    this was supposed to be a sunset shoot, but we just missed it because we were running late. so we had to work with the night atmosphere. theres not much light on an island. all i had was a flashlight and my strobes of course. the black background is killing me, but we made it work i guess. we are going to re-do this shoot when there is light outside

    Location: on an island half a mile off the shore of NJ

    Model: Jessenia Vice - she is second place semi-finalist in the Maxim Hometown Hotties Contest. shes awesome

    Camera: Nikon D700 24-70 lens

    Strobes: Alienbee 800 (boomed softbox) and SB600 and SB800

    Very nice! Hot model, nice posing...1 and 3 are my favorites. I think even though u missed the sunset you aimed for, the dark surrounding works well for this. Makes it mysterious and seductive looking. I like the way you did your lighting in these shots. Very good job!

    Great work and nicely captured in each shot. My only niggle is seeing strobe in pic 1.

    Don't care for the wide-angle perspective at all.

    Wow. How constructive one can be.

    I think they all look great. I think the wide angle works wonderfully here. Especially in number one and three. I like the look of the strobe in 1, too. If these were mine, I would have cloned out the background lights in the second image. Other than that, I think they all are very successful.

    I love the sharp edgy aggressive lighting.

    Which island?

    I agree (with Petraio Prime).

    None of them look particularly 'hot' to me. You've got focus issues in #2.
    Focus is on her chest - I understand why - but it doesn't really work with her face out of focus.

    The rest - the poses are unflattering - certainly not what I would expect to see in Maxim - which, I take it, is what you were going for... I can see her as a semi-finalist, but, IMO, these will not help to elevate her to the next level...

    I can't really give you tips on how to make it better, because this is not the kind of thing I shoot, but I know 'awesome' when I see it, and this isn't it. I have seen a lot of shots like this though, and these are mediocre - to be perfectly honest. Sorry to be harsh, but when you're talking Maxim - I think they need to be as good as they possibly can.

    I, too, don't care for the wide angle perspective. It's not too bad in 1 & 4, but in 2 & 3, the model's head looks too big for her body. I know you see a lot of that today, but it's still very unflattering for the model.

    Also, and I may be old school in this, I think your shots are way too harsh for the same reason. I know women were given the vote in 1920, but they are still the fair sex.

    The first one is your best. The light temperature is too cold though.
