The model is Tina. She was great and helped me out tremendously.

Congratz on rising above "lurker" status!

Personally, I think both images suffer somewhat because of the framing/cropping. The model seems almost secondary to the rose petals and the black, satin sheets.

I would agree with JimmyD about the cropping, and add my own 2 cents, by saying that the eyes look a little soft, and the copyright placement in the frist one needs to be moved and resized so it's not covering the model.

Great first post though, keep shooting, keep posting.

Great feedback. Thank you both for the critique and comments.

I hope to become more active here. Just having a tough time finding models in my neck of the woods.

chris,

image one is a no.

image two is a yes.

everything that's working in image two is not working in image one.

keep going in image two's direction.

well done.

Looks to me like a nice pair of fantasy photos. I can't imagine a paying client becoming upset with either. Your goal is to make money with your photos, right? If that is the case, then you are clearly working on it by putting in the effort to take flattering images. Of all the photos involving rose peddles, yours is the best I've seen. The standard drill seems to be one where the model is laying nude on a carpet, or a white cove, and some GWC sprinkles rose peddles on her, which looks like an attempt to try to make a "tacky" image of a naked chick, not looks so tacky, but it never works. Your set clearly wasn't thrown together over a matter of seconds. I'll bet if you hung a 24x36 of that shot in your studio, women would want to have that $hot for their significant others. The second picture is wonderful too. Again, it doesn't look like a chick laying butt naked on a bed, in some attempt to take snap shots of a naked chick, in order for the picture to not look like an all out attempt to get a chick naked so you can take pictures of her. Your lighting is exposed properly from what I see on my monitor, and color balanced well. You put a lot of work into your images. I'd suggest listening to what other "glamour" photographers are doing, who have studios, and cater to the public, rather than fashion photogs, and professional wannabes. I look forward to seeing more from you in the future.
