I figured I'd take a few weeks off from GlamourOne and see if the break helped my exasperation with the new layout and calmed my irritation over the whole portfolio commenting nonsense. Turns out, no, not really, but I like the people here too much to stay away, so I'll grit my teeth and muddle through as best I can.
Meanwhile, I've been busy, busy, busy...

Model: Xotica
Hair and Make-Up: Kitty Korvette
Styling: Xotica and DarkLeather
Somewhere in all the kerfluffle, I seem to have passed another in the never-ending series of milestones in my photography career, such as it is. I'm taking WAY fewer pictures per shoot in the last two months or so, doing WAY less editing, and ending up with more "keepers" from almost every shoot.
My first reaction was to panic, since I felt like I was doing my models a disservice by not giving them as much time as I used to, but eventually it sunk in that I'm starting to know what the heck I'm doing, which is making everybody's life easier...
Comments, critiques, suggestions all welcome...

Welcome back, Sam. Nice work. I like the darkness.

However, her forearm seems a paler pink than her face, as though her foundation is too dark or too heavily applied. But what do I know?

Gotta a clearer shot of the cincher/corset/whatever is surrounding her abdomen? Your work, I presume?

The skin tone is mostly a "save to web" artifact, I believe; there's a little difference, but the print is a smooth gradiation from the hot spot on her forearm to the shadow on her face. Yeah, the corset's one of mine, although it's not cinched down for real:

Welcome back Sam. I've missed your work. Just think about it though--two years ago you didn't have any "keepers".

StanTom;
Thanks for the encouragement! I've got a huge backlog of "pale skin / leather / corset / goth" photos, so no worries there...
I made the idjit mistake of leaving the auto white balance on, so I tried different color correcting techniques on every shot; the first one is pretty close to what she actually looked like in person, but I sortta liked the saturation on the second one, so I didn't mess with it quite so much. Here's another:

Very nice work - both the photography and the leatherwork.
