You are sssoooooo lucky!

I have lurked for quite a while and must tell you that from my noobie perspective (and I think the pro's as well) you have made great strides and I must compliment you.
As far as your model goes....well.....not only are you extremely fortunate in having such a willing and enthusiastic wife, but she is beautiful too.

I cannot comment on the technicalities of your photo's, but I somehow prefer the color version.(Don't quite know why)

I can only hope to improve my attempts at photography to the level you have gotten to.
You, sir, are an inspiration.

Kudos

Martin

Thank you Very much, Martin... I couldnt have improved without some really great advice and help from everyone on this site...so if I can ever be of any help to you...Im more than willing to give what little advice I can! could have been better on the lighting on this one..but it was a quick shot. I need to work on my lighting for doing nudes. add some polish to them.
Don!

I like the color version better, just 'cuz I think the B&W conversion needs more contrast to really pop. It's quite nice though, as her body just kinds of flows like gently rolling hills on the horizon. It's a great nude because it's not explicit in that my eyes don't dwell on the "bikini areas", as this is better taken in as a whole.

If I was going to suggest anything to improve, I'd say try to get her higher in the frame. The negative space above her isn't doing anything. Also, I sent you and example on that other site (before y'all ran off!) of a different style of lighting you might try. DeAnn would be a wonderful subject for it.

I don't have anything similar to this on the web, but according to the rules I gotta throw up a pic, so here goes:

Don,

Well I see you and DeAnne have done it again. Very nice. I'm somewhat of a beginner too and don't nearly have the opportunities to practice my craft as you do. Especially with such a willing and available model. You are lucky.

With that said here are some suggestions. I love the composition but I would have preferred the lighting to have more contrast in the style of Chiaroscuro lighting. You have some but I'd like to see more difference between the light and dark areas. See Chiaroscuro and Rembrandt Lighting . This would really accentuate DeAnne's wonderful curves and valleys. I think it would do a lot for the B&W version.

Some purists might prefer not to have the jewelery but in my opinion it's a choice. I like the contrast of pearls on woman. The wedding and engagement ring says to me.... "Sorry guys she's taken" which you may not want for a commercial glamour shot but that may be the message you want to send.

As I said I'm definately not an expert though so I'm sure the more experienced here on GG will provide more insight.

Keep them coming. You are inspiration to me.

Luis

It's a really good shot. I like the color and the contrast. The only thing that bugs me is the right arm position behind the face.

I like the color version as well.

Hey Larry, great shot of Heather! She was the first "real model" I ever shot with. I like her better with dark hair...glad to see she may be going back to that. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I think she's planning on sticking with the dark hair. It suits her.

Nice shots!

Luis,,,your obsolutely right on the rings...they are staying.
This was kind of a spur of them moment pose after we finished the Rita Hayworth shots.so I didnt have time to change the lights.....sometimes us married people still do things spontaneous.....the image was kind of for me in playing...but when I viewed it and saw all those curves contrasting against the background I had to post it for critique...so that If I do it again. I would know what needs pin pointed so to speak!
Thanks
Luis!!!

I think you absolutely should do it again!! Love the pose, but soften the lighting a little to creat some shadows.
