Best wife shots? I would post shots of my best wife, but I'm afraid my current wife wouldn't like them. ;-)a:-)

Is that on location? The lighting makes it hard to tell, but obviously the rocks and roots near her are real. What did you modify the lighting with?

The exposure level on her is a tad bright compared to the background. Try bringing down the exposure level on her by about half a stop and the whole subject to background ratio should appear more harmonious.

I have seen all the photos you post of is lovely lady both here and in the G&N section.
She is a very very gorgeous lady however I find that is where it ends with your photos...not being offensive but you could place this lady anywhere and she would be stunning regardless of the background...however that said the setup and background etc show the true talent of a photographer.

Push your creativity.....you have a stunning beautiful women to work with take advantage of that and get creative!

Thank you for the kind words and critique.

I used to take more "serious photography", including professional gigs, where assistants carry my entire photography gear in giant cases/bags with me to locations, staying up all night planning the shots by drawing diagrams of the location and where I'd set up the lights, the exposure settings I'd use, testing them out in my studio, etc. But you know what? I didn't enjoy them nearly as much as when I'm simply shooting casually, in daily life, capturing moments that don't require too much careful forethought. Elena also enjoys the more casual approach too, since my "serious photog" mode often can be overly critical and she'd feel pressured. By keeping it casual and fun, it becomes simply a part of our domestic bliss, instead of some kind of mission to accomplish. I know I can take "better" photos, but my creative ambition is focused on writing novels at this point in my life and photography is purely just for capturing Elena and recording her in our daily lives. We're not going to go out of our way to try to make "great photography" because we've done that years ago and it wasn't nearly as enjoyable as keeping things casual.

That isn't to say I don't give it any thought at all. Within the parameters of being casual, I do try to be mindful of composition, colors, lighting, her body language and expression, her hair and clothes, and avoid unwanted background distractions when convenient to do so. Sometimes we do go beyond the boundaries of casual shooting and strive for more, but we don't plan on it or force it--it's really more of a spontaneous feeling. If we're both feeling a bit more ambitious at the same moment, then we just naturally go for it. But more often than not, what I'm shooting is really more like casual family photos and not "serious photography."

Out of curiosity, are there photos in my gallery that you think matches what you hope to see me shoot more of? Can you tell me which ones? (You can just right-click on the the thumbnails in my gallery and copy/paste the links instead of quoting the full images, so we don't distract from this thread too much. You can also send me a PM too if you prefer.)

@Lunatique: some of the backgrounds of your pics have some random clutter but to be very honest...id personally rather you continue with your current spontaneous unposed picture frequency keeping it fun and unstressed rather than overthink it.

Capital colour harmony and rendition.
