Hi everyone,

I would greatly appreciate it if I could get some feedback regarding my portfolio. Also, what would you consider my strongest images, and the weakest?

Thank you,
Alicia

It is beautiful: a great face shot with great lighting.

Having said that, I notice that all of your pictures except for one are taken from the front view and they are all done with fairly similar poses. I would recommend taking some shots from different angles and incorporating a few more poses.

I notice that you are 5'10", 123lbs according to your profile and have very longs legs (according to your pictures).  You have great proportions for more high fashion looks. I think you should really play that up with the angles you use with your poses. Also, you need to show off your legs more. Not necessarily with more revealing clothing, but with your posture.

Different angle and poses, such as this? http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31382350

Your book is fine for a secondary market.  The shots are in fact better than most of the stuff I've seen from these types of cities, with that said you are not working the camera nearly enough and that will hurt you when trying to get into better markets.

What you need is way more action and personality in your photos. That takes time and working with fashion guns who know how to make a model move. There are some decent things to watch on YouTube as well, the key is not to copy but to understand how those models get the most of their look.

From a modeling point of view these are your strongest images, photography not considered. Only other comment would be to work on your expression in some of these.

Not sure why, but I find this to be your strongest image

Images that if they fell off the face of the Earth would not be missed
