A little hotel glamour that I shot on June 6th. Things have been busy, I haven't gotten through the edit until today. Let me know what you think.

Chris,

Overall, they are nice images. It's hard to pull off classy in a Motel 6, but you didn't do half bad. Here goes the good stuff.

Image 1:

The cropping doesn't work for me. Her knees are both cut off. I might have liked to see a little more of the right side of her face, too.

Image 2:

This is my favorite. The only real complaint I have is the mirror. Maybe if you moved a little more to your right before the shot, it might have worked out better. Maybe you would've got the toilet in the shot, which wasn't desireable. I dunno. But if there's one thing I would change, that would be it.

Image 3:

Who wears a bra in the shower? Shoot her topless or get her out of the shower. It's also way too dark for my tastes. Her eyes are like big black holes in her adorable face.

All in all #1 and #2 are pretty good. I know it can be difficult to shoot anything classy looking in a Motel 6, but you did a good job.

Mike

Hi Chris, before I read Mikes review I was having some of the same thoughts.

#1 Pull back further on the shot, no need to cut off her knees.

#2 I like this one and the mirror does not bother me, very sexy shot and her face looks great here.

#3 Oh, She's in the Shower? I thought she was on the "pot"... too dark

SHE IS VERY PHOTOGENIC, GOT ANY MORE?

Steven,

The mirror isn't really bad. If there were one thing I'd change that'd be it. I too would like to see more of this model!

Thanks for the comments.

What's wrong with the mirror! Took alot of effort to get that shot without having me in the frame... LOL!

As far as the third one yes it is shot in the bathroom, on a titled portion of the shower. I shot it there because I liked the texture of the background and the pattern, not nessisarly ment to resemble being in the shower.

I understand not everyone likes dark, but nonetheless that is the look I was going for and I achieved it nicely.

Christopher,

My all means, shoot what you like. If were going for dark, then you're right, you did acheive it nicely. The mirror's fine, I was actually looking for something to find wrong with that picture. The mirror was the thing I liked the least.

Thanks for sharing more.

Mike

niiiiice....

i don't agree with the comments about cropping on the first image. cropped or not, it works.

i don't agree with the comments about the last image being too dark. it's a properly exposed image. chris metered for the highlights, and that was the look he was going for.

kudos for going beyond the norms! nothing ventured, nothing gained.
