Always enjoy seeing your work.
Fashion/editorial is not a genre that I can claim to totally understand but I would say your session was pretty successful.
Here are just a few observations.
- All poses except #1 are some variation of the "clutched", crossed-arms pose. It gives me a kind of a reserved/insecure vibe that was maybe what you were going for but it does come off as a bit repetitive for the set. Those poses also do a pretty good job of hiding the clothes. I know editorial is more about mood than selling the clothes but probably a good idea to keep some balance in mind.
- I understand that these are not portraits and that the 35mm gives a distinctive look but when you use it, you need to be aware of how you position it relative to the model's body and body parts. Notice how her knee looks larger than her face in #2?
- Posing is hard and of course there is always an editorial decision regarding how much to sacrifice an attractive pose to favor mood and vice-versa. But I did notice the "claw-hand" in 1A and the back-of-hands in #4 and #5. On a thin model like this, the hands can look older (veins and bones show), so it's just something to think about in terms of lighting, posing, and whether that will add-to or detract-from the mood you are going for.
- I question the cut-off hands in #1 a little bit, particularly 1A, where the bracelet sort of says "look here". Gives the impression that she is grabbing something.
These are nits though, and as I said at the top I think your session was a successful one. Nice light, nice processing. Pretty consistent mood for the set with an interesting mix of coquetish/insecure/contemplative.
