i photographed this young lady last night, she wanted some mood style portraits and i experimented with some "nudie" stuff :oops: ... my first time working with a topless lady ... not sure if i'll do it again ... feel free to comment on it...

i used a softbox without flash, i used both a "regular" zoom lens and wide angle lens.. my shutter speed was around 2.5 for most, white balance 3000, iso 160 ... the last 2 i shot in Raw mode, so their a little more "rustic" looking...

Nice work for a first attempt at this stuff!! Why would you not do it again, I'm curious - was it weird? I like the lighting on #2 and 4 the best. #3 seems a litlte on the dark side overall, but I like the composition - did you set her up or let her do what she felt comfortable with? I would not know how to begin, I fear. I think #4 overall is the best. She should love it!! :thumbsup:

I think I'd feel the same way, at first. Well, now that you've busted your cherry, so to speak, it might be easier next time. :wink: I just looked again and #4 really is beautiful, Dew!

I really like #1. I also like #4 a lot, but I'd like to see a bit of fill or reflector in the face.

Number four is the best IMHO. I think it's most successful as it's not really about the breast..they just happen to be there. It also happens to be the only one where she's not looking into the camera. Take note of that as that it conveys two very different messages.

Congrats on trying it at least...we are so conditioned to be ashamed that it's really pitiful. There is nothing NOTHING more beautiful than the female body.

The first is definatly my fav, and I like the last one also. The 1st one the lighting is perfect, I love to see refelction in eyes, it shows their alive. And the last one the light is in all the right places.

Excellent work Dew.

I really like the first one. I love the way the texture of her skin looks in b/w, it's just amazing. And the texture of her hair as well, in that lock that falls over her face. And it's a great little smirk that really works best when close-up. I don't think it works (for me!) in the 2nd shot.

When you say shutter speed of 2.5, do you mean 250? It can't be 2.5 seconds!

2.5 of a second = a half and a quarter of a second


sometimes i use 250, but only when i use flash with 2 slave lights ... it was too fast for the dimness in the room and her skin tone
