Ouch. Sorry the lighting is so bad. This is my first ever shoot with an actual model. I had no clue what I was doing. Still though, she was really beautiful so there might be something you can make out of this...

There's something about the imperfect quality that I find really attractive. There's a BIG difference between "imperfect" and "bad". To me, imperfect means "real". As you know, photographers Photoshop the hell out of pictures until the model doesn't even look human. Your shots are BEAUTIFUL. Naturally, it helps that the model is gorgeous. I love imperfections, like the dent/scar on her upper arm. I'm wondering if you might want to experiment with "imperfect" lighting and/or camera settings. Learning the "right" techniques is fine, but I chose your picture out of HUNDREDS for a reason: it looked real (not artificial).

Also, I think your attitude towards sharing is very smart (and very nice). I know of at least one very nice drawing based on this picture, and that's free advertising for your page. To be honest, I'm trying to find my muse, and your invitation to use your shots as reference material is very compelling. If I end up doing a masterpiece based on one of your photos, could you show my work to your model? I'm blushing!!

Absolutely! Yes I am also a big fan of imperfections. I really really try to avoid overly Photoshopping anything and I love to shoot in less than ideal shooting conditions for the challenge. I often will shoot with less light so I have to crank the ISO and accept that the image will have some grain. I like the raw, honest nature of more spontaneous and less controlled shoots. It was one of the reasons I was obsessed with Polaroids for a few years. I really liked the lack of control and the challenge of trying to use them to shoot the same way I would with a regular film camera or DSLR.

Thanks so much for the thoughtful comments! Be sure to show me if you create any art based on my work. I would also recommend checking out the new contest in my Journal :)

I have to say that you are clearly talented with Photoshop, so I'm glad you use it sparingly. Your picture of the Death Star gives me the creeps (in a good way)! My brother actually found a piece of the original Death Star in the GARBAGE at the ILM studio in San Rafael in the early eighties! We LOST IT!!! Obviously, there was no proof of authenticity, but we just thought it was fun, but no big deal. OOPS!!
