Glad to hear that things are going well! The first image is very nice with great lighting, but I'm never a fan of the 'smooshed breast' look. I think this would have been much stronger if she'd only put her hands to her breasts rather then actually pressing them, and watch it when using white socks on set; the bottoms almost always look dirty!

I really like the second; the look and lighting are excellent. I think though I would drop the highlights and lift the shadows just a bit, but other than that, top-notch!

The overally lighting in #3 seems just a bit too hot and the shadow on her let too harsh. NOt also the (IMO) less than attractive specular highlights on the sofa back.

The last one is nice; good lighting, nice pose.

Just my $00.02 - YMMV

Thank you, what would you suggest for big boobs that are soft? If I want to lift them without really pressing them ? She only haves like cotton bra, so I wasn't a big fan, no lingerie.
I'm so dreaming of having all size of bra-lingerie one day, would make things so much more easier for me.

Lovely stuff. I hope to have more detailed comments later when I come up for air (drowning in work at the moment) Thanks for sharing and thanks also to your models--if someone is a first-time model it's a big step for them to say "sure, go ahead, I'll pose and you can post/share the photos."

Good luck with the other work...sounds like you're doing very well!

Something like this (There are many styles/sizes, not recommending this one in particular). I would say, 'they are what they are' and not fight it. Try different poses perhaps.

Okay, a more detailed C&C.

Again, thanks for sharing. Your use of light, framing, and posing is so much better, you're improving by leaps and bounds. Give yourself a "pat on the back." And keep coming back and sharing results.

1. Here's a tip--if she twists a quarter turn to her right (to the camera) it will take 5 pounds off of her waist. I agree with TiredIron about pushing the breasts up. Better to just have her lightly cover them. Also agree with him about the white sox. I'm guessing that in your neck of the woods with so many women wearing boots, high sox are popular. But I think she'd look better with them off. What would be far better is to have a long piece of sheer cloth (like a curtain....you can get them on Amazon in white or lace or other colors for like $8 USD) and partially drape her with it.

2. I don't think she looks overweight and I imagine she loves this shot a lot. However, as a general rule when dealing with a model who's short and stout or perhaps overweight, it's usually better to have them flat (on their stomach to hide their stomach) or standing (so gravity works in their favor). It's hard to make a sitting pose work well for someone who's overweight but you've pulled it off here. Good use of the cover/fabric/top to cover her biceps/upper arms (which if someone is overweight, it will tend to show there). I think her face on one side is overblown. With a black backdrop, black hair, black fabric, you did a good job of not having her disappear into the background so we just see her face, arms and thighs. Here's another pose idea for her if she's weight conscious--pose her on her stomach facing the camera. If she doesn't want to show her face, she can have her head down (so hair covers part of her face). What we see is her shoulders, arms, part of her face, and her cleavage. One other hint--a crucifix on a thin cross on any woman is like a flashing neon arrow pointing to a woman's cleavage for most men.

#3. Don't like the background. And I think it's overfit. And I don't like the blur around the eyes (I'm guessing she doesn't want her face revealed). That said...she looks lovely, it's a superb pose, and it's a lovely shot. One small thing I'd change--her right foot disappears in to the sofa and cuts her toes off...which reduces the flow/lines she creates. But that's a dynamite pose. She looks simultaneously busty/curvy and flowing/long, svelte. Good glamour poses can do that.

#4. Just fricking outstanding--I love it. I'd make two post-production changes. I'd lighten the hair in her part a little bit. It's in shadow but it makes her look like her roots are showing badly. Just a little bit of light there improves that. Second, between the backdrop, the pole, her pose, and the perspective, you've got a lot of vertical lines flowing up. To me, that horizontal line from the window on the far left is irritating and I'd remove it (which can be easily done). Just a few other comments. First, I bet it would look good as a B&W with all those great lines. Second, if you had access to the same space (looks like pole dancing studio--yes?) and model...keep the same angle but change your positioning. I bet you could get a full reflection of her on the floor...and that would be beautiful.

As for the pose you provided the link to: lovely pose, lovely shot. The blur over the eyes is distracting. Better to just have a narrow DoF and focus on one part of the body--shoot a bodyscape, than have it all in focus except the eyes and face. Second, I didn't like the part of the comforter that was showing...better I think to have it all sheets or white. I also didn't like the gap between the pillows/cushions so you have the black column emerging from her legs. That said, it's a lovely, soft, very boudoir, romantic-feeling shot. You've got the light perfect for that theme--it's soft, it compliments, not harsh, no extreme contrast, good use of bokeh. The pose is sexy and elegant and beautiful. If you want to shoot the same pose with the same model and hide her face, she can put her forearms over her face as if she's overcome with passion or emotion.

If it has not yet been mentioned, I do not think the blur does much to obscure the identity of your models, and is more distracting than not. I am nor sure what the solution would be, since I see what you're trying to do here, but honestly I think you need to make a decision about which is your priority - your clients privacy or the aesthetic appeal of your samples.

It may very well be that you cannot have it both ways.

In terms of protecting identity with the type of photography you're doing (i.e.: promotional...so you don't want to hide them in shadow), I think your 3 best options are:
1. A pose that doesn't show full-face or maybe gets mostly the top of the head (b/c the model is looking down).
2. A large hat that obscures part of the face.
3. A prop (a rose, a veil or piece of fabric, a pillow, some fabric).

They are the one who decide about the blur, I always send them photos first and ask them if they'd like more blur or not.
