....lovely visages etc throughout your gallery!!

However....IF you or your models are attracted to art,
and the concept of stock references....
and the possibility that they will appear
in art with a long shelf-life --- I suggest
that full-length shots of your models will be 
most useful, esp in generic backgrounds.

Consider the
 - perhaps - leading model on DA - lockstock - for 
an idea of what is most utilitarian: classic poses, in a 
complete range of costumes, or the figure, of course,
also in a wide range of classic poses..... It is relatively,
very hard for digital artists to use modern glamour poses,
for sock --no matter how lovely
the visage, etc....and I think this is 
fueling the use of 3D models, who either the artist or a guru
can set in any pose... I have had to resort to that, when I would've
much preferred your lovely models in white or classic backgrounds,
in classic poses..... Your photography is splendid, and of course your models
are of the highest quality.....but.... consider lockstock's range..... and how widely her
stock has been used...

I appreciate how well meaning and courteous you are, but I admittedly cannot figure out what you are saying, though I have read your message three times. I don't see what "stock" has to do with my attempt at creativity and art. If it is the home that you object to as a background, should I then do what everyone else does in majority?  One of the greats nude photographers of our generation Helmut Newton said ... " a woman does not live behind a white sheet of paper".  I try to compose my works in more natural surroundings.

Sometimes you run in to someone that thinks that you should be doing what they consider to be important. There are so many people shooting for stock now that it has become worthless, so really photographers should just leave it for amteurs. 

What at he failed to see in your photo is the story that makes it a part of life rather than a generic nude for someone else to manipulate. Stock is an undervalued template to be sold, art is something else. As for longevity, I don't think his concept would have meant much to Leonardo. :)

Well, I appreciate that thank you. I don't think that the gentleman meant any harm, but I do indeed feel disappointment at his inability to recognize an attempt to create art.  Thank you for passing by.
