Hey y'all, haven't posted in a little bit, so thought I'd throw this out there:



And yeah I know, the toilet thing's been done, but not by me, and not by her, so it was new territory for us.

As always, good or bad, lemme know!

Well, I smiled, so I have to conclude I liked it.

You might want to take a bit off the top to get rid of the slightly different texture of the painted wall above the tile. And maybe even off the viewer's right to elimate the odd metal faucett handles(?), say just to the right of the dispenser - I find these elements a bit distracting and unnecessary to the "story."

I don't see catchlights in her eyes. I haven't tried blowing up the image. How did you light it? What gives with the eyes?

Thanks for sharing.

Two things.... First of all, I zoomed the image and instead of catchlights, she's got redeye. And this may just be me, but it would seem to be more realistic if she hadn't (apparently) decided to keep her panties on for the pic.

Ok Sam, gotta ask about the expression on her face, was it from the magazine, a deposit, or the fact that you were taking her pic? All kidding aside, not too bad, I'm not much for toilet images, but that's just me, but this one does work.

Hey guys,

Sorry it took so long to reply... End of the quarter at school, and it gets a little crazy around here.

Hey John, thanks for the cropping suggestions, I'll give 'em a try! For this one I'll be adding text later, so the idea was to leave a little more space for that, but I'll play around with it and see how it ends up. Oh, and as for your signature of Glenn's quote ("do you like it and think this is the best you can do with the subject and location and model and equipment?") -- no, I don't. At the time I did, but after looking at it after I got home I think I could do better. I had wanted to reshoot, but for scheduling, timing, etc. reasons, haven't been able to meet up with the model for a reshoot yet...

As for the catchlights... TheGoldy, you're right, it's redeye. It was much more noticeable originally, and I knocked it down some, but still not enough. It was lit with a ringflash.

LOL, yep, she's got her panties on. At the time I didn't even think about having her bring another pair to put with the pants. Details, details...

Hey thanks Isaiah. LOL, when you said "deposit", my first thought was a deposit in the bank, and I was like, "What does THAT have to do with THIS???" lol. Hey, it's the morning, my brain isn't awake yet. And yeah, toilet pics aren't something I'd wanna do everyday, but it was fun to try.

Bahhhh ha ha ha ha ha ha...

I love this image, and I can see it published somewhere. It's got character and plot. It looks spontanious.

Avoid the " good photo rulebook " people... if they had their way, all images would look like grade school yearbook pics.

LOL, thanks dude, I'm glad you like it. I gotta say, it was fun shooting this one. It was definitely a step outta my norm, and it was fun to do.

And man we are soooooo playin' some video games soon. Golf is cool, but we also need something that involves guns and/or explosions. Next week is my last week! Woo-hoo!!

Actually nope, not yet. I should be shooting some stuff right now as I type this, I'm just putting off homework. Next week is my last week. I'm only out three weeks though, then it's back to school for me. My school goes by the quarter system... all year round.
