A Date with the Camera

  • Sharebar

A couple of months back, I took up a studio photography package to put my posing skills to test. To be honest, I wasn’t completely satisfied with the results since I only managed to find a handful of pictures that I like out of the hundreds that we took! Anyway, since it’s only my second professional shoot, it’s forgivable. :P I was allowed to choose 2 outfits for the shoot so I chose one wearing the basic white singlet and jeans, while another wearing a short blue dress. Showed the pictures to some of my friends and most of the feedback I received said that I looked better with a smile. Looks like I have got to put in more effort to look better when I’m serious. :) Here are some of the pictures taken from the shoot!

    i think i agree with your friends that the smiley photos are nicer. it seems like in pics 1 and 6, you look almost angry, so it might be a bit of a scary expression (unless you’re intentionally trying to look angry) =)

    Haha I think I was trying to look cool and serious, like those in fashion magazines.. but I guess it turned out to be angry instead. Hahaa

    First of all, I must say that if you haven’t done well, the photographer is partially responsible. He/she should have guided you…

    #1 – emotionless
    Not my cup of tea, but I understand that all fashion models do that. The logic, as I have been told, is that the model should not distract people from the dress… (BS!)

    #2 – thumbs up
    #3 – a bit ‘chou low’
    #4 – OK

    #5 – Shadow a bit too much to be of my liking. But some people like shadow; they say shadow makes an image look more 3D

    I gather that the photographer used a single light source…

    #6 – not bad, though your right shoulder seems to be tense
    #7 – also not bad, though the bones on the hands are quite obvious…

    To be fair to the photographer, guiding people to pose is tough. I am poor in this aspect too, haha…

    Haha thanks for all your constructive comments! I certainly agree with most of them, especially the stiff part. :P It means I need more practice!

    I also think smiling makes you look better. Or maybe you need to practice on your “fierce” look more : D

    iamthewitch Reply:

    Hehe yea yea.. I think I look better and more comfortable with smiling too. Maybe I’m not meant to look fierce :P

    This is based on my many years of studying ANTM lols…if inaccurate let me know^^ Just a feedback from my point of view.

    1)Relax the neck. Tension is good but too much can make that extra bit stick out.

    2) Sweet! _<"

    3) My fav! Loving the angles. The lines make your body look like a roller coaster! up and down <3 <3 Wishing right hand was more visible. Face wise a little parted lips and extra smize would be killer!

    4) You seem to be clenching your jaw.. Relax the jaw and neck. breathing out does that..Left hand crossing the front of right elbow would be nicer and left leg a little to the left but knees together would create the lines awesome lines in picture 3

    5) Loosing the neck again. A few cm looking to the left/light would highlight your face.

    6)Sexay pose~ Left wrist looks awkward from this angle.

    7) Careful with your hands. Simple pose but wish there was more tension in the shoulders.

    For the eyes smize= smiling with your eyes. Breathing in or out when taking picture have different effects.
    Think of shapes you are creating with your body. i notice you are still reserve in your poses but maybe not used to it ^^ Ganbatte!~ You are very beautiful and you can do it!~ o(^__^)o

    You actually look ok in those serious shots but I guess your mouth wasn’t close smoothly? Can see creases on your upper lip.

    I really love seeing you when you smile. Remember the first time we met in Starbucks? I said I can’t keep my eyes off your smile? That’s your killer point, make full use of it :D

    I loved No:3 which has some depth and with a Monalisa Smile (between existing and nonexisting)
    Also is your 2nd toe longer than the big toe which means you are dominant over your husband:))?

    By the way i am your fan from Turkey (currently in Usa) hope to see your Turkey Escapade soon:)
