I wonder if there's any way to make her arm look less chunky in #5 (any better pose). I'm inexperienced in posing people, so this is a question not a critique.

Thanks for sharing. My comments are from laymen's view who appreciates glamour photography
much like fine art. So hope you don't be discouraged from improving. The title is
"Portrait of sexy Zami".Does it convey the notion? Yes and no.The only picture that get full marks is
#2 BW. I love the hair which accentuates her face and body. Good oval shaped face and proportionate
body btw.

Picture #1- In glamour the eyes always look at camera which imply "Look at me".This is her portrait right? In product fashion eyes are deemphasised by looking elsewhere to highlight clothing.There are exceptions of course.Her left hand is "amputated/cutoff".Arms should be cropped above the elbows if it is done.

Picture #3 - If you want to show face why include the out of focus body? It seems suggestive with her hand between her breasts.I would prefer everthing in focus.Agiain left arm is cut off.Would be better if full body. Btw lovely face and lips slightly apart is suggestive.Nice.

Picture #4 - An abstract normally show a part of the body.In this case camera focus on bra strap
when it should be her hand.Was that your intention?

Picture #5 - Zami's expression is wondering what you are trying to do.:) Model's mood is
important to make great shots.Perhaps not enough rapport is established? Part of back muscle
is showing and also the crease under armpit but that can be photoshopped away but still maybe the camera should shift to the right to hide the back.

Makeup is light which is suitable for Asian face as it brings out facial features.Pay attention
to eyes as dark makeup will even look darker and make eyes appear smaller as Asian have dark eyes.

PS Read up on posing.;)

Until the next time.

Thanks for liking the #4.

Bro go easy on the editing & her bra is slipping down by an inch on #1 which doesn't look sensual.
thanks for comments.

I think she has beautiful big round eyes.
Indeed!!!

We can ask the model to put both hand in front. no problem. we shoot, share and learn together.

Thanks.

Besides switching to another pose, you can shoot at a lower angle. Currently the camera is at a higher angle and the top arm will look bigger as it is closer compared to the forearms.
