^^ This isn't really a dress i use this bed sheet to created a series of silhouette that end up being on invitation for the baby shower which is why it's wrinkle like no tomorrow. Credits to my friend Natalie.

Like the concept in #1 but I think the color isn't quite right. Maybe a little more definite in either direction (red or bright pink) would make it pop more. Great concept though. And I love #3 - wrinkles and all. Its a beautiful drape and nice simple colors. Nice job!

I really like # 3. Did you use one light? I think a fill on the left - just a touch- would work but in all lI like them

Brian - I originally made it a lighter shade because i thought it might take too much attention away from the b&w part. But i agree it does look better with a little more red just not sure how much more.

Mike - i think in that one i had a 580 shooting into the bg. Not sure if anyone notice it but the background i used was really really tiny *as you can see in the picture above* i think it was 53" or something so i had to photoshop the corners and some part of the picture. lol i just order a 107" and that thing is super big. Do you guys know a place that sell something in between 53" and 107"? I can't find anything on BH website.

Novel idea for #1, but I really hate the selective color for it. ..sorry. Great set, though! I love the rest, the bed sheet is really cool and I love the silhouettes! :)

IMO the heart thing and the hands above and below are way overused. Nothing wrong with using them but they're not the great shots for me. And this mom is obvious enough that her belly doesn't need any help!

Love the drape and the silhouette! I'd be looking for more drape and less bra.

The red heart scares me a bit. I dont know how to make it better, but I do know that I dont like the red heart.

I think the selective coloring is off too, did you try smoothing out th skin in that portion, so it's just the heart, or possibly even just leaving it as normal coloring, a soft peach is a nice color for a heart and would look a little more natural.

I was thinking keeping it skin tones too, but wasn't sure how'd that look. I think it will look better than the red though.

She is really lovely.

Truthfully, I find selectively colored spots on shots like #1 to be creepy and unattractive. Sorry. I would also soften up the scars around her belly button on #1 and #2. I know they are there and permanent, but they ought to be minimized.

On #2, the blocks are so bright that you really can't read what they say.. Just barely.

I do like the silhouette - that's cute.


I am super cool n' stuff.

Is she really just wearing her bra? Really? And not even a pretty one at that. I'm really having a hard time wrapping my mind around that, but ok, that's just me. I'd rather see her bare breasted or fully clothed, but the bra thing...I don't like it. I do, however, love that silhouette. very sharp. nice.

I find the first three a little gimicky, but I understand the need to do them. I hate the selective colouring, but I love the 4th and 5th pics. The sheet draping her body and the light is wonderful. The silhouette is super sharp. Love them both. She is lovely, and you've caught her excitement and joy wonderfully. I hope she'll let you shoot her some more.
