Too many close-ups

So, I've fallen once again into 21st Sextury (I think of myself as a ping-pong ball that goes from DDF to 21st Sextury and back) and this time I think I've discovered what it is that, as I've commented before, makes this site not as enjoyable as it could be (and it IS quite enjoyable, one of my favorites sites indeed).

Too many close-ups. When I am watching a porn scene, I like to see the whole think: the girl's face (specially when you have such beautiful models as Sophie Moone, Eve Angel and Blue Angel, for instance), her body, her feet (that's a fetish of mine), the way she moves... and with some close-ups mixed in there. 21st Sextury tends to focus more on the genitals of the girls (and boys): I just downloaded and watched a video that was, basically, 15 minutes of a pussy close-up. And while I enjoy an image of a nice pussy as much as any other guy, in itself it doesn't work for me. I need to see more.

I am sure this is something that is not going to change and I will have to live with it, but I just wanted to share it, to see if others agree...

RustyJ (145) Well, I agree with you on some scenes but it appears there are so many different directors and style from site to site varies a lot that on average I'm happy with it. Some sites like Anal Teen Angels use almost too much wide angle as a contrast, especially in their photography.

Denner (233) I think nadiencendia here says what a lot of us/PUs feel - and not only for this site/network - but for quite a few others:

Instead of being so fond - photographers/video-ditto - of a vast amout/looooong minutes of close-ups - let's get much more full body views...including the face, the legs, the high heels...
Close-ups are part of the deal and it's ok - BUT not 2/3 or even 3/4 of a set/video...

We have been around this many times, so the producers/Webmasters must have an idea what the paying users are looking for - it's still a mystery, that they obviously do not listen...don't you guys care - not to loose the dough from users?

Anyway - thanks for bringing it up again!

Thanks for your reply, RustyJ. Yes, you are probable right, this cannot be said equally for all sites and sets. But my experience today with this specific set ("Bibi's solo show") was so excrusiatingly obvious that I had to speak up.

And it often happens to me that I see the "preview pictures" (with are more often than not full body shots) and I think: "I am going to LOVE this video". And then, the video is 2/3 of close-ups to a pussy that could belong to any model in any set of any website.

Thanks, Denner, I didn't know that this was a common complaint, I assumed it was just me.

An example of a director that does not have this problem -and I think this explains at least partially his success- is Viv Thomas: his lesbian scenes are filmed with great taste, big angles and a special focus on the girls' faces while enjoying themselves.

nadiencendia, this has been annoying me too - for a long time...so it's good you bring it up again - and thanks to your comment, I could not resist to make a new thread - see that, if you like....
BTW: agree somewhat about Viv Thomas - except that what I've seen the vid quality lacks a lot - in general...

nadiencendia (83) REPLY TO #5 - Denner :

Just to clarify on Viv Thomas: I haven't been a member of his site for a long, long time because I find it too pricy; I usually watch (and wait eagerly for) his movies in Hotmovies.com. But he is, in my opinion, one of the best girl/girl-action directors.

I also find that DDF has less of a problem with close-ups: although they do include them, they also offer wider angles and more full body shots.

Tom22 (6) You are exactly correct Nadiencendia. 21Sextury has slipped back into the old porn paradigm of a constant TOO-CLOSE camera. Marketers of porn have pretended that POV (so called Point-of-View) camera work is something new. It's not, its been one of the curses on porn from day-one.

Thankfully some porn sites are finally learning to keep the camera back so you can see the overall action. The Russian sites are leading the way and they are kicking-butt on all the old style American and Euro sites.

Shooting a porn scene is not rocket science, its just 1) get adequate lighting, 2) keep the camera steady 3) get proper focus and DISTANCE and angle so you can see the overall action. It's that simple, but they still manage to mess it up by trying to keep the camera stuck up the girl's butt.

Yes, a close-up is good sometimes, but it shouldn't be ALL the time. And they zoom the camera too fast, and constantly make unnecessary camera movements and generally swat the camera around like its a tennis racket. I don't know what they are thinking.

Hey, it took the porn industry 40 years to lean to turn the lights on. Honestly, go look at some old 'classic" porn and notice that about 90% of the scenes don't have adequate lighting. I guess it will take them another 40 years to figure out we would like to see the ENTIRE girl... not JUST her tits, not JUST her butt, not JUST her face.... LET ME SEE ALL OF HER PLEASE !!

Well, maybe they will figure it out someday, but my hopes are dimming, especially seeing 21Sextury fall back into the same old trap.
