No! Can't look at this ... It's crooked (horizon line is off)
Way too Saturated model looks orange and isn't even in focus!


Edit: I just noticed you're the model
Ok your body looks sick( in a good way) but you really should practice facial expressions because yours looks blah and uninteresting, the pose is kinda cool because you look just like a Barbie.

I really really really really enjoy this! I don't know if I like how you edited the colors but that's not a huge deal.

The models face and expression is simply amazing.
Her body is very lovely and I like the hair and makeup.

One nit picky thing, I wish the edges of her body weren't so blown out but Im guessing that was probably intentional!
Again, This is seriously so beautiful!

Very very lovely! This has an innocence about it.
That being said.. It does just look like an average agency snap shot.
You know what I mean? It's not very exciting.
I'd definitely work with you, keep up the good work and practice!!

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/12 … bdf022.jpg (18+)

Photo One: great portrait But I hate how your arm is cut off on one side

photo 2: This looks a little plain and it needs some retouching. Not a fan of your facial expression or your pose it's kind of unflattering. And worst of all this photo is out of focus!

I think
Maybe that pose and the one from before make her legs looks a tiny chunky.. I meant a completely different pose  like from the side. But besides that.. Absolutely beautiful!

No doubting your beauty. This just Looks like a snap shot.. White balance is off and looks a big over exposed.
I don't know, just doesn't excite me at all.
Practice posing and facial expression!

I would definitely work on your facial expression.
It's just a little too posey, you know?
This photo though is boring and the lighting is flat.

Thank you!

I'm not a fan,
In that photo it looks like you're going to pee yourself ...

I like the background, but the photo isn't lit properly and the styling/hair/ makeup isn't good either

I'm not feeling it.
I don't get this at all...is that lingerie or a bikini? are those broken shells all over the model?
The angle isn't good and neither Is the crop.

Photo 1: yeah she has cool tattoos but this photo is boring!
Pose and expression are unoriginal and do not excite me.

Photo 2: great concept i really enjoy it.
However the retouching/ editing on this ruin the photo!
Try skin retouching with a les heavy hAnd

I already critiqued the first one!

The latter  looks like snap shots.. Cute styling and everything but your expression and pose are boring!
I still say practice practice practice!

Photo 1: personally not a fan.. It's not a flattering angle or position for your face at all.
It looks a bit over retouched. Styling/ makeup is off and your expression is... Non existent and that doesn't work.

Photo 2: it's a bit better. I like the location.
And your outfit doesn't bother me so much but your pose and facial expression are boring!
I would say study fashion magazines and practice in a mirror!
Best of luck to you :-)

Your work is very beautiful.

I love everything about this photo... Except the models posing and facial expressions it's soooo cheesy! It looks like an ad for a teen show.
Like I said though, the technical aspects are great! Lighting is gorgeous, retouching looks good and the location looks good!

I'm not sure what you were going for in this shot.
I'll just say its a guy sitting on a curb, poorly lit a d not artistic.
The background/location  is cool and that's about it

This is not good.
Model needs a reflector under her chin to bring out the shadows in the lower part of her face.
Expression is ehhh.. Not attractive in my opinion and the make up is terrible/ hair is even worse.

Work. With. Better. Photographers

Best of luck!

Ok I just have to say, you're super gorgeous.
Anyway!
I don't know what agency standards are for male models (as youre not the tallest) but you need to find out and get yourself into a REPUTABLE  agency.
Third thing I have to say is WORK WITH BETTER PHOTOGRAPHERS! If you need to pay them, do it! It's worth it to build your port if you're serious about modeling.

And about your photo, it's super boring, end of story.

Photo 1: I like  .. Lighting, background, editing.
Dislike her pose .. It's too squished maybe haha
And I HATE her facial expression , it's not flattering!

Photo 2: I hate the collage.
The middle photo works on its own, good lighting, perhaps a bit claustrophobic (crop us terrible)  One thing that bothers me- I wish her legs  were closed!
