Since she doesn't model on a regular basis...or at all for that matter...she gets a little intimidated in front of the camera. I think since I shoot so many young models, this may add to the intimidation...however, for a 41 year old mom, I think she is lookin pretty darn good. She DID, however, for the first time say she really liked the way she looks in these images. Nothing fancy, but wanted to share some more of my wife...more for her benefit than anything else...

Rhonda is stunning.
Kind of you to share. Thanks.
IMO, the third and fourth are the best here. As for the sixth, watch the elbows. [Sorry - couldn't resist.]

The pose in #3 is pretty neat. Ther'es a hot spot on her forehead I'd touch away.

The biggst problem Ih ave with these is that in almost all of them, the lighting is very, very flat, which of course kills the three-dimensionality of the photos, especailly in the first few you posted. I'd be curious what your metering ratio was.

In #1, she definitely is very square to the camera and appears quite rigid; there is no fluidity to the pose at all. THis also doesn't flatter her tummy area. There also seems to be a bit of "stray light" in the upper left corner (viewer's perspective) that is a bit distracting at least to me; my eye was drawn to it. It seems to be from the strip light model right. I like the shadows on her feet to the left, but you're also getting shadows model left, giving her five shadows, which appears very unnatural.

I was told it's a good idea to give personal examples when critiquing, so consider the strong two shadows in this models feet in this shot; this was completely intentional, I wanted these shadows to go along with the "dancer" effect; I called this one "Gothic Ballerina":



It's typically only acceptable for models to pose head-on like the poses in your shots (see my post on here called "Bebe") because they are so thin (not saying she's heavy of coruse, I'm saying that just about anyone who poses square like that will appear heavier than they are, but since models are so thin they appear ok in that angle). That's one of the reasons models are pushed to be thin, because they can "get away" with so many more poses. Even if they look heavier than they are, they still don't seem heavy. Consider the opposite, someone who is 300lbs would have to be very carefully posed and angled.

#2 is a decent pose, but would rather see her shoulders turned just a tad more away from the camera. As it is is makes her shoulders seem a bit large.

#5 is my favorite, not only because of the back light but the expression, angle everything.

Thanks for sharing, she's very beautiful.

Photographing your wife (or anyone you care about a lot) can be very difficult. Of course, Bobby makes it look easy because number one...he is a great photographer and number two...he has a beautiful subject. I have photographed special women in my life before and while on one hand it was nerve-wracking because you really want to get it right, on the other hand it is like two hours of foreplay. Doing what you love to do with someone you love...how can it get any better than that.
Congrats, Bobby. You have managed to make us all jealous again. Not only do you have a model right there at home, but apparently she has a good attitude or else she wouldn't let you take pictures of other beautiful women. Arkie.

She is a very beautiful woman, you should convince her to model more.
Numbers 1, 3 and 5 are my favorites.
You are both lucky and talented.
Thanks for posting.
