My wife has dared me to show some of my recent images here. She swears I've lost my mind.

Thought I would call her bluff and see what you thought of Susie Smith shot in my hotel room in Atlanta.

I was really wanting to put up images of Joan on a cross, and DJ Jenn as a Gothic June Cleaver serving Halloween dinner, but I haven't been around for awhile. Those images are over the edge, and I didn't know how they would go over here anymore.

Guess I should stop by more often and check the water '-)

I agree with your wife. Just tossing together a bunch of unrelated disparate elements (mesh outfit, naked woman, corset, military hat, cigarette, ironing, etc) doesn't make a composition. Even if you're trying to do a fetish or pinup-y thing there has to be a certain thematic consistency. Try this: naked woman in a military hat ironing a military uniform.

Not lost. (You just forgot where you left it - we're all getting older. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] )

Not your strongest work as a single image. It took me a while to realize that the background behind the model is a mirror, and the left side is cluttered. I don't think the choice of shirt is important (and this is coming from the guy who criticized your blood spray patterns) - I took it for a cadet's blues, but what do I know? I can't quite understand the action of her hand - it looks like she's examining something, but I can't make out what. However, I have seriously bad eyes constantly and a mediocre monitor right now. In that same vein, she looks a bit soft - the focus seems to be on the shirt and the DOF looks quite shallow.

I think as is, it could work as part of a series involving shall we say unusual people in "Father Knows Best" situations. Like with the Halloween dinner you briefly mention.

But then again it's more creative than anything I've done in the past decade or so, so perhaps I shouldn't comment. But you want input, right, not empty praise.

Thanks for sharing. Is the Halloween image on your site?

losing one's mind isn't so terrible. it's when someone else finds it that you could be in trouble.

I love your fetish work, but this one doesnt hit on any of the aspects.

Its really a throw-away image, especially in light of all of the other cool stuff you have done.

There is nothing special about the model, the lighting, the set, the story, the mood, the props or the accessories.

Wife is right on this one, sorry!

Show us your great stuff!

About what she was looking at - that was a cigarette in her hand. She actually flicked the ash on my shirt and ironed it in.

I did another set with Susie that night where she was naked in bed with a Bible and her makeup running everywhere like Tammy Faye Baker.

Thanks for taking the time to view and comment. I'll put the Halloween image up above. It should start some controversy. I really can't show most of the stuff I've been doing lately here. It almost all involves bondage, nipple clamps, etc.

If you really want to see one that is off the scale, email me direct. I believe you have my home email address.
