Although it is stated in the video that it is intended for posing ladies, anyone may use it. You may use it for posing, you can use it to increase your level of comfort, and it will help you run a more effective set. Here are three of my suggestions for making photoshoots more enjoyable for models to participate in.
Here Are Five Suggestions That Will Assist You in Having an Even More Successful Photoshoot:
I am a fan of c-stands and lights being placed all over the place. This provides a greater level of comfort. It gives the impression of greater output and is beneficial to my ego, but in all honesty, for a more recent model or topic, it may be rather overpowering.
This is for the following reason: you should occasionally put yourself in their shoes and evaluate whether or not they provide a scary perspective. Considering that many of your customers have less experience working on sets, try to picture how scary it may be for them to be surrounded by all of those lights and stands. You don’t require anything, do you? Leave it out.
The same may be said of humans. It is not required that you surround your models with people to do their hair, cosmetics, and clothes, help them, or be their buddy. Ask each of them to choose a comfortable seat over to the side. They may still watch, but out of the eyeliner of the model. After you’ve cleared the way, keep an eye out to notice how much more at ease she or he appears to be.
Since you are compensated for your input, you are expected to provide it openly and honestly at all times. To withhold information in order to protect someone’s feelings is, in reality, to place a higher priority on your own convenience than on your growth. It is OK to say: “Try this instead; that’s not a good angle for you to take;” or “that’s not the best angle you can take. If you try turning your head in this direction, you’ll see that it looks a lot better!”
They are of human nature. This is really out of the ordinary. Sometimes we forget that the person we are speaking with is also a human being and that they are a visitor in our territory. How would you treat someone staying at your house? You’d hold them to the same standards as a monarch, right?
Take the time to sit with the model and engage with them after they have arrived at the location and been “stuck” in the glitz. Talk about what’s going on in the world, what’s being reported in the news, how long it takes to get to the studio, or even what else they’ve accomplished.
Get in touch with them. Because of this, they will feel more at ease sooner, which will allow you to acquire better images earlier on in the shoot.
