Its been a months or so since I have jumped back in front of the camera and I was simply wondering how I was doing?  Esp as a former agency llama ( being told how to look and make up done pretty much for me)
So if you have 2 mins take a gander at my profile and let me know
Meny thanks

Well I definitely like your look, but some of your photos seem amateurish ( the photographer; not you) with the blowout of detail. They are standard shots that really do not garner alot of interest for an attractive lady like you. Its just an opinion....

You don't seem to necessarily be giving the camera your best angles. I have no idea, but if you were doing this when you were younger, you may have to find your angles again based on your more evolved facial structure.

You seem to be much more commercial than editorial.

Of all the images in the sequence, I'd keep this one:

I also noticed your expression was almost identical in every shot. In this one you look particularly annoyed:

Even if that's what you were going for, the image doesn't add much to your portfolio. Do more shoots with moods like this:
