Hello people. This is my first time writing in the forums! I'm kinda scared.
Anyway, I would really like to hear what you think about my work. I know I don't have much stuff in my portfolio here on MM, but still would love to hear your advice! Thanks!

I wish I was a photographer so I could help you, but I took a look at the pictures in your port and I liked what I saw. Maybe a photographer will pop onto this thread and give you something substantial to work with. In my opinion: keep on doing what you are doing. These pictures are taken with your creative eye and I think you are using it well.

Try shooting out of your comfort zone

Not a bad start for a new photographer. A weakness may be your attempt at story telling- your avatar looks contrived as does the other black and white. These two pics plus I have some issues with and then the red hair woman as well with the extreme hair, but at least you are trying to tell a story in the B&W shots.
So- just shoot some pretty pics with less of a story and ease up on the stylin- just for now. Capture some real life moments some candid shots some joy too.
All the best

Thanks guys, glad you like it.
You really got me there, for I am always afraid to shoot out of my comfort zone. I always worry will the llama like the pictures and so on... Thank you.

I'm no expert more an enthusiastic amateur.
As there are only a few pictues in your portfolio hard to judge but I liked what I saw.
Photos one and four are lovely portraits, great depth of field and lovely bokeh on the fourth one.
The nun and the guy are great concept images and I like the composite. My only bits of advice would be to maybe step further away, all the images seem to have the subjects filling most of the frame, step back or shoot wider to show some context of location. And also mix up the angles, your standing position seems pretty safe (i.e most beginners would stand at their normal standing height or crouch), so lie down on the ground, climb a tree, get high, get low, mix it up a bit.

i agree with everyone.
onthe right track, keep practicing
maybe invest in at least one travel light, might enhance your outdoor photography.
work with more models and stylists/ muas
