I mentioned it to another photographer and he said we don’t use them any more and lot’s of models might not know what it meant…hummm that makes a lot of sense.
It’s wonderful when a model gives you lot’s of variety without micro managing them. Lauren knows how much I love the alligator smile and has somewhat added it to her repertoire. Lauren has a phenomenal commercial face with stellar teeth. Opening up your mouth even a little really adds to the image and just looks more fun.
For a commercial model this look is worth $$$. Not all models have great teeth on the sides and the alligator smile really highlights it. Lauren books a lot of beauty and commercial work because of shots like this one. If you’re testing with a model who has beautiful teeth, have them open up wide, wide and more wide.
I once asked a model what time it was in the studio and she said she didn’t know. “The clock is right there on the wall”, I said. I can’t read it because it has hands???
She grew up with digital…true story2 comments
