Behind the Lens – Photo Critique

#BTLcritique #glamour

If mild nudity does not bother you – please take a look and shoot me back comments on what you think, love or hate… I have to say I like this shot…I am not totally sure why, maybe its the story, maybe its something most of us guys would want to see… maybe its to show the power women can wield..with just a gaze…

I want to see how a critique thread works on a offsite linked image…. seeing I know many of us are looking for critiques on images that might not fall into the TOS here..

I try to shoot all my work with total respect to the models…….It sure takes more creativity to try to show sexuality than just blatantly nude shots….

If people are interested in learning more about shooting glamour work like this please join us:

G+ Photo meetup on Saturday November 5th from 1-3pm at the Hilton Long Beach in conjunction with Glamourcon 2011.

    +Samir Osman Yes but I assume you are looking to be able to host the image on G+ – and not on an external site…..

    It would be really nice if there was a way to tag a photo as "mature" or whatever you want to call it, and then you could either opt in your own profile to either see all photos that are tagged that way or not.

    +Bill Goodrich I agree.. – that said the TOS would need to change here for G+ and Picasa to support that…

    I really like how you composed this picture. The framing is subtle and just askew a bit to add a bit of naughtiness. The blue..aquamarine is so nice…not the overpowering blue that is sometimes used. This color draws you (me) in to the photo…and then your model pops off the page. Plus she's got that pool cue…i get the feeling that's not for pool! Once again a provocative photo. Great stuff Brent.

    Excellent image

    Brent, I love the model, the net, the framing and pose. I totally dig your intent, and agree 100% that this results in a sexier shot. I'm not too fond of the turquoise colour cast, but that's just a personal pref I guess.

    +Bruce Walker +Serge Yurovsky +Terrell Woods Thanks for taking the time to comment…they are appreciated…. Its funny to me how when i really like a shot – it does not get the replies I might think it should get – yet when I just toss up a photo I do not think is a big deal the comments seem to blow up… Maybe the thing I need to look at deeper is what people really want when looking at images…

    I think its time to do some experimenter….

    +Brent Burzycki i agree a little bit…but you have to remember there is so much that goes into your shot…you are looking at it with so much more knowledge and history…that even if the photo tells me a story by just looking at it I most likely still won't have the same emotional or visceral attachment that you have. Anyway, you know, and I'm sure have seen when people just praise a photo because the shooter is a pro….i like the idea that we all have different tastes

    +Terrell Woods I think many times the photo is also rated based on the model ad not on the actual photography.. I even find myself doing it on sites like 500px – the photo is overall good but the model is stunning… well – that photo is going to get a thumbs up for me…

    i liked the picture overall,especially such an unique tint to it. But i still couldn't figure out the outcome of the picture if it wasn't that tightly cropped, but on the contrary, such tight crop would suggest intimacy.
