This series won't get boring. Ever. Your model's 'I hope you're having half as much fun as I am' expressions and 'let's play dress-up' accessories make me think of the girlfriends I wish I had photographed more! I see you've used flash in some shots, but it's subtle enough to keep a natural-light tone which is essential here. Love it.
I wouldn't concern myself with people whose only feedback is that something is "boring". To my mind, these are people who tend to have way too much time on their hands. Your work is superb, and the models you work with are lovely. Don't change a thing, unless *you* are of a mind to do so on your own... - Paula
First of all, John, your work is never boring. With each girl and each pose comes a new expressive and emotive quality. Idiots about here on DA..... ignore them and shoot what you love. Those of us who appreciate what it takes to do this kind of work (lighting, hair, makeup, dressing sets, etc etc) will never be bored.
This shot is the best in the series to me her eyes for some reason are distracting in the others while spot on in this one. Not that I don't wish I had half of your talent just being over critical and looking past the fact that there is a stunningly beautiful nude woman in the shot.
Boring? I'm no expert, but with your images John, i spend more time studying them than any other i see here on DA. Hard for me to use Arty language! but i am drawn into the surroundings, along with the beauty of the models, and i love the colour but monochrome is less glamour as you say.
this model is making me crazy^^ i feel so moved by her eyes and i like the light on here hair. altogether very beautiful, but the necklet distract me. i would have chosen a different one, because this one doesn't fit to this model or to the way this room looks.
I Don't see any of your work boring, It's seems to me to be a long process to maybe one day find that one perfect image that captures your style and feelings. I fully understand the struggle. Like you said no single image will please everyone and to be honest would we want that anyway?? keep doing what your doing, as far as Ive seen you are still the most constant image maker on this site..
