Best - Love the style and the glam factor!

Worst - I don't think this does your body justice... The white on white flattens out your chest and the black skirt draws my eye to your tummy area. I do love the MU, hair, and shoes!!

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 ).

Best - Cool color work on this shot. Nice comp too!

Worst - I would rather see his eyes... I get the taking a break though..

I would love to see more fashion work on your MM account. I feel like I am looking at a FLICKR account when I am on your page. It is fun work, I just want to see your fashion type work on MM.

Thank you for your advice! I had about 185 photos on MM and I chopped it way down. I think I will stick with these for a while... at least until I can wean myself from more of them. Ha!!!!

Best. Awesome viewpoint and sky!!! Wish the style was edgy fashion for this. Perhaps a small pop of light to make it more about the model while retaining your cool sky!

Worst. The comp is not my style! I would lower it a good bit to fill the frame with your subject.

It looks likes a plain mood or like it is missing any mood at all. Perhaps moods like this....

Sometimes you have to be way over the top to have the moods your trying to project show up in your photos. I hope this helps!! Ha!

Best. I had a hard time picking a best because none of them jumped out at me. Working with some better photographers would give you a nice boost. There are several that where cute, but I want your MM to have more of a fashion/glamour feel to it.

Worst. Build a wider range of moods to use on your shoots.
