It's time to get serious. Comment on here and I'll let you know what I truly think of your portfolio. I will let you know your weaknesses, as well as your strengths, and what you can do to improve (at least in my opinion).

Disclaimer: I will provide more feedback on some portfolios if I feel they can be improved. If I feel yours can't really improve, then I won't leave you as much feedback.

As far as nudes come, I can critique your work, but if that's all you have in your portfolio (not even classy nudes), then I will most likely not critique it at all.

Who's ready to play?

Some of your images aren't really good, but then you have others that make up for it. I'd say to cut your port down. Maybe just have 10-15 photos.

Most of the photos you have up aren't very flattering. If you're wanting to be taken seriously, then you're going to have to work with more professional photographers. smile

I do like some of your images to be honest. You defy the image of what society portrays women to be, and I like that. You should get rid of some of your images though because they don't do your beauty justice, but overall, keep working on your port. This one by far is my favorite!!!

Thank you! I was nervous to hear your answer! haha. When you get around to it, which photos do you think I should get rid of?

Like I mentioned before, if you want to be taken seriously, you're going to have to work with professional photographers. I would also recommend to watch out with the hair colors, it can take away from your overall look. Work with a team of professionals (hair/MU/styling), and that way you can get a nice port started.

It's good that you're trying to be different, but your portfolio is not necessarily what MM is all about. I would recommend trying different tutorials online to sharpen your editing techniques. Some of the photos are a bit too edited for my taste.

There are some photographers that have too many photos and it gets overwhelming... but this time around I think you don't have enough. I do like some of your photos, so you're going the right path. Start networking a bit more through here and get to work with professional models who have been in the business quite a bit. The swing photo is phenomenal. smile

Digging your port. Not so much your "about me" section. I would change the rhyme if I were you to something more substantial. I almost didn't want to see your photos after reading that. Also, your avatar isn't as strong as your other images. I would recommend changing it.

Your port is a little too strange for my taste, but I know that there are people out there that admire that. You definitely have a style going on, very Vogue. I would recommend just watching over-editing on some images.

You have some great llamas, that's for sure. Most of your images are edited just enough, but I would recommend cutting out a lot of your images. As I was scrolling down, I just started to feel they were the same photo. You want to just give people a little taste of your work so they either 1) want to see more of your work or 2) immediately just want to work with you. I think you have number 2 locked in, but giving them too much of your work at once can also be a bad thing.

Interesting you say that because I don't use Photoshop.

Thanks for your input.
