    Hey,
    It's been a while, most of the photography forum I used to post on are now almost dead, and since I'm back into this hobby, I do want to talk about photo!

    Here's an older shooting I did, had fun with friends, my first attempt at glamour photography.

    I would classify this as more boudoir/pinup photos as opposed to glamour, but I think I like the second the best. It is the most intriguing because of the woman's coy look and the suggestion of nudity.

    Well that's the moment to hit me with your bulldozer, I'm not sensitive about this (Not art, not a personnal project, I won't cry), as I said, had fun with friends, drank champagne took some shots, those are all escorts photos, they wanted new pictures to advertise. I have 0 experience here and do have a lot of ladies friends who wants escorts photos as those photos are 1 years old and I didn't risk myself again yet. Any tricks, any suggestion ?

    I think 2 and 3 sell. Classy enough, naughty enough, and a nice level of mystery. The others make the girls look a little cheap but maybe that is what they are after.

    You didn't number them but a couple look like the flash is way to strong or not enough volume of light? Maybe softer lighting? Composition is excellent on all.

    I think 5,6 & 7 make the subjects look appealing. The light seems a little harsh in 5 & 6 and I find the background to be distractingly cluttered and busy but otherwise quite nice.

    I don't think the perspective or vantage point necessarily works in all of them (seeing the wall vent, odd perspective of the thigh, tattoo seems distracting because I can't tell what it is - assume it's a tattoo). The skin color seems to range from looking yellowish to purplish in some. I'd double check how the hair is arranged before taking the photo.

    I agree this seems more boudoir/pinup girl than glamour. I can't say I know anything much about escort services in my area but these seem to be about more than just escorting if they're for use by a legit service (at least that's the impression I'm getting). Maybe it varies depending where you live.

    Thanks for the advice,
    In Canada prostitution is legal, when I say escort, I mean sex workers.

    Your frankness is refreshing. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

    Not bad work--thanks for sharing and providing the details. I think for an initial set, this is quite good. Let me offer some overall thoughts:

    1. Remember the purpose (promoting these escorts) and as tempting as it is to find a creative angle or unique pose, don't forget the purpose. They need to look sexy and attractive, not too explicit, no distortion.
    2. Eliminate clutter. Especially for work that will go on the web (so lower quality photos and clutter and background detail can become distracting and just "noise")

    Now, as to the photos:
    #1: Very appropriate for the purpose. Eliminate that shower handle near her right breast.
    #2: My favorite of the bunch...a nice boudoir shot, effective promo shot for an escort.
    #3: Probably an effective escort promo shot and it hides her face (which for some women in this role is a positive). You've got glare off of the panel behind her, you've compressed her body so she looks shorter and squat (more than she probably is). And lighten the side of her hair facing the camera (you've got shine on the hair on top and on the side...a black void). A little bit of postwork and this would be a fine escort promo photo.
    #4: Beautiful model, nice pose but you're so close below her that you get distortion (which is bad). The light hanging from the ceiling is distracting. The shadow on her face from her hair is distracting. You could shoot the same model in the same pose but get 10 feet further back and with a different backdrop (plain white wall, seamless backdrop paper) and a narrow aperture and you'd have an excellent shot (both of a glamour/lingerie pose and for an escort...sexy without violating any local media ordinances).
    #5 and #6: some distortion (especially in #6) and lots of visual clutter. A better shooting location with less distraction and a narrower aperture (f2.0) will take the same poses and work wonders. Remember, part of my criticism for "clutter" is a recognition that on a website you don't want a lot of distracting clutter given the lower quality of the photos.
    #7: I love playing with mirrors and reflections, this has potential for being a lovely art shot with some tinkering. But for the purposes of this shot, I think she's too close to the mirror.
    #8: Good escort pose (sexy, not too revealing, hides her face for women who want to do that with publicity shots of this work). I would like to see this lit a little better...the falloff with the mirror means that she has some arms and torso and the rest of the mirror is black.

    Overall, some nice stuff for your first try at this and some lovely ladies.

    Wow, that is some great advice. Thank you very much, i'll definitively work on the clutter and the distortion, I did find it hard to shoot in a room where you don't have much place, I guess the trick is practice and finding the right angles.
