This is a picture from yesterday's photo shoot. I really love it, but someone made a comment on it, saying that I should get something classier [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] ... What do you guys think? Is it really that bad? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

ok, The question was is it trashy? I dont think so. I can see that some might think that it may not be the classiest image of you but I feel that there is nothing wrong with this image in that department. Actually I really like the shot. Beautiful model, cool shot whats not too like. But as always, this is just my opinion.

Because of the part of the robe being where it is, the framing of the image looks like an accident. If the photographer really wanted to achieved a totally provocative image, the robe would have either been flattened in the mirror or would have been placed to better obsure. As it is, the robe is a horizontal line breaking up fluid vertical lines, yet doesn't sufficiently obsure what it blocks so as to achieve allure through leaving things to the imagination. Now, is a provocative image-trashy? That depends on the purpose. If the image is meant as a head shot, then it goes overboard. On the other hand, if it is something meant for Maxim, FHM or the like, then it's a good start. Nothing wrong with a provocative properly executed shot, if the purpose is provocation. BTW, the beveled mirror detracts from the image in my opinion.

it is a great shot, but I'd do some serious cropping before sending it off to Grandma....

I see nothing trashy about that picture. Would I hang it up in my livingroom ? No.. But would I put it in an album..You bet !

I would love to play around with mirror shots sometime.

Hi May-Lu, I love that shot. Even looking past my obvious bias, being that a good friend shot it, I like the layout.

I don't know any of "the rules" of glamour photography, but I really dig the dual-plane image, for lack of a better term. I like the fact that your face and upper body is in focus, then hidden beneath the robe, then we get to see more of your curves in the mirror.

Trashy? Naw...It might be heading that way if you were bottomless, and the focus was on the mirror, but if that had happened, he wouldn't have released it.

Cheers!

Trashy, no. Erotic, yes. I saw that pic on your website before I saw this posting. I thought then it was a great shot. It's a great angle, and leaves just enough to the imagination.

It's a nice shot. Maybe a little too much showing in the mirror to be able to show it to some people, like grandma. If it bothers you then a little playing around with Photoshop will fix it. Either clone the red material to cover or easier, just blur out the mirror's reflection to your personal taste. If you need any help with it just ask.

Sincerely,

Robert Jensen
