Heffy Nell........sorry I just had to do that The standard of photography is poor at best. If you're serious about modeling find a pro shooter around your area who can provide you with ideas, themes, direction and some clever lighting. With right 'tog you can build a new portfolio in a day with images far more professional than you have at the moment! good luck.

?? In what sense is the standard of photography poor - Opinions may differ on which shots one likes, but I fail to see what flaws you see in the photos. For example I think the main profile shot is very nicely composed.

I'm left bemused by that comment too, the main picture is a cracking image

I was pretty bemused considering the 4 added pictures which the model asked for comment were by Jack Russell and Fienderella.

Cracking image? Its flat & soft, the point of focus is the ball, the colours are grey, there's no clarity or vibrance......it lacks depth & contrast, there are no lights or darks......need I go on?

There are no good or bad photos.. just ones you either like or dislike..

I like the main image, though I'd prefer a less muted tone...

The others, I'm a little, meh, about.. for me they are OK.. but not what I like..

Why not? It's a quiet news day. But just remember to take a long ladder down there with you.

Don't think you are looking at the same portfolio I just seen..

I guess its all down to taste.

If it means anything at all I think this is my favourite shot on your portfolio  - gorgeous figure, beautiful face and wonderful pose/expression.



You are certainly off to a good start, would love to see more of your work!

Whilst some might not agree with SteveSav's comments, he surely has a right to voice his opinion in a Portfolio Review thread.

To Heffy - I think this is, in my opinion, the best shot of you on your portfolio.




Best regards
Paul

It's perfectly reasonable for anyone to have and express an opinion as to whether they like the pictures. But the standard of photography is much less a question of opinion . For example the main picture is clearly well composed and exposed. Whether the post processing Is to one's taste or not is something on which opinions may differ. If he had said 'I don't like your photos' that would be fair comment

IN YOUR OPINION!!!

In my opinion I have left valuable critique, room for improvement, a chance to effectively strive for excellence which surely is the essence of this post.

You obviously settle for mediocrity, no lessons learned, no way to improve. You've left no critique but just had a go at me. Now HOW is that going to help Heffy develop her work.

If I ask for critique, ie, peoples opinions, critique is what I want, NOT oh yea your portfolio is nice, or as you say 'I don't like your photos',..... I don't like broccoli.

You left a negative (and standard 'do tfp') response to the original post. Was that a critique ? I merely suggested that you were wrong, ie that the photography was perfectly satisfactory. How would someone improve from your thorough critique? A model's portfolio requires images that show her looks, strengths and abilities, even if the photography were poor, for a model, that is much less important than the content of the photos. You will notice that not one of the other comments agrees with you. Your later (more detailed) comments are not a critique of the photography, they are about the post-processing. Also, for your info, it is regarded as rude to comment on a photographer's photos if they didn't ask for a review. Thus when a model asks for a review people normally comment on how she looks in the photos, whether they cover all the bases, and whether she has made a good selection.
