Which pose is best? Her lookiing away or looking at the camera? I have wondered about this for years as I pursued photography as a hobby. Are there any composition rules that apply to this? Maybe it's just a personal preference. What is your advice?
This is Lammy trying to pose like Marilyn Monroe in her last unfinished movie.

Patty Lamb, whose nickname is Lammy, has made this meme: it is her reaction to thinking about her past in this life. She challenges anyone to post on their blog a picture (not necessarily yourself) that represents or demonstrates your reaction when you ponder your life so far.
Lammy will be 22 this February 15, the same day as Cheesemeister's birthday, but only about half the age of the old bat! Oh, we say 'bat' because that is her avatar on her blogs.

The background photo is the poison ivy picture that tsduff took for Terry's Timeout Blog.
For Ariel, if you can't understand the spoken words, here is what was said:
"Hi! Do you like my dragon costume?"
"I am Tom. Welcome to the real world! The Matrix got me!"
"They say when you get old, you go through a second childhood. Well, even my voice has changed back!"
The character here is a girl (Aiko 3) but believe me, I was not a girl when I was a child. I don't know how to morph her into a boy unless I buy Hiro which makes Aiko 3 an anime male character.

This is a series of pictures that show how we took Ariel's photo and put it on a backdrop. Then we placed the model, which is like a virtual Barbie doll, on it and moved the camera around. We have to also adjust the lights just like in a real studio. Then we have to dress the model, color the eyes, lips, wig etc. and pose her. Then we have to place props, like the grass and rocks, in the scene to hide the distortion from the bending of the photo. The program is free from DAZ3d.com. They make money from selling models, clothes, props, scenery and more advanced programs. They also have a club where people can upload and show their photos, which they call renderings. You can click on each picture to see it in more detail.

Or maybe it is Robot Gimp. There is something wrong with its left leg that it wouldn't bend down like I scripted it. The joint got twisted or something. Robot limbs don't move quite the same as human limbs. It takes a lot of time to learn all that.
The background is a picture from Terry's Time Out. Tsduff sure takes great photos.
