This is a pregancy photo I recently took. I really like it, but I'd like some honest feedback to keep me in check :-).

Thanks.

Great image... I see a lot of bad shots like this but you did a good job.. The only thing I think you could have done is use a hair light... But I shoot withour one a lot myself... I really don't see anything wrong with what you have done.

I'm by no means an expert but here's my two cents anyway:

I think if you had turned the model towards you we could have seen the origin of the finers below her stomach and the fingers on her hand above it. This would have also eliminated the pronounced belly button. I would also like to see an image where her hair is brushed for a different look.

Overall the lighting here is well done but with the brightest light on her stomach it detracts from her expression. Just an nth degree darker on her stomach and the lighting would be perfect.

For a mother to be this is a keeper, but for publication, it has flaws.

But I think Rick nailed the problems. Her hair could definitely use a bit of attention. Her right hand is largely hidden and breaks the arc of her tummy. I'd prefer to see more of the hand or the smooth undisturbed curve of her tummy.

I like it. It's one of the better pregnancy picks I've seen. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

I like it, it’s not the dark drama of most pregnancy pictures, although I think the curves of a pregnant woman is well suited to lots of shadows. Many men that don’t have children might not know that cradling the stomach with one hand on top and one on bottom is exactly the way most pregnant hold their stomach most of the day. Turning her body more toward the camera would probably reveal the dark line that runs vertical straight up from the belly button so I think you did a pretty good job. Finding a way to loose the bra but still provide modesty is always hard to do, here is my only attempt at that endeavor. The quality of this scanned pic is low since it was done 12 years ago and I only just now scanned it also the slide was left out of its box for most of that time. Here was my rookie attempt with the Mrs. I'd love to do this one again with much better equipment. Feel free to comment on mine.

Ken,

I really like the voice of this image. The first thing I thought when I saw it was...hold your hat..."The Godfather(?)" Explain that one to me Mr. F.

Thanks for the comments and for sharing your attempt, too.
