Here's a shot I posted in another forum. Hope I don't get in trouble by posting it again. This is the first Black and white I've done, and it happened by accident, but I think it turned out good.

For what it's worth, I've only shot a girl once before...and it was completely tame. I also hated the results because she didn't dress like she was getting pictures taken. I also have 2 unpaid shoots scheduled with a 3rd in the works. All of which are also tame.

I'm anxious to shoot the babe on the bike though...NOT tame...but she hasn't gotten back to me on when she can/wants to do it. :(

I'm wanting to hear about this biker babe! Spill it! LOL

lol. Well basically I was at a club/lounge/bar type deal shooting a live band just for the heck of it. I see the girl walk past me to the bathroom and think to myself "damn I should ask her if I can shoot her sometime." About half an hour later, give or take, I'm taking a break and she approaches me.

(not exact quotes)
Her (looking down at my XT + Grip, 24-70L, bracket, & 580EX on the table next to the other XT + Grip and 50mm 1.4): So you're pretty serious into the photography huh?

Me (drinking water from my Tamrac bottle cuz I'm a geek and don't drink when I'm carrying $2800+ worth of gear around): Yeah pretty serious.

Her: That's cool. I want you to shoot me naked on my partner's Harley sometime. Can you do that?

Me (Nearly choking on my water): Uh yeah I think I can do that. Are you serious? You aren't sh*tfaced drunk are you?

Her: Yeah I'm serious. I'm drunk but I know what I'm asking. Got any business cards?

Me: I sure do. I usually forget to carry 'em but I'm glad I didn't tonight!

Her: Yeah, well give me one. (I hand her a card) Maybe you can shoot me and her (pointing to a friend I came with, that it turns out she knows) getting freaky sometime. (She then does a little dance move with ber body.) I'm bisexual you know. It would be hot.

Then she left. She was definitely serious because she emailed me a couple days later and I confirmed it. Don't think she was serious about the gettin' freaky with my friend part though. She told me in the same email that she's opening up a bar on top of a mountain and wants me to shoot the bikes doing burnouts and such after they're open for business.

Kind of an interesting situation that about gave me a heart attack.

I was just looking at your webpage. Cool photos. We've never been to Hawaii, but would love to go someday. You've got some fantastic photos in your collection. And your wife is a total knockout! She looks like she would be so much fun. You are a lucky man!

Thanks alot Kev, I appreciate the compliment. When you go to Hawaii, let me know and I will guide you in the right direction, we go out there a couple times a year. And yes, I did something right to marry my beautiful wife, the gods smiled down on me :)

First, go here and read the entire article: http://www.glamour1.co​m/tips/digitalcamera.p​hp (external link)
Look around that website, have your wife look with you. When my wife first started posing for me it was tough for her. All the beginning images were tame, anyone could look at them and no one would be embarrassed. We (I) slowly worked our way up to some “glamour” type shots which she didn’t mind showing to her girlfriends. Everyone was impressed and gave her compliments. When it came time for “boudoir” type images, she was already pretty comfortable in front of the camera and knew she would look good. This type of photography is work for both of us. I make it clear that it is not foreplay and we will not do anything she is not comfortable with. She also has the last word on what is printed or posted on the web. I do not argue these points or try to convince her otherwise. I treat her as though she is a client.

All the prints of her I have had made are in an album which I do not show to anyone. She will, on occasion, show it to a select few. We added some prints to it just last night. It is amazing to see how she has changed through the years as well as my photographic skills. She is glad she decided to allow us to create the images. Here are a few, more can be found at my website listed in my signature line. Good luck.

I guess I'll chime in here as my wife is my main model outside of my children. I can say that I've been blessed with a wife who is not only beautiful but believes in me and my photographic ability. While getting her to pose for me is few and far between mainly because of schedules and kids, she is usually willing if we have the time. I am usually very critical of my images and I tend to dislike my photos of her more than she does.

I've found that encouraging her to be involved in the process and choosing what she wears, how she stands, when and where we shoot, and reviewing the photos afterward has really helped her open up over the years and be willing to work with me. She now helps me setup and notices little things that I may not notice that can help make the photo better. Anyway, that's my $.02.

Here are a few shots I've taken of her, I don't know the settings, but the EXIF data should be there for most of them.

Wow, those are fantastic captures Judah. She is so beautiful. The lighting is great and you've shown three totally different personalities through these captures. What a wonderful model. You are indeed blessed.

I love seeing these shots taken by the spouse. It seems that ultimately we capture something special that just isn't the same if you have an outside photographer take them. I know that I try to capture the essence of my wife in certain ways. I may take 100 shots and find one that jumps out and says exactly what I saw and felt when I was taking the photo. I try to show her as I see her, not necessarily as everybody else does. Therefore I believe that knowing the person intimately helps to target that little something that triggers certain emotions between you. Maybe a certain smirk, a wink, the way they turn there eyes towards you when they are trying to convey something. It's that silent communication that comes from within that person. Once you capture that on camera, that shot stands out to us. Those are the shots we post, and in doing so, I think they have something just a little more special about them.

Love all of these photos, keep them coming. Great idea for a thread!

Thanks for the compliments Kevin. To me she is the most beautiful woman on the planet!

I agree with you assessment of how we get a different, more personal touch to our photos because of our relationship. I also think that this may be why we may be more critical of the photos we take of them. We see them in a certain way and when we are unable to capture that specific beauty in camera we tend to throw away a whole set ( or at least I do :) ).

Anyway, like Kevin said, keep them coming. Perhaps I'll post a few more later.

Very nice shot. Love the colors. She looks very relaxed and content. A sign of internal happiness.
