Dislike 2,3,8

Like 4

Was wondering if 1 and 6 if done in another different background would be better. For example, 6 done at beach , green patch of field etc cause I sense of "immersing of freedom" rather than wall. And also pic 6 could also be better if the finger wasn't poking out or fingers clutching together such as letting out behind naturally.

Lol..sorry, just an amateur point of view. No offence smile

I like #2, 4 and 7 (already listed #2 before I saw this thread).

It's not that I don't like the others, I just don't think they elevate your portfolio in any way.

Regrettably too late on the east coast for me to provide you with any sort of more in depth feedback without me sounding like an idiot. 

I welcome any feedback you'd like to offer - perhaps a reco on what my avatar should be, and/or any thoughts on the latest 4 images in my Fashion album (top row).  Though don't feel obligated to spend too much time given the brief commentary I have provided you.

2,5,7 get my votes but wish 5 didn't have so much motion blur and your body weren't as straight on.  Concept is good though.

None of them will lift your port and only #6 would fit without helping or hindering it.  When I first scanned down the lineup of the images I felt that they were lifeless, which contrasts to your port which sparkles with energy.

Just one guy's opinion, no more.

I like 4 and 5. Your body looks great, good posing and expression. The others I don't think do much for me photography-wise or show you as a model.

I'm trying to cut some old photos out of my port, if you have some suggestions I would appreciate it so much.

Hey! So you're in great shape, but all your photos have a similar "Look at my abs" quality. It'd be good to mix it up, add some in shirts, etc.

Also, try to watch and make sure you have a neck. When you're really muscular, it disappears even more easily.

Considering you seem to be pretty new, you have a decent range of expression-- which is usually one of the hardest things, so BIG kudos on that!

I LOVE #5, you know this. Distant second is number 8.

The rest are pretty, but because it's you, I'm not in love with the rest of the lot.

Hate them all with the exception of the last two which are ok ( the rest are very unflattering and poorly shot )

While we are at it - What happened to that gorgeous shot of you in the long ( white ? ) dress that used to be in your port ?

You can give me the harshest critique you wish to

I really like #4 and think it is the best photo.

I think that #2 is a really good photo, but I also think that you are prettier than that photo, so I do not know if you should use it (does that make sense to you?).

If you like pastel figure paintings, than by all means comment, critique, or not, your choice.  smile

Love number 9.  It looks very editorial to me....like maybe Cosmo or something similar.

I like 2, 4, and 6. If I were to pick just one it would be 2. ( I love B&W).

What do you think of my latest design and photo?

I've been playing with hiding and unhiding photos so I can switch it up and only have ~16 showing. I'm in an inbetween period right now. ;P

The first two, I'm not a huge fan of. My eyes are going to the bright spots, and I don't love the white gloves with the black lingerie.

I love the bookcase one.

Her eyes also appear very very small... I think the makeup is hurting? Or perhaps just odd angles.

I love your current avi, though I wish the hair was a little cleaner.

those few strands of hair away from the rest across your forehead really take away from that #2/3 shot....and that's more of any everyone involved issue since it's hardest for you to see your own face

Alright, so this one:

Not a huge fan. Is it lit through a cutout? Since I know you go for doubletake value, I see where the motivation comes, however it looks a bit like bad photoshop. I think a softer light, but still as directed, would have been better.

Your avatar makes me click. Which is the best thing for one to do. I think you could've made the light a bit more complimentary on her face, but overall this is one of your best.

I love this concept. May be a little tough for MM because you have to click it to see it, but I'm a fan.

This is simple and lovely. Probably my favorite in your book.

I would love to see some nice, natural beauty from you.

Beauty is clearly your strong suit, but there is so much crazy makeup everywhere. That can be nice, but a simple makeup look with focus on the perfect face with the perfect lighting would elevate you to the next level, IMO. More the makeup you were using 6 months ago with the lighting and processing you've been using for the past 2.

Maybe try some nice, soft natural light looks as well? The ones you have now are a bit too harsh to show commercial potential.

Also, LOVE this.

I appreciate the complements, but I think that the URLs got screwed up.  These both end up at the same image which is not 18+.  Could you try these two again - I'd like to know which images you're referring to.

Thanks for taking the time to look over my stuff and commenting.

Kelli,

Thanks for the feedback, some of it already taken on board for my latest shoot.
