On my recent trip to St. Louis to attend an After Dark EDU event, I had the amazing opportunity to work with models.
It kind of felt like cheating. In a good way.
They moved, pouted, smiled, and posed without much direction at all. It was a new experience for me.
Here is an example:
She was totally unposed (by photographers). We were able to capture her training in action.
Now, check this out. While our model stepped out to change her clothes, I stepped in.
NO beautiful pouty lips.
Just me, trying to be model-y.
What do you think? Honestly, I think I’m best on the other side of the camera.
And, that’s O.K.! I’m aware of my strengths (and weaknesses, lol). And I love being on the other side of the camera.
BUT, just once in a while, I want to experience what it feels like to be YOU. How does it feel to have a huge camera pointed at your face? What can I do to make this easier and more enjoyable for you? From this experience, I learn how to better help you (and make the images you’ll love).
