The Chair

The "Chair shot" is a RyPhoto special.

That's some chair. Just curious,,, hypothetically, if a fella was interested in that chair for um... Sitting purposes, where would he find that chair. That chair. Not one like it.

Like your stuff...with respect I have a critique. I think the Strawberry Suanny is my favorite. I would challenge you to incorporate more story and mood beyond "Pretty girl + backdrop."

The Suanny images are strong because there is more story there. She's not "posing" so much as relaxing, and you captured that. Also, they have some depth of field! It feels like we're somewhere, not just in your studio.

Consider having the models interact with more enviroment into the pictures, like the Suanny pix. Imagine if the "Rockin'" photo was taken in someone's dirty, tool-laden garage! Who knows what results you'd get?

I just don't want you to become a photographic version of, say, Shane Glines, who is a pretty girl one-trick-pony. Ask yourself, is this essentially an import car mag cover? I hope you want more than that.

You've shown us you can capture beauty from the body outward. Now show us (emotionally) where these people live. Do they have hopes beyond wearing a bikini? Ask your models. Show us what inspires them. I guarantee it'll show in their eyes, and it will be even more intimate.

You might have to get out of your comfort zone of your studio or backyard, but with your abilities, I'm sure it will be worth it!
