Hi Guys

I posted a question last week about what to do to help inexperienced models (and me!) come up with different expressions, I received some great advice, thank you.

From the other side of the lens, what do models do/think about to help them change their expression or look. I notice from a recent post of Don's the different looks De-Anne has, and it got me thinking. I think it would be useful to relay your comments.

Thanks

Pete

Peter...I think the key for us is EXPERIMENT we have done so much of that and fallen so many times...but it has paid off in the long run with some pretty cool shots...just dont get stuck in a rut, have Jen try different looks,expressions,poses,etc. look at other peoples work if you see a pose you like...try it out..thats what we've been doing.
Posing guides save you alot of headache and give you a base to build upon. I highly recommend it!

Don. P.S. Different looks??? DeAnn???

IMO, it doesn't matter if the model is experianced or a totall newbie, but if there is no communication going on between model and photographer during the shoot, ya ain't gonna get crap.

Let her know what you are looking for, speak. Want a big laughing smile, tell a joke or say something funny. Want sultry, bring the tone of your voice down as if you were speaking to your better half. It brings truth to that ol' saying "Your a tiger, your a tiger", LOL!!!

I have had shoots before were the photographer would just stand there and snap photos. I would ask "what are you looking for" he says "o, what ever". Model looses interest, gets bland, same ole expression and pose.

Any who's, keep the communication open and work together on getting the shot.
Best of luck
Alicia

Thanks Alicia

It's amazing how self conscious you get when you start out. It's like owning your first mobile phone and answering it in public for the first time, you think the world is watching!!

got to try and be more like Austin Powers.....


Don, I love working to music when I paint, it really does affect your mood...

I ever worked with had the ability to "fall" into near perfect poses and expressions with little coaching. When I asked how she did this she said it was a challenge her high school drama teacher set up. The teacher passed out a list of "pose and hold" positions and another of facial expressions and then had the pupils practice in front of a mirror. This particular girl took it to heart and spent many hours at home honing her skills. I wish I could have gotten hold of those lists but I really don't think it would be hard to come up with a list of facial expressions. If the model is serious about the craft she'll learn to perform. It is nice to be photogenic but it is nicer to have talent to go with it.
