We now live, surrounded, in a world of self-promotion and positive feedback. Models are a prime example of this with the use of social media to display their portfolios.
“Like this, comment on this, repost this, share this”
However, very seldom in this sea of positive reinforcement (however real or unreal it may be) are there requests for honest critiques.

So, in what ways can models seek criticism in their work?
