I consider your images more tasteful than risque, and whilst they clearly aim to convey the beauty of your subjects the work is professionally done and I don't consider them sleazy at all. And whilst I'd be disappointed if you felt you couldn't share your images here anymore, I'd respect your decision if that's what you choose to do.

I haven't found any of these photos anything but art. The human body is awesome, clothed, naked, all the stuff in between. I'm curious if you dislike the image, or are projecting how you think the model should feel. Is it a gesture the model is making, choice of clothing you dislike or is it disagreeing with an idea of objectifying something? In an art forum, I would expect honest and direct critique not casual comments as the latter comes across as prudish opinion rather than critique of the work. If anything we could start a mature, own work only thread.
I personally detest a very American mindset of be embarrassed, insecure and hide the human body while being ashamed of enjoying it.
I understand you may not be saying this, but short comments without constructive feedback seem less like critique and more like personal discomfort of the subject.
My number one goal is almost always to convey beauty. Beauty of the model, of the location, the outfit, and hopefully the light as well. Anything else is just extra layering almost like seasoning to add a little personality/character. I also dislike prudish behavior and comments. Just comes across as close mindedness to me personally.

LeRolls, If you decide you should stop sharing here, please consider instead moving to a mature themed k-1 image thread.. We could call it, "Post your K-xxx photos here" :-)
Now I want to start that thread, for the pun alone..
An interesting idea but I actually don't consider too many of my images to be overly "mature".

"Honey " love! love! LOVE IT. I'm curious....what do you do with your work? are you published ? Magazines ? Advertising ?
Most of it is content for social media. I have secured model release forms from most of the models so I do plan to release books as well as an eventual YouTube channel.

Please don't. Most of your pictures are stunning, none made me wince, nor did I find any of them to be sleazy!
QuoteOriginally posted by WPRESTO Quote
No, no no! NONE of your images that I've seen have been "sleazy." I was making a general observation that very subtle changes in a model's pose can make a big difference in what the picture communicates - the difference between: here is a beautiful young woman VERSUS come let's have a romp right now. Do you remember that once I PM'd about a pose that was a bit too - how should I put it? - confrontational, or aggressive, or in-your-face, or "are you man enough" - hard to put into words. I did not find that one pleasing, it made me wince. As you replied, the pose was the model's choice, not yours. The vast majority of your images are tasteful celebrations of female beauty, a pleasure to see.
Thanks for the clarification. Definitely was not clear. As far as the image you are referring to I understand what you are saying but it has actually been one of her more popular images.

QuoteOriginally posted by chalkandtalk Quote
OED definition of sleazy:

(of a person or situation) sordid, corrupt, or immoral

This most certainly does not apply to any pictures here.
Definitions are nice when understood.

LeRolls, in my opinion all your photos are top notch pro presentations. Some models & settings I prefer over others but certainly a pleasure to view. Please consider what the one poster stated: satisfy the many; and I am one of those.
Best Regards, Bob

To LeRolls and WPresto,

Thanks for clarifying, Wpresto. LeRolls, you are one of PFs treasures. Please continue to show us what the K-1 and FA* 85 can do with lovely subjects.
Thank you for the kind words. I will continue to share images from my photographic adventures.

I'd almost give the color shot the nod, but this is going to sound really dumb...for some reason the light blue nail polish just makes me like the B&W more. Great shot either way!
