narrowing down first

People are usually pretty helpful on this forum, but you have got to narrow it down a little first - asking us to look at 454 photos is ridiculous.

Take out at least the ones you know you won't use - where your eyes are closed, or your expression is out of whack.

Get it down to about 50 and I'm sure you'll get some people to chime in! (Me included.)

Yeah, ok. Still having trouble narrowing them down. I have arranged them a bit though.

Hi SWong,
It's hard to look at them this way but I think the reason you are having a hard time narrowing them down is because within each "look" there is very little variety. The pose and composition of the photo is almost identical.That said I am not a fan of the yellow background with your skin tone and I think the hoodie and blue tshirt are the most interesting. Try to post a few of the most variety of each of them in an easier way here and you will get more feedback.

I agree with Joanna. There isn't much variety and you should narrow it down a bit more before sharing...otherwise it is very hard for us to help.

And definitely get rid of the ones where your hand is awkwardly sticking into your head from out of the frame.

I would also have the color of the hoodie changed to be a navy blue instead of green. It would complement the blue tshirt better... I think the turquoise on blue is a little clash-y and distracting.

Here's a quick 10-second color swap I did. It's not perfect but you can see the difference I think.

I've gotten the opinion of a few people as well as picking out a few of my favorites as well. If people have any suggestions from the vastly narrowed down selection now I'd be grateful.
