First...my standard intro to anyone "new" to me on this forum...
My comments or suggestions below are not a criticism of you, your model, your talent or skill. I offer them in a friendly tone of voice and with the sole intent to help you with a second POV and set of eyes. If you read sincere questions and simple suggestions as "criticism" of you, then you will miss how I am trying to help you.
Of course this may be your own "style" or your own "vision" and I suppose we can assume that the images look just like they do because that is exactly how you like them. That is OK too. It just shows that there are differences of "opinion" on what looks good. IF these are exactly what you want and like, then by all means continue making your images look like that and have fun doing it. As I always say: "Follow your own muse."
Unusual settings (places) can make for unusual photos.
I generally like BW images.
I also enjoy seeing photos in a series, and particularly like to see how a human fits into a place.
However, in this case, while I looked at all the shots, I was struck by these thoughts:
1. "I have seen this kind of work so many times before."
2. "Looks like little effort was made to see the unusual, or make unusual photos of this unusual place."
3. "Girls(s) looks bored and seems to be just standing/sitting there for photo."
My Simple Suggestion: Go beyond not JUST the "no trespassing" signs, but also beyond what countless high school kids and college photography students have previously photographed at an abandoned building.
On second thought...obey the "no trespassing" signs.
But, find a way to express more of the place and more creative use of the humans in the place.
I hope these comments help you.
