[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Next week I will do a photograph of Crystal's dance group There will be five women intertwined and photographed from above. This shot is the first in the series showing the perspective and lighting. All the camera functions are done remotely through the computer. Focus from this distance and through a 35mm lens will be challenging. Lighting will also be interesting. I think the object will be to have soft light with lots of shadows showing the body contours.

Hello Roger

This is a top view that I find interesting.
The ground fabric is in perfect harmony with Crystal, her skin is perfectly complemented by the soft light.
Warm colors for this composition.
Her glance is beautiful and there is a clear aesthetic.
SO artistic work.
This is the fetal position which makes me think she was really delivered sincerely on camera keeping her secret garden.
I think Crystal dance with her soul.
SO beautiful mood.

Chocolate Photography...very diffrent

God ! she is hot !!

Nice work

Hello Roger,

This is an extremely good photography.
Beautiful model and I like her pose.
Excellent lighting, colors tones and choice for brown background.

Warm greetings and best wishes,

Hey Roger,

I must admit this idea is great, a splendid POV.
The mounting of the camera above is very good, giving a slightly different view then we are all used to.

The low light conditions you prepared are very good, showing indeed very nice shapes and shadows of the model.
The BG is a very good choice. Congrats and TFS.

Best regards,

  • Great

Hi Roger,
What a sweet shot my friend, a well composed under excelent light arrangements shot, the hormony between the model and ground fabric fablous. I love the shot.

Hats off to you SIR.


nice concept n composition !!
regratzz bro..


I will be looking for your next photos of the Crystalīs dance group, because if they come as good as this one, It will be a joy for us to see. I love her pose, her facial expression. She looks sweet and strong at the same time. I am not sure about the color of the cloth, but you are the artist. Thanks!


Hello, Roger -
Amazing portrait with a very sensual and warm feel. Great choice to use this background against her skin tones, which really creates a warm and intimate feel. Her pose is child-like but her expression is sexy. Sharp details of her smooth skin. Very nice overall composition. I am looking forward to seeing the shots of her dance group. Well done.

Boa noite ROger
A touching position with elegance and a good bg.
Body posture and skin are amazing.
My regards

Hola Roger
Fantastico retrato con una iluminacion muy bien empleada , buenos tonos de piel , una pose muy original , una excelente composicion , felicidades

buen fin de semana
un saludo

Roger, IF you had been alive in 1952 I am sure you would have been chosen to shoot the cover and centerfold pictures of Marilyn Monroe for Playboy Magazine. In a different way this reminds of of that photographer's set up and exploration of the female body. Great work!

I love the blending of your subject's skin tone agaist the brown background. A simple pose effectly lit with soft diffused lighting.

Striking image.
