Hi

I'm kinda bored tonight, so if you're up for it I'll pick your worst and best shot in your portfolio.

But only if you'll do the same for me.

Best shot:


Contact, light and composition getting the shot.

Worst:


Needs some work on the technical side, overexposed by at least a stop. Could be saved in post processing, but back to the pleasant work of retrying.

Doesn't look like anything other than a blob.

That was a hard one. At the first glance this one looks as if the light missed the top of her head, making my eyes wander towards the armpit.

Lighting and editing is of, had it been done right there's a theme for a great shoot.

I bet she's really attractive in reality but I can't help but focus on the not entirely covered up blemishes on her chin and the clumpy mascara. I'm also not fond of extreme closeups of faces like that in general. Would have rather seen her whole face.

Looks like the models are having fun, but looks like something shot with a point and shot just before a threesome.

That ikea chair rocks. postprocessing, pose, model, light. Spot on in my book

the pose and facial expression doesn't do it for me. plus the postprocessing is not quite what I like.

but mostly on the editing. teeth overwhitened, lips oversaturated, to much softening on the skin. not up to the standard form the rest of your portfolio

The blacks just take over all of the detail in her eye, and the editing is just not there: http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110207/11/4d504ba709299_m.jpg

Worst.. It simply doesnt appeal to me as much as your other images. The lighting may be a little too bright on her face but that could be the models make-up.
