I had the opportunity to do an evening photoshoot in the city earlier this month with Flora, a lovely girl from France. Although it was a chilly night, we had a great time chatting and composing these shots together. Thank you so much, Flora!
I'm starting to realize that different photographers must have different ways of dealing with models' poses - some really prefer the model to position their faces and bodies exactly in the way that the photographer envisions, and wants the model to portray that very accurately. I think being able to express and exercise that vision is a definite skill, but at least in my (limited) experience so far, I much more enjoy giving the model a lot of freedom, shooting them in a natural state. At the same time, I'm slowly learning how to offer suggestions and work together on creating ideas. Let's see how my photo shooting style continues to evolve.
