Wow amazing set
I see it as a good thing the photographers have their own style. It'll be interesting to see how many of the complainers can keep away when the next set is produced.
Ahhhh... I see you haven't been actually READING the complaints... because if you do, you'll note that MOST of the complaints (not all, but MOST) are NOT about Charles's style, but rather, the extreme low light in this set which makes it very difficult to actually SEE what the model looks like.
Hopefully your experience is different from mine, but I find that my sense of touch is not very compatible with photography...
Goddess Noel, what a beautiful sexy woman, with a perfect wonderful body. I love her in that red lingerie! Just the thought of her stepping inside my door in that coat, with just that red lingerie underneath, and then revealing herself to me, the way she does in this set…That’s what my sexual fantasies are made of. Love her, love this set!
Noel is in the top, of my top 10 favorite MA models..!
Beautiful, I would like to see Noel covered in oil
ok, where to start?
The model: I am not a fan of dark skinned girls, but she mightbe pretty. Too bad you can't tell. See below.
The setting: I liked it, I like the poses too and natural light? Yes, please if it works out, it can be really great.
everything that could have been there was destroyed by high iso noise.
High iso grain from the old film days was something completely different and not half as annoying as digital noise. Digital high iso grates on my nerves.
Please stop this.
Charles,you´ll go down on History for performing the best photosets for the blind.
Unusual technical skill,that of footlighting.Does not work,even worse with a dakk subject.
This is your most difficult song to view,along with "Ribbon of Darkness".
Try some video footage.Charlie Brown
No other comment necessary... (;
Dang, I like this set. Noel is so beautiful and has a body pretty much unlike any other, extremely sexy. I like the low light, I usually made love in low light so this is very sexy for me. Her expressions are great as in the other sets. Great set!
Wish she'd show more ass
Now I understand your handle.....
It's quite subtle, isn't it? :)
Geez, how in the world could it possibly have taken me sooo long to catch on? (;
great model . Poor photos .
There is so much of this 3/4 portrait cover shot & Zoomed images abounding, I will not be renewing.
Sets like this make me wish there were two sets of ratings: one for the model, and the other for the photographer. In this case score 9 for the model, and 0 for the photographer.
The girl is very beautiful and sexy. The photographer stinks, specifically with respect to lighting, exposure, and location.
I started this when I was the 33rd comment. It simply amazes me to review comments about the photographer. Common sense would tell a person from the cover art, it's a shadow set and an absolutely stunning model. More appetites are being fulfilled here than your own.
To be fair, Charles`s photos are getting better..
I HAD to download this set after seeing the cover image. That is one of my favorite images and SHOULD be in every shooter's repertoire.
I also love the lingerie that covers, but does not hide, what's inside; and the naturally occurring front wedgies enabled by the fabric weight. A derriere like Noel - Monique has is made to be shot with a thong nestled between her nether cheeks, thank you Charles.
Great shooting Charles. Please tell Noel - Monique that I think she is very pretty the next time you shoot her.
Thank you K, Thank you Noel - Monique and thank you Charles.
So glad that, by the ratings, viewers are starting to realize this guy might want to consider changing professions, - I think its a shame we are not able to witness fully the true magnificent attributes of this beautiful lady, because I simply don't know what is motivating this guy's approach.
You are quite difficult to please.
I feel like you might complain that The Scream was not painted on black velvet; and that Starry Starry Night does not have any poker playing dogs!
If Hotty says iit´s bad then I´m deadly wrong,and Carles is the best in the world.
I should rate this set a 10 now, just because I know it would piss him off. :)
Yummy chocolate candy!
With a rich, creamy center.
Assumption? you certainly didn't see it!
Good imagination,and a pair of sunglasses,SirThe Seller
I LOVE this set... I really liked the location , of course Noel is exquisite and creating a mood through subtle lighting is what I like doing... I want to create a feeling of reality, of mystery, sensuality ... leaving something to the imagination is key because it forces us to use personal experiences to fill in those blanks... I remember a visit from my uncle ( fat guy with strong French accent ) I was maybe 13... over hearing a conversation he described how he much preferred to see women with clothes partially on... it was much more erotic... That has really stuck with me and I even carry that over to my lighting... Believe me, I really appreciate the folks who get what I'm trying to do :) And I totally understand the one who don't...
I got it Charles! And I LIKE it! Noel anytime you want to come over to my place I would love to wine you and dine you and especially make love to you! But I would probably crumble at the sight of you: Clothed or Unclothed.
Charles, thanks for giving us insight into why you shot this set the way you did. I'm sincerely glad you're happy and proud of it. For what it's worth, I did go somewhat overboard yesterday and for what it's worth, I never did say that this wasn't beautiful, because it is. However, I wanted you to know exactly why some members, myself included, are unhappy with the set, in hopes that it wouldn't happen again in future. I am glad you like it though.
p.s. I totally get wanting to use clothing for a more erotic effect. I really like what you did with Noel's lingerie here. It's the shadows, and dim lighting, and only that that I object to.
We all love things like happiness,pleasure,friendship,some people loves God...things we cannot see.
All you need is faith
And you got it.T.S
Beautiful job on this set Charles. It wasn't just the lighting on the set, it was also Noel's positioning. And also the varying looks on her face when she wasn't looking directly at the camera.
What a model. I blew a load on the first pic
A bit more info than I needed to know!
What an adorable beauty... I am speechless.. Many many thanks for these beautiful pictures Noel... and congratulations Charles, for superb pictures.
Nice set of this ravishing black beauty...such a lovely face and fabulous body including a wonderful set of perfectly rounded buttocks. & those red undies on black skin...mmmmm
I think Charles has used the natural light very well to accentuate Noels's natural contours..& its never a bad thing sometime, to leave a bit to the imagination.
A real beauty!!!
Anyone else reminded of the scene from the movie Boomerang, when Robin Givens opens her long coat to reveal that she's wearing nothing but lingerie beneath? I don't know if that's what Charles and Monique were going for, but if they were, I'm delighted to see it.
No need for an appointment whit the Ophthalmologist,then!The Seller
This is likely a woman of rich and warm countenance were her richness not muted and her warmth not dimmed.
I love the images #100-102, that leg drawn up so sexy, I do wish there had been a full body image with the other leg fully captured at the same time, that would have made for a great contrast, although that gorgeous pussy does more than make up for it!.
Also really enjoyed the little flash in #007 (licence to thrill?) to #010, a lovely glimpse of treats in store.
The updo really emphasizes Noel's exquisite bone structure. A beautiful girl, and a very sensual feel to this photoset. I know Charles Lightfoot's use of natural light divides opinion but that's okay – we don't all have to like the same things! Personally I love it.
This a beautiful and sensuous set of a drop dead gorgeous Noel Monique.
Charles Lightfoot is indeed a thinking man's erotic photographer IMO .
Stunning, Noel is simply gorgeous and I love the styling here, the red lingerie sets off her chocolate skin beautifully, the hair worn up allows us to appreciate the full view of her very pretty face and the heels remaining throughout is a massive turn on, Charles presentation is fantastic and I really want to see a lot more from these two, Charles' balance between artistry and explicit imagery is for me the exact balance of what I want to see here and Noel is my absolute favourite of all the models he has presented and I've enjoyed the others a lot!.
Noel Monique is a truely magnificent looking girl.her facial expressions are just phenomenal and her body is like molten cocoa butter just superb.Mr lightfoot has created a masterpiece and Charles the choice of RED lingerie was an inspiration.10.
Good on you Met Art!
Iam sorry but how sexy is that first shot it is so erotic and exquisitely done and yet Noel and Charles sit on 7.06,This photoshoot is a CLASSIC.
However it is plain to see that is not what the average viewer wants to see. As long as Mr lightfoot would rather please his own tastes than those of his viewers the low scores will persist no matter who is the model. The simple fact is this is commercial art and people coming here, generally speaking are not looking for art they want to see gorgeous women naked Period! SEE being the operative word here. If I am going to have to us my imagine to fill in the blanks then why not just head down to the mall?
Use my imagination My fingers were ahead of my lethargic old brain and the ADD kicked in.
You have lost me hipshot131.
I'm a photographer and - trust me - this is NO classic. He's pumped up the levels to compensate for lack of detail in the dark areas (i.e. the girl) and just produced a noisy mess with no blacks.
Precisely! Greg42 I too am a photographer and it is that unavoidable noise, loss of color depth, graininess and loss of detail that is a turnoff to me.
I would suggest that the low score this set is generating (so far) has to do with Charles' love for natural lighting. This is an honorable artistic choice, but fidelity to this standard is going to serve his darker-skinned models less well than the lighter-skinned ones, IMO.
I love you Fer even though you have been mean to me.All frivolity aside this girl is just mind blowing.
You're right, Noel is very beautiful. (: That's why I want to see her... not a shadow where she is... (:
That is one amazingly beautiful young woman. So firm and perfectly formed I am very aroused by her beauty. It is not often you see a woman of color who is so perfect in every aspect. A rare and precious beauty and we are lucky that she chose to enrich us in this way. Thank you Noel and nice work Charles.
Noel Monique is a beautiful woman.Period.
She is indeed!
Please forget your complaints about Paromov,Sir.At least you´re able to see something.
Masterful use of natural lighting to hide the imperfections of the model.
Why make it easy to see her?
Lightfoot uses the artistic approach, which saves on energy and his electric bill.
Not LOL. Noel Monique deserves a better photographer.
More to the point: while there appears to be considerable evidence to suggest that Noel is a beautiful woman ~ plainly spoken, it's difficult to SEE to make certain.
You are better at plain speaking than I am.
I was trying to be poetic in my criticism, to match Charles Lightfoot's style.
I agree that Noel is a beautiful woman. Lovely face, fantastic body.
It's worth looking at each photograph, to study her beauty.
I guess I'm just lazy. I want each photograph to display her easily to my eyes, without a lot of study or effort.
So maybe there is value to Lightfoot's approach, in that it forces you to focus your attention on the set.
I definitely think she is one of the most attractive models at MetArt. Which has huge amount of lovely ladies to enjoy.
Aya, I am not averse to the use of "natural lighting," so long as the lighting that is at hand actually illuminates the model.
When the model is swathed in shadow moreso than illuminated ~ I have problems, the more so the more I am interested in the model.
I don't want the artists to go against their personal aesthetic ~ but, I DO want to be able to see the model.
If I had been Charles, I would have taken a few photos, taken a look at them to see if they were turning out OK, said to myself, "Gee, the lighting is just a little too dim today. I guess I'll use some extra illumination today, and then hopefully next time I'm shooting with Noel, there will be enough ambient lighting for me to return to my preferred style. But I want the members to be just as happy with these photos as I am so I'll make that sacrifice today."
One of the best things here and the one I like the most is to read and learn from your writings,bro.
How was I to know I´d find amazing people as you and a few others at a porn website?
I know,I know,"softcore"...The Seller
Well said, Seller! And I return the sentiment. (:
It's great to see Noel Monique back again for a third set. She has the loveliest face, beautiful eyes and smile.
Charles Lightfoot has been criticised by a few (me included!) for the soft low-light style. Hopefully by now it's understood that it's a style, not an exposure mistake.
Just because it's a "style" doesn't mean that it cannot be a mistake, particularly for certain models who are going to be less easy to see in this style than others.
If it's intended, then it's a style, not a mistake. Don't try to out-semantic me.
I didn't argue that it's good, only that it's intended.
Oh, I agree that Charles INTENDED to use this style with Noel. I am suggesting that, given the low level of ambient light, and given Noel's dark coloration, this particular style was a mistake in this case ~ at least, from the perspective of members who want to be able to see her easily.
Not trying to out-semantic you, DeeDee, just trying to make a point.
Yes it is a style and was definitely done on purpose but that in no way means it's not a mistake. The score indicates it IS a mistake. Though some may like it the majority is saying no. On the other hand the reason K buys his sets is that they ARE different and appeal to a different sector of the crowd. As with Paromov and Natasha Schon He will never be a popular artist because he prefers to go his own way instead. It is their choice and they are here so if you are expecting something else don't open the set.
First,it´s necessary to decide if these are photos or Rorschach test sheets,Sir,with all respect.The Seller
