Let me know if you want to know why on your "Worst" shot.

Return the favor by hitting my port up or letting me know the same.

Thanks!!

Not easy to find a worst in your port - http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pi … 8#25985668

Just wish she was looking into the camera-lighting n photo perfect

Best - http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110625/08/4e06040ddf63c_m.jpg Still loving this one!

Worst - http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120301/04/4f4f6e52608a5_m.jpg I wish your left arm was showing more than what it is.

Great port!!

(Just looking at the images that aren't 18+)

This is my hands-down favorite - the styling and mood are awesome, and the model rocks:

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/090827/02/4a964baa62969_m.jpg

Least favorite is this, not because it's bad, but because it doesn't really fit the vibe of the rest of your portfolio, which seems to really be focused on a glamorous vibe.  Maybe start a folder for men, so they make sense cohesively together?

Facing her towards the sun would help this shot. It would balance out the negative space in the shot and help keep the eye in the shot itself.

It's such a difficult descission, your port is fantastic!
I'd say this is your 'worst' http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pi … 0#29112110
purely because the rest, I feel, are of far better quality and show off your ability better than thise one smile

I'd like to know why my worst is so if that is good with you! smile

Me please! Thanks.

You have so many wonderful pictures in your portfolio, but this one really caught my eye:
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pi … 9#10412189

It's wonderfully framed and photographed, but most importantly, it stands out from other photographers due to its unconventional concept--I haven't seen a shot like that before (gold foil?). It puts you a step above others and would definitely make me want to work with you.


You have very few weak shots but this one doesn't do much for me:
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pi … 5#13077945

It isn't very unique and doesn't stand out from the rest of your work.

Deal! Go for it.

Your port is so full of just amazing photos, that this one, as good as it is, looks "common", but only by comparison. By itself, it's a good image for anyone's port.

Worst - If the model set a better mood in her eyes it would help. This one does not do much for your port though.

Best - Great mood and style... Cool location too!! - I just wish it had a little more light.
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/121001/08/5069b5074a439_m.jpg

Worst - It has a low quality feel to it due to the backdrop and harsh lighting.

Worst - Looks like a moodless test shot with harsh light.

Tip... You are beautiful... Don't get stuck with only a few expressions in your port. Show some sexy attitude! Develop more expressions that you can use on your shoots.

Shooting more can help with that.

Best - Sexy shot... Needs a better mood to go with it though! Act out your styling and atmosphere!

Thank you so much for your advice! I'm still so new to this and have so far to go, but it's such a fun journey. And yes, I struggle to let go of my "worst" shot since it was from my first shoot. Gotta take a deep breath, close my eyes and click delete.

I feel your pain! I just got rid of 100 photos on here. I felt I had way to much to look at and that it was overwhelming to any viewer. Come to DC and I can teach you a ton of things.
