http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130123/21/5100c5f73feb5_m.jpg

and I played a bit with the cropping on the one from earlier:
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130126/00/510395d1ca093_m.jpg
I think that's better as it doesn't look like I cut off her foot. Her hand was on her stomach as she was wedged against the seat but I do see your point about moving it somewhere else.

Really appreciate your critique and as it's making me think and reassess some.

cheers,
Don

photo1: just no!.. so cheesy. terrible flat lighting

photo2: ok so this model has potential!
1. fix your horizon line.. the image is so crooked!
2. have her step as far away from the wall. you want to get a nice DOF going.
4. FIX HER HAIR! still looks stringy
5. shoot at about waist level.. i think your shooting too low on this one.
6. have the model ditch the cheesy smile


Photo 3: same things still apply from what i said before, i guess it better that you cropped it a bit.

Hello! Seems to me like you have lots of potential! I'd definitely work with you :-)

Get rid of this
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/121124/11/50b121340b753_m.jpg

And this
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120831/11/5041074ff3ee3_m.jpg

And this- either upload the original or take a better picture of it with no flash flare
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120317/18/4f6537a1e9a79_m.jpg


Keep this
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120831/11/5041037626a64_m.jpg

And this
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/111006/15/4e8e26e0f1415_m.jpg

The rest are just ok images.. Nothing special. Either technical issues on photographers part or your expression is just unflattering to your face.

I'd say keep practicing a lot facial expressions and posing in front of a mirror and  study lots of fashion magazines!
And ...work with better photographers!! As you start to get more images start weeding out some of the mediocre ones.

Best of luck!

Ok I'm sorry but I am biased.
I h-a-t-e HDR

Besides that, in photo 1- the crop is terrible, cut off feet and head.. I don't know if it's the HDR or skin retouching but the skin on her face looks odd

Photo 2: ..I don't know how to critique this.. Cool picture.. Hate the hdr

This is not bad - i feel as if the focus is off, its a bit soft.. but maybe you did that with skin retouching but either way her eyes are not in focus and the eye makeup is wayy too heavy for this soft portrait!
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130129/08/5107f51a156fa_m.jpg

Again, a bit too soft for me. I like the idea of this but I in my opinion the llama's expression is just not flattering.
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130129/08/5107f452298cc_m.jpg

Model's eyes are not in focus. I hate the fingers showing at the bottom and theyre over exposed to boot!. I do like this idea, but it just was not well executed this time

This is lovely!
Things that work:
The colors,model's expression, flowers, makeup the hand touching her face and the flowers in the foreground and the over all editing
Things that don't: the lingering fingers on the right side of the photo, and I'm
On the fence about the missing eye but I assume it was intentional.

Photo 1: I don't get this at all..and the female model is way over exposed
Photo 2: I still don't get it lol.
Um the lens flare is cool! I don't know what else to say

This could be fabulous but the editing lacks polish.
Work on all her skin, hair and face in post becayse again it looks a bit untidy.
The models pose is great, her expression is a bit goofy but it works i guess!
The bathing suit is aweful, but it's my opinion... I would have put her in something else.

i actually do like this image.

i think the editing is a bit over the top for me but that is clearly your style.

i like her expression, her hand placement and messy hair
good work!

You have too many photos.. It makes people not want to look through your whole port.. If you're gonnanhave 4 photos up from each shoot they need to be really good ones, and I don't see that so I would advise you to keep it to 2 photos per shoot. Ex: the last two pictures in row one look the same .. Pick one!

Delete photos like this- not focused, messy hair/ make up, blank facial expression, bad posing, Bad editing, badly lite, and other technical issues which brings me to .. Work with better photographers, pay them if you have to!

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/121227/11/50dca39428467_m.jpg- cool idea but terrible makeup application
There are more so look through thoroughly

Keep photos like this: good editing,posing,makeup, and look over all polished

First thought is I hate the bandana- it doesn't match at all and this image would look Better w some pinup style curls maybe.
Next thing I noticed is you should crop above her knee, it looks weird that her knees are showing lol, she's missing an arm, and the hand that is showing looks very awkward.

But over all I think for the most part the lighting could be more interesting but I think the pictures is pretty successful. I do think the model looks gorgeous love her dress and make up

I was learning a lot from critiques like these but got my mouth ripped (unfairly so in my opinion) out yesterday so I am afraid to venture out again. Oh, what the hell. Give it a go. Welcome to check out the whole port if you feel like it.
