    Here's a shot we did in the home studio recently. The model is my wife, and since it was close to Valentines Day we went with the hot pink bg...

    Well, with her ring finger pressed along the strings like that her index finger and middle finger aren't adding to the chord. :lol:

    I like the shot and pose, colors and lighting are nice as well.

    It's a nice picture but it doesn't do much for me.

    I am trying hard to figure out why and I think it has to due with the nature of the photo more than any particular element. All I see is a woman with a guitar. There's no real connection between the guitar and her, she's not really playing it, and there is no emotional connection between the viewer and her. Especially without context of being in a natural environment it seems like a stock photo to me, for better or worse. It is a nice one, though.

    She is playing a Bm7 chord and she is going to pull off to the 5th fret using a double stop. ;):lol:
    Maybe if she had a bottle slide on that finger, it would look more believable. :thumbup:

    Next time I'll have to pay more attention to where her fingers are, get her actually playing some chords or something...

    This was just a fun shoot we did for V-Day, so we didn't put a lot of effort into it ;-)

    Always interested in constructive criticism, no need for an apology at all ;-)

    I make a living as a landscape photographer, so I don't shoot people too often. We occasionally shoot some microstock stuff for fun, and mostly with my wife or a friend doing the modeling. I'm thinking of shooting people more in the future, but it is a lot different than what I normally do...
