I was just looking for an opinion on the lady on my main image, she's a friend of mine and i think she has potential to be a plus size model.
Thoughts?

As above, I'd need to see her figure before giving an opinion. She has a nice face though.

You've shot with her, you should be more qualified to say. Was she confident, pose effortlessly, bring her own ideas to the table, have her own hair/makeup skills etc?

Looks like you were shooting on a slightly downward angle on the stood up shot, or maybe she's just short? Would depend on her height and stats, and how toned she is I'd imagine... as well as age.

Looking at these girls http://www.12plusuk.com/models/ I'd probably say not in real fashion agency terms.

So depends on what you define as "be a model" (and probably her potential levels too)

Not really, I just wanted to know if she had a good enough look.
Thank you for your opinion.
And thanks all for your thoughts

Ok I'll bite.......

No.

It looks like you've wrapped her in a tent that needs ironing.

I didn't ask you're opinion about the Satin, don't know any tents made of satin personally,
or of the shot
I asked for the opinion about the model

There's always one on these forums

And in terms of modelling it just looks like you've sat her down and wrapped her up in a tent that needs ironing. I'm doing my Roy Walker impression and saying what I see. I see no modelling skills - anyone could sit down and be wrapped up in a similar fashion.

The other image that you linked to does her no favours either as she doesn't know how to pose correctly or has been given incorrect guidance from the photographer. Her chin is down giving her a double chin and the arms show skin folds (fat).

I'm not against plus size models as I've shot a fair few and regularly shoot weddings for clients size 16-30. The trick is to make the person involved look standard size and glamourous. Either the photographer needs to know how to pose them, or the model needs to know how to move to compliment their body shape. I see little evidence of either in your two photos provided.

You may want to check the link provided by LadylikeMedia for a benchmark.

She's not a model so no she doesn't know how to pose.
But what are you not understanding?
I was asking about the my friend heself based on what she looks like.
It is irrelivant what you think about the actual shots, i just put a couple up quick for reference towards my friends actual looks
I didn't put a shot up and say 'What do you think of this shot, of the way it was shot, or the way the model is posing'
Please read forum posts properly before answering,
Everyone else seems to have managed fairly well.
