Hmmm, that is what a wide lense does. I think the perspective is fine, the idea of leading somewhere seems to be pretty evident but like she seems so riggid aside from the perspective.

surely this is with a wide lense...or something near it. This is something of personal taste.I don't like to see womens with big (don't know what to say) ... foot...

For me, if she moved further towards the camera so that it showed from her ankles upward, that would be better. I like the idea of the framing and perspective, though; I think it leads you into the photo nicely. I think that the pose is a little forced. For me it seems like at any moment she will keel over to her right!

However, I certainly think that it's worth persevering with this idea of perspective, as it is engaging.

Best,

-Ben

Would be good for a foot fetish magazine! If you like that sort of thing.... :roll:

I am trying at the moment to convert my basement into a studio/darkroom and hope to get some of my shots up soon.,..

I saw this movie.... "Woman With The Ten Foot Legs" No, no, no... Never mind that was a different movie, "Women with Ten Feet"

Seriously Dustin. The light certainly isn't flattering. Nor is the pose.
I would think a perspective, just a little to the left would stop the feet jokes.

PS: You knew i was going to do a PS... I think it needs a little more... Saturation ! No. Just kidding. B&W That's it... Just the ticket.

i have to agree, neither the pose nor the lighting is all that flattering. also her head seems tipped back quite a bit and generally that is not a good perspective.....there is a lot of awkwardness in this shot, partially yours and partially hers but over time i'm sure you'll come up with something fabulous .

In my exprerience shooting females and talking to females, the feet and hands are a very important feature and should not be enlarged. These features help to relay femininity and daintiness.

I thinka pose more like the fairy image I put up would work well here of course without the fairy outfit. Model sitting more on the side of her hip, holding up with one arm, drape the other arm, lower legs pulled back under. Go from there to proped up on one elbow, hand under hair so she is in more of a laying down pose.

She could simply tuck her lower legs back under and tilt the head differently and it would improve the shot.
