Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
David generally works as a free-lance news photographer. If his photos have blood or more than a hint of violence in them, they sell better. Somehow, he gets a fashion photo job with a foreign company looking to sell high-class clothing and cosmetics in an advertising blitz. For the photos he shows his bosses, he uses tame, safe, glossy stuff, exactly like the pictures everyone else shoots. Once he gets their approval for a big-bucks ad campaign, instead of shipping out the safe negatives to be inserted in ad spaces on billboards and magazines, he ships out some negatives drenched with the same aura of violence that informed his news photos. Just as he imagined they would, the gritty newsroom-type photos make a big, big splash for the company's products, and he has become very successful. Unfortunately, his way to the top was just a little bit too devious and dishonest for his girlfriend, and now his whole reason for becoming successful in the first place has been taken away from him.
