Do you think there is anything in my port that really should not be there?
I find it difficult to be subjective of my own work (a feeling which i'm sure many of you also have) & I wanna know if theres anything in there that really shouldn't be.

You have a lot of head shots, I would start there. Nothing terrible in your port. It's all pretty well done in my opinion. Add some more full length shots and maybe shoot more outdoors? Get out of the studio.

I agree with the comments above. You have good quality images, but little diversity. You might consider some outdoor shots and more 3/4 and full body compositions.

I like your stuff. But you seem to have some similar shots, with the same model. For example:
It's the same model with a similar looking shot. I would just pick one.
Also the same here:
It looks the same shot but different crop. Just pick your favorite from those 2.
I like this shot http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/33653376 but I'm bothered by the hand. It looks awkward on how it's cropped. I think it would've worked if it was just a clean, beauty shot with just the face.
I don't like this one: http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/33097605 because it looks different from your other stuff stylistically and the retouching looks overdone.
I like your work though. It's very consistent.

Thanks alot! Thats a pretty in depth review. Taken on board, I shall remove the ones that are pretty much duplicates and remove that last image.

9, 11, 15 and 20 - all the same model. Not up to the standard of the rest.
You have moved on. She got her pictures and I'm sure they were useful for her, but these are dragging your portfolio down now so you need to delete them.
Without having checked credits I'd guess #2 and #4 may be the same girl - keep those for a while if you want to be nice to her.
Just my $0.02

You have phenomenal shots, you clearly found what works for you and you're staying within that comfort zone. Get out there ! i'm confident that you can rock any setting.
now onto the reply, i would get rid of this shot
does NOTHING for your port - its boring

I am looking to clear out images from my port an was curious to know what others thought I should keep. I also have two shoots that are not posted yet waiting on images.

I like your images and I think they are very good. Overall very similar with tone and composition. Take some outside!!! More color...
