I would like to get some feedback about my portfolio.
Constructive criticism is welcomed.
What is a keeper and what should I eliminate?

Raise camera closer to eye level so you are not shooting up the nose.
Also on the male outdoor, use reflector or flash or both to light up the eye sockets

Seems to work best when not blasting the camera with the whites of the models eyes

Try to keep all of the models fingers in the photos
Wide angle lens cause distortion, notice the size difference in models hands

Hide the stems of the flowers by positioning the top of flowers toward camera
Use a flash to pop the bride’s veil, so it is bright white and not gray

Thanks for the input smile
You make several excellent points I will keep in mind for my next shoot.
Just to clear it up about the wide angle lens, I don't have one.

I agree with the previous poster regarding raising the angle of your shots. It seems like you're shooting upward most of the time.

I like this picture, but think that the cropping was too tight, cutting the model's left eye in half. In other words, I like the tight cropping but it could have been framed a little better.

Overall, nice work.
