In Valerie Mason’s centerfold (September 2008) she is at the barre. To
hell with Petroushka! We’ve got better things in mind.

Showing a pin-up model with a mirror is a tradition that goes back
centuries. In Valerie’s centerfold we have one of the few cases where
it doesn’t work. Two big problems with this image: First, because
Valerie is communicating so directly with the camera, her reflection
seems to be staring at someone out of the frame. In a great pin-up we
should be the only thing on the model’s mind. Secondly, Valerie’s
image looks too much like a co-joined twin. There needs to be some
distance here. The other PMOM feature image of her in a mirror was
much better.

In one case the reflection is better than the direct image, and that
is when looking at Valerie’s legs. A bit skinny direct on, but
fantastic from a slightly different angle.

Valerie is a fantastic looking woman, and well deserves to be Playmate
of the Month. She has a great figure and a great smile, as evidenced
time and again. Too bad the worst photo in her PMOM feature is the
centerfold.
