this was a test run for this young man. He's quite shy but very determined to see if he can pick up a little print work or what have you around town.

opinions, comments, critiques of any kind are not only appreciated they are ACTIVELY sought.

Thanks,

Shannon

The images are crisp and clean. His expression never changes but as you said he is shy. Give him feedback on learning to use his face and expressions (actually I imagine you did so already). The standing pose is awkward, it's like he did not know what to do with his right hand. The image is also a little hotter than the headshots. All in all you did well but the young man has got a lot of work to do.

Thanks for your comments on my images of Ben. The fabric you mentioned was his idea. He wants to design clothing so when he showed up I said 'you are the customer and the stylist, tell me what you want.' Eventually I got him to take the cloth belt off.

I've shot a few male models recently, and I've found that if I do everything I get in trouble for doing with female models, it turns out fine. Think harder lighting, more angular poses... Your model doesn't have hyper-masculine features, which is fine, and not a bad thing, but I don't think the lighting here did him any favors. Excellent potential here on both sides of the camera, shoot again!

Shannon,

He's a good looing guy. Blank face, but has some potential. He needs to lose the piercing in casual shots, like these. I like the angle of the first one. I would have lied for you to have turned his fac a little more towards camera, so I could see white on both sides of his eyes.

Otherwise nice images, crisp, clean, properly exposed. Good job.

Mike

your imagery -- great!

Few things male models lack is:

* the passion. once you have it, you can accomplish ANYTHING.
* (of course) acting classes help too.
* confidence is another thing to factor in.
* CREATIVITY!
* Communication. With the body AND environment AND with the photographer/model. No communication with either = expressionless.

These pieces of the puzzle accomplish so much.

Here's a couple of expressions Ive done. The work was done by the glorious Leah from fotohighway and the work of Hunter of fotografikos

Mike,

Thanks for looking and thanks so much for the feedback. yes this guy has a lot of work to do if he wants to get paid in front of a camera, the cool thing is he's very aware of that and is --I think-- kind of using this process to face up to his natural shyness.

Supposedly he's hitting the gym (badly needed on his upper body) for the next six weeks and practicing posing...he's pretty determined to at least try and get work, we'll see what happens.

Thanks again,

Shannon

Sam,

I appreciate your time and your thoughts. You're right, I could have hit him a little harder with the lights. Hopefully the next time we work he'll be throwing a little more attitude around and hopefully I'll be samrt enough to light it and catch it.

Mike,

Thanks for looking. You're right, he's really only got the one look but hopefully he'll use these shots to expand.

I appreciate your time,

Shannon
