Amazing face- your jawline is fantastic! Versatile look for several genres.

Love the uniqueness of your portfolio. Definitely artistic, even though it might not be my style. Oh and your editing rocks. Just saying. big_smile

Mr. Felipe Jimenez,

I think on the good side, your photos are loose, airy, fun, and pastoral. I think your work at this point suits some magazines, catalogues, lifestyle shots for clients and the more you keep developing the better of course. Lighting is bright, and all contents are clear. You also seem to get a good happy performance from models so I'm guessing you're good to work with.

On the other side, I think some of the things above point in a direction you could explore more. I don't know if you are interested in this direction for commercial reasons, but it could take you in a more editorial direction in the future. Maybe you'd try it for artistic reasons or to expand your skill set. What I would say is that some shots are getting close to being too sunny and fun to be highly engrossing. The other way to go would be richer clothing, different lighting (darker?) and settings (less conventional). Although your models are buoyant looking, there doesn't seem to be much story, so have you though about putting them in a unique setting with more esoteric styling and then letting the model play with the landscape and their character more?

First of all, thank you so much for the feedback. I truly appreciate it, both the strengths and the weaknesses.

I agree with you when you say I can explore more. I've definitely thought about it, and I'm willing to try it. The only thing that I don't want to do is artistic nudes. A lot of photographers do that here, and I feel that's what sets me apart. It's not that I don't like them, I just don't think it necessarily has to be the only thing someone does. As far as them getting too sunny, it could be seen that way. I'm a very optimistic person, so doing something dark is different for me. Not that I wouldn't do it, I just haven't been able to explore with lighting just yet. I want to do a bit of studio and explore with that once I find a place to settle down after graduation. College has been really crazy so once I'm actually working, I feel I'll have a bit more free time to truly explore more options. Remember, these are also just a few of my shots. Not necessarily everybody's favorite, but at least ones that describe me as an artist: optimistic and colorful. I think it's a way to grab someone's attention. I see way too many dark photographers on here. Sometimes I feel that it's a nice change to see something a bit more playful, full of life, and yet still have some class. big_smile

Ann! I love your work! At first look through, your confidence and self-assuredness is so enviable, but looking closer what draws me to you is that you're having fun, and it shows. And it has to be fun!

I'd love to work with you given the opportunity!

You have great diversity in your portfolio. I like that you're not afraid to get dirty yet you can still play the dressed up role.
