My new photos of Nina. Photoshoot was about bridal dresses made by Polona Andromako. Shoot was in Slovenia.

Just curious, but if the photoshoot was focused on the wedding dresses as you reported, why is it that just 1 of the 6 pictures show the wedding dress in full? Typically, it would be the other way around, a number of full-length pictures, then 1 or 2 cropped shots showing details.

Thanks for commenting, I chose this portraits for People forum, I have a lot more picture that show full dresses and those might be for another day. I like portraits from waste up more so this is why i showed these photos.

Howdy (Hello).

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."

She has a nice face.

My Quick Simple Suggestion: Work on the posing of the model. Notice the hands and limbs/arms and lack of them in some cases. Notice where the lines of the dress are and how that can be BEST shown in the photo.

From this set I think image 2 is the weakest (poor pose and POV and composition).

And, I never have liked seeing a "Girl holding up a wall" photo (image #1).

My favorite images were #5 and #6.


I hope these comments help you.

Take this for what you will:

Model expression: Dull. Neither engaged with the camera/viewer, not abject and taken by interest in something else.

Lighting: Flat and lifeless mostly. Need something to craft it a little.

Posing: Not bad mostly although the model expression does not help. Rule of thumb.. "if it bends, bend it". To whit, more bends are better.
