    This has to be someone submitting someone else’s photos as a joke. I am not sure how you could, in good conscience, put a link of these photos up, then ask with a straight face if these are good or not.

    If this is the case, you are an ass. If these are truly your own photographs, you need to intern under someone for a while.

    EEK! I am not a photographer by any means but this is just poor. I have had bad photos taken before and these are not what I want to look at 20 years from now…not even a day from now….sorry…

    There is a huge difference between what kelsay posted and andy posted.  The second link you posted kelsey had some nice shots followed by some over processed bad shots.  The link Andy posted had bad shots followed up with worse shots and then horrible shots that literally made me puke in my mouth…

    lol, ouch.

     

    There’s a submit button at the top of the page. You don’t need to post other people’s shots here in irony. That’s just douchey.

    (Posting someone else’s shots here without pretending they’re yours is not so douchey.)

    Hellomarcy, I didn’t really see this thread since you requested comments on someone else’s.

     

    You’re a little heavy-handed on the skin processing, but overall looks good. I saw a few things I would’ve done differently, but that’s just artistic interpretation.

     

    I like your font. It’s not Neutraface, but it’s clean and modern. (You know I don’t have any heavy criticism when I actually talk about your font choice.)

     

    A lot of your photography is shot with the camera tilted down a bit… this is causing some body distortion (long torso, short legs). Since you’re doing fashion stuff, you should get a little bit lower and shoot with the camera back more parallel to your subject. You might use a longer lens and take a few steps back. However, a lot of fashion photography looks better shot at eye level, in which case you can either shoot wide and crop, or adjust the vertical a bit in post processing. If you choose the latter, remember that you’re fixing distortion, not introducing new distortion, so don’t make people look freakishly tall either.

     

    Depending what kind of lighting you want to use, you can avoid heavy shadows from hair on the face by shooting into the part (with light on the same side). This would’ve helped on some of your shots, by giving short lighting instead of broad lighting which is also more slimming, esp on the face. https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc6/s720x720/208922_473446789350679_1017480067_n.jpg

     

    Obviously, you’re not a fauxtographer.
