This is still my favorite shot from your port:

(hoping I did this right)
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/121119/22/50ab2631287c2_m.jpg

To me, the composition is great, lighting, DoF leaving the background interesting but not distracting, good detail, intriguing expression from the model. Just a very good photo.

EDIT: Yay! I did it right! LOL big_smile

Hi David! Thanks.. I like that one a lot too!

For you, mine is this one:

I love the negative space, the sensuality of the shot and smoothness of the skin. Great capture!

Simply cuz It's the first one that drew my eye. Composition is good and the lighting causes a dramatic/mysterious look. it looks like there's a story to the photos.

Thanks! That was a fun shoot, we were going for Lady Gangster on that one.

Of yours, I like these two from your port:

But I think my favorite photo of yours is the one on you profile page. I love the look, composition, and edit of the shot. Good job!

I was torn between this and the Vampire Slayer one but I picked this on color, natural feel and nice lighting. Hopefully I did the image tag right.

Fo you, I like this one the best. How a model can have all of this motion going on and still look beautiful is beyond me. Any action shot of myself I've ever seen my face was in total spaz mode.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110625/08/4e06040ddf63c_m.jpg[/url]

A close second was this. I love the pose, you're showing the clothes well but I can still see your body under it. Also, THOSE EYES! Super engaging.

ANTM had a episode on "random acts of modeling"- Looking amazing doing every day things. This photo nails that. It's such a simple idea- lighting a smoke- but you look stunning from head to toe.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/2604644#27800803 (18+)

I like that it tells a story but the story is fairly subjective. I can think of a number of different themes that would tell this story. I like that I have to think about it a bit- it's not in my face. Also, I admire you posing and being the way you are. There aren't a lot 60 year old women that would pose naked. I tip my hat to you!

Thanks! For the record, I would love to shoot with you when I come to NY. I don't do nudes but I think we could make some cool shots together!

I left you some comments but I think this is awesome. The stockings, the angle, your pose, this shot is firing on all cylinders.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/1675193#18530236 (18+)

Also, I'm usually not a fan of B&W mixed with color shots but this one really works for me. It's expressive, I feel kinda sad looking at it.

Well, I'm a good ways away from the city... but if you ever find yourself coming to my neck of the woods, or willing to make the trip, drop me a line and let me know! I don't only do nude work, although it's my highest demand from photographers (Shocker. Right? haha.) I'm interested in many different fields of modeling. Nude just happens to be the easiest and cheapest for me to pull off, along with the most popular.

Thanks! I need to go back and play with the colors a bit but I like this one too. This was literally the first photo I ever photoshopped!

Your bio says you only shoot film, is that true? I tip my hat, nice work!

For you, I had a hard time picking. One one hand, the lighting, expression, makeup and concept really work for me in this one:

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120614/06/4fd9e24525b61_m.jpg

On the other hand, this is the type of dark imagery that got me into photography in the first place. I wouldn't say this series is the best technical shot in your port, but I love the concept and I love that it's not entirely clear what's going on. There's some interpretation required from me to put the pieces together. I love this!

I've actually looked at your port before after you posted in other threads. I think this is easily your best shot. I think you have an angle, and when you hit that angle you look amazing! I only wish I could see both of your eyes. This is a great capture though and I look forward to seeing your next shoot!

It's hard to pick because they're all consistently high-quality, but I think this one. The man in the background makes it so intriguing for some reason.

Yeah, the tech quality is terrible as that series are frame grabs from 16mm cine film.

Anyway - thanks for the input! smile
