she's stuck there with only a bottle of whiskey to keep her company. She won't be around much longer. She'll find a man who treats her right.

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-05-02
raw 5 by *markdaughn The suggester says, "This seems to be fresh of breath air in terms of nude photos. There's something about the model's earnest expression of subtle shyness that makes the viewer smile warmly. I enjoy the tousled texture of her dark hair delineated against the pale background, and the radiance of her supple skin. It really feels like a balmy Spring afternoon..." ( Suggested by Studio-Snafu and Featured by Nyx-Valentine )
:iconbl8antband:
The picture is fine (good). Your description of her standing there with only a bottle of whiskey doesn't describe the scene. The bottle of whiskey must have been cropped out?

As in printed word art (poetry, literary, etc), questions asked, must be answered. (And note that they MUST be asked when dealing with photos).

What does the photo ask of me? Who, What, Where, How, When, Why? I'll give you an example. If she were standing there with a bottle of whiskey, then YES, she is asking me, "WHY are you standing there with a bottle of whiskey"?

Now I want to point out an important fact most photographers know, but don't know why. The prettier your model is, the less likely a man will be critical of the "scene". That is what you are creating, a scene. The scene must be as intriguing with granny standing there, as the model you will use. If I picture granny standing there, I see her looking seductive at me.

A pretty girl carries the picture. Great artists will not allow this to happen. Let your theme or story be the focal point, and the beautiful model be the icing on the cake.

Audrey Kitching MySpace (google her), she has some themes and odd photos. She is no where half as beautiful as your model here. (No I do not know her, but I pass along good info when I can).

"Ideas" are the hardest thing to find. Maybe your models have some ideas? Ask "granny" of some ideas of interesting pictures (but don't use granny, use your model).

I see an ultra fine girl getting ready to dress hot for whoever is seeing this picture. Is that enough?

I do give my critique with upmost respect to fellow photographers. Sometimes the subject (model) can be more difficult than the time is worth.

Your time and effort are appreciated.

I'm blown away by your composition, your lighting, and most of all by your subject. I love the way the light is playing on her skin and the way her wet hair is blowing slightly in the wind. More photos of her are always appreciated.

she has such a nice chest but I was inexorably drawn to her eyes. you did a wonderful job bringing out her eyes in this pic. the contrast between her hair and the shirt is very well done and adds depth to the picture

I think it's fantastic, my only critical comment would be that when you're dealing with a razor-think focal plane, you have to be very careful. Notice that you can clearly make out individual hairs on the back of her head, but you can't clearly distinguish individual eyelashes. The shot is not properly focused, the focal plane is about an inch behind where it ought to be. The eyes are always going to be the most important part of the photo, you must take special care to ensure they are sharp.

This one is the one that, for me, best depicts what I've said about the "non-studio" feeling, Mark. Sadly, I don't understand about photography as much as I'd like yet to give a name to the "filter" (Photoshop user here XD) you gave to this one, but this... grainy feeling, like a movie, is what really got up to me. Really, really loved this one. :)
