The Effective Image

Depends on what you want MM to be for you.

If you want to attract models (supposedly MM is an internet model and photographer connection point), I'd think about losing images like this:

Kinda hard for a model to relate to it and see it featured in her portfolio.

If you want to use MM to show off your skill set to a broad spectrum of the population, post whatever you want. But that's not what MM is all about, and you wind up being seen primarily by internet models, photographers, and collectors of chicks pix.

Just my opinion.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my port.
Your point is well taken. I am not a member of MM expecting models
to contact me to help them build a portfolio. I have been contacted on a few
occasions by young ladies dreaming of becoming fashion model.....
But this is a hobby, and fashion imaging is not something I would any good at.
So MM is mainlly a way for me to find models that may have no ambitions to be
SI, cat walk, tear sheet work, etc....
You have a great port and your opinion gives me a better idea of were I belong
on MM

I LOVE your cleverness with photography.  IMHO, the weakest ones are:

This is a clever concept, but it looks photoshopped - I'd spend some more time on it to make it look real or drop it:

Drop these too

That's all the farther I made it. 

Mind looking through my port and letting me know what you'd drop?

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my port and I appreciate
your comments.
Your port is so minimal(list) that I wouldn't think of removing any images except perhaps the above mentioned and yet I am not sure....
Thanks again

I don't like your digital frame and usually think they look silly. On the other hand the image is very good: nice concept, well crafted, clear and the model connects with the viewer. More images with these qualities will help you here If they are something you want to do.

In general high marks for the photography but mediocre performance when judged on connection with the models.
