Yes, a glamorous person will be great in a portfolio, but if you have a heavier set woman and you photograph her well and you can TELL she feels beautiful, I think that’s more meaningful to a potential client than nothing but unrealistic promises! REAL people hire photographers too, Ebi.
Nesgran really nailed the critique. Also, in terms of WCS’s advice, if you’re going to include macros – make sure they’re unique and interesting. The ring shots were ho-hum in terms of grabbing attention. Nothing that even really showed them off.
