[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I know, I've said that my last post would be the third, then I posted a fourth one, but this is the last, I promise. There is a few more, but I'm not going to show them all..))

About yesterday post, Daisy made a mention about the way she looked, and I kind of agree, not that I don't like that shot, but I also found that something was missing in the "regard". That certain spark or glance.
By the way, she was waring some special effect contact glance, and not use to wear some, she couldn't wait much longer to take them out.

Not that I'm trying to defend it by providing excuses, but at this atelier, they were at least 8 photographers, and the model had to put up with what looks like a gang of paparazzis, shooting in groups, flash light and flash popping up, and as my usual me, during that time, I'm taking a drink at the bar, I have the privilege, after a while to have the models, all to myself for a few short minutes, by then, the models are getting a bit tired, also, having them to myself, doesn't mean that I'm alone with them during my time, people watching, when they are not actually asking myself about how my flash works, which setting I'm using....humans can be a real pain in the butt, specially, when it's not the right time, that takes away the attention of the model, and I hate that, but hey, I've got to behave. One guy even tilt on of my speed light, then after a few shot, I notice that my fill light wasn't going off, I check behind, and I saw, that my softbox, was pointing toward the floor.

So yes, if I'm not working in idea situation, the model too, feel pressure. That not the best environnement to get good stuff out of a shoot, but enough complaining, still managed to get a few good one out of it, this particular model, gave me a little more then the other. But I know she was getting tired.

This is "one" of my favorite. Still a smileless picture, but this time I think I caught that "spark" into her eye.

Like all the four previous post of this serie, "full frame" no crop, and no post-process, cause it didn't needed, if it did, I've got no hang up about this. My exposure are most of the time pretty close of what it should be.

I like this "grand finale", including the languid fatigue of the model, resulting in a sensual and erotic image.
In previous reviews, including mine (I come to think that was a good healthy debate), there was much talk from matters of taste, the possible decay of TL, personal preferences and even moral issues and the puritanism of the TOS, etc.
I know I can not to separate a picture of the circumstances of the time when done.
But actually we speak little photography and there is no denying that your post, like the others antecedent are technically very well done and show very good artistic sensitivity.
If we were talking about an naked elephant would have to tell about the photo itself: light, composition, shape, sharpness, details, etc. By the way I like the spotted BG.
I say finally, I really like this post and the way as the light works. The result is very good.
