A blurry and vapid quick print.
People Magazine’s Tribute to Farrah, “Remembering Farrah Her Life in Pictures” is disappointingly vapid and of poor quality. Many images, such as her famous poster, are bitmapped, blurry and fuzzy and the contrast is off. When I was in Los Angeles last week I looked and looked for this edition. When I got back to San Diego I ordered it on EBay after scouring most of San Diego, for twice the sticker price. But today, I stopped in at the magazine stand on the way to the gym and asked if they were going to get any in. To my surprise, they had four. It’s a fluff piece and not very well put together. I’m hoping someone will take the time and do the research and put something more appropriate and certainly of a better quality than what I see here. I’m really disappointed. For a woman who was one of the most photographed women of her time it’s mostly stock images and images you can find on any Google search. She graced the covers of People magazine many times, I expected more. If I was grading this, I’d have to give it a D. I’ve always said, “Rush it, flush it.” This is a great example of hurrying to get something out but not being careful about what is generated. There really is no excuse for the sloppy and blurry images along with the bad adjustments made to the contrast and hue saturation. Farrah deserved a better tribute. I expected more from a Publisher that brags about their prowess as a leader in the entertainment industry and how selective they are about their cover model selection. BAD JOB People. You blew it.
