Criticize my portfolio

Hello! Please criticize my portfolio. For all the time that I am here there was only one sale. I would be very grateful to all who respond.

russian knowledge is far better than english for me, as so, i continue in russian.
Модель с большими сиськами в розовом - весьма ок.:D в серой майке - тоже хороша.
проблема, по моему, в двух вещах - во первых, большинство фоток - вариация на одну тему с крайне малой вариативностью. т е можно считать что реально карточек не 25, а порядка 10.
не все из них удачные по исполнению, имхо - во всяком случае мне кажется что там где с будильником - не особо. ту же мысль я бы попробовал переснять, чтоб смотрелось интереснеею както слишком демонстративно, имхо.
ну и последнее - количество таки. 10 - 20 - 30 - при таких порядках о малых продажах плакать бесполезно. какое то шевеление и рост продаж реально начинаеться когда портфолио на сотни карточек, как я понял из чтения форумов. так что работай - придумывай темы, и вперёд. неплохие модели у тебя есть, а это уже очень немало :)

Good model, good photos... pay more attention on colors and lights/shadows.

You have 23 photos of girls, cute girls in your 25 images portfolio, but the only sale is photo of simple woolen yarn ball and this image has 3 times more views as best of your girls... It means, photo agencies have thousands+ photos of girls and nobody will buy so much, you must be very original, to sell here somebody, it`s wrong! Your photos are nice, but with '' low sales potential'', you must shoot something other - architecture details, interiors, tools, trains, cars, ships, containers, working people (not isolated), people hands close up, doing something, etc. Landscapes, specific for your or different countries are selling well, too. More phantasy and shoot, shoot!

Good photos. Keep uploading and sales will come.

Excuse me, but the pictures have absolutely no expressive power. Would you buy any of your images ?

Look a bit in the agencies round of the world and try to learn from other girls,guys what works and what not !!!

And Yes , i don´t think that sales will come for this kind of picture so look forward and learn ;-) wish you many sales and good luck in the future.

Excuse me for my honesty, but I think it will take you further than if I write how beautiful your pictures are and some like this.

Big-busted girl wearing tight top with hard hat isn't exactly a good concept for stock. Are you trying to COMMUNICATE the concept of nice boobies or job safety? Sure, I want the girl's phone number but a graphic designer is going to laugh and then look for another image to put in their company newsletter.

Don't crop the images, Buyers prefer un-cropped images.

Photo edit out the bra straps or fix it so they don't show.

Hi Drago76

I agree with you what you told us butt.... :-)

I don´t think that the photographer have big boobs.


If someone don´t have big boobs he must have other magical thing to sell pictures ;-)

I think the port is too small for you to take any conclusions, n ot only its only 25 images, but many of them are just variations of the same model, so, sorry, you cant expect much of such a small portfolio.

Keep uploading, if you like to take images with models, than you can add variety by asking them to wear diferent clothes, diferent positions so that you can take the most of a photo session.

On the technical sice everything looks very good.

Best luck to you!

Hi Afagundes

Conclusion was for the comment, not for portfolio ;-)

And Kozhukhar, one tip from my side. The world is not only white ;-

Many many greetings from Germany

Hi. First thing ... DT accepted your images so they have merit. Be patient. As for critique, your cropping is too tight. Also, I don't get the message with the girl holding an apple and an orange, I don't get the idea about 7pm in the clock photo. Probably the best thing to do other than improve technically is to diversify your portfolio with other subject matter.

Thanks to all who responded! I will continue to work with.

You may notice that out of all your 25 images, the one that had one download was the one with a yarn ball (an isolated object).....

You have very good pictures. But sales increase when increasing your photos. Keep climbing more photos
