I've been reading on the forum for a bit now, and have learned a lot since I began lurking some months ago. Decided it was time to delurk, however - and attempt to take a more active role in the community as well as post an image or two for comment and critique.





Thanks!

Ok as another De-lurker I will give you a quick critque and comment. The one item that draws me into a photograph or other artwork is the eyes. The eyes are a bit out of focus. Try focusing on her eyes and I believe that the photo will clear up. The other thing I noticed is that the bed she is laying in has a very busy sense to it. I think solid color would work much better here. If you stand back and look at it you will notice that the lines of the model and the design of the comforter seem to blend in together. The composition of the photo I believe is excellent just some tweaking would do wonders.

Nice Lighting. Good Composition. Lovely model. The wrinkles in the outfit in #1 are distracting.

Well each of the images have problems. Most of the issues are just with details of posing and arrangement of the scene.

#1 has a black series of rods that compete with the model with some of the rods appearing to come right out of her head. This is a detail that must be observed when posing and removed from the scene. The spread legs, cropping just below the knee is not the best of poses. The necklace should probably be centered and a bit of smoothing and tucking in of the bodice area of the outfit would have helped.

#2 has distortion because of the stretching the model out away from the camera which rarely works. The eyes are soft. The whole pose just flat looks uncomfortable and the model looks like she is not enjoying the experience.

Posing is a difficult task and doesn't come naturally to lots of people. So what you have to do is get posing ideas from magazines, books, and so forth and them imitate them (in the beginning). Always make sure the eyes are sharp and generally try for a catch light in the eyes. Don't crop below a joint, but above it. Don't have the model where she has to scrunch up her forehead because of the pose which puts lines there that don't look all that good.

Anyway, hope these bits of advise will help and can be put to use.
