Seraphim - Stock Reference 29 by faestock
I'm going to use this to call out the entire Seraphim series of stock photography.

First off, Vision: The use of the slip(?) as wardrobe is a grand choice, as it opens up a multitude of possibilities, from Angel to Greek Goddess/Heroine, to Pin Up Girl -- it is simple enough to be adapted to all these, and doubtless more. 5 stars for vision. She knows for whom she shoots.

Originality. The poses are excellent, the use of hands delightful. I'm going 4 on originality, since it's hard to do these sort of poses in a totally new and different way, but she does such a good job at working within these limitations!

Technique: Faestock never disappoints when technique comes up. She is an excellent photographer. Good light and shadow balance, good awareness of camera position, and so on and so forth. Even her EARLIEST stock shows a good technique; she has only improved over the years. 5 stars.

Impact: Impact to me is a very subjective thing. Faestock starts out with a three on any submission, due to the generally excellent technique and vision she always shows. I NEVER expect to see anything below average. That being said, what makes the most impact on me is a combination of the beauty of the individual shots and the potential for use as drawing references. The entire Seraphim line rates consistently at 4-5 for these factors (to me). The clear majority are beautiful, show drapery, poses, hands, feet, and face (all things I will reference) in a well lit setting, with nice but not excessive shadows. 5 stars.

Certainly. My rates, and the sort of things I'll draw, are here…

Commissions

Please note that response time may be sluggish in the months of September and October, as my 'real life' job(s) are in full swing (including weekends).

Oh, my pleasure. I was struck by the food shots. Great shots, great looking dishes. I also saw a couple of recipes and links to recipes, so there MAY have been a very slight ulterior motive.

:D
