Was wondering what everyone though about the belly button jewelry in this shot and in general? I like them sometimes, but other times I think they take away from the shot.

What do you think... With or without?

Comments on the photo also welcome.

I think it's great. Her expression is a bit too stern. Some may find the belly jewelry distracting but I like it.

Personally, I like Belly Button Jewelry on women, but it can, at times, take away from the photo, but at the same time it can be worked around. I guess that would put my opinion more in favor of Belly Button Jewelry.

It probably is a matter of who is looking at it and personal opinion. Your model looks good either way, but I also think that another expression on her face would have helped your photo also. I like good looking women with belly button jewelry myself but it's not a must.

1) I agree about the expression. I, as a viewer, do not enjoy pictures of people who look like they want to kick my ass. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Some people may like that. I don't know. But not me.

2) I'm cool with jewelry but I should point out that the jewel in question appears to be a Playboy rabbit-head. I wouldn't try to sell that pic, I really wouldn't. You should always watch out for trademarked and copyrighted objects in any pic you might want to try to commercially exploit one day. For instance, when I do street shots with models outside my studio, I always take a picture of them next to this *totally* bizarre yard art thing down the street. (It's an armchair with feathery angel wings that's ten feet off the ground on metal girders.) However, that's for my own Amusement and I point out to them that it's a copyrighted artwork and the picture can't be used.

Good information. I didn't think about the rabbit head being an issue. I was using the shot for practice anyway- nothing commercial planned. Speaking about trademark/copyright stuff, I guess clothing logos shoud be avoided as well.

Monday night a model showed up for a shoot in a t-shirt and shorts. She didn't *want* pictures in a t-shirt and shorts - she'd brought dresses and stuff - but she looked so good I almost started to ask her if I could take her picture in the t-shirt and shorts. Then I realised it (the t-shirt) had a big ol' corporate logo on it and decided, "Nah, let's just get on with the show."

A good thing, as it turns out, because the lighting was not my friend, but still an example of why lawyers shouldn't be photographers. We're just too paranoid.

The highlight of the shoot, incidentally, was her sister from Poland (who was visiting) observing with some surprise that photography was a lot of work. As she put it, "I thought was easy. Show up, take picture, piece of cake. No! Is hard work!" [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
