I am surprised by the extend of spectrum of comments here. You have very good advise, very bad advise and then funny nonsense comments that the first one helps if you know which is that, second one really hurts if you listen to and third type won't hurt but add some taste to keep it going.
Well based on my understanding and opinion, Sandzat #17 gave you good advise, the best real work her that has brought your image upto total shine level is Navydoc's edit - #31 (Why it has to be always from So Cali residents, all the time - Well taking care of fellow resident;)). & NO I am not talking of the Hollywood look. That simple few degrees clockwise "Tilt of head". I believe that is where the total magic happened. In other words that simple "Not sure what to do today" highschool girl's face, turned (literarily) into "A lady with statement".

What I added (Only a tad job on extensive work of Navydoc) is to take care for that distracting left axilla line and left shoulder (Right side of image) that was best, in first place, to be covered by her beautiful hair, by photographer's advise at shooting secession. A collage of some of images in this thread including original image in upper mid for quick check(Img #2).

Bottom line: You are doing good job. Pay attention to the right advise and keep up your good work.

Not gonna lie. I used to think Kanye was a bit of a pain due to some of his responses to previous posts, but now I just think CDI is a word that rhymes with stick.

I get that a lot.

No worries though. I simply prefer photos that make people look good beyond just being a pretty girl or boy.

Wow, thanks. I've been doing a bit of research on what types of positions make woman look the best, i.e. slimmer, prettier, and so forth.

Care to share a fine example of your own of whatever you're talking about? :razz:

It's a concept to grasp when taking peoples' money. Most people take photos and think the pretty girls look good no matter what...since they're pretty.

When you accept money to take someone's photo you want to try to take it to that next level. Make them look far better than they ever did in any other photo before. Blow their minds, so to speak. Generally speaking that means pleasant expressions rather than the ones I see in this thread.

Shooting for yourself, do what you want. No one cares one way or another. Portfolio, however, suggests you want to solicit paid work.

EDIT: Don't get me wrong, I'm not even trying to imply that I'm perfect and your having not met my clients means showing photos really won't demonstrate anything.

The reason I'm asking is because you're quite vocal in your critique without any actual input or critique that makes any sense. Just asking for an example -- preferably of yours -- that can be used in a portfolio. To know you're talking about requires an example at least!

Make sense?

I know what you're saying. But an example of mine wouldn't do you any good other than looking at my previous posts and seeing they lack expressions that suggest I tossed a stink bomb in front of them. I've yet to see any slouchy posture and disgusted expression that makes a GOOD photo, let alone one that parents would buy.

Pretty sure you still don't know what you're talking about lol

Looking for constructive criticism here; aka learning by example.

Not vague abstractions or half-ass commentary.
