QUOTED IMAGE

nice. Is this straight out of the camera? It looks like a little PP would make this great.

Its you. And most of the girls that are trim love it because they get to show off what your looking atbw!

That's about what I was going to say. Flattering for this subject, not so much for other subjects, possibly. I like the image, but almost wanted more light to separate that area from the background (which would further pronounce it, obviously). Would depend on the intent of the image.

hi JP.. Welcome to the forum!

the short answer is... Get yourself a decent looking, somewhat popular, and most of all influential senior, take some Amazing portraits...make up a senior rep card and let then bring the clients to you. If you will sit down and read this one thread from start to finish you will find out just about anything you want to know.

I think he (and I) would like you to expand on where exactly you meet a young attractice high school girl and approach her without seeming like a total creeper. Then, after disolving said creeper impression, getting her to choose you without a decent portfolio to show her. :lol: Keep in mind, Im a late 20 year old dude with more than a few grey hairs. ;)

not cool.

I try very hard to avoid anything suggestive or emphasize sexuality with seniors. How many mom's or seniors do you think you can creep out and stay in biz. My guess is not many.

I'm sure your comment is completely innocent, but if that was my daughter you would have some explaining to do.

for clarification: I think the photo is fine, but I didn't like your comment.

If you follow this thread closely you will find that Mike has a tighter code in that regard than practically any of us. But there are times when the client wants a shot that is sexy but still tasteful. This shot seems rather tame in comparison to some.

yeah nothing wrong with the shot. I just don't approve of his comment justifying it.

If a senior client wants sexy I would send them somewhere else.

some things are better left unsaid. IMHO If he actually took that shot with that in mind then that is plain wrong. I'm just being honest.

I take over the shoulder shots because I like the more relaxed, candid, lifestyle like appearance. Not to show a specific body part. Honestly. I often shoot that shot tighter to avoid the rear view.

If your clients are happy with that, good. But you have to keep up with whats acceptable and popular with your clients.

People here need to quit trying to judge others who they do not know and use what they think they read here to justify their decision. Things written are not always interpreted as meant. In short, you people need to chill and quit judging others from what you think they meant. Really ruining a good thing.
