I am looking for other to tell me if they find anything wrong with these images. I want to know what you would have done to better them.. Thanks so Much Bradley.
First of all I am still a newbie photographer so please take my suggestions with a pinch of salt but, here goes.
This one The girl looks really uncomfortable sitting slanted to one side.
Personally in that situation I would of had her sit straight and make that smile big, It looks as though you caught her in between poses and her arms look as though she is lifting herself on to the stool rather than sitting posing.
Also the crop you have used shows a very tiny bit of her leg I think I would of gone for more thigh or none of it.
I like this the face is showing character and attitude, Its nice.
I think I would of done something with the coloured bra/bikini strap though. Its distracting.
Beautiful model though.
Maybe the same thing in regards to the coloured strap here
Also I find the lighting too harsh on her left side. (Right as we look at it.)
Again the strap.
Also the blue clip in the hair stands out well in this one. Nice touch although something a bit bigger I think would of looked better, Maybe a flower or something.
Otherwise great photo, good attitude.
Great picture, I think if I had to pick fault with it I would of said to maybe not have her lean so far forward. Also I think the undies look more painted in, in this one. Might be just the way the arm sits.
Overall though, I would say great photo's. Maybe 1 or 2 could do with a bigger smile but really. Great photo's.
I hope you don't take offence by my posting as I don't really know anything about studio photography or posing a model.
I was just letting you know what I think to the images.

Hype, Thanks you,
Image 1. yes you are right she does look uncomfortable but i intented the shoot to look that way, but not my favorite.
Image 2. I agree that the swimsuite creates distraction but i also that it adds contrast, so i left it alone.
Image 3. The harsh Lighting was ment to be it was a high key shot with a silver umbrella with the light 1 foot away.
Iamge 4. Just a basic head shot with nice soft light from the soft box.. I too noticed the clip but thought it added to it so again i left it alone.
Image 5. My intetions with was i wanted her to look lustful but in not the normal so i came up with this pose it was ok i am not sure if i totally like it yet or not..

I'm by no means a pro but your model looks a bit tense in the photos. 1 and 5 looks like unnatural type poses to me and she looks uncomfortable in both. Keep at it. Maybe try taking portraits in a more natural setting to her. Maybe by a pool or something.
Not much wrong with the photography, I like the lighting, I might have used a strong rim light directly behind the models head to give more definition to the models dark hair against the dark background.
I do agree with the comments above, that the model looks somewhat uncomfortable, but the more posing she does the more relaxed she will become.
I particularly like number 4 I think you have caught something here.
Regards and keep up the great work
I really like your shots, but I am no expert on portraits or lighting. I do agree with the above comments. Personally I quite like your lighting, especially No. 4.
I would just like to add a couple of my own personal thoughts.
I am presuming that this model may have had no experience in dance or similar?
I ask this as I believe it helps with stature, and various poses, including most of the body parts.
I am not saying she should go and take dance lessons, but a person with a nice figure like hers could impress so much more with a different stature: eg.
- shoulders back in most poses (depending upon position) will enhance the pose. Give confidence.
- I feel this model may look more relaxed and would try some shots of her looking away from the camera.... perhaps trying to catch her unaware if possible.
- her arms could be used in more ways to make these more "sexy" or "vibrant". eg. over the chest/breast or in the hair. Even in the air (with pointed fingers)...
- having done a fair amount of dancing myself, I really notice limp fingers.... if she was to extend her fingers in a way that the dancers do, I feel that this and the other points would make a big difference.
I would love to see some more shots of this model if you get the opportunity again.
