Tomorrow (which in actuality is now today) I should be doing my first trade shoot as a photographer shooting a model who is not one of my nude model friends. I had set one up for a couple weeks ago, but never heard from the model on the day of the shoot, thus deeming myself "officially a photographer," as I had my first experience as a photographer having a newbie model cancel on her.
One of my goals for this year is to start shooting more and create beautiful images from both sides of the camera.
How can you judge if a model is "nice" or "friendly" just by looking at their portfolio?
Here I look sweet and flirty as could be. In the previous post I looked serious. And in the post before then I looked intense. This cute expression would not be well fit for a fine art nudes in nature sort of shoot, or so that is my belief. My less frequent nature of cute looks does not mean I am not "nice," I just seem to model a bit more in the art genre than the glamour. (Just ask around or get me in your studio and you'll soon find out first hand) :)
I left my home at 12:50 pm to take Bart and Caltrain to San Jose for a shoot - I arrived at the station at 3:38, was picked up at 4 pm and commenced shooting at 4:20 pm. Sometimes not having a car in this area is beastly. Fortunately I was dropped off at Bart, and my way home was only about an hour and 20 minutes, which was much more manageable. While in a way rather close, San Jose is tough to get to from Oakland without a car.
