I really enjoyed the video! Actually in my field Trash Photography all of these “mistakes” would be a perfect picture! 😀 I always advice my models to do strange stuff, use strange angles and use silly props. 😀 And for my photography it works. So it’s just again a matter of taste and what you wanna achieve! But you have a couple good points there! See yourself if you like it! http://www.instagram.com/fabzblack

Jan Choc says:

“Dont crop limbs” – 3:13 😀 😀

Michael Sasser says:

Don’t mind the limb I cut off at 3:13. Nothing to see there.

Joshua Wilson says:

How did you get your first model? I have a hard time landing models and I don’t know if it is something I am doing or they are just not interested.

TwO4FivE View says:

3:12 what happens to cropping at limbs or joints?

Tesla Pershon says:

For someone who doesn’t always have the best natural lighting in their studio, what type of lighting do you prefer when shooting boudoir? I have difficulty with the umbrella stands, and was wondering if switching to softboxes would be better.

Some Aussie Guy says:

At least you seem to have a sence off humour! I think having a bit off fun can help in the shoot by making everyone feelings a bit relaxed…

I’d never enjoy looking at a bed where “fun was had” … my mind usually goes to “That girl must move a lot during sleep” xD

Andy Yoon says:

Hey Mike, you’re model is so beautiful it all looks beautiful to me whatever she does haha. I want to see the less appealing woman so I can see the dramatic difference between do and don’t. Thanks.
