so i skipped to the end and didn't read everything, but you need different poses. and that doesn't really seem like something i would ever suggest you let someone print poster size. seriously look at magazines for poses and outfits and see whats sexy and tasteful vs trashy and obscene. besides even the trashy hot ones she can get printed and give to her b/f

I know it's been said but she doesn't look comfortable at all. Sure she'd dressed sexy but with that demeanor she may as well be headed to the grocery store rather than the bedroom.

Here is one of her smiling but it doesn't have that "I'm sexy" feel to it.

This to me at least seems more natual and comfortable. I am also left with the thought- if that tattoo is a name, then what does she call the other one?:lmao:

her black hair against the black background - are you using a back light?

What about using a prop? eating some joghurt from a silver spoon or eating / sucking a chocolate finger slowly, oh so sloooowly :drool:


......edit....
Anyone remember the Cadbury's Flake commercial with the ringing telephone?.. Caused a stir with the conservative side of the 80s. My then teenage hormones won't ever let me forget, it was like any time of the day porn and thanks to YouTube I've found if for you....

What a way to eat chocolate!! ;)

I think the biggest problem with this shoot is the giant field of white that is her outfit. To me it just takes over the image I think the smiling one looks so much better just because all that white is broken up with her arms.

i don't think a big smile is needed a sh*t eating grin would have been PERFECT (like a devious smile!)...i still like the shots, maybe convert a few to B/W?

What's you charge for this and how much work was involved. I see you have a nice and decent backdrop there

You've got a pretty good start but agree that there could be some improvement next time. Don't be afraid to bump up the ISO on your camera so that you can shoot with a higher shutter speed and will have a tad more DOF. Some separation of the subject's hair and the back ground would be good and can be obtained using a small lamp with a low wattage bulb set behind her. No fancy or expensive lighting needed. If it's giving you too much of an 80's hair light effect... drape a white sheet or pillow cloth over the shade. Just take care not to leave it on there long as some bulbs do tend to get hot.

A more serious look is ok but try a few with a slight smile. I usually tell my client to think happy, sexy thoughts and to take a deep breath in through the nose and out through the mouth and to keep the little smile on their face. That almost always keeps a semi serious look without them looking pissed off.

That all said... I love the last one but agree that it's a tad soft. You can help it a bit by doing a b&w conversion or using a small brush and burning in around her eyes (eyeliner), lashes, around the edge of the iris and the pupils. Set to 20% - burn as needed. It can often help a great but slightly out of focus image to seem not so soft.

I may be doing the same type thing. I was looking at my pictures and she was liking all my work and she want to do an "intimate" (as she said it) shoot for her boyfriend for Valentine's Day. She says intimate and she means it too. I told her $100 and that would take care of the shoot, and retouching in PS of course. Print would be extra.

I'm not sure what poses she would want nor where I would want to take them. Because they will be these type pictures, it's not like there's many places outside to shoot for obvious reasons but I don't have a studio or backdrop. Any ideas what I can do.

She might have three other friends do it for their boyfriends too for Valentine's Day.

Sorry for asking this in this thread, but I didn't want to really have to start a new one.


Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Smile picture is better. and some women need to be able to pull of desire instead of boredom when donig a serious face. They think relaxing every single muscle in their face makes them look serious, her husband would get ni the mood a lot faster with a slight snarl waiting to break loose out of those lips and fierce eyes. Almost like "you, me, bed, now!"

random google searc for "fierce model"

Her bed, or her place in general if practical. She will probably feel more comfortable, and that will show in the photos.

Sorry for the hijack.... :blushing:

Lots of places. Her bed, a hotel, an air mattress on the floor, couch, bath tub, etc... PM me for my site info. I don't want to hijack too much.

ohh, just realized how old this thread was...but i guess i'll give a little C&C.. but looks like most topped it off.

Composition...does nothing for me. In those types of shots, they should be alittle more sexier poses and not dead center every time. Step away a bit form the bg and let it dissappear into black...the wrinkles and lines are a little distracting.

Thanks for sharing!

I think you did a good job as the photographer. But like some of the others I can just not get over that face. Sexy is a tease expression...not "dont eff with me". I'm sure it varies for each couple...but her smile could of been used in a more flirtatious manner.

Great job for what you had to work with.:thumbup:
