Pretty self-explanatory shot. Geico has their Gecko so I just had a go at a different play on words. I imagine some won't get it (mainly because my model is only 4 months pregnant and VERY petite). Basically I'm just going for the chuckle... I thought it was humorous... we'll see what others think.

Oh, and furthermore my model is also Italian which adds a little more humor to the equation.

Nice ecolor scheme and product is prominantly displayed. Comp would allow for text placement and technicals a right on. I think you could of used a shallower DOF to isolate the product better. Also the title (perhaps it was intentional) to me infers "pregnant". I don't know if this would sell more sauce..

Cute idea. My inital thought was that the red backdrop was too much, but it's growing on me.

Very clever. Not really sure it would sell me spaghetti sauce, but very clever.

This is hillarious and would def. work as a real advertisement. The curve in the belly and chest create a really good line that brings my eye all around your picture. Really good job!!!

That's just plain gross. Way to ruin a great sauce.

02/06/2008 09:34:08 AM
i don't really think that it sells the product, but its funny
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/06/2008 08:08:44 AM
Nice... i think the lighting should be better, because the detail of the product is lost.

Tummy doesn't have a nice connotation.

Well, you're not the first one to ever make that pun. My kids used to think that was original and funny. I like seeing it in a photo though!
