How fair are you and how easily do you burn?  I solved this problem (more or less) by putting sunscreen on my tanned bits and letting the non-tanned bits burn a bit, but I tend to tan very easily and not stay burned very long.  I also just figured that the photographer could photoshop out any bad tan lines and so I didn’t stress too much about it.

You could use lotion that adds color gradually.  I’ve used this before with good results.  It’s not as dramatic as a spray tan, and if you use it in just the pale areas, it will help to blend the two shades of skin together. 

If your farmer’s tan is mostly on one arm, I would also apply on the other arm to keep from looking lopsided. 🙂

I’m curious about this as well! I work in researching algricultural pests…which means I actually am a “farmer” and have  HARSH farmer’s tan…

I second either putting sunscreen on your tanned parts and hitting up the salon a few times, or trying a self-tanning lotion.  I am very pale and spray tans look terrible on me, but the L’Oreal Sublime Bronze lotion in medium works very well.
