    Clee, a lot of people dont look at off site links unless they like what they see here, better off posting one or two shots here and then a link to the rest if you want some proper critique.

    They look like Myspace photos, #6 is the only one that stands out a little for me

    I agree that #6 is by far the strongest photo. That one has nice soft light, a direct connection with the model (she's looking at the camera) and it also doesn't have a distracting or boring looking background. Most of the other ones have one or more of those problems.

    A good start, keep at it.

    If you really want us to break a photo down, post it in it's own thread. It's too confusing and convoluted to break down 12 photos in one thread.

    We actually used to have a 'one photo' rule for critique...but it was hard to enforce.

    Also, if you really want critique, let us in on what you were going for and what you did. What settings did you use...where was the light & the model and why were they in those positions. What was the scene/background and why did you use those spots etc.

    The more you put into it, the more you can get out.

    1) The weird angles are making your life a lot harder...especially for this style shoot.
    2) You need to learn how to retouch skin.
    3) The exposures are off...particularly you're blowing out the highlights. A flash, or some better ambient light would help.
    4) Your model isn't connecting with the camera.
    5) The black and whites are too gray, and the color separation could be a lot better in the color shots. The tone range looks very compressed in almost all of these.
    6) I would work on exploring a wider variety of compositions and poses.

    I agree, watch your backgrounds. Try something with a twist on your next shoot, something that is an eye catcher. Color is a stong image tool, lighting is another secret.:wink:

    Good luck.
