Once again, an excellent setting for a shoot of an attractive girl, and your photographer blew it.
Way too tight, no chance to see the boat and the water, and a model with a constantly uneasy look on her face.
Another great idea turned into an anatomy lesson. I'm close to cancelling.
The model looks like she doesn't want to be there. The lighting does not sculpt her well. Mostly she has fear written on her face in most of the pictures.
Notregde said: "...her facial expression is just bad". I thought she looked anxious. As a Ukrainian she has a lot to be anxious about (the Crimea, those Russian-supported rebels in the Don-Bas, et cetera.)
I think she looks sad.
Agree - maybe even fear.
I can't speak for Serena, but I honestly believe your concern is misplaced. Serena is not an inexperienced newbie, she's worked with at least 3 different photogs on this site, she's got quite a few sets over on EternalDesire as well with Arkisi, and she uses this expression fairly frequently.
I don't think it's sadness, I don't think it's fear, I honestly believe it's concentrating on holding a smile, while also holding an awkward pose. Especially in this set... try holding some of the poses she does in this set, and then try doing it on a tiny boat. I suspect your face would look something like Serena's, even if you were trying to smile simultaneously....
Definitely disagree. Leonardo would not continue shooting if the model was uncomfortable. What would be the point? Maybe she is just inexperienced and needs more practice in front of the camera.
@Rose - You said, "Leonardo would not continue shooting if the model was uncomfortable", and yet he did a whole set with this awkward facial expression. Shouldn't he have caught and corrected it before completing all 120 photos?
Of course, from what _fer_ said of this being her frequently-used expression, I guess we can just chalk it up to being Serena's version of "model face".
I loved page two so much I paused and checked my personal rating of Serena Wood, and found it was a 10. Nothing here to change that. Serena is beautiful and sexy. Ukraine seems an endless source of beautiful young women. You gotta love that in a country.
Best. Boat tour. Ever.
Wait. I mean...
Best. Boat ad. Ever.
Damn, I hate when I get a better idea after I click "post comment."
Well, she certainly floats my boat :-)
Doesn't this set just make you want to sing
"I'm on a boat
I'm on a mother f__ing boat
I know it makes me want to!
This one is very boring,Leo,though the model is nice.The Seller
IMHO hopefully constructive comments:
Looked through her other sets with different photographers. This set by far has many shots where her facial expression is just bad. Still she is very attractive. Perhaps she needs to stick with one of the ones who can get her mood elevated in the work. If it is really as bad as her expression here indicates that is not good.
I thought I was a harsh critic...... but I liked this series more than most Lenard output. I'm pleased to see an outdoor series that manages to keep such a fine model out of the dirt and revels in pure nakedness.
The light is well managed without the usual heavy use of supplementary lighting.
gigalo, I'm with you about this set. It was closer in and included shots from behind, atypical of much of Leo's work. Decent photography and not a bad set for outdoors. It was decent, surprising me as I browsed through it.
