Hi all

I'm still fairly new on MM and have just updated my portfolio with images from recent shoots. I'd value any feedback, whether brief comments or detailed critiques, as I'm really determined to continue to improve my photography.

If you'd like to also state which images are your favourites in my portfolio, and/or which you think should be replaced ASAP, that would be fantastic. If you are able to give reasons/explanations, that would be even better.

Much appreciated - thank you in advance! smile

Cheers,
Fred

I adore #3. The models face is in focus and you captured a moment in time from an odd angle. I like how it is not your average action/movement shot. The blue also really draws you in.

I agree that this is a fascinating and amusing shot. What's most pleasantly surprising is that, despite the wild motion, the face is tack-sharp. Well done!

Good headshot, though you probably shouldn't lop off the edge of his ear.

The lighting of the overall scene is intriguing, but the model needs some spotlight on her.

Not a keeper:
IMO.

Legs and guitar and the silhouette of the back of a head don't quite cut it. It would be especially useless in a model's portfolio.

Nice photo
Crop looks a bit tight, think if you include the V of the shirts collar and the entire ear
Raise the camera to eye level

Too much head tilt
With short hair best to show only one ear
Photo looks like it was shot in between poses
Fix shirt collar and tie for a more finished look
