Modeling my Scarves at a Local Park
Taking my cue from parvana and her gorgeous modeling pics I tried to do some of my own. With my husband at the wheel as the photographer and me as the model (wish I was a beautiful as Parvana's model!) we went to a local park and took some pics of my scarves. Let me know if they add or take away from the scarves. I don't know if I should keep my shots simple with just a white background and a dress form or if these new shots are worth all the work. Let me know your honest opinion.

Firstly, you are a beautiful model!
Secondly, my honest opinions on the photos (please bear in mind that these are just my opinions and I could be totally off the mark).
I think the first photo is absolutely perfect. The stone, brick, dark foliage and your dress are the perfect colours for a backdrop to show off your orangey scarf. Your pose is excellent too.
The second photo is good - all the colours work well together, but I think the scarf would look better if it wasn't stretched into such a severe line.
The third photo is a lovely pose with the tree and the dress and scarf go well together, but the green shutter needs 'photoshop'-ing out. It takes the viewer's eye away from the scarf.
The fourth photo is lovely.
In the fifth photo I don't think the colour of the scarf is shown at its best - perhaps it would look good with the darker backdrop of the first photo and a different colour dress?
I think showing your scarves 'in real life' is a good idea - customers can imagine themselves wearing them.

I think you have done a great job of photographing your scarves. They look much more real and you get a better perspective as to how they would look on. I think a front on view would also be great!!!Polly

I think the rear view is good for two reasons:
1) It shows the scarf off best
2) A prospective buyer will concentrate on the scarf - with a front view the model's face draws the customer's eye too much

I think you did a great job! I really think seeing the scarf on an actual person helps a lot for the buyers. I do agree, maybe a frontal view would be good too! Then you can see how the scarf will normally drape on a person.

I think a live model is always bette, if it's possible, as people can picture themselves wearing the scarf more easily. Your photos look great!Mo Jackson
