Bettie Page is a legendary cheescake model who remains popular despite the fact that she did her modeling more than 50 years ago. She was good looking and had a nice figure but there have been many models before and since who did, too. What made Page stand out was the fact that she seemed to be completely comfortable doing what she was doing. She looked like she was having fun.
Too many models look bored, or look intimidated, or look outright terrified, and I gather that some men find that sexy. Not me; it just makes me uncomfortable. I want the model to look like she is enjoying herself, like she's happy to be there, happy to be doing the things she's doing, in the (lack of) clothing she is (not) wearing. I like looking at women but I don't want it to be something that they hate.
Of course, when it's fan art we don't have to worry about that, I suppose. They're just drawings. But that's still how I feel about it. So today's search term is "happy".
Of course, it's even better if they are happy and they're stark naked.
I've never understood the Japanese fondness for women who look like they'd rather be anywhere else.

In the one-and-only group shoot I attended, the model actually thanked me in the middle of the shoot for giving her feedback and compliments. The rest of the group were just silently taking pictures, and relying on her to come up with poses and looks. Most of them had shot her before, but never built up any kind of rapport. Which pretty much sums up why I'd never do another group shoot.

There's a New York photographer who did a lot of work for Playboy in the Nineties, and some models loved working with him and seeing the results. Others thought he was a creepy perv and hated the way their pictures turned out; they'd rather fly to Atlanta on their own dime to work with Playboy's other major East Coast photographer than let this guy point a camera at them. You can usually guess which camp a model fell into based on a single picture.
