Childrens Headshots In Detroit Mary DuPrie
Getting kids to “un-model” can be quite a task. Kids as well as adults have an idea of what modeling is. I call it “vogueing” or better yet “face-booking”.
Really trying too hard to model, over the top, stiff poses. I want a very relaxed almost bored looked. When I keep talking and the model is bored and I looked over I see them standing there. I say “that’s exactly what I’m looking for”. What? What you’re doing now. Nothing.
The hip is broken/collapsed and the head is tipped to the side. As if the model has exhaled, then smiled.
I’m looking for a model who is comfortable being relaxed in front of the camera. Clients will assume the model has tons of camera time because they’re so relaxed. A model who is over modeling with the wardrobe they are wearing or the situation warrants is a bit annoying to me. A commercial model doing editorial poses just doesn’t work.
I miss shooting kids and I’ve decided I have to get back to it. Kids really brighten up my day. They’re fun to have around and don’t have any hang ups. I find them easy to shoot and the retouching is a breeze.
I taught Maddy my “Hey” smile and she loved it. Most kids smile way too big and tend to clamp down. She took to it right away. Yeah Maddy!0 comments
