Default Very Nice

I really like this photo and the lighting is great. Pretty girl too. The only thing that distracts me personally are the 2 lights shining thru in the background. Just my opinion. Great shot

Agree. I like this photo. One other thing that may improve this type of photo is to turn down the intensity of the lighting. With the intimate clothing she's wearing and lying on a bed maybe less light or side or backlight would add to the mood.

Nice to see you posting again.

Thanks for the input!

I'll try to remember to dim the location next time shooting lingerie.
What's not shown in the picture are the bright windows to the left and behind the camera, which were pretty bright around late morning, when this image was captured.

I guess I could have closed the blinds and had the desired effect...

Cool - IMO the same lights shining through the sheers curtains over the bed added dimension and depht to this image this time:

I really like the lighting in these shots. Soft overall, yet well lit. (I'm not a fan of the heavy shadows and dim lighting favored by many glamour photographers)
My only quibbles are with the cropping: I would favor cropping the first so her right leg is out of the frame. In the second shot, I would crop to about the level of the fold in the curtain, removing the curtain rods and angles of the room corner.
Good to see you posting pretty girls again: I very much like your take on lighting them, and of course, there isn't much I'd rather look at.

Woah love the critique - Agree the crop will make the frame more squarish and loose the ceiling

Kind of difficult to incorporate everyone opinions, but let's try this one then:

Okay. WOW! I scrolled down to this picture and those eyes jumped right out at me and connected like a hit from a sledgehammer.

(I really need to be about 40 or so years younger)

Love the first shot- save a couple of "spoilers".... the background lights have been mentioned, the lamp behind her head is distracting also- and I'd love to see all her legs in- even if it meant a slight change of angle to the model....
The lighting and tone are fabulous...
