P.S.- MODELS ONLY

P.S.S- If I do pass out...keep posting and I will get to it in the morning! smile

Hello Kelli!!  It's been a while chica!

Ok well here are the ones that don't impress me much-

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130731/23/51fa02e605041_m.jpg
I'm not a fan of your look, in this image....I don't find it flattering at all. (It obviously got published....I personally wouldn't have. sad

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120614/11/4fda2b6166576_m.jpg
I get the commercial aspect of this....I just don't think it's that strong...even for commercial.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110304/00/4d709d5b2f069_m.jpg
It feels very out of place in your portfolio....which is why I'm assuming you took my photos of you out....(only partially butt hurt! tongue )......(Okay a lot butt hurt! tongue )

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130709/21/51dce4e03b5bb_m.jpg
Just not a fan of the overall feel and vibe of this photo.  Sorry, I don't have a better reason.

You touch any of the other ones and you will pay the wrath!!!  smile

Except maybe this one....again....for some reason not a fan (but not my least favorite)-
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130709/21/51dce4d63d310_m.jpg

Miss You!  Hope all is Well!!! smile

Thank you. smile

And yeah, my look is just so different now!

But the skating picture is staying-- for now-- because while I have a few pictures in my skates, some people assume they are just a prop and this is the only one I have on me actually skating. I plan on taking it down soon, since my hair is so different (again) anyway.

Thank youuuu again! smile

Afton, because you are new..I don't have a lot to critique you on.  However, from what I can see, work on your posing.  As of right now it feels forced. The trick with posing is to make it all feel natural in the photo.  Interact, feel it, never just do it.  Breath into your pose, it will cause your natural posture to sink into the pose, and make it feel more natural. 

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130811/20/520853a61c84b_m.jpg
I actually really like this shot...just wish you had a better quality image of it to post on here!

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130811/20/5208536296c5d_m.jpg
You did a decent job on facial control but your hands and legs are all wrong and feel awkward, which takes away from the photo. sad

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130811/20/5208534ebb890_m.jpg
The arm is forced and doesn't feel right...also the mouth and eyes are all wrong as far as facial control for this photo.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130811/20/520852d74f866_m.jpg
Here the facial control is too forced and you almost look scared or constipated.

Keep shooting....I think you have an intriguing look!  Practice, Practice, Practice...and study bad ass models.  With Practice effort and experience...I think you can get there.

All my best my love!

Willow....You fiery little vixen, you!  You know you are good, don't pretend like you don't know!  However 95% of the time you are on, you still have that 5% of the photoshoot...where self doubt(or maybe tiredness kicks in)  be careful of that...get out of your head about it.  This mostly applies to facial control, every now and then you lose a little focus there. My gut tells me this happens in that five percent time of the photo shoot!

You are D.I.V.I.N.E and too far away my love!

Kelly...You are gorgeous my love!  I think overall you do a really good job at modeling...your poses are pretty good.  Your eye control is spot on!  Be careful of your mouth every now and then you have it shut too tight...You'll see what I'm talking about below.  I think your portfolio would be tighter with the removal of some images

Be Careful of your mouth control...when your lips are closed and pursed, a flattering image they do not create. In fact I would get rid of these two from your port-

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130717/23/51e7884baf60d_m.jpg

This photo belongs in a photographers portfolio, since it sells more of the lighting versus you-
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130825/23/521af7eb1a3d2_m.jpg

Why, oh why.......the feet being cut off in this photo is uber distracting..this is a photographers fault not you....however the pose feels uber forced-
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130804/19/51ff0de4e56f1_m.jpg

Your facial expression in this is bizarre...get rid of it-
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130718/22/51e8c7d91da5b_m.jpg

This is more of a candid photo...not really modeling...doesn't really belong in your port-
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130624/00/51c7f5a4c2ae0_m.jpg

Here is the mouth thing again-
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130730/19/51f8768d71302_m.jpg

This belongs on facebook...not in your port-

Overall though you rock Kelly!  Keep up the great work!  All my best to you my love!

Hey Marlene!  You are stunning!  As far as your modeling, you are almost there....but you try to hard....back it up a little.  In acting, we would say that some people over-act (it feels forced and fake).  You are over-modeling- try to make it feel more natural and effortless.  This will come with practice and experience.
I personally am not a fan of the body paint images...I find them cheesy.  Also, this is just a personal observation...dark hair suits you better than the blond hair. 
Keep on shooting...bring it back a notch.  I wish you nothing but the best my dear!
