You let me know which images in my portfolio should go, and/or which should definitely NOT go.

In return, if you'd like, I'll comment on something about either your profile, portfolio, or both (whatever comes to mind; I try to be helpful).

If you don't ask for a critique, I'll just say something nice, so ask if you'd like potentially critical feedback in return.

I'd think about letting this one go;

+18

It's a photographer's image, not a model's image. By that I mean, it shows off your skills, but IMHO, isn't something a model could easily relate to unless she happened to be into bondage.

It's okay if you just want to display images on MM, but if you want to attract models primarily for trade work, you need to have universal appeal.

Just my opinion.

Done. I had considered dropping that one earlier, and I like your reasoning.

I also liked your tips on using lists posted on your profile. Handy.

I'm not feeling much on the last photo of th first row and everything on the second should also be removed. They don't do much for your port the models seem dozed off and their poses scream amateur. The last two photos are my favorite beautiful soft fine nudes!

Think I would like this more if the sun were cut off
Since the sun is bright it is drawing my eyes off the model

Book value states the eye closest to the camera should be in focus
In this image you have the far eye in focus
Wonder if you could clone the left eye over to models right to help sharpen it some
Other wise this is a fantastic image

[Joke] Think this model has a rocky road ahead for her career
I like the feel of the image
For me less head tilt, and tie the bows by her shoulders

For me it is just fantastic as it is
Great pose of model
Her hands, hips and beautiful eyes work well

Over all you have some great work in your portfolio; you control the light and capture the models spirit. These are my favorites from your work

nothing stands out in this img..just doesn't feel like a modeling img
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31501797

really like the composition of this img but not so much the model's pose nor facial expression. she isn't connecting with the camera and looks awkward
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31501844

i think this is your best shot, just a very nice b/w headshot:

thanks

Thank you, I appreciate your useful feedback. And I love the expressions you seem to get from your models, I'm guessing you're a fun photographer to work with.

Thanks, Maggie. Overall, it looks great. You've got a few that are just super.

But then you have this one, which, if I had to pick one that wasn't as good as the others... well, this would be it.

You're too dark, the background is too light. Makes for a bad combination. You've got similar-feeling shots (like the one I commented on) that are just superb.
