Lighting is pretty flat on 1 and 3, which is not super flattering, and they feel tense, I think it's the expressions. I think #2 is by far the best and improves in every way. Much more modeled looking, alive looking, expression is engaged and alluring more so than kind of bored, and the pose is the most interesting. Do more of that.

The lighting is flat to me, which is never flattering to a model in my opinion. As well, I never find it attractive or sexy when a model is objectified; these shots lack any sort of emotional or personal connection to the model and come off to me as having a cheap soft-core porn feeling. Nothing about these comes off to me as classy.

It's almost like #2 was taken on a different day, with a different lighting setup with a different camera by a different photog.

#2 is very nice though

Number 2 is the best IMO. The pose is flattering and the skin tone is good. One and three the skin looks plasticky. Poses are good.

I like the lighting in #2 the best but I really like the pose in #1. Either way a beautiful lady.

It's not the WB in #3, just the processing style.

And there is something VERY wrong with the WB in #3!


Ummm, I'm pretty sure that's a "processing choice" that lead to a specific "look". I thought it looked kind of good. Not what one would call 'accurate', nor 'realistic', but a pretty good interpretation of muted color...a modern, digital-era "look".

As to the objectification of the model in these that DanO brought up...honestly, I have a difficult time not objectifying bikini models when they are photographed this way. And I mean that in the simplest terms; threse are young women who know they look good in a bikini; they want to be shown as model-like, as "sexy" or as "hot"...I mean, come on...these young women are part of the culture of the 21st century--if they want to be shown NOT as sex symbols, then they should be wearing more than 15 square inches of fabric. I mean, come on...this is cheesecake here...this kind of photography has been done since, well, since the 1920's as far as I know...and it's basically at its heart about making a young female in her scanties look "sexy" or "hot" or "desirable". If that is objectification, then we'd damned well better stop selling bikinis, world-wide. And dress all these young women in gunnysack dresses...

Thanks Derrell, you see where I'm coming from and yes #3 was an edit done like that on purpose. I saw it in vixen mag and I wanted to recreate the edit. I liked it and so did the model. I shared these pics and I take no offense when they say it has "flat" lighting or the WB is off. 1. and 2. where made into posters and so far have sold over 200 of them at 8.00 a poster so if I start taking offense I might as well give the money back too.

I really dig this one, the black and white looks really good. I like the contrast of the very white bikini and her tan skin.
