Well. Hmmn...Its different. Nice clear colors. Wow, I just really don't know how to respond to this. I think the one-eye-closed, one-eye-opened is kinda putting me off.

hi there,

 

this was my entry in a contest run by some aspiring fashion shooters.

the theme was "a model with water"

 

my original idea involving the little block letters was to make a

slab of ice with the letters imbedded spelling out "hot," which she

would hold between her teeth. when the ice melted we continued on

with some variations like this one

 

i was trying to be different than how i imagined most would interpret

the theme and to make it relevant to a context, like the sweltering

summer, along with the double meaning of the word hot

 

so my question is how do you think i did given the theme, and in

conveying my take on it? also, what do you think of it as a photo and

is it something you could see in a fashion editorial spread or an ad

of some sort?

 

lastly, please, please, please leave me your thoughts as opposed to

just numerical ratings, rate if u want to, but explain your

thinking/feeling in arriving at your ratings

 

thanks a lot,

aaron

I like this image. I would agree, i don't really like the eye much, but it puts me off a little less than amy's photos. I think the lighting is great for the capture you wanted. the model preping is very good too (ie wet hair face heavy red lips.) I think you need fine tuning, that's all.

I quite like the spunky photo but for an advt. the non-symmetrical eyes can be a -ve. Lighting, pose and colors are hot, the spelling out is perhaps redundant!

thanks for the comments people

 

i'm surprised that the wink bothers so many people, to me it's one of the main things that makes the picture, it was spontaneous on maria's part, not planned.

 

aditya, i gather "-ve" is shorthand for negative? not sure i agree with that, i mean obviously if this would be used in an ad it would be one where the wink conveyed or helped convey the mood or message they would be trying to get across... lots of ads are irreverent or ironic or sassy or spunky to use your word... also, ID magazine, a fashion/culture/lifestyle magazine from england has been featuring models on every cover winking like that for 10 years or so, i don't think they continue with it because it's hurting sales

 

thanks again for the feedback :)

Aaron, the wink does not quite get across as a wink, not quite sure why, but the eye just appears non-conspiratorally blinking. Regardless, the chutzpah of both the photog and the model comes out very well, and the pic is eye catching.
