Worst - Not enough light... but perhaps that was the mood the photographer was trying to set.

Worst - I don't care for the pose of your hand. If you had it on the right side of your face (your left) it might look more natural. It could make sense to do this for a ring shot or if you had so cool nail work done. I also wish you punched it up with more mood!

Best - Great color play and style!!

Worst - Shooting down on you does not help you out. The photographer does not need to make you look even shorter than what you are. This is a cool area and unique style though. - PS. I love working with short models!

Thanks so much smile When I put that bottom one up it was the only shot I had from that shoot, but I just received more images last night so that one will be getting replaced smile This may sound silly but how do I post an image to my profile? Haven't done it before haha and yes I'm so in love with the shoes, so glad that i bought them!

Best - I wish it was more about you and less about the male model for your port.. That is just me though! Ha!! I feel like the moods should be more confident and sexy on this one... I still dig it though!!
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/121015/16/507ca20147417_m.jpg

Worst - The pose feels very forced or senior portrait-ish. I don't care for the light either. Cute smile and nice shoes!!

Go to a site like photobucket and upload it there. Then copy the image code of the photo you wish to post... it should look like this [IMG]httpfilename
- Then go to MM "mystuff" and edit your profile. Paste the IMG code in your about me section. I hope this helps! Ha!!

Best - I love that this is BW! Sexy shot and nice light. Wish the frame was one inch lower... framing it closer to your hair.
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120930/21/5069213a7bfbd_m.jpg

Worst - I don't think it does anything for your MM other than show you don't mind doing this style of work.

Worst - I like the playfulness in your expression!... I don't care for the image quality and the lower part of the shot dominates this with focus and mass. The jeans pull my eye down and distract me.

You have a lot of great work, but, seriously, your portfolio's weakest point is that you are showing way, WAY too many photos.

Shave it down to, say 25 of your very best, each representing the best of a specific look.
The impression I get from your collection is that you don't know how to edit (that is, SELECT) your absolute best shots from a pile of good shots.

I'm not saying that the impression is correct, just that I believe it's what happens subliminally, except to a very experienced and discerning eye (and you are correct, that would be mine big_smile ).
