    but seriously.. the photo doesn't work for me. The hands are too unnatural for me. Supposed to look sexy? feel sexy? have that sort of "oops" feel? HOWEVER, your face is too relaxed.. The contradiction in expression makes it feel funny..
    Makes me wonder, is she trying to be sexy, show that she's enjoying herself, relaxing, carefree, or what?? The photo has got no specific feel..
    The background doesn't help either way.. the structure on the left is abit... strange. doesn't fit into any of the mood that might be conveyed.. The unnatural PS doesn't help in anyway, should have left the darkened edges out.

    Thanks for your comment! I didn't consider that much as you do..you are really thoughtful. I will reflect your comment to the photographer. Hope can have the more better one in the future.

    Hmmm you can safely assume I was kidding about the too much clothes part. More or less.

    heh let me leave u with this quote that I've seen before.. I need to go study for my exam..
    "If you consider yourself a photographer, take a second to think about your work.
    The camera is a fairly easy tool to operate; it's not about clicking that damn button.
    Think. Imagine. Plan. Feel. Express. Shoot.
    I'll give you a tip that works for me. Before you click that button, give a title to the shot you are about to take. If you don't have a title, don't shoot.
    That will create a state of mind when you always be thinking of the ideas of that you do, of what exactly is it that makes you want to take a photograph."
    Read this from somewhere online. forgot where. Whatever, but it makes good sense to me. I'm trying to work with this mentality nowadays..

    Buying a DSLR/SLR doesn't make you a photographer. It makes you a DSLR/SLR owner

    My pleasure,man..... but would you mind I will wear more clothes?!! hahaha....

    Seriously, I really have the bad experience on this kind of bikini shoot, so I would not take it anymore unless the photographer is my bf or husband. Sorry for disappoint you, hope you can understand my feeling. But maybe it just was I am not professional enough.

    Thanks for sharing! I especially like this "Before you click that button, give a title to the shot you are about to take. If you don't have a title, don't shoot"..... Meaningful and useful!

    well... everybody was a newbie until they learned more & mastered! just keep on learning!

    camera : a tool that captures moments of beauty, but it is the photographer that make it work! without the pressing of shutter button, there will never be a photo!


    four key principles to learn:

    1) holding the camera properly and efficiently.

    2) standing stance / kneeling stance (very important to stablize better)

    3) control your breathing / pressing shutter button at right time

    4) how to use flash in different situation (sunny outdoors or low-light indoors)

    The styling of the model is too "busy", like her hair(long straight and tidy's hair is preferable) and the so much layers of clothing(Simple style with same colour tone's clothing would be better). Also, the colour of the clothing and the background is the same, so it's hardly to outstanding the model("main visual") as it was merged with the background already.

    So what I suggest for this point is--- you could enhance the brightness for the lighting from the front of LHS and to reduce the brightness of the back that to increased the contrast and richness for the pic. Also, put the tracing paper in front of the lamp would make the pic be more natural and look more "cold", because this pic is should be applied by the "cold colour tone", but not the "warm colour".

    Well, it's just my little sharing, I still a newbie on photography and in learning!
