    Hey folks
    Ok, the stats *sigh* Olympus Digital, outdoor, sunny day, no flash.
    I am practicing for what I want my career to be in the future (Pin up photography) But I do more of a modern pin up (think suicidegirls.com, or blueblood.com, or lithium picnic) So lately I have my friends, who are also my models to more of that type of modeling for me.
    This one, I guess is somewhat more fashion-esque.
    Would you say it's good for a modern touch on pin up?

    The pose is awkward and the background doesn't scream modern, sorry just not diggin it.

    I would have to agree, the pose looks to akward. There is a wire or somethig on the ground underneath her that i find rather distracting.

    The pose would probably look better if she wasn't up on her elbows. And the background is not really coming across with the intent you have in mind (modern-ish).

    five suggestions from a guy that likes looking at pinups :sexywink::

    1: get rid of that wire thing under her
    2: have her straighten out her legs, maybe crossed at the ankles while propped in the door frame
    3: have her look at the camera with her head on the ground. she looks like she's in agony with her head tipped back like that.
    4: have her cross her arms under her bust line, or layed out straight to her sides
    5: loose the ponytail. free flowing hair is always going to be your ace in the hole.

    Agree with everyone elses comment... and I would be careful to watch placement of the feet and other body parts in or out of the frame.

    I'll admit I know next to nothing of pin-up photography but I think that the way the legs are positioned loses a bit of length, which I'd imagine would be quite important in pin-up. Cool shot though
