I saw your avatar and that I might be looking into something promising.  Then I opened up your portfolio and all my hopes were dashed.  You have a very poor understanding of lighting, and your compositions and concepts are...pedestrian at best.  Add to that horrible post work and poor exposures.

I mean...why would you consider this image worthy of a portfolio?...

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120831/11/504107b79c150.jpg

The model has deep shadows over her eyes and too much contrast on her face.  On top of that, the horizon is cutting right down the middle of the frame and the depth of field looks like you set your camera on auto.  Furthermore; you have your subject smack dab in the middle of the frame posed horribly and in this contorted pose, while partially submerged in some nasty looking swamp water.  You had a golden opportunity with what looks to be a voluptuous model, who apparently was even willing to shoot nudes, and you produced was...blah. 

Your nudes are even less appealing, but what really sinks it for you is the post work.  Take this shot for example...

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120805/20/501f345488583.jpg

it's already a hot mess, but you add all sorts of filters in post to really jack it up.  Same with this shot...

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120805/19/501f31f95985f.jpg

There's no way I could trust you to produce a decent portrait if you were asking top dollar from me.  I'd be pissing my money on images I could never use.  You have to seriously up your game if you want the big bucks. 

Considering the quality of your work; not only would I toss your application in the fireplace, I might send you a bill for taking some of my time look at your portfolio.  lol

Thanks for taking the time to give me a serious critique. I do appreciate your thoughts.

It's so funny to read over some of the comments. My favorite was definitely the one about you going on a vacation. And I couldn't agree more. I'll actually go with you and I'll be your personal assistant and we'll photograph models abroad. Great locations, exotic models... FOREIGN FOOD! What more could we ask for? Anyways, when we come back, then we can get right on making this model's career a success.

Here's my biggest concern...

On your profile, you say you've been shooting for 24 years.  When I look at your portfolio though, what I see is someone who has a fairly good understanding of exposure, but has never evolved in either creativity or lighting.  If your portfolio was a Baskin Robbins/31 Flavors Ice Cream shop, your only flavor would be vanilla.  Every image is sterile and uninteresting.  Now, that might be fine if you want to work at Sears Portrait Studios, but it won't cut it for a top paying client.  Your post also leaves a lot to be desired.

After 24 years of practicing this art, it should be me asking to assist you.  Instead, I have to go with Option A for you and say, "thanks for your interest, but no thanks."

To quote Darth Vader; "The force is strong in this one."

But alas, just as Darth was referring to a young and inexperienced Luke Skywalker, that's the way I see your portfolio.  You're GOOD, but you're not perfect yet.  You have great control over depth of field; good lighting techniques; good timing when it comes to capturing the right moment to create the mood for the image; and good understanding of color.  Despite all that, you don't WOW me. 

I like what you do though and I can already tell you'd be pretty cool to hang out with.  Therefor, I'm not going to hire you to shoot anything right now.  Instead, what I'm gonna' do is pay for some mentoring so you can fine tune your work and really become a contender in this field.  You have the potential to be great, so don't blow it. 

I'm gonna' go with Option C for you and we'll discuss more over a meal and drinks.

Did you know that when Alexander the Great would return to Greece after a conquest, he would pay one of his teachers to sit behind him and whisper repeatedly in his ear, "Remember, thou art mortal."  I'm guessing some people out there in the forums believe it's a little too late for me to be humbled.  lol

Anyway...

I appreciate the sentiment, but I have to honestly say I'm not feelin' it.  There's nothing "bad" in your portfolio, but then again there's nothing that's really all that good.  Based on your exposures it looks like you know what you're doing, but the overall affect of your images leaves me feeling neutral.  Even the shots with the bodacious Nicole (whom I adore) are just...meh. 

Stretch yourself, man.  If you're in charge of the styling in your shots, then stop...you're not good at it and you don't have the eye for it.  Get yourself a team that includes a good MUA and a stylist, and then toss ideas around and try to shoot some of their concepts.  YOU don't seem to have the creative eye, but you probably have the ability to shoot what someone else, who does have that creativity, has in their mind. 

For now, I'm going with Option B.  If you're likable, then I'll invite to my massive Halloween costume party, where Oingo Boingo will be reuniting to play their famous Halloween gig.

Sorry, Arielle, I just see way too much hesitation in you.  You don't let yourself go when you model and instead just...pose.  There's no energy, or mood, or confidence.  It's more like, "Okay, I'm just gonna' stand here...maybe you can make me look good."

That won't cut it if you're seeking the big prize and neither will your face and body.  Quite frankly, you have too much baby fat to fit the modeling look it seems you're going for.  You don't need to starve, but you do need to get to the gym and start getting some serious working out going on.  Crossfit would probably be really good for you to get you to tone up where you need it. 

Do that and I'll consider Option B for you, but for now it's Option A.

I just won the lottery! Should I hire YOU?

Nah... ya gotta give that winning ticket to ME!  All that money will just corrupt you... turn all your friends, neighbors and relatives against ya... and force you to buy expensive toys like private airplanes, speedboats, jet skis... which will get you hurt and severely injured.  Then you'll go on extravagent vacations... you will sky the Alps... get buried in a huge avalanche... AND DIE!

Me on the other hand, will go into pre-production on the two screenplays I'm writing... hire 1000s of people to work on set... cast 100s of staving single mother actresses who are struggling as waitresses in coffee shops... turn the economy around... bringing the movie industry back to Hollywood... finish the research and development on my new electric car... hiring millions of more people to mass produce and sell them... eliminating the need for gas and oil... drastically reducing pollution in both the ocean and the sky... opening 1 billion dollar Disneylands in every state with dozens of rollercoasters... and making the world a much happier place.

You should seriously consider my offer dude... cause I'm savin your life... wink

Very hard to say, Cole.  There's a certain level of detachment in your photos that doesn't sit well with me.  At first I looked at your images and thought you were not good at expressing yourself, but the more I looked at them the more I got the sense you're a very guarded person.  It's like there's a recurring sense of distrust in each image, even though you're nude in them. 

As the old saying goes, "still waters run deep".  There's a lot going on behind those eyes, but I don't see you letting the photographers you work with in.  Seems like it would be hard to connect with you during a shoot, so I don't believe I could use you for many projects I have in mind.  If I did need that particular mood for an image at one point though, then I could see myself calling upon you for that. 

For now, I'd go with Option B.  Maybe after meeting you and talking a little that sense might change.  After all, it could just be a certain level of shyness I'm getting.

One look at your avatar and I knew you were going to be good.  You have a great understanding of light and exposure; and your compositions and concepts show you're intelligent as well as talented.  You're REALLY GOOD at what you do. 

So since you have all that going for you, why are you not finding a higher caliber of models to shoot with?  Not that the models you've worked with are bad, but they're also not stellar (IMHO).  Because of that, they detract from your portfolio and lower it's appeal to a small degree.  If you re-shot every image in your book with some of the top models on this site, you would have an amazing portfolio. 

Again, I'm not putting down the models you've worked with at all and I'm not minimizing their contributions to your book.  But you have the potential to be recognized and realistically should be shooting celebrities with your particular style. 

I'd trust you completely to create a compelling portrait of me, so you're definitely hired for that.  But if I hire some top models, then I want you to shoot them as well to give your portfolio just that much more OOOMPH!

Great body of work, but I know it can be far better.  Don't sell yourself short.  Start hunting down the best models in your area.  I have no doubt you'll find a good amount of them will shoot with you, because you know what you're doing inside a studio and outside.

It's very "hit or miss" with you, Heather.  You have some shots that are just amazing, like this...

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110313/08/4d7cdc63caf23.jpg

and then others that simply aren't...like this...

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120807/11/50215dad47b87.jpg

In the end though, it seems like all your work is geared to fashion.  That's not my forte' and not what I'm looking for any of the projects.  In my opinion, your look remind me of the kind of girl who would want to compete on a show like "America's Next Top Model".  You're not ugly by any means, but you're also strikingly beautiful either.  In other words, you don't stand out from the crowd. 

When I was younger, my work friends and I would go to park every week to play some basketball.  One guy, Mike, was an amazing ball player.  Very skilled and very hard to beat.  He played college ball, but never got looked at by the pros.  That's basically what I'm talking about with you.  Among the masses, you range anywhere from good to very good.  Among the supermodels though, you're not quite there.

It's not a bad thing.  I mean, just as in pro sports; only the very top 1% make it to te big leagues.  For my top prize, you're simply not in that 1%.  Unfortunately, I'm going to have to go with Option B for you, even though I was hoping it could be C.

Imagine I just won the lotto and now I'm a  multimillionaire.  I also live in your neighborhood and want to celebrate my win with memorable photos.  Money is no object, so I'll pay you whatever rates you ask without baulking. 

I need a photographer to shoot my portrait.  Another one to shoot a calendar of all the cars I'm going to buy.  And models to appear in the calendar with my cars.  I also want to launch the career of one special model by paying for an entire portfolio shoot that can cover anything from fashion, to swimwear, to glamour, to art nude. 

So, the money is there for those who qualify.  Could you be one of them?  Tell me which gig you're submitting for and I'll tell you if I would:

A - Have my secretary take your card and tell you that I'll call you when I have an answer (but secretly tell her to burn your card because you just don't cut the mustard).

B- Come out to greet you and see if your personality can make up for the work in your portfolio that needs improvement but has potential.

C - Invite you to join me for lunch on the veranda, so I can take a longer look at your portfolio and seriously consider you for one of my projects, since your work shows you know what you're doing and I like it quite a bit.

D - Ask you who I should make the check out to, because without a doubt YOU'RE HIRED!

I'll do your portrait, although this isn't the ideal portfolio to show it.  I'm also available to be hired as an assistant.  smile

To tell you the truth, Dora, I really can't tell. 

I want to, but the problem is all your photos look like they've been manipulated so much; I really don't know what I'd be getting until I met you.  I know everyone wants to look good in photos, but you need to look REAL as well.  The skin in each photo looks like it's been smoothed and blurred to the point I can't tell if you have good skin and the person doing the post work is doing you a disservice by hiding it, or your skin is bad and the person doing the post work is doing me a disservice by selling me a lie.  On top of that, your nose looks like it's been altered in quite a few of the images as well. 

I need to see something well shot AND clear, so until then I'll have to go with Option B.  Hopefully you'll look better than what I see in your portfolio, which isn't bad at all. wink

Well, looks like you're in, chica.  Very nice look, even though I think your work can be improved on a bit.  I'd really like to see what you can do with a top photographer and MUA.  Then again...that's what I'm here for and why I started this thread.  lol

One thing though...

If you're gonna' copy someone else's photo, then do it well.  Otherwise, it's just fail in my book.  This shot...

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120919/12/505a22fc7700d_m.jpg

has been copied to death.  Unfortunately this is not one of the good copies.  You're better than that.  Don't sell yourself short with cheap imitation.  Create YOUR OWN memorable image by bringing all that you've already got going for you to your shoot.  I'd also like to see you doing classier shots, but I'm not knocking the glam work at this point. 

You're good at and good for it, so if it pays well then keep at it.  Hopefully one day your portfolio will be more refined and the glam stuff will just be something you shoot for funny money. 

Dinner at my place and we'll see where to put you in the calendar.  Option C for you.

Well, SOS, if you're going to claim to be a pro (like you say in your profile), then I'm going to expect to see pro work in your portfolio.  Instead, what I find is over-processed images with fundamental photoshop techniques; simplistic lighting; cliche' poses; and uninteresting images. 

This looks like it would be just fine as a photograph...

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110221/09/4d62a6a60d061_m.jpg

so why all the manipulation, which ultimately ruins it? 

I say go back to the basics and leave the post work for the retouchers.  You have room for improvement, which I get the impression you're capable of, so fine tune what you shoot and start bringing your portfolio up a notch or two.  You can do it; you just have to break out of this comfort zone you seem to be in. 

For now, I'll go with Option B.  You're humble and have a good sense of humor, so that scores some points with me.

Close, but no cigar.

You have a very nice figure, Gina, but you also have one of those faces that needs very specific angles to get the best look.  For example, in  a shot like this...

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120905/17/5047e88800d30_m.jpg

your jaw looks too strong, your nose look too flat and your chin looks to big.  But when you look at the camera straight on, like in this shot...
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pi … 7#29790457 (18+)

Your features look softer and prettier. 

On top of that, your face tends to look tense and causes you to look like you're scowling.  You need to find a way to relax during shoots and let more natural smiles come out. Otherwise, you look like you're either bored or ready to rip someone's nuts off if they cross you.  You might also want to take better care of your skin.  In some shots, it looks patchy or rough.  Use something like coconut oil and really invest in making your skin look its best.  You have a nice body and you're comfortable with nudes, so that has the potential to be one of your strongest selling points when marketing yourself.

For now, I'm gonna' have to go with Option A.  I've seen all I need to see.

But I don't shoot nudes and I must insist on an escort.  I mean, I'm so filthy rich now, I even have escorts for my escorts (know what I'm sayin'?  If not, then Charlie Sheen does). 

Anyway, your work is kind of hit or miss for me.  Some of the images look like they could be really good, then others look like you're hardly even trying and instead just taking the spaghetti noodle approach.  In other words, you just throw ideas out there and wait to see what sticks. 

One thing that's consistent in all your shots is that the models appear to be too stiff and posed.  There's no ease or flow to them, as if you directly instructed them on how to pose.  Loosen up a bit.  Don't try so hard to perfect the pose, because in the end you're ruining your shots and wasting your time with some good models. 

I can tell you want to create art, but it seems like you're trying to follow a formula or a recipe.  Toss that. Just let things happen and be ready to capture it when it does. 

For now, I'd have to go with Option B.  I imagine you're likable, so who knows...maybe in some time you can try again when your work has improved a bit.

By the way, this IS a critique thread.  So if you post here, I'm taking it that you want my opinion and critique of your work.  If you don't like what I have to say, please don't bombard me with whiny emails here asking me to remove what I said.  I shoot from the hip and tell it like it is.  If you don't want to hear the answer, then don't ask the question.  Simple as that.

Okay, carry on.

Well, Sarah, the first thing I'd tell you is to ditch that avatar.  It does nothing to make me want to look at your portfolio, because I have no idea what I'm going to find once I get inside.  It has some pretty lame post work done to it, which would make it hard for me to take you seriously.

Once I looked at your portfolio though, I was pleased to see you're not bad looking.  You have some beautiful features, but you also have some weaknesses too.  The first one that jumps out at me is that your nose is slightly out of proportion to the rest of your face.  That's not necessarily bad though; it just means a photographer has to be mindful of the angles he uses when shooting you.  This shot for example...

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120819/21/5031b94a69b48_m.jpg

looks very nice.  Your profile reminds me of ancient Greek statues of goddesses.  An angle like this one though...

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/121009/02/5073f1abe1674_m.jpg

makes your nose look much larger.  I'd ditch that photo as well, now that I look at it more. 

Another things I'm not fond of is the blonde hair.  With that color, your facial features dominate everything.  With the auburn color though, your hair helps frame your face and makes your eyes and lips, which are some of your best features, really stand out nicely.  The shots in the brown clothing and red apple are a good example of this. 

You have  a cute figure too and very nice legs.  Despite all that, you seem a little too conservative for what I'm looking for.  Yes you seem to have pushed your boundaries a bit with the open leather jacket shot, but I just see too much hesitation overall.  I want you to be fearless.  I want to see someone shoot you dressed as a Greek goddess; wearing a only thin toga at the edge of a beautiful river, or lying between some Grecian pillars with your dress falling over your shoulder and your bare body partly exposed. 

Right now most of your work is just sugary sweet.  That's fine if you're girl, but I want to see you as a woman.  You're 24 years old, according to your profile, so let your fashion sense grow up a little to reflect that. 

For now, I'd go with Option B...mainly because I want to hear your accent.  wink

Fair Dinkum.

My only wish with you, Egle, is that you shot nudes.  You have such a beautiful and captivating face that I imagine I could create some awesome, and very deep art with you.  Regardless, you have such a good look I would be a fool to turn you down. 

One thing I don't care for is your avatar.  It's too small to show how good your face looks and the black coat is so bulky it made me initially think you were going to be a plus size model.  I love this portrait of you...

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/111113/01/4ebf947f0b259_m.jpg

and feel it would be a much better choice.

You have this incredible allure that reminds me of someone like Bridget Bardot or Claudia Schiffer.  I'd hire you in a heartbeat and I'd love to see you take your modeling as far as it can go. 

I'll go with Option D for you.

Pretty look and nice slender body, so right away I'm inclined to go with Option C for you.  One thing I'd suggest though, is that you try to avoid the cheesy, overly done glam looks like this...

You're naturally beautiful.  You don't need all the fluff and gaudy styling to look good.  For you, less would be more.  Keep the hair looking natural and the makeup looking classy, not trashy. 

If you shot nudes, I'd probably go with Option D for you, but who knows?...maybe after I meet you, you might be able to change my mind.

After vacationing on my private island and traveling to Europe to test drive exotic new cars, I'm back and ready to look at portfolios again.  Who else wants to apply?

Very nice work, Dan.  Consistently good lighting, posing, exposures, colors, etc.  Everything is very pretty, so I have no doubt you'd do good, clean work.  What it's missing though, is that extra "uumph".  I love all your images, but I want to see a little more artistic flair and creativity. 

You're well qualified though, so I'd be glad to let you shoot some of the calendar images and give you a try at shooting my portrait.  I'll go with Option C for you, and then maybe after a meeting you we'll see if your personality gives me all the more reason to go with Option D and really invest in you.
