Bit of a strange one - Im doing a nude/implied etc photoshoot for my wife in a week or so and I think I struggle to take pictures of women that they think are attractive.. Ive got skills as a photographer but what Im lacking is the womans perspective on things..
If any models would be willing to tell me what picture in their portfolio they like the best and why and want to give me any other words of wisdom I would be thankful..
cheers rayz

My own fav pic from my port...I enjoy modelling Art Nude, this one has a sort of oil painting quality which I like.

Be relaxed , both of you. Decide on her best features & work on them. Give good direction & don't use harsh lights or direct flash. And... don't keep stopping to show her the pics, its very offputting. Show her the good ones later when you have got rid of the bad ones.

If you are working with your wife then I wish you the very best of luck

Get her input, go through various portfolios together and see what she likes and doesn't

Having worked with models, previous girlfriends and my ex-wife for about 40 years, one has to be very careful with girlfriends and a wife, the difference being you tell a model to move this way or that and they realise that you are getting the angles etc right in camera, with someone you are close to, they tend to think you are being critical of them!

If it were me I'd find someone else to work with your wife. I did similar previously, I book a model and studio, whilst I worked with the model the studio owner used to shoot with my other half. It saved me loads of arguments and cold shoulders

If still intent then I finish as I started. Good luck

When going through Hell don't stop!
