Trying Out New Poses

My dressing and photo session today was primarily for the chance to test some new poses, ideas I got by browsing through the collection of fashion and other images I keep for illustrations. These are all seated or reclining poses...something I haven't done a lot of in the past.

I didn't do the usual digital editing of my face here, just blurred it out. As I said, the emphasis was on pose, not expression...and I had an odd occurrence, as well. More on that in a moment--but first, what I think were the most successful poses:

Now for the odd thing--despite not having dressed in nearly a month, I really wasn't into it this morning. Can't quite say why, but something just wasn't clicking. Maybe it was the wig...I wanted to give the blonde curls one last chance, but I've really grown to dislike it. Maybe it was the interruption of a phone call that broke the mood.

Anyway, I'll be trying this again next week in a different outfit and one of the other wigs. In the meantime, check out these pics and the ones of Flickr and tell me which poses you like best.

I definitely like the last one the best and then the first one after that. As to the mood not being as strong, I think that that's something that just happens from time to time - I wouldn't worry about it.

By the way. I love the outfit and the bracelets.

Yeah, those were the ones I thought best as well. Can you get to Flickr to see my other shots?

Yes, I managed to get there and saw your pictures, but the ones you have posted here I think are your best.
