It's been a LONG time fellow MMr's. To commemorate me wasting the last 3-4 hours of my time looking through the forums today lets play what I call; Yay, Nay, Or Meh. No critique. No reason why (Cuz im lazy). Post a photo and I will give you just a simple Yay, Nay, or Meh.

I know you guys have the stuff. I am setting my expectations pretty damn high. Let the games begin!

I'll play.  I took this at a group shoot - 16 year old glamor model in a red sequined thigh high minidress that didn't really fit.  I tried to make it look more high fashion.

Meh.. While the ambiance of the photo seems promising (I always dig a throw back vibe) The model does nothing for the photo and the black crushing along the bottom of the skirt is a little heavy.

Meh.. While the tonal grundge qualities of the photo is nice. It seems like an editorial type shot that is lacking the rest of the photos in the series. In by itself is meh.

Meh.. Honestly not a bad photo but the crop could of killed the dead space on top. On top of that the photographers angle required you to bring you chin up a little on that shot. Remember to never forget to accentuate your neck if the shot is at a downward angle.

Meh... Remember neckline. If the model is bringing arms forward as in the model of this case. What happens is the back hunched masks a lot of the neckline. So instead of a long slender neckline you get chin then all of a sudden shoulders. When shooting come down slightly below the model and make sure the chin is positioned to bring out the neckline.

First link. Nay... In order to pull off "girl in the bed" look you have to have two prerequisites in place. 1) Interesting shooting location if you aren't manipulating your crop or 2) in close crop on the subject. Neither of these fill that requirement. In the first photo since the location isn't great the photographer really needed to over extended the depth of field. Especially in a empty room if he wasn't going to crop. But all the DOF in the world wouldn't have helped the nonchalant ambiance of the room.

Second link. Meh.. Better on the depth of field. See how cropping give better stature to the photo. The angle of the shot is still too high from the photog position and there is too much black dead space towards the bottom of the photo.

Also remember all rules i mentioned above or tips are meant to be broken to achieve a good photo. Nothing is ever set in stone.

I completely agree that the first one would have been better if it was cropped more. Thank you for your input.

Yay.. Speaking strictly to your modeling it's a good look so for that you get a Yay. As far the lighting (which nothing after this is your fault), the kicker light in the rear needed higher placement or angled up and gridded. Then turned down a stop. Because of that you get quite a bit of light mid frame, and magnified because the hair is down. Also placing a rear light with no clothing really makes white hairs stand out. This could of been processed out by your photographer.
