I was lucky enough to have a chance to reshoot a shot I posted last week. I did get the same pose, but this one is a little different.

I am curious... What is it that you like and dislike in this shot. This is just me but this is not a shot that I would have posted so I am curious about what you like in it. I will reserve my critique until I know what you have to say.

Mainly, I like the lighting and the smile. I liked the legs but this angle doesn't show them as well as a couple of others I got. I understand that as a picture, it doesn't have much to say. I think it (and the others from this session) show refinement and improvement over the last session. Fire away.

ok.... Here ya go... You have limbs leading my eye out of the image on the top and both sides. I dont care how gorgeous of a model you are shooting the bottom of the foot is not an attractive thing in an image. Also, her hand looks very masculine to me in this shot. I also dont like the sheet she is laying on and the background behind it. She has a shadow under her foot that distracts a bit as well. The lighting seems a little boring to me. I will give you this....She looks like she has a nice smile.

I dont usually like to completely tear apart an image like this but I am confident that you can do better. Pay attention to the details. Watch how you are composing your shots. If you have everything else right and then let her limbs lead our eyes right out of the shot it isnt gonna work. Keep shooting and keep posting, I am waiting to be awed by one of your shots.

Also, really look at other shots on here and critique them. I have learned as much by critiqueing others images as I have from others critiques of mine.

I like the background, but I don't care for the sheet covering the furniture. The sheet gives this far too much of an amateur feel and its possible that the furniture underneath wouldn't be so bad if the pose were better.

The pose does have limbs and appendages going off in every direction and draws the viewer out of the frame. The way the legs are positioned isn't natural at all and I had to spend some time determining which foot I was looking at--but I'm just an idiot. As Scott mentioned, the hand looks very masculine. So masculine that it doesn't even look like her hand.

The dipped shoulder makes her look like she is hiding her breasts, but the mood of the image doesn't indicate that she should be hiding anything. I hope someone else will comment on this because I don't know if I can really articulate what I mean. I think it is a combination of the pose, smile and setting...The smile, while it is nice, seems too posed as if you said, "say cheese". For this type of shot and more relaxed facial expression and more feeling conveyed from the model would help.

Lastly, the lighting seems a little dark. I see some highlights on her face, but none anywhere else and a lack of interesting shadows. The sheet looks like it rendered closer to gray than white, which indicates to me that this is possibly underexposed--but I'm not an expert on this.

Again, as Scott mentioned, critque more and you will learn a lot. You will find all those mistakes that I make and learn from them. Good luck.

Thanks for the feedback. Here is one from the same location without the sheet.


I had actually set up that copper backdrop over the couch, but she said it smelled bad and wanted the sheet on there. It had a paint or dye smell.

I will take the advice to do more critiquing.
