Two portraits featuring professional model, Avalon Kip. Both of these were shot last spring in a large studio I was lucky to be in for a short time. This was all shot with natural light. The studio space had a big open garage door with a diffuser panel filtering out the coastal sunshine here in Los Angeles.
Working with a model like Avalon was such a breeze that I almost didn't know what to do. I am more accustomed to working with actors and other content creators who have a hard time figuring out how to pose in a natural and comfortable way. Avalon was 100 percent comfortable in front of my camera and fully confident in trying endless poses and expressions.
We aren't all full-time models, but since we all need photographs done at one point or another, we can learn a thing or two from those who are professional posers. There are some standard do's and dont's involved, but there are many ways that modeling can translate to the everyday person.
I learned it myself as a fashion model in NYC. But more on that in a later post...
