Post and I'll select a representative photo of yours and point out at least one good thing and one bad thing about it. (don't post if the majority of your portfolio is nudes)

If you find my reply useful, feel free to help me out as well.

Good: What has potential to be a good smile if practiced and developed
Bad: Clumsy, apparently thoughtless posing

Good: quality photography lets us see you well
Bad: mostly you just sort of stand around, occasionally with one arm in your hair; develop some poses

Good: quirky, unique look can result in charming, delightful expressions
Bad: we don't get much of a sense of your body or posing ability

Good: high quality, sharp, good colours, captivating
Bad: all let down by a lack of that final level of retouching polish, so that it becomes actually unflattering to the model

Good: can look cute as a button
Bad: you look best in this self-pic because the retouching/make-up in your others obliterates the shape of your face

Good: you got an interesting expression out of this girl
Bad: the lighting and retouching are bad/indifferent and she looks like some random amateur girl

Hard to pick a representative photo; you're all over the place.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120609/13/4fd3af01f2e95_m.jpg

Good: you can look really good, with just the right expression to beguile
Bad: a lot of the time, expression and pose misses the mark resulting in something, if not quite unflattering, then at least boring

Good: you know how to pose and emote, are adventurous and when it works, it really works amazingly well
Bad: but when it misses the mark, it can be really quite horrible (but this is more about shot selection by the photographer I think)

Good: can look lovely in unforced "candid" poses
Bad: almost every time you look directly into camera you get something that verges on the horrible

I like your "Good" and "Bad" advice.

My port is mostly non-nude.
Thank you,
Jen
p.s. however, I think I already know what the 'bad' is but, I'm working on it and would like to see what you say.

You look like 2 completely different people in your port, so it's hard to pick a representative photo; which is the real you?

Good: you can look pretty in a natural commercial-style shoot
Bad: much less effective at other things
