    It seems as though there are skin indents from tight clothes or bending over in two horizontal lines, one above and one below the navel. I would suggest that in the future (unless you just clone them out) you have him stand or lie down without clothes (or with a bathrobe) for at least 15 minutes prior to the shoot to avoid that.

    Dude, these look great. I really like your flavor man. Keep shooting and keep posting. Your model mayhem trumps mine...in fact, let me go ahead and tell you, you may have one of the best model mayhem ports I've seen in a long time.

    Thanks a lot man! That means a lot. I've been putting everything (money and time) into photography. I still have so much to learn and am extremely excited about every minute I spend behind my camera :) Soon the 5D2 will be traded in for a 1DS3 :)

    I know this isn't really a big deal, but maybe have him do. Some pushups and other exercises before the shoot to get a good pump going. Makes muscles fuller. Nothing too intense even some things with rubber stretchy thing is good.

    But good shots man!

    Much better than your last MM post I saw. I just get so tired of the bimbos photos and I had seen some work of yours before that was telling me you could do better.

    You have made a lot of progress over what you used to post but, please, make your watermark smaller. It is obnoxious.

    #1 He has a black eye that I don't like.

    #2 He melts too much into the background. You need a separation light.

    #3 That is my favorite.

    #4 That looks like the typical male model photo. He should be quite happy with it. Lose the cigarette though. It ain't cool to smoke anymore even if Hollywood seems to want to revive the habit. And I am a smoker :lol:

    Some of these look like he's posing for a porn shoot. It's find and dandy if he's a porn star but for this type of shoot, he shouldn't use his sex appeal to make up for lack of posing technique. I know this has a lot to do with the model's experience but it's also your job to help him with the posing.

    You need to focus on the lighting on his eyes. It really bothers me to see one of the eyes completely dark. If his entire face were to fade off into darkness (i.e. the pic on my avatar :p), that's fine. However, just the eye alone being dark makes him look like a pirate. ;P

    I do think you're doing better than your last MM shoot that you posted here. Just work on the lighting.
