The example image when viewed in its full size...a monster to download, I was a little critical of the light but the detail was spectacular and gave a sense of realism because of the small defects(which are not "defect" but are what was) like the facial fuzz greatly enhanced the image. While others find this to be an issue with being too real, I like it. Models will NOT object, it is a job or it is their event depending on whether they are modes or paying subjects. Pro models have more self confidence than some are assuming, they have to have, to subject themselves to such close scrutiny daily. It is the 30-50 year old paying client who will object but they do now with iPhone shots. I prefer shooting young people and old people, both are more comfortable with themselves. I do not shoot professionally but take a lot of portraits and candids that end up printed and on people's walls and found that being sensitive to their body image and feelings is part my job. When I like the subject and connect with them, the results show....which is why I have no interest in charging...its a hobby and I would prefer to work with people who I like, when I like.
I see a real upside for pros in getting MF and D800's, distancing themselves from the hordes of wannabees and hobbyists who could afford a few low cost strobes. The added skill required in high resolution anything, from image, moving or still, sound, quarterbacking, writing etc, separates the skilled from those who just have an expensive hobby.
More care will be taken with lighting, scene optimization, makeup, clothing detail, poses...all things that take a talent and attention to detail that few people have the patience for or the understanding of how important they are.
