G'day NHL

I could be flippant and make comments about "I'd like to be a director..." but more seriously I think that these two images are really really good

The lighting is excellent - the delicate lighting of #1 esp makes the model appear quite svelte, while the pose of #2 shows how beautiful the model is without becoming demeaning in any way

Well done
Regards, Phil

Number 1 gets my vote. It is a very creative pose and presents the female body in all it's glorious femininity. Great job NHL. The second pose is also very well done.

Funny -- my reaction was that the lighting is not good on the first one. I thought the second was technically superior -- but in all honesty, these two shots are just not up to NHL's usual standards AFAICS.

Thanks guys for commenting.

It's just amazing what one can do by playing with chairs...

I think you've some sharp eyes.
-> This shoot was done with hot lights... And as you can tell the shadows are quite defined, although the lights did gave good contrast (albeit at larger aperture) without any modifiers, but "c'est la vie"!

I agree the poses are compositions are nice but the shadows are not. Number 1 has nice "dramatic" lighting, maybe using only the backlight to highlight the edges of her (like on her arm) with some soft reflection might have worked better?

Looks like you'll need to reshoot.

G'day NHL

I'd agree with Streets on this ... "It is a very creative pose and presents the female body in all it's glorious femininity. Great job NHL"

I can also see where mike's coming from too with ... "Looks like you'll need to reshoot" ~ if you need any assistants, I'm sure we can get a dozen or two :-)

Regards, Phil

NHL can you tell us anything about the lighting specifics ? I just adore #1 it ROCKS! The model is flawless and the harsh lighting makes the photo I think. I believe that if the model was not flawless in her form or complexion the harsh/hard lighting would have failed but there is not very much to fail with here so it's perfect. I can't say flawless but I still adore it, the shadow on her lower rib going down to her hip thrown by the arm is a bit hard, if you could have softened that or added one small fill light it would have been flawless I think.

I agree the lighting is very nice but, and maybe it's just me, on the first photo her left hand looks like it is coming through her stomach. The way her left hand is open with the fingers spread adds to the off look.

On the second shot the rib cage below the right breast also looks a little odd.

Keep up the good work and thank you for sharing the photos.
