I have had quite a few people ask me why I do practice sessions and what I try to accomplish. I do it to be sure that I can get great model poses for photo shoots. Most of the images that you see on my web site are first or second photo shoots for the models involved. Girls come to me to help get their careers started so I am working with them in the early stages of their modeling careers. Over a period of about 2 hours we will shoot a few of the actual outfits she intends to wear during her portfolio shoot and we work on techniques for facial expressions and posing. That’s it. The practice session is structured to work on facial expressions, posing techniques, and to review the models’ outfits.
Now if you’ve read my articles, you know that I’m a fan of controlled candids when it comes to posting, especially for glamor shots. To get the finished look, you need a makeup artist and a hair stylist. Don’t think that you’ll get consistently good work without one.
So there you have it. I think the images speak for themselves. Practice makes perfect. Find yourself a good hair and makeup artist. In the meantime, keep shooting. Don’t be afraid to suck.
