I want to chose only one of these portrait photos, otherwise my folio looks very repetitive. Here are the choices!

1. http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31249926
2. http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31249925
3. http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31249924
4. http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31249922

Then the next set is these ones

1. http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31249976
2. http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31249973
3. http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31249972

I will return the favor by commenting or being a critique for your folio. Just state whether you would like a comment or a critique!

Thank you so much for all of your support, hope to hear from you all soon

Thank you so much for that, after staring at photos all day i start becoming indecisive.

Your folio is lovely.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/21890307 - This is a very unique image, the way that the model is posing and the material that you have used underneath her creates that artistic feel. I see a lot of photographers just throw their models on a bed and make them pose with a similar pose, and yet theirs isn't captivating. Adding that inflatable mattress and having those patterns from the model added a very mysterious feel. I am in love with the lighting that you chose, it compliments everything! Although be very careful with the floor boards. If i were you i would Photoshop the wall and the floor board out.   

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30374545 Once again splendid use of light. I personally love the black and white work and i think you have nailed it! When i looked at this photo the first thought was "how did he gets her to stay in that position while looking so relaxed" I honestly thought she was flying/ on the edge of the bed leaning over it. I later realized that you actually rotated the image and there was no trickery in this! It proves that you have an eye for creativity.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30211880 i love the dark/mysterious feel to this image. Congratulations for being amazing!

I could go through a lot of your folio and comment on the most amazing ones, but i don't think you want to read pages of essay. 

Keep an eye out on foreign objects being in the photos such as floor boards in the first image. I will link you a few images that i didn't find as creative as others.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/27608237 to me this one doesn't appeal as much and gives an illusion of an amateur photographer. It would be an interesting shot if it was outside and the model was standing near a breathtaking landscape/trees/waterfalls.

Avoid using the same model for different concepts otherwise he folio becomes very repetitive looking. Out of the set with this model i would chose this image http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30883436 Purely because the couch has very interesting features.

I would keep the following ones of this lady http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30211880

If you need any more sets to be chosen let me know big_smile

Thank you so much for the response!

I would like to point out and congratulate you for working with so many different models (nationality wise) http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/29856614 has to be one of my favorite ones. due to the connection that the model and the photographer have. The lighting is so natural and location doesn't seize to get old (no pun intended ;P)

The avatar that you have of the girl i am not a big fan of, personally there are more intriguing photos in your folio. It looked like you caught her off guard, http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30488115 this one compliments her looks and her natural beauty more.

You do not have a series of repetitive photos which is a great thing, and every other photo has a unique feel to it. http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30761107 this photo is amazing, the location is gorgeous.

You are choosing on the right photos that do appeal to me. I would strongly suggest to change the avatar to another image. If you want a closeup of a woman for an avatar i would go with these ones http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/17809528 or http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pi … 8#26327129

If you are not picky about how close your model is from the camera then i would chose either http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/17482196 or http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/18988152

I actually like #4 in the first set. The extreme close up in #3 is a little intimidating, while #4 seems to be a bit sharper and the colors pop better when they're not so close.

In the second set, definitely #1.

Nice work!

Critique away. smile

One in the first set and two in the second.


I have to say that your eyes are positively stunning in all, however I chose those two for quality and consistency overall.

Critique mine if you wish smile

The only one I would chose is #2 from the first set:

Perhaps get the photographer to reduce the red in the 'pinch' at the top of your nose. Even so it's very nice - best in your port by far smile

Not a problem, you deserve those comments. I will be coming up to florida and other parts of the states late this year hopefully.
