These 2 images are from a shoot with my wife this afternoon. We ATTEMPTED to lean more toward glamour rather than standard portraiture.

As always, comments appreciated....

Your lighting is way too flat. Cut way back on the fill. Better yet work on getting a good picture with just one light.

I like the first one better than the second one. The idea might have been good to make the second one more sexy, but the execution is not there...

Thanks Victoria, and you are correct that WAS the attempt. With no modeling experience and a rookie photog...it's almost like the "blind leading the blind"...BUT ,thats what I'm here for....critique and learning...

Thanks for the response, and we'll just have to work harder!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

The finger thing as to look fairly natural and that can be tricky. Here is an example that I culled from a recent shoot as an example:

Now THAT is what we were attempting...that DOES look natural. Victoria commented the "execution" just wasn't there and we agree and I appreciate the example.

Nice work as always my friend....

BTW, got your PM and hope to see you in Dallas/FW one day soon....

as a person who has shot more smut than has been seen by your average army battalion, i can honestly say that the finger in the mouth thing, as a suggestive pose, is not only way overdone, but rarely TRULY works. it's more cliche than rose petals on a naked female's body.

but what do i know?

of course, a finger or fingers just barely touching or grazing a nipple or nipples as a woman, in soft focus, auto-sensuously looks down at her heaving breasts... now that's art!

I agree, probably shouldn't have even tried it...I bet Scott Norwood wished he could've taken that missed field goal back when he lost the Bills the Super Bowl to the Giants way back when....

Now as to your art reference...I am one heck of a salesman...thats what I do...I sell money...But I ain't near good enough to sell that kind of ART in this household, no sir... wish I was...ain't happenin'... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
