OK, I recently posted a couple of shots from a test series I'm trying to start. This will ultimately be a fine art series studying female form and unique lighting. So far I've been working pretty much exclusively with black light but I plan to do more timed exposure shots and some natural light shots. The first two shots I posted received pretty positive comments from you guys.

' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/26255/thumb/330061.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/26255/thumb/330061.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I finally got around to processing a few more from the same shoot and would like some honest feedback from my DPC family.

Be as honest as you like. I'm still refining my technique and would like some honest critiques. Thanks in advance!

i remember the flowy dress one from before and i love that one still. the butt shot is very interesting. its my second fav. im not a fan of the paint ones. the one with the heart shape around the crotch takes it farther away from art and more towards porn to me. i also dont like the white showing up under the eyes on second to last one shown. the dress and the butt are great. id like to see a little more of the tattoo in the butt shot maybe.

Yeah, I had mixed feelings on that one too... The concept was OK but I think the execution was somewhat lacking. It's not one of my favorites.

These kind of remind me of some of the James Bond movie intro shots. The first two are certainly the most artistic in my opinion, probably more so because of the poses of the model.

I like the pose of the last shot as well, but the overall shot in my opinion is just a little too dark in some area. The blue light on the face and upper arm is nice, but then it gets just a little too dark along the area of the models back. It would have been nice to have the same kind of light running along the curve of the back to draw attention more to her form as a whole.

The other shots don't do much for me in comparison to those three that I have mentioned above.

Have fun working on this technique and take it easy.

It would be really neat to see the tattoo glowing, possibly by tracing it with the paint. Putting more intricate designs in the paint could be really neat.
