Thread: My first semi nudes.....

  1. #1

    My first semi nudes.....

    Until reciently I have never really been into taking pictures of people; no idea why.

    I tried a few portraits early in the week and this AM we went out and took 6 exposures right after dawn.

    I am neither happy nor unhappy with them... I would like some opinion and critique

    I like the combination of urban graffitti background and "human graffitti".
    Real cameras are measured in inches...
    Not pixels.

    Cool! I agree with dsphotog.

    She's got more tats than Frank's models!

    thanks....she will soon be one of Frank's models

    in the first frame both her back and the back of the car are in focus. I shot this at f16. Looking now I think it would be stronger if I used a larger f stop and kept the focus more on her back and left the car to blur. Not sure.....

    I think they're effective, esp. the third, but reckon shallower depth of field, maybe longer lens, to concentrate more on her tattoo and figure would be good too.

    She should have been in panties... They show through anyway.

    With Frank, she will wear nothing, except maybe her shoes

    I also agree with dsphotog. This is the beginning of what could be a significant and extensive series. Don't stop now. Don't blur the cars. They work too well with the model.

    she is none too happy with the panty lines......

    I thought the tattoos had a bunch of texture as do the railcars. I am still concerned one might overshadow the other but thanks for the nice words....

    BTW: the model is my GF and soon to be fiancee Lori

    Never done it so consider that whilst reading.

    I would like your fiance to dominate the frame and have the OOF areas be primarily be the general shapes of the graffiti rather than sharp.

    You said it first: not bad, not great either.

    *Those* shorts are distracting and unattractive, IMO. That looks like really great body art and I'd like to see more of it/her and less of the surroundings.

    I could care less about categorization, but how are these semi-nude?
