Worst - Your left leg looks like a wartime loss of limb. If you just make sure that the camera can see/show that you have all of your pieces parts then you will be better off. I do like the style and color play on this shot though!

Worst - Don't get me wrong... the idea is sexy! I just don't care for the post work on it. I would also like to see one like this where you connect to your viewer.

Best - This is my favorite photo... I just wish it was a jpeg on your port rather than a mag snap. Still a cool shot!!! Awesome dress and hair on it!!

Worst - I don't care for the comp on it and I feel like the photographer caught you in transition to your next pose. The way your left arm is posed/caught makes it look like it is in a cast.

It would be nice to see some shots with less post work on them tossed in to your port as well. It will help show off how much photographic range you have.

Does not work for me. She looks somewhere outside, but the image is cropped to the right where she is looking to; the arms are cut not in the best places. You have so many better ones...

Hi Jen!! I hope you have been doing well!!!...

Best - I love this set! Super sexy style for you. Great comp on the shots as well.

Worst - Cute idea! I just wish the background had more info in it. I feel like you are overexposed too. It is still a sexy shot though!!

Best - By a long shot! I love this one!!! Great texture and natural beauty all the way around.

Worst - The pose looks very awkward... mainly in the arms and hands. I also don't care for the two fingers sticking up on the right side of her head. I do dig your light and the mood your post work created here.

Best..

I think the model is gorgeous. Very interesting to look at. The B&W and the location make it a killer image!


Worst..
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120502/12/4fa18e9307c0d_m.jpg
Although the models expression is fantastic, theres just something about the pose i don't like. It may be the hand holding her dress. Just my humble opinion. smile

Try to line up some pro fashion shoots with better photographers. Most of your work looks like senior portraits and your actual bridal photos. I hope that didn't come across to harsh... I am only trying to help.

WOW - Love the mirror play here! Very sexy shot of you!!
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30922013 18+

Worst - Leaning forward made this shot look very awkward (foreshortening). The shadow from the flash thickens you and if you are about to smash a guitar make sure your mood matches.

Your worst choice is for sure one of my next 2 or 3 shots to be replaced.
