I like my port selections, but I'm new to the game. Anything I should think about cutting out?

You have some cool photos. But some aweful ones as well.

I love the shadows here

But the edges are too sharp for me, and the noise on the walls distracts me.

..Is this out of focus?

Im a bit confused by your choice for covers...

This is cool except for the left lower corner.

This is horrible. You have better.
Get rid of it.

Most of your photos are aweful.

Your newest shot and your avi are your best.

I cant tell you how aweful most of your pics make you look. Can you not tell how bad you look in some photos?

This has no place in your port. What made you think it did?

Why do you have a folder?

I dont like your style.
Its good you have your own...But I would not want to be your model.

I guess not, there are a few that i don't love the way that i look, but that other people seem to really like, I'm not crying but your meanness wasn't very helpful
or successfully catty enough to make up for not really saying anything

It seems to me that you've looked over my work before and suggested that I get out of the studio and do more location work.  I agree, but I'm not up to it yet (physically).  So, it's studio work for me for the foreseeable future.  So, any other suggestions or comments.

Ana, your pictures do not make you look horrible. 

However, I do agree that the cattiness is a far cry from helpful or constructive.

Okay here you go

You look like a trashy hooker on a corner. Better wardrobe, makeup, hair and pose. You should know better than to post stuff like this. Your hair is an aweful color.

http://modelmayhm-1.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/080719/16/48824f394b57c_m.jpg
Youve blocked your eye and this is simply grayscale, no real darks or real lights.

http://modelmayhm-1.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/080723/14/48877a0bb3744_m.jpg
Horrible editing and makes me scared of you.

http://modelmayhm-1.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/090330/22/49d1ab2e390c9_m.jpg
Fucking gross picture.
Lazy eye. Monkey lips. Brain shot.

http://modelmayhm-1.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/080615/06/4854f0e9a4869_m.jpg
This looks like a shot your daddy took. Horrible quality.

http://modelmayhm-1.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/080706/19/4871582f9ef59_m.jpg
Sunglasses in the bra? Eye bags? Dead arms?

Icky crackwhore photo.

http://modelmayhm-1.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/080617/22/4858705fece49_m.jpg
What is up with your hair? This looks like a snap shot from a camping trip.

http://modelmayhm-1.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/080904/15/48c030f6594a2_m.jpg
You look like youre getting fucked by a blow pop. . .Thats cool if thats what youre going for...

Crack photos

http://modelmayhm-1.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/090819/15/4a8c7c418fbc6_m.jpg
Smoking is no longer cool. (Coming from a smoker too.) Stop smoking in your photos. Wash your hair.

http://modelmayhm-1.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/080701/07/486a0f85284f5_m.jpg
Birthmarks are cool and all, but they do not belong in every photo. Watch your eyes and hands.

http://modelmayhm-1.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/080615/06/4854f1d193214_m.jpg
Im glad to see you dyed your hair. Now learn to pose. This is overexposed.

I just went through almost every photo. There are photos that do not do her any sort of justice. She should know the truth.

An example where no-neck works. Grand job.

You have an inate sensuality about you. Id like to see you out of your element though. It has to be easy for you to look sexy.

Your choice of avi is great.

I dont like these two:

http://modelmayhm-2.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/100107/15/4b466b9625d16_m.jpg
No figure, or expression. Pose is blech.

Weird colors and hand.

Dont think Im an expert in this or anything but...

For photos for your port I should be able to see the makeup shots like this:

With that highlight suck.

http://modelmayhm-4.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/100102/04/4b3f3795e41c4_m.jpg
This is nice for a clean look.
Does not make me want to look at the photo though. . .Just not impressed.

I dont see anything that the model shouldnt be able to do herself. . .I would post some extravagant stuff.

This is not a good choice for avi, I dont even believe it belongs in your port.
The white is overblown, and the outfit is not flattering.

I have to agree with you on the first image, but I have a reason for keeping it.  It was a 16 year old's first shoot and I didn't want to discourage her by not including a couple of images of her in my port.  She'll rock with a little more experience and age.

Regarding my nudes, we'll I can't argue with what you like except to say, and you like these?

I dont have much to say to you really...My advice would be to stop doing blatent open leg shots...theyre not appealing.

Youre in the middle ground I would say.
