Hey everyone,
I did a very short 10 min photo shoot with Memphis Moonshine. She put her favorite in her portfolio, but I too love the photo- should I also put it in my port? Would feel like I'm stealing her thunder.

It's weak, IMO. Flat lighting and badly washed-out.

Posting the same image won't steal her thunder. Models get far more attention for a given image than the photographer does. If you're concerned about drawing attention from her, just link the image back to her.

It's cute with a playful eroticism, I can see why you like it.

It's not going to hurt her at all if you use it in your portfolio. If you credit her it will send a few more viewers over to her portfolio. So, it would probably be helpful.

Thank you, that's exactly what we were going for. She said she had too many "sexy" photos in her port so we decided on "cute".

Thanks for the advice.

Does anyone get bored of seeing images over several profiles?

If you want to post it also, do so. I have had photos that were in both mine & the photographer's portfolios & I have noticed that as the model I always seem to get as much (usually more) attention for said image.

As a side note, DAMN I LOVE HER. I think she is just the most gorgeous thing ever.

Yea she is awesome- just a little hard to schedule. But hey- 10 min shoot and I got all the shots I needed!

Your port is awesome too! And dang you're only like 60-70 miles away tongue

Not if the images are good.

I presume you meant 'portfolios', a profile is the written stuff.

Today it was featured as a daily deviation on deviantart.com
