I seem to have a lot to say about other people's images, I reckon its only fair that you have a say in mine.

This is Angie. My wife calls her my playmate. We have done 4 shoots together, and I am seeing wonderful growth from her at each shoot - better body awareness, less need for directing, more flirty. This is from last night's shoot.

The model seems to removed from the background to me. She isn't casting any shadows. Very cute model but I don't think the brackground does the shot justice. Just my opinion....what do I know [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

to go to the bathroom? The lighting is great, highlights are right where you want them. The background is very soft once it seperates from the wall, but once on the floor I can see wrinkles. It seems a little out of place. The barefoot thing doesn't do it for me either, not in this setting.

That said, I look up to you as a creative photographer. Your nude studies are some of my favorites. I can't wait till the table book comes out.

Nice work, Ed!

I like the lighting and pose in your image a lot. Good job.

I also agree that working with the same model over time is of great benefit to both parties. The model gets to learn and adjust to your particular style of shooting while you get to understand her positioning and can often anticipate an expression as time goes on. I usually liken that connection to a dance, but in truth maybe an orchestra tuning up is more in line with the experience. From what first sounds like random noise, you both fall into synch into a perfectly-timed symphony.

Looking forward to the next "song" all ready! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Not to critique your critique, but I am curious as to why you expect the model to cast shadows. It is a common studio technique to reduce - even eliminate - shadows cast by the subjects.

I guess the "subtext" of the background didn't come thru as I had hoped. Since this was a studio swimsuit shot, I was trying to add a beach-like texture to the floor. I used paper for the background, and a muslin drop for the floor.

Glad you like my nudes -- there will be more coming soon - as soon as I can get into the darkroom again!

I tend to think that the lack of shadow argument is brought about by the contrast between the floor and background.

I am pleased to hear you are working with a model who is learning well.

True, but she is casting a shadow. Her right arm is very dark compared to the rest of the scene...except her hair. Maybe that's where I got the idea from.

Kind of reminds me of a Gil Elvgren painting.

Wow! Thanks...I was going for an "old school" pin-up look. I'm glad you saw it!
