My neighbor just gave me unlimited access to his pool, so I took the opportunity to do my first "professional" poolside shoot with the lovely Leah. Here are two images from the shoot.




Comment welcome.

Hey Marty:

I find the shadow in the small pool distracting but everything else draws the eyes directly to the model. The overhead shadows and the curve of the samll pool bring you right to her.

The second shot is ..er..uh..well..yeah!! Or more to the point-Whoa!

Shadow what shadow(s)? I had to take another look to notice them! But I see the point of the shadow in the small pool.
That must be one strong net!!

In my humble opinion, both are great shots. Share more.

Marty,

Very nice start...Im only going to bring up two things....in the first image have her lift herself up by the legs just a hair therby removing the weight from her ahem posterior....which will remove the flattening and make it not look so wide....In the second image crop closer...the foliage is distracting, there is too much around her which distracts from the image...



Otherwise just keep shooting *s*

Rick

Foliage? what foliage?? And I think it is too much "image" that is the distracting part. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Marty,
All I can say is WOW!!

Very lovely indeed. Excellent job. I'd like to see more of her some time soon. Unfortunately, I don't get online much anymore due to my new job, but just thought that I'd drop the compliment.

Thanks for all the comments. I wasn't sure about the shadow in the pool, but I took it out in Photoshop and didn't like the look. I think it makes the shot more ... artsy. But that's just my opinion.

For those who asked, here's a few more shots of Leah -- here you go. More can be found in the Models section of my website martygast.com

I teach photogrpahy. I don't know who is critiquing your pics but they are way off. Both are poor shots. Both are much too busy. Hide the bumps on her legs below knee. Second pose is awkward and trying to be artsy. If it doesn't help your picture it hurts it. These are amatuer shots (with nice exposure). Second pic should show her eyes..make sure there is a catch light. Best. Steve

Thanks for your comments. If I only hear the good, I'll nver improve. This is by no means my best work, and hearing your comments has fired me up to do a reshoot with her (that and the fact that she's hot looking and very fun to work with).
