I've seen you've done this with a few models, you've not only told them why a shot sucks, but you've told them what to do to make it better artistically. I'm desperately seeking to broaden my horizons and I would love to be told what I'm doing wrong. (or right? That couldn't hurt either =] )
Thanks.

You head is a weird shape, and the photog failed to take out the neck wrinkles. (ya we all get em, but they dont belong in our photos)

http://modelmayhm-4.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/100112/01/4b4c45f88ae3a_m.jpg
I do not enjoy the lighting here. I do enjoy your face.

http://modelmayhm-4.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/100112/01/4b4c45d64ed6f_m.jpg
Hands are cut off, and weird lighting makes it look like you have a unibrow.
Also dont like the reflection

http://modelmayhm-4.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/090606/07/4a2a8247bc316_m.jpg
Cute but I hate this kind of stuff.
Doesnt make sense.

http://modelmayhm-4.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/090823/19/4a9200b314d91_m.jpg
Stop putting so many of these in your port. Pick only the best. Your hands cropped in this one.

http://modelmayhm-4.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/090708/18/4a554e4958eb6_m.jpg
This is not flattering and a bad photo for both parties.

http://modelmayhm-4.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/090613/20/4a346cac2a27a_m.jpg
Ugh. Myspace.

http://modelmayhm-4.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/091211/07/4b226a8c844d3_m.jpg
Harsh shadows. Bad colors. Does absolutely nothing for you as a model.

Your avi is overexposed, so its hard for me to tell what it is...and its not near cool enough as a thumbnail to make me want to see what it is.

Its a cool photo

You have a weird port.

http://modelmayhm-7.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/091104/08/4af1a59a6a891_m.jpg
I do not like this at all. Reminds me of the nasty bitch from Dodgeball.

Doesnt make sense, out of focus and Im not a fan of open leg shots, though I understand it here.

Male models....

I dont like this photo:

Broken jaw? And looks like nobodys home upstairs.

I would say work on expressions, but male models dont have many.

Its hard to critique you guys. You have a shirtless pic....cool...you have the staring off into the distance pic...okay...you have the candid laughing photo...cute...and the couples shots.

Meh. Same old stuff. I find very few male model ports that strike my fancy.

I do not like this. Weird camera spot on your boob, your hands are cut off, and this is only flattering of your breasts, and there are way better ways to do so. Weird blurry pants and aweful background.

Your eyes look lazy in this photo. Not flattering. Also, your face should be lit up. If you had been facing the opposite way, towards your main light, the problem would have been fixed.

Id like to see more range from the lights to darks. You have your niche, but Id like to see you out of your comfort zone. Play with real blacks and real whites, get out of the muted photos.

I didnt say that honesty had to be mean. I have chosen to make it so in this specific thread.

Get something other than senior photos in your port.

This makes you look red. And about 14 years old.

I would rather look at the gross blanket than you in this photo. Thats never good. Pose your butt off. Instead of just laying there, *do* something.

Theres not much to crit in your port.

This is badly exposed and edited, definitely does not belong in a port of your level.

Bad.
You look sunburnt, bored and wide. The out of focus hand is distracting.

Well, I would mix up your photos a bit, because the majority of your photos on the first page have the same expression. It made me believe you were a two-face model until I saw your second page.

I would lose these:
http://modelmayhm-9.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/090406/12/49da5df0e4597_m.jpg
There is a better one from this shoot. The first photo doesnt belong.

You know you should pick one from a certain outfit, so pick your fav of the mohawk and the yellow/black stripes.

http://modelmayhm-9.vo.llnwd.net/d1/photos/091219/09/4b2d080fe06ec_m.jpg
This makes me ill. The dress' texture is somehow way off, and I dislike the colors strongly

This would have rocked except for the edit...I think you can take it back to ps and fix it up to have a more dramatic effect.

When you rock a concept, it freaking rocks my socks.

Then I run into crap like this

The picture is out of focus, and my eyes go to the weird lines on the wall in the two left hand corners rather than the model.

Honestly? Not one of their faces is appealing. Your models should know that generally, with dark eye makeup, bright red lipstick is a big NO. Insta-clown.
Concept fail.

18+
http://www.modelmayhem.com/pic.php?pic_ … id=185&ua=
This could have rocked. Im tired of seeing the blue tarp background. Buy a real one.
The models hands, though I understand they are cold, look aweful. The deep blood red is not good. The model's pose needs to make the shot. The ice poses better than her here.
