    Very interesting idea; the first four seem rather ho-hum to me, but #5 I really like. I like the composition and the hint of suggestiveness from the undone bra. I think however perhaps just a little bit of fill light on the hair.

    Thanks a lot :) I'm hoping to have another go with some more designs on her back at some point in the near future, so I'll work on the lighting then! I found it quite difficult in post processing to seperate the hair from the black...obviously the fill light will help to pull her head out of the background; are there any other techniques or hints you can give to really seperate her from the black? Obviously her hair colour doesn't help!!

    Is it the positioning in the first four you don't like, or the post-processing? Or just the pictures as a whole?

    Thanks again :)

    Thanks Janet :)

    I didn't really have much option with the bra situation...she wasn't willing to take it off and I'm not going to force her, seeing as she's one of my best friends!

    I'm completely not responsible for the idea, just the positioning etc, as I said previously it was another friend's idea and I plan to use it again soon! We're already thinking of some new ideas for designs; rather than just a doodle like this one!

    Thanks a lot

    Tim

    her legs look a little awkward in the last one; best stance no doubt but they look rather far apart?

    Neat idea & nice shots. I like # 4 with the hair. Agree about #5 I know you didn't really have the right set up but a bit of hair light would have been great.

    Now she just need's to get it inked!! ;) LOL

    Thanks a lot guys :)

    Cameramike: I hadn't really noticed that and I see what you mean about them being a little far apart. I had a quick look at the original photo to see if it was my editing, but they are that far apart. When we have anothern shoot I'll remember to look at the legs, I don't think it helps that she is so thin! :p

    John_Olexa: I'll definitely set up some lights next time :) Thanks for the comment on the fourth, it's one of the ones that I'm not quite sure about, what with just a small amount of hair being visible.

    Where's the fun in getting it inked, with makeup she can change the design everyday; much more fun for me!! ;)

    Thanks again!
