    She could be great if she weren't giving the same lifeless look in every shot. Other than that, pretty nice.

    I actually though the framing of #2 was very cool, despite the somewhat zombieish stare. It seems to work. I might have cropped a touch less aggressively on top but even with that I think it's a really nice shot.

    Her pose on the first one seemed almost like she was preparing for a fight, actually. Funny.

    I don't know how much control you have over it, and this is obviously CRAZY subjective but that outfit seems kinda odd... very blah with a sudden streak of green there. Something more interesting or complimentary might have helped a bit.

    Just some thoughts.

    Up here that's a really lame thing to say.

    You must be pretty old to be making Adam's family references though, so it's okay.

    EDIT: 51 and teasing little girls on the internet, tsk tsk

    So, are you the little girl that is being teased? My apologies.

    My preference is they are able to order their own adult beverage.

    Adam William King I think you have a terrible case of the "Do You Know Who I Think I Am?" 's.

    If you don't pay attention to anything that anyone says in this thread, remember this: You are dancing with your model. You do what do you. He/she does what he/she does. But it doesn't work if you're out of step.

    Go one step further. You're putting yourself out there. You think this is good. So what if you did an OK job shooting it. You want all your models to look like this? I hope not.

    Here's the thing. You get upset because some people say the model isn't pulling her weight. Big deal. Suck it up. This is the photography. Even when the comments aren't about your shooting technique.

    At least understand your work. If you want to own everything in the shot, then go shoot bowls of plastic fruit with a strobe. But you're working with another person here and when your'e shooting models they're contributing at least half of your shot. And you can't separate your photography from the person in your photo.

    I'll put it simply. I realize the above is a little cryptic. You need to understand that it's ok to nix a shot because it just didn't work, even if it wasn't your fault. Try not to be so defensive. Nobody here means any harm, even if they are a bit snarky.

    One last thing before I say Goodnight Gracie.... you're up there, I'm down here and he's over there.

    No blood, no foul. :biggrin:
