This is very nice. I love how you have captured the beauty of the curves of the pregnant body. Very tastfully done.

Hi Clark !

First of all , I like the picture, the curves and the diagonal build.
Maybe I would have liked to see the belly button in focus too, but I'm not really sure about that.

Now for a general question: Why are 80% of pregnant women headless (and leggless for what it matters)?
Has anyone tried to shoot pregant women like sexy models?

I'm asking this because I will have to do a shoot myself in a couple of months...

TIA
Peter

I've done multiple maternity shoots, and while I don't do a *lot* of headless shots (see http://www.marcwphoto.com/maternity.html ) I do do them. The reason is, that that shot is all about curves. The face is a needless distraction when you're trying to simply show the maternal form.

To wax rhetorical (or just to get pretentious, take your pick) when a photo doesn't show the face, it stops being about *that* model, and starts being about *every* model. For a maternity shot, it becomes a picture of pregnancy, as opposed to a picture of a pregnant woman. When sufficiently abstracted, it almost stops being about a person at all, but rather, as I said, about curve, line, tone.

That's what I meant: your portfolio IS showing pregnant Women - not only the curves of a pregnant woman. I like that.

And of course, I will have to do these classic curves pictures too! The "model" came to me asking for exactly those...

Now, there's an idea worth exploring! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]









OK, so maybe not "sexy" as in "sexual", but perhaps 'senuous'?





The model is Amy when se was in her 7th and 8th months.

Clark,

Nice image - it evokes very positive energy! Might think about re-cropping it to remove the little sliver of light falling onto her right thigh as it tends to keep wanting to draw the eyes away from the abdomen.

If you decide you want to play with post-processing it again, try burning in the highlights on her hand, abdomen and right breast where they're just almost at the point of losing detail... don't need too much work, just enough detail in there to make us think the area isn't completely blown out (of course, it's just after 7:00 am, my eyes are irritated from a cold, and I'm on my laptop LCD on the road, so I may be missing some detail that's already there).
