a low rating and produced a rating below 7 for this set? Seriously?
So? Because a photographer no longer appears makes them irrelevant?

According to Charles, the worse the image quality the better. Maybe he will leave the lens cap on for his next shoot.
Why light boxes have off switches, and reflectors fold up.
She's a trouper all right - and keeps a smile through it all. That's one reason of many we love her at Met.
More like Hendrix's "Foxy Lady".
*cues the music*
The Michaela set was discovered to have already been posted on another site. I don't know about Shannon and Shaine.
Good question. First the sets started getting smaller and now some days with only 3 sets?
Good point about the timeless Bettie Page, Ulysses. I am glad this set pleased you!
I'm willing to bet that there is no member here that likes every single artist on this site. It is a virtual impossibility. Therefore, disagreements will occur. No reason to get high blood pressure or resort to name-calling. That's what Trump does (in reference to your comment below).
I respect Lightfoot's talents and I feel he deserves to be here as an artist. That does not mean that I like his style of retro-quality pictures. I have seen some of his other work, and it is different than what we get here. So if you like it, I'm happy for you. It doesn't hurt my feelings one bit.I'm leaving comments on, because I'm not afraid of how people might reply in an open forum. Going back under the sink now.

She has a site. My Erotica.com is hers. Our Rose is the editor and head writer.
Ulysses, I am being shorted. I did not say cheated, I said shorted. I don't think anyone is trying to be malicious, I think they just undertook a poor business decision. Cheating would be setting out deliberately to short their customers, and I don't think that was the case. But being shorted is what happens in the mind of the customer. And I am being shorted.
When I discovered MA I was overjoyed because I wasn't limited to the 30 to 50 shots I was limited to when I bought mags. Back then MA's selling point was its content, and I don't think it should be any different now than then.
Finally, just exactly what is it that gives you the idea that shortening the sets is going to improve the quality? I've never detected a quality problem in my six years here on MA with quality, and now all the sudden there's this "quality crisis" and I don't see it and I don't know where it came from.
Friday, October 7th, 2016 on Chelma
"Violla's glory." is so right. Unfortunately, probably due to the marvels of the automatic digital revolution, many, many shots simply aren't in focus.
Look closely at frame #13... nothing but a couple of strands of hair is in sharp focus... not her lips, not her nose not ultimately Violla's eyes... I can only make the assumption that it's due to having the camera set to auto-focus - and it was tricked by the strands of hair that fell out of place from the rest of her hair. There are other examples along the way, but this one, occurring so early in the set doesn't bode well for the rest.
Don't get me wrong, I like Violla. I like Matiss' style of shooting. I like the way the shoot was set up and handled, for the most part. It just seems that some closer attention should have been paid to one of the technical points a photographer generally has the most control over.
Thank You, Ulysses! But to have a pet - it's a big responsibility! Raccoons live with people 20 years. It will be like a child. Also, I read, that it's better to have kits raccoons from parents born not in a wild nature. Just then they will be not aggressive and good friends to people. But thank You very much! You're so kind!))
She maybe didn"t win the fight, but he still had the black eye she hung on him when she took him to court for assault. The whole thing was up under Mila and also under her real name.
Unfortunately,she has retired from modeling and has gone back to nursing, where she is happy.( She talks to Miestro Rylsky and I asked him once about her as she used to be one of his regular models.)
Yeah, true, that's a good point. And I'd rather see fewer, higher quality shots than see unnecessary additions just to meet a number. Though I consider Fabrice one of the best photographers on this site, with a seriously impressive lineup of models, so I'd prefer if each of his sets had 300 photos. :)

Please Ulysses, let's not raise old traumatic memories... it may very well have been 24 years ago, I may very well have been totally blitzed out of my mind, but I was NOT black-out drunk so I remember quite exquisitely every single second (it's amazing how endangering one's ~ equipment ~ focuses one's attention even when quite rip-roaringly drunk!) and it hurt REALLY badly... and I had to cut a very nice pair of trousers to extricate myself...

Hi Ulysses. what happened in Nice IS TERRIBLE. Realy. But I agree with those who believe that beauty and love will save the world. There is no subtext in this set. Only beautifull girl modeling for your enjoy.
AS LONG AS YOU DON'T START SPEAKING IN "ALL CAPS" we all understand... happened to me more than once... thought of getting bi-focal contacts to go with my bi-focal lenses but thought I didn't want to go through the rest of my live looking at things like Mister Magoo.
And yes, she DOES bear the closest of inspections.

Ulysses, I'm with you in appreciation of the erotic use of mirrors.
With that in mind, may I suggest Erika F. in "Saliena," specifically
shots 78 thru 82? I think you'll be happy.

Sounds good to me. Better yet bring back the thumbs down so we can show people like this just how unpopular their opinions really are! It never ceases to amaze me how self endowed these people are. Most of us know that our opinions are ours alone but there always seem to be those that think that there all mighty opinion is THE only truly right one and they represent the silent majority. We are always better off without these self endowed "SAVIORS" I can insure you that the few that have been disavowed have never been mourned! RIP agitators you won't be missed!
I will have to check / refresh my thoughts about Julia F.
No need to refresh my opinion of either Koika or Aneli, they both are spectacular. If you like puffies, Koika is your lady; if you like bOObies and perfect lady bits, then check out Aneli.

At least you remember Koika and Iveta B. And it'not so hard to get into the old arch.K being a kindly soul will give you a l antern and an axe handle to beat off the R.O.U.S. although if something slithers out of the pool down there and croaks a demand for human sacrifice you are on your own.
Great histroy, Love that someone else seems to care and respect the history and not just the flavor of the month.... Good Job
Gordon Lightfoot,forty two Cd´s,pride of Canada,joy for The Seller,What u think?
Thanks for the reminder Ulysses!
Aneli was / is a GODDESS and a force of nature. Rose, and any other members who appreciate exotic ladies with BOOBIES, check her out.
My favorite of her videos is Supernatural, for many obvious reason.
Lol Yes so true! Her smiles - with those knowing, shared glances - won me from the get-go. Bravo! - a sensuous intelligence on both your parts, Nina and Charles, made this set a favorite.

I have long felt, body hair and things like tattoos are no one's business but the model. I hate women's high heeled shoes and lingerie, but would never complain. There are those out there who like these things. Well said Ulysses!

Wow, and I thought I'd heard some original American figures of speech from MY grandmother! Your granddaddy has her beat! LOL

Thanks Ulysses, I'll get that reported :-)
That's just a rumor Ulysses, it was definitely a greek philosopher
You bet! "Slasty" brought us Iveta B. first in 2006 and about 20 times after that. She is another top name here.
Rose, while you're at it, why don't you see what you can do to improve the content on MA? I realize this is a network and they want you to buy into SA and other "divisions", but the stuff here is going downhill even faster than it was. No matter how much cheerleading praise management seems to plant.
I had suggested the girls change up their body hair, but that seems to be unthinkable. Too bad -- I do think MA would have seen an overall increase in business if they had. What I'm even more troubled by is the quality of the new models. They all look the same to me; they are lacking in freshness, originality, spirit, beauty (I use that term seriously and literally.) It's like the best people avoid this kind of networked modeling, with the same small group of mostly mediocre photographers. Even the best of them are now jumping through hoops desperately trying to please a shrinking audience. It's pathetic.
The whole thing is in dire need of a renaissance. That has been my misunderstood message from the start. I thought mistakenly that MA was big and imaginative enough to hear it. At least allow it to be heard. I don't think it bodes well for it that in reality it is too small and defensive to.
Maybe someday you'll get to read this. I believe you were not for my "disappearance", but you're an employee doing her job. I've been in the same position of having to "sell out" in order to keep mine. Fortunately, most things are forgotten ☮
I love that idea, Ulysses! I'm a huge fan of Suze Randall (she's an amazing person as well as a supremely talented artist, extremely funny and irreverent, and her daughter Holly Randall has inherited her fighting spirit!). I think models can develop into the best artists, because they understand the job literally from all angles. Look at the work our own Ariel Piper Fawn is doing as producer on SexArt, she is so smart and creative. And we've had both Sandra Shine and Jo directing for Viv Thomas in the past. I enjoy seeing girls on both sides of the camera :-)
As you can see above, the guys have challenged me to find out what Altea is doing, I will see what I can find out :-)
Could somebody please explain to me what is so great about Altea and Erro?
I haven't looked that closely :-)))
BTW, now you know why they disappeared me. I'm not that impressed.
Hey Ulysses, I see you're the only one here besides me who doesn't merit a single thumb. They don't like to be reminded of the truth on this site :-)))
If you would let me know which one is the "bag lady" set, I'd have a look (and maybe a laugh :-)
Are you sure you really want that Ulysses?
One thumb up!

So it is better to be hung like a donkey than built like a gorilla? Someone needs to tell this to Bruno Mars!
That's a pretty cool fact, Ulysses! I never felt envious of a gorilla before... they must be exhausted though! :-)
Nah, not much interested in gorillas. Evidently you are tho :-))
But I'm sure their unshavenness contributes to their orgasms! Maybe a lesson there for humans? ☺♂♀☯
And please,stop posting too.Thanks in advance.

Use your imagination, Ulysses! (blushing now...)

Not much arguing going on. I think we have a universal love for Divina and a non romance with Ms Shone. I think K is aware of the general dislike for Natasha's work but just couldn't resist another chance to see Divina. Even if the set was not technically great the chance to see Divina and her tiny but powerful body deserves far more than today's score! She gets a ten from me regardless of who is shooting.

Interesting the referring to that as a "beard." As if to suggest how mannish it is, how unfeminine...
Not singling you out, Ulysses. I'm glad for the story ☺
If I make a joke about Bryan Adams "Summer of '69," would it come across as crude? :)
I fear few of "the world's most beautiful women" would be found posing here.
That said, you're right on about the white bread, and I think of that of course in terms of the rote shavenness as well.
MetArt seems pleased with its niche, but if it really wanted to justify its boasts and grow, it would have to take chances on displeasing it. I think of companies like Canon and Apple, who essentially threw the baby out with the bathwater and started over, before conquering the world ☺

Hail, Ulysses --
"Dreadnought" does, indeed, come from First Sea Lord Jackie Fisher's imaginative design for the dreadnought battleship. For the first half of the 20th Century they were the symbol of a world Power, and the captain of a dreadnought need..."Dread nought, but fear God!"
But, if we had avatars on this site, mine would be a picture of a California Class battleship. They were, arguablly, the most attractive of the pre-war fast dreadnoughts in the US Navy. I was born not in England, but in an obscure place north of Louisiana and a bit south of Missouri, and I grew up in California. But I DO admire the tenacity of the English and their Empire.
Agreed -- The Ladies are delightful, and they do so kindly allow us to share their beauty, and perhaps even remind us of the beautiful women we have known. Though I may cringe a bit, I would not deny them their "tat". They are, after all, a gift from the Gods, and only a fool would deny them anything.
I suspect that Claude Rains, like many of the film stars in his era, was under contract to the studio when he did "The Invisible Man". But he was a fine practitioner of his craft. I can imagine him reading the script and saying -- "There are no small parts, only small actors".

Well said, Ulysses -- well said.
I agree with absolutely everything you say -- and even your right to say it. And I am particularly impressed to find other members who are acutely aware of the dangerous world in which we live. I would feel much better if I thought the majority of the world was as well informed as you are.
But I still don't like tatoos on a woman.
I don't usually comment on "tats" on this site, mainly because I said everything I had to say on the subject two years ago. It all depends upon one's personal viewpoint, and there is no need to launch a "crusade" on the subject every time someone spots a "tat".
"To tat -- or not to tat" (to paraphrase Shakespeare) -- is much like choosing what color tie to wear to the office.
I have viewed "Casablanca" well over 100 times, and Claude Rains' portrayal of Louis is one of the finest performances of a long and distinguished career. Many people overlook his wonderfully nuanced character because he is almost overshadowed by the greatness of Bogart & Bergman. You have an astute eye, sir.
I think she looks sad.
I noticed that little gem too! I thought it looked like an Indian, from the colors I think... Like you said, we didn't get that good of a look at it. Maybe he'll use it again, or shoot in this lacation again....some time?? I like the scale of it, and it occurs to me that it could be "hand made". There are some incredible "carvers" all over Eastern Europe/Western Asia. I've seen some amazing work come out of the region. It would be great to get the "skinny" on a piece like that, but I suspect it's highly unlikely that we will.
And... I've heard Tales of you, Ulysses... They say you were Brave... Happy to have you with us... ;o)
Wow! Where'd you hear all that, Ulysses?
Is that the language of the planet Igarool???

She's also credited with saying "Goodness had nothing to do with it." Wasn't it Mae West in an embrace with Groucho Marx who said "Hold me closer ...closer." with Groucho declaiming, in his inimitable way, "If I held you any closer, I'd be behind you."?

Those bent-over shots, "rummaging" in the cart? Heartstoppers. That is one seriously perfectly shaped butt.

Hi Ulysses, your encouraging words are a great support, thank you so much! I know that some not-mainstream choices are not going to have unanimous appreciation but as long as there are people like you and other open-minded viewers who catch the reasons why I make those choices it's the greatest reward for me. I am really flattered by your words and they give me inspiration for new ideas and experiments (nothing weird, don't worry...;).
I will Go, go, go!! ;)

OMG Ulysses, I can't believe I never figured it out until you pointed it out ~ but it's so obvious, isn't it? Vlad doesn't really want Ukraine... he wants its treasure!
#67 is nice, but I'd have a hard time picking a favorite from this set.
IMO, this is her best set to date. She has an incredible body!
My guess is the "high-key" look is intentional. It's a style, a look, not everybody likes it, but many do. You do lose a bit of detail in the highlights, but you also gain shadow detail, which often gives you detail where most men are looking. I'm sure you get my drift...
My grandmother kept a lid on the pepper jar.

It 's true.
It lacks the spark, it lacks the ability to hook the viewer's attention and keep it awake.
I think it depends on whether you make a film as well as you would a photos.
Photography and cinema are two ways to communicate very different and each has its own specific rules.
I think she looks great AS IS!!!!
Thankfully she didn't "enhance" her breasts.
Way too many women believe that all men are attracted to large breasts.....this simply is wrong. Many of us prefer women with smaller breasts and smaller frames.
I'm glad that Lorena found out soon enough that her natural breasts her are very nice and they add to her overall beauty.
High praise....well deserved!! I applaud her lack of "boobs", and LOVE her "small natural breasts"!! Never to be confused with "mountains"! (To borrow some old Shakira lyrics...)
She's a work of art from head to toe! So unless it't from just above the Met-Art logo...why are cropping it????
Inexcusable. Any photographic artist has a sacred duty to show close ups of this model's face which don't require cropping.
Eyes, good photographer, eyes.
I looked. I may be as well.
Hi Ulysses) I am pleased that you liked this set))
It is a shame that she chose to deface that lovely back. This obsession is one I will never understand. Why an amazingly beautiful woman chooses to deface herself forever seems self destructive to me.
I would like to see her from behind as well. I always hear people complain about the tattoo we never get to see; lets just see the thing! This was a lovely set by Dave Lee however, and some of his best work since he left Van Halen (I hope someone gets that so I don't feel too old). Great set by one of the greats!
