In Lisa Dergan’s centerfold (July 1998) she’s seated in the French Doors blocking our exit into the garden. Maybe there’s something better we could be doing with our time than weeding. Lisa’s expression in this photo is nothing short of stunning. It’s a gorgeous natural smile that completely offsets the posed nature of the centerfold. I don’t care how the photographer managed to catch this expression I just know I could look at it for hours. The other elements of the photograph have trouble keeping up. The pose is good in that it’s more natural than not matching Lisa’s expression but I wish a natural and relaxed pose that showed off Lisa’s very very attractive figure had been picked instead. The dress fits the mood and matches Lisa’s complexion but it covers too much without adding anything to the photograph. I like what is happening with the glass in the door to Lisa’s left. It puts the background out of focus placing our attention on Lisa while providing a color blending that could not be done with the camera lens alone. I also like the setting of a country garden. It gives a pleasant and relatively uncommon context for Lisa. Photographers: Arny Freytag/Stephen Wayda
