Yes, dear friend ShellyLynne, it IS a bit humorous that in general there is what you call "begging" for images going on and then when images get posted the poster gets "punished"! :-) a bit incongruous. Hadn't noticed that juxtaposition until you pointed it out. I had hyperfocused on the individual etiology, (if that's the right word), that I missed that nuanced trend. Thanks for pointing it out! Conflict, drama.

With another colleague, we were doing some analysis of the characters, who was like who, what were they thinking, etc. and realized that our behavior was like that of people discussing a soap! :-)

Update: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etiology That was the correct word to use.

I like Lexie [parallels "I like Ike"].

This is one that got away 😒 [wasn't able to reel on board cruise].

[Geek speak: to post this was a lot simpler than I have previously explained!
If the image is in MM this works.
I used the first link under the image "MM Forum Code"
and used it unmodified (sans prefixes or suffixes, no code concatenated, etc.)
You can Quote this to see the code! Since I don't know how to post the code without it resolving to the image :-).]

BOLO Franny Glass, Oceanside. Pending approval!

[Be On the Look Out for new model profile with the stage name of "Franny Glass" based in Oceanside CA as the profile is pending approval of the MM gatekeepers.]

http://www.modelmayhem.com/2805639

One error on this profile--it's marked as "No experience"
The high caliber of this profile is inconsistent with this self report :-)😊

She is a newbie.
Please be very nice to her!

BTW, shortly it'll be exactly 6 weeks since sailing.

Now to celebrate the lovely talent we had on board!

It was a privilege to work with these models, many of whom have much more experience than I do. I thank you all for your beauty, your creativity and for teaching me a few things as well!

I've decided rather than just post the images, I'm going to offer some insight into the model or how the shot was done or just some behind the scenes info!

Shelley Lynne 697939  Thank you for your love, support and understanding, without which none of this would be possible!
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q84/shelita3/CruiseandLA019_zps85d69908.jpg

Anzhelika Yakimenko (Lika) 1727460  This shot was done with two 580EXii speedlights, one mounted up high on the right with a 36" shoot through umbrella and the other out of frame to the left for some fill. Balanced with the ambient light coming through the window. As far as Lika goes...what can I say, she nailed everything!
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q84/shelita3/Lika2184a_zps70726014.jpg

Chanel 98288  The dress Chanel is wearing is one of several I brought along, as soon as I saw her, I knew she'd look fantastic in it!
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q84/shelita3/Chanel296crop_zps0ab78b1f.jpg

Alexandra 1291915  Alex is a sweetie, there is nothing fake about this girl, she's fun and brings lots of personalty to the shoot and she's cute as heck!
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q84/shelita3/Alex4095_zps67ceaf0f.jpg

Desert Beauty 105641 Point the camera at this girl and she just turns it on, we got this shot less than 5 minutes into our first session together!
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q84/shelita3/636e1192.jpg

Michelley T 2101782  Michelle is absolutely adorable, full of positive energy and really fun to work with!
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q84/shelita3/Cabocruiseshoot117_zps5dfb1eb1.jpg

Jessica Marie 2271552  What you don't see here is Shelley low out of frame holding Jess's dress down as the wind kept blowing it up!
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q84/shelita3/Jessicasunset_zps085eb751.jpg

Amelia Simone 2277933  The way Amelia moves through her poses, the angels and lines she creates, the way she places her hands, is a thing of beauty! She's such a sweetheart as well!
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q84/shelita3/Amelia228_zps2db1355c.jpg

Maria Cedar 99243  Oh Maria! I enjoyed meeting and shooting with Maria, a beautiful lady with an amazing figure!
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q84/shelita3/Beauchcruise050_zps1e893d5f.jpg

Tina Marie Desaro 47584 Last but certainly not least! Tina is another model who's fun to work with and knows what she is doing in front of the camera. This shot was taken in Cabo at the pool with the swim-up bar.

I only shot about 1/3 of the models attending but they more than made up for it! Thanks again ladies, more pics coming!

So... this is what Trina has been up to... I got pulled in as a sub on the second day. The rear tire popped and needed to be replaced. Yes, that is the back of my head at the rear of the bike.

I just got back from an intensive week on Lake Powell with absolutely no internet or cell reception, only to find that these fabulous pictures were all over the internet. Since the cruise, my life has been absolutely incredible and crazy. And now, I might actually have the time to start messaging some of you fantastic photographers.

It is great to see all the gorgeous art coming forward, whatever level the models and photographers are at, it was a superb chance to network and develop our talents. I'm sad to see all the drama. I know some of it is superficial and some of it is due to actual wrongs that need to be addressed. Kudos to Gary for stepping in, and I am in full support of the new format for next years cruise in which the group shoots will actually be for the group.

Looking forward to seeing more!

You are most welcome.
MANY, many have helped me in so many ways. It's really incredible when I reflect on the quantity and caliber of people who have contributed to my photographic endeavors in so many ways in so many places in the US and elsewhere. Sometimes in front of the camera, sometimes behind it, and sometimes just musing.
