Comments : The high fashion clothes that you chose for this collection are amazing, I absolutely love them, this is definately my favourite collection! Your eco idea was just so clever and well presented. My only deductions were for the background creativity , mainly because I find plain grey boring but I understand why it's like that.
You have produced some brilliant photo's during this competiton and I can tell that you put alot of thought and effort into your assignments, well done!
Comments : Wow, so colourful Cookie! Another stunning picture by you. You were the only person to produce five outfits so well done to you for that. Although I love the outfits, I found them abit of a mish mash, individually they are perfect. I get that you were doing happy colours but the styles are more varied than I was hoping for but having said all that you have still produced an amazingly excellent picture. I think with all those colours you couldn't really add much into the background.
You always produce top class pictures, your attention to detail is astounding and you always go that extra mile to make your photo's extra special, I wish I had your talent!
Comments : I think this must be one of my favourite pictures of yours, you have really pushed the boat out for the final assignment! How you used the corner of a room is very clever because it instantly gives your picture depth rather than it just being flat. The colour scheme of your clothing collection and setting all matches (except for the leopard rug!) It is a shame that I can't see the rest of the painting in the background because it looks in-complete like that, it maybe better not to use it if you can't fit it all into the shot.
I think that you produce some remarkable pictures when you put your mind to it, try to take your time and your true potentional will come shining through like with this last assignment!
Comments : Top marks for Daphne's appearance, I love all of her outfits but especially the bright pink one! I really like the 'flowery fresh' collection idea, all the dresses are the same length so I thought they went together well. I also liked how you matched the shoes to each outfit. The outdoor setting fits in well, I wasn't too keen on the object in the background behind the back of their heads, it reminds me of corrugated metal sheets but still a very pretty picture nevertheless.
I've really enjoyed seeing all your photo's throughout the competition.
Comments : A very unique style, Maquita is definately a head turner! I really like this collection of clothing, all the styles are really interesting. I do think however that the fruit outfit doesn't fit in with the other two outfits, it's abit too sweet and coulourful whereas the other dresses are more rock chick. The quality and lighting is excellent as usual.
Your photo's are always top quality and you produce lovely pictures every week. I think that you sometimes struggle with your setting/background when you are uninspired and I can relate to that becasue I am exactly the same!
Comments : Your model Willow is one of my favourites in the competition, she always looks good no matter what clothes you put on her! She is very versatile. Your collection of clothes is very good, I like how you stuck to 3 main colours. The poses are also excellent, maybe just spread the two models at the back out a little more. The angle of the shot could have done with being straighter as there is a bit of the shoe cut off on your model lying down on the floor. Although good lighting is needed try not to put it too close to your model as it will wash her out and cause her to glow if she is too bright, try moving the lights around until you get it perfect.
I have enjoyed seeing your pictures throughout the competition and I think you should definately give yourself more credit for your hard work!
Comments : I love all these poses that you used, none of the models are actually looking straight at the camera though which is a shame. All the outfits are lovely individually, I don't see much of a theme going on with them though. I wish it were more obvious that they are a clothing collection. I think a little more lighting on your models would have helped but I like the way you have placed them in the set with the two standing ones either side of the seated ones.
Your pictures are always well thought out and I think you have really improved throughout the competition, especially with these last few assignments.
Comments : A very stylish collection Eva, it really suits Daphne well. I like how you balanced the red dress out with more neutral coloured ones on either side and the contrasting shoe colours were a nice touch also. The poses were fine apart from the one on the right where she looks like she should be leaning against something, I don't think you could actually stand in that position in real life. The setting was also very simple yet elegant and fitted in with your clothing collection. There needs to be more lighting on your model, her face is very shadowy but the light catches her just under her eyes which makes it look a little odd.
I think you have real potential, your sense of fashion and style is outstanding. One of my favourite pictures from the whole competition is your catwalk photo with all the electricity/lightning on it, that is the the kind of standard you should be aiming for. I think with more practice you will certainly do well in fashion competitions.
Comments : This is a good collection of clothing Purple, all the outfits look like they belong to the same collection and are well designed! Jenna's appearance is also excellent. The poses were not the greatest, the sitting down model is fine, it's a shame you couldn't get the other model to sit on her chair because sometimes they will cross their legs when sitting and this would have given you another sitting pose. The model in the middle also needed more of a fashion pose. The setting is quite plain, I think a little more lighting would have helped your models to stand out from the dark background.
I have already seen you improve so much from assignment 1, especially with the angles of your shots and also the styling and changing the appearance of your model. I agree though that without pose player it makes it harder to compete in fashion related competitions. I know it has been a struggle at times but you have persevered and tried your best when many others would have given up so I want to thank you for that and encourage you to carry on. Maybe even try story related competitions where pose player is not generally so heavily relied upon as much.
Comments : Lovely hairstyle, it is just perfect for a red carpet event and goes well with the dress! I think you forgot about your camera angles this week, it has gone a bit high up again. The setting needed abit more work on it, it looks like she is just walking along a corridor, try adding more into the background to give it more of a publicity event type feeling.
