Thank you for NOT photo-shopping an ultrasound picture of the baby onto the woman's belly. Thank you.
But since you asked for opinions, I will start with questions for you, the photographer.
When setting up these shots, what story were you intending to tell?
What aspects of this pregnant woman did you want to depict in the photograph/
- Were you trying to capture the introspective feeling of the woman carrying a life-form?
- Were you trying to capture the sensuousness of a pregnant woman?
- Were you trying to capture the evolving beauty of a pregnant woman?
- Do you just like taking pictures of pregnant woman's tits?
It was unclear from looking at these pictures, what exactly you were after.
The first shot is, in my opinion, the best. Are you happy with the lighting effect? If the picture turned out the way you wanted it to turn out, then it is a good picture for you. The pose was nice and the woman's expression was pleasant. The backlighting of the dress worked out better than the backlighting of her head.
Interesting use of gels in the second picture. What were you trying to do and were you successful?
The next two pictures, confused me as to what you were trying to capture. Technically, they were good photographs, but from an artistic standpoint, the story was not clear... well, not clear to me.
As long as everything came out the way you intended, these are technically good pictures. From an artistic standpoint, everyone has their own opinions.
If you are happy with how these pictures came out, perhaps you could share your thought/design process. That would be a great help to those of us.. OK me, who are still working on composition issues.
