I don't know, is it me? or are the forums dying a slow death lately, I know its summer and everyone is busy, but its warm enough to be taking some images from time to time, So why isn't anyone posting lately? I havent been shooting much seems I've hit a dry spell on models or I just suck that much they lost interest!

Here are a couple recent images of Lexy feel free to critique,shred or whatever you wish...

Other than the slight bit of hair covering her right eye I really like the softness, composition and pose of the first shot. The second shot I like the dramatic lighting, but something about it maybe the color and expression makes me feel a bit uncomfortable as the viewer. Maybe this is the feeling you were going for?

I've noticed it too, Don. Just not a whole lot going on here. I've been shooting, just stuff no one would be interested in here (more product stuff). Potentially, I could be shooting model tests on a regular basis, but I'm at a point right now that I gotta be making money somehow, and shooting free tests for agencies ain't gonna feed me (and I like to eat, lol). Not that I wouldn't wanna do that just for the fun of it and for my own book -- I would -- but until the financial thing gets straightened out, shooting models has got to be put on the back burner.

As for the weather and all, well, summer most places is usually nice, but summer here is retarded hot and humid, not too mention raining almost every afternoon. Makes me wanna stay inside as much as possible.

Those are my excuses. What's everyone elses?

Don,
Your photography is always beautiful, and Lexy as the subject is icing on the cake. I am particularly fond of the first one.

Now to answer your question, I can only answer for myself, of course, but for me I am spooked by the 2257 law. I think much of my recent stuff may show too much
"simulated lascivious genital exposure." My photos are far from pornographic, and personally, I think tastefully done, but regardless, if a woman has a seductive look on her face and her legs are even slightly spread (clothed of unclothed) you are subject to 2257 guide lines. So for now, I have decided to remove several of my recent posts and to stop posting until I shoot some "2257 safe" stuff.
I understand that many of the professionals feel that to follow the guide lines is no big deal. But for me, a hobbyist that shoots primarily his wife, it actually is a big deal. The law clearly states I must post a 2257 statement on the photo or at least on every web page that the photo is displayed. For one, I really don't want to put my wife's and my address online for obvious reasons. Two, Garage Glamour has yet to address the need for a mechanism to display a 2257 statement on it's web site.
I suspect that many photographers here may be scoffing at my paranoia, but why the hell should I trust the feds to use good judgement and common sense.
Don, I hope I haven't highjacked your post, but that is my answer to your question and I suspect others may feel the same.
David

Don -
My first thoughts on seeing the first image were that her eyes were too sharp for the rest of the image. But the more I look at it, the more that single irregularity makes that image more than a straight, pseudo-antique glamour shot. Nice work, seriously. Really strong image, IMO.
Is it something you did in post, something DeAnn did with her wizardry, just the way the model is, or are my eyes tricking me again?
Thanks for sharing.

I've noticed fewer images posted lately also, not just this website but several of them. Not sure why we aren't seeing more posts but comments occasionally include drama and bs on some of the images that have been posted on these websites. Jealousy perhaps?

Back to your images. All bs aside, I like both of them. The first one has a bit of a vintage appearance to it. Although the skin tone looks different than what I usually see from you the second one has dramatic lighting, which I like and has me wanting to see more of the subject.

Glad you felt like it.

About 90% of my photography is for paying customers... portraits, etc, so I don't have images to post that interest most photographers.

I believe a certain mentality had taken over as far as internet models.... that being; they are just interested in getting free shots, and not really interested in modeling. Free is OK, on a limited basis (if the model is worth the effort) , but most in my area have nothing much to offer.

I can totally relate, however I'm finding the ones that don't want to be models easier to work with than the Diva Internet Models!

It's not just you Don, but like it's been said, it is summer time and while I'm not the norm this year (I've been dead slow - 2 shoots all year -ugh.)

I've noticed the generally lackluster participation on photo forums. Don't have a clue why that is. It's been steadily declining for a while now. Don't think it's a lack of interest in the general subject matter as my blog keeps increasing in traffic. So, there's definitely interest in the subject (and results) of shooting pretty girls but maybe that interest is with more people who are more interested in more passive participation?
