Re: Nudes with a friend

I'm ok with the missing hand, but clipping off the hair at the edge of the picture is really annoying.

That said, the lighting offers a very nice play of shadows across the body.

Re: Nudes with a friend

any particular reason you cropped off her one hand?  I like it but would have preferred her hand and some of her hair had not be cropped

Yeh, the cropping bothered me too. I was shooting in her living room and hadn't brought any shorter lenses with me so I couldn't get any wider.

None of friends would ever let me take nudes. Nice job.

Any particular reason for leaving the earings in and having the heavy eye makeup? They look somewhat out of place on the otherwise bare form.

Re: Nudes with a friend

best of grouping so far. the last one you posted (the full frontal) seems to be wandering out of the area of "artistic" if you take my meaning.

Re: Nudes with a friend

I like this one and the eye makeup is ok on it but for the frontal ones I would have her take the makeup off.

These are ok but nothing special, the lighting is boring, the model doesn't know how to pose, and there is no real energy. The eye makeup is not needed and distracting. If you have limited space, shoot bodyscapes or pose the model differently.

I'd give this set a C- at best. Look for some way to make your work memorable instead of blah. Think dramatic art, not naked friend.

Just curious, does she know you post these online?

Nicely done.

#2 and #4 are best.  Good variation in poses.  No two are the same.  The model is nude, not naked, and she seems quite healthy. Good lighting.  Good flesh tones.  It is good to have friends.

Hum... On the last one, she look pretty naked to me. I like the #3 (but the framing would have need more attention maybe)

Re: Nudes with a friend

I like the forms and poses for what you posted.  Other than the cropping issues others have commented, I found some of her expressions took away from the very nice photos.  Good to have a friend like her for just a wonderful good body and face.  I would make her my regular model to practice all kinds of shoots.

Re: Nudes with a friend

None of my friends would ever pose nude for me.   So how does that work for you and your friend.  She wants nudes taken and you said i have a camera ?

wish hand weren't clipped

I think this is the strongest image.

I need friends like yours

She'd be awesome for bodyscapes...
