Day 13

Kelly today. Do any of you photographer out there have a system? One that gets your models to cooperate with you, to get their emotions out? Well, Kelly broke mine. It took me 15 minutes before the first shot really seemed to work, all because I had been trying to work the wrong angle. Usually acting is hard for a model, so you need to get the conversation steered to a subject that makes them feel things. Kelly turned out to be a great actor though, and once I started giving her the proper direction things went swimmingly. When working with experienced models or "civilians", being a coach to them is just as important as knowing when to release the shutter. 102 pictures today.
