Taken in my lounge room with our pride & joy piece of furniture, the 'Mississipi' sofa. GIS_boy had to be removalist boy for the morning and move virtually every item of furniture from our lounge room. I am concerned about the context of the no-shirt issue but when I lie around on the couch, it's not neccesarily in a lot of clothes, particularly in the heat in Queensland. However, I didn't want it to be too suggestive, so I settled with the jeans. Hope there aren't too many comments on this issue :/

The white wall plus white backgroup on the floor constituted the 'studio' set up and flash gun used for lighting. Post: Crop, USM, Levels, Curves, Brightness/Contrast up slightly to cover the crinkles in the white backdrop on the ground without causing too much canabalism in the right of the sofa and finally some desat to remove the yellow tones from the skin that appeared following curves.

Creative shot. Love the sofa, and her partially clad attire. Although she doesn't look like she would be comfortable in this position for too long.

Still, a really great photo. 8

The light is a little too harsh, and the model does not look comfortable in that pose.

I like how you've made the background "disappear" and the couch looks very comfy!

wonderful studio shot, love the blues...maybe a title like: The Comfort of Blue might have lifted it??? Just a thought

Nice and artsy. I like that you are almost one with the sofa with that slight variation of the purply blue of the velvet and the denim blue of the jeans.
