Messy! I suggest getting messy!
Whether it be paint sprayed on the models, wading in mud or just going crazy with makeup, I think it would be fun to get grungy with your deep crisp style

Great suggestion, thanks!
It was hard to find a "good" because most of your pictures look amateur, lack depth, poor composition, lighting... So on and so forth
Keep practicing! smile

What do you mean motion strobe?

Over all your black and white looks pretty good.. Work on using pictures where the models don't look like you caught them at a bad moment, crop and composition
Good: http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31685940
Simple and not trying too hard!
Ugly :http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130216/12/511feded2ffed_m.jpg
Many things wrong with this! Pose, wrinkled background, models lack of face..
Bad:http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130302/11/51325136b59f1_m.jpg
Terrible composition! You caught the model in an unattractive moment! And bad crop

I agree with the messy theme. Love to see you in a Rankin style paint powder shoot.

Maybe not quite as extreme as that, but you know tongue And some close ups of that beautiful face.

I agree with that. More color would be nice! Maybe something crazy...like splattering a bunch of paint or something everywhere and have a model frolicking through it. smile

It's just all too posey and contrived!
Ugly: http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120320/07/4f6893c8a5340_m.jpg
Great concept! Not so great execution. I wish it were more polished and I feel as if there is just too much going on!

I was going to say "more color!" but then I saw that everyone else already said that...but I'll still go with that. Maybe some shots with emphasis on movement similar to your avatar pic but with more color, maybe in the form of crazy stylistic makeup?
