Well, i don't think I'll be doing that again in a hurry. Fairly sure I will be getting some funny looks in the shop i bought the tights. There are tights but they are hard to see in the b&w. This shot isn't perfect, the background could have been ironed for a start, but in my defence I am a student so haven't touched a iron in about 3 years. There are alot of things if I had the time I would improve, and if this were advanced editing there is alot i would have done

the lighting and exposure on this photo could be better, as the details of the guy's jacket are completely lost. It's also somewhat predictable

Only a little advice... iron the sheets before putting them to make a bg...
otherwise... good pic.

'a la Sharon Stone, maybe should have had his legs parted a bit...with less focus on the legs & knees?
wish the backdrape had been ironed.

For me, what really kills this shot is the background. I find it very distracting from the subject.

cute idea! it seems a little too cropped in for me though.

Nice shoes, but posture and expression not convincing.

I think the pose and expression are perfect. The backdrop needs some work, though...ironing and moving out from it a bit would help to blur it out if you work with a large-enough aperture. The square wrinkles really kind of kill the mood you have going, but I'm no expert on studio setups anyway. The pump hanging off the toes is an added bonus...really adds to the mood. :)

My eyes, my eyes, where is the bottle with eyewash?

priceless expression, lol!

Other than being funny, I don't know what to think of this. Certainly intentionally bad. The office chair, the creased backdrop sheet, backlighting, nasty legs... I think that about covers it.

Iron to creases out of backgound, very distracting

Yikes! The secret is that you have to shave first.

Background sheet is distracting. It should have been ironed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Doesn't anyone else in the owrld own an iron? and your background is not completely pulled over on the left so it doesn't look right.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

If you decide to use a sheet as background, please iron it. This looks so clumsy. furthermore, the face is fairly dark.

An iron goes a long way!

Iron the back drop after you take it out of the package... I only say that b/c I have been caught doing the same. LOL

Ahhhhh.......to find high heels at that size, huh?

Hey, it is my old boss ;)

The folds in the white sheet background are distracting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

:) Cool picture. The folds in the background are a bit distracting though - maybe just a wall would've worked better.

If people are going to comment on this picture I have to say that they are going to kill you on that sheet. Wrinkles, Wrinkles, Wrinkles.

A little more contrast needed.

03/14/2007 03:41:24 PM
this just made me laugh a lot:) what an expression!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2007 03:22:58 PM
the lighting's a little odd on this one. but otherwise, good shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2007 01:45:39 PM
this would have been better if you'd gotten the wrinkles out of the BG ...

I like this shot, however, the wrinkled background seems to take away from the feel of the shot.

I like this shot for its overall "cult-classic" feel. I don't think that's what you were giong for, but for me, that's what you got, and I like it for that.

Please, please, do not uncross your legs!
