I hate to ask but was she falling in number 5? I think the overall technique is good but a lot of those poses look very awkward to me . However, I haven't don't anything in fashion either but I do know that this is the norm so good work!

Some of your shoots are better than others. Some are outright fantastic. Not everything can be great. This one is about in the middle. But I have to say that I absolutely ADMIRE how you seem to get out there almost every day and give it all a go so diligently. Bravo! By the way, how to find such nice subjects to work with so often?

Thanks, I shoot maybe two or three times a month, it's a creative outlet for me. As far as subjects, try modelmayhem or onemodelplace.

Hi,

disclaimer first: I can't do any better nor do I consider myself an expert. So my comments are strictly my personal preferences, nothing more.

1

My suggestion would be adjusting the image for the vertical lines of the building and the wall.

2

Again I'd adjust for the vertical lines.

4

Once more I'd adjust for the vertical lines in the background

7

One more I think would benefit from correct vertical lines. Or is the telephone cabin dropping?

Considering the posing I understand that it may be a diffult task to differ one from the other shot but from my point of view the poses get so artificial. If it's fashion photography what the model wears would be the centre of attention. If it is the person being depicted posing in strange positions doesn't help to convey the personality. In any case though a technically excellent work - even if I didn't understand the twists mentioned above.

Thanks for commenting. I don't usually tilt images; most often I'm very orthogonal in composing. In this case I felt a little skewing served the images. Que sera...
