Technically this photo was executed very well; visually it makes no sense! The pose is awkward and unflattering, her expression is completely disengaged, and the hand is posed literally like a molded plastic doll’s hand!
So much technique and resources were applied to this shot, and so much more could be achieved with those elements! When you are try trying to use male fantasy tropes, they must be of primary interest in the photo. The most compelling point of interest is the action of the model “styling her hair”, which is emphasized by the visual framing of the bent arm. The cliché elements of lingerie, stockings and high heels are become quite secondary. Are we supposed to imagine this is a woman preparing for a night out? (Or even a night in?!) The fact that she must brace herself against a door frame to hold the pose makes the scenario absurd, while flattening her buttock in a most uncomplimentary way.
The lighting and the styling is reminiscent of the best of Playboy magazine in the 60’s. If you look back at that era, you might see something like this, but what would make it successful is that the model would smile at the camera in tacit conspiratorial amusement. That would make it sexy, even if the scenario was absurd.
There is much in your gallery to admire, but this is not up to your best work.
Congratulations - a well deserved DD! The model is gorgeous
The framing with the door frame is a really nice idea! Unfortunately the door reflects a lot of light, causing a white-out in the background. But it also reflects light to the model One thing that might could've been better is the depth of field - a little bit higher depth of field, and the face and upper body would be perfectly sharp as well.
I love how you shot this! It's perfectly in focus and composed wonderfully. I do wish that maybe the background was a little more bright, because I find whatever is behind her is a little distracting. Congrats on your DD!
