Shot forever ago – edited today… I took this back in 2005 , never touched it.. hmm.. Gave it a re-edit and found an image in it anyway… as I have said before the re-eval of a long time set of works is worth the time if not for anything to learn how styles and tastes have changed and see what skills you can use to play with old images….
+Brent Burzycki Interested in your thoughts on why this was not worthy back them. As always really appreciate your sharing (maybe if she drove a Bently…with an "e")
+Terrell Woods quite possibly because I was an idiot… or back then in 05 I was more focused on shooting women with their clothes off than on.. This was one of the sexiest shots she took back then, nothing more was ever taken off etc.. I was using this shoot to work on some posing skills that I to this day still suck badly at…. this shot might be even a little cleaner if I cropped out the hand and knee.. also my editing skills back then were less well not that they are epic now but less refined might be a way of putting the awful use of too much blue etc…
styles and personal look change much with both society and self.. photography has been an interesting journey, but simply my own personal tastes have changed… I used to only shoot with girls my age.. now that I am older I find I am still doing that… which I know is partially because my tastes on what is sexy has also changed…
Human nature.. sure.. I would not throw a beautiful 18-25 y/o out of the studio – but in many cases when the model is young enough to be your daughter it is a different set of feelings in images..
Fantastic portrait of a beautiful lady! I wouldn't crop out the hand and knee, I think that would reduce the attractiveness of the image! Thanks for sharing this fantastic work!
