Hello, All!
First off I HAVE to use the moniker "Hotttimaging" because I live in a VERY REPRESSIVE area-a place where if what I do photographically and artistically, I would be "tarred and feathered"-LITERALLY.
For this reason models are few and far in between, as I must be discrete.
Anyway, I have been shooting erotic (Met Art style-NOT PORN-NO toys, self-gratification, ect.) photography for about 17 years, dropping out for a while for a number of reasons, but getting back into the saddle about 3 years ago-just after losing 2/3 of my right lung to cancer.
I am now disabled and cannot work anymore per se. So I picked up my camera again and got back into art as well. I am working on arrangements for doing erotic and bikini art in both web and print. Living on disability aI cannot afford a lot of lighting eqipment, or high-end cameras (I use a Canon digital Rebel, a fugi S5000) But I hope that you will like my work. it's not the best, but I like it with the ambition to do more and do better.
I am open to CONSTRUCTIVE critisism,so feel free to comment.
If you'd like you can check out my website-www.hotttimaging.com drop me a line and we can "chew the fat"
Thanks!

You really need to state where you are, so you can work with models knowingly and willingly in my opinion. The beach photography is not done in a way that it does the women the best look. For instance without seeing the eyes it is hard to connect to the girls. 2 the shaddows are too harsh to be very kind to their skin. You do not have to have fancy lighting to shoot beautiful work. The sun did Ansel Adams great wonders, you only have to know your light. Its kind of like Steven Raschlen "Know your fire" I guess you probably have figured out he is a bbq chef. I can cook a beautiful steak with just a hickory stick.

First, let me state again in another way-I CANNOT give my location BECAUSE of my location-These rednecks would crucify me if they knew that I do nude photography and art. I am NOT seeking models here-I just want to share my work. as for the posted beach photos on my website-they're just candids for another website. As for the photos, I only have the model look into the camera on about 25-50% of the time because I don't WANT the viewer into the shot-I want the viewer out of the image looking upon the model and in the posted beach shots, the model is enjoying a quiet getaway-she dosen't want the viewer there either-she is basking in the hot summer sun and she wants to be alone. Yes, the contrast caused by my scanner makes the lighting harsh, my scanner isn't the best in the world and I should've photoshopped it before I posted it, but I forgot-my bag.
and YEs, you're right-a high-dollar lighting setup isn't necessary, I just need to get more practice in.

Your beach babes page reminds me of NBC's Dateline special, about peoples privacy on public beaches.

Was that a new record? I don't think I've ever seen someone ask for critique to quick in 3 posts.

Chris Hansen + your ip address = ownage!

I don't care how artistic you are. Taking pictures of women on the beach with a zoom lens, in unsuspected poses and posting it on your website is dumb.

I suspect your location is not your only problem. You came to a forum filled with a bunch of pretty serious photographers and models to show your beach snapshots, which appear of be of ladies who do not even know they are being photographed, much less posed or properly lit. So you reply, "FUCK YOU BUNCH OF RUDE, OBNOXIOUS, "holier than thou" ASSHOLES". Bye!
