Let me start by saying - this is so true - whatever it is: "明日はないと思って人生を生きろ。明日に何が起こるかわからない。" Some day I will even understand what it is!

I loved the way you play with lights and shadows. Some of the portraits are awesome.

I am gonna say you should charge $65/hr

It means, "Treat every day as if it were your last, for you never know what tomorrow will bring." Haha.

And thank you, I appreciate it.

So, I guess my $250 is overcharging? Hahaha. tongue

Your conceptualization and themes are very nice and pleasant to the eye. I feel your lighting needs to improve a little especially when you are outdoors. Have you used reflectors?

I shall say $30/hr

My rating of retoucher is done with before and after pictures. You have only 4 pictures - w/o any before pictures. I am gonna say you work on TFCD to build your port.

In my mind your port is porpouri of a few awesome B&W nudes along with some amateurish lifestyles. Do you wanna trim down your port that showcases your best ones?

I also looked at your website. YOu have a great eye for beauty, nice conceptualization, but I am not very sure about your lighting and shadows as well as exposure! You may wanna work on them.

You are a pretty girl, awesome figure and emote well. I love this pic in another port: http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pi … 4#14515464

But your port sucks - a port is like a resume. It has tobe best you can offer.

You may wanna work for less (like $40USD/hr) to get your port going.

Joris:
I like to see variety in a photographer's port. You are very good at B&W - but why not expand into other genres too.

Dont get me wrong - I love your port especially this: http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/32674233

I am gonna say $65/hr

More light: Please be wary of too much light - some of your pics seem to have over exposure/too much brightness. Also do you wanna revisit your cropping?

I am gonna say $35/hr.
