HAPPY FRIDAY FANZ!
So, I’m mixing it up this week.
I know, I know. I say that like every two weeks, but this week, I’m featuring an aspect of fashion instead of actual fashion.
Today’s topic: Fashion Photo Shoots
I felt like a little diva model on my photo shoot around Hometown, NJ. But it was also a ton of work. I had no idea how much was going to have to happen to make this work. Since it was outside, we had to find the perfect spots with enough natural lighting. It was about 90 degrees outside and I was wearing a leather jacket. And the sweating was real. I had to take water breaks and get in the air conditioned car. Then there were make-up touch ups and fixing my hair. During the actual shoot, I had to get the right poses. At first I was so awkward. I didn’t know what to do with my hands or my face. But, by the end I was starting to loosen up and actually having a ton of fun with it. It’s like you learn how to be comfortable in a semi-uncomfortable situation. You figure out how to position your face and your body to get the “right shot”. Basically, what I’m trying to say is mad props to all models out there. It’s not all just about being “pretty”. It takes knowledge of how to hold yourself. It takes less than glamorous surrounding situations. It’s impressive.
Well, these few pictures were just a sample of the full shoot, which will soon appear as my new “professional” social media avatars and profile pictures.
