Reading Is Sexy by illiara Reading Is Sexy by illiara

I have book bag that I bring with me on the train that looks like negligee, which spawned the idea for a "reading is sexy" shoot. Initially the shot was a torso close up with the book bag concealing my unmentionables and a pair of glasses dangling from the other hand. After several awkward attempts, the photographer and I were satisfied and ready to post... until the room mate came in and announced that he didn't get it.

Apparently without the knowledge that my tiny negligee was a book bag there was no way of knowing there was a book inside and defeated the entire purpose.

So we scrapped it. Images should speak for themselves.

I went back to the drawing board and decided since, as James had pointed out, you couldn't tell there was a book in the shot that I would flood the image with piles of my books (god knows I have enough of them) putting the act of reading on a pedestal of literature. In the end I'm much happier with the 2nd edition.
