No need to worry! It's kinda funny because when people start to criticize my "Viking Wannabe looks/my scraggly appearance" they're the ones who end up looking dumb for talking shit about the WRONG person
i'm not quite sure what it is, but obviously it's posed (and he is yummy!) and yet he looks so comfortable in the camera that it's almost like a candid.
do you do anythiing to help your models feel comfortable being the subject of portrait? (that sounds damn rude!) lol!. it seems like if people feel ok with themselves then it would be a lot easier. i'm so anxious, the whole time i'd be like, oh crap there's spinach in my teeth or i have bed head or is my lipstick on right or am i going to have a lame expression on my face!
This guy is totally hot huh? I luvz working with this guy On a serious note, I do everything to make sure that my subjects just "feel" right" in front of me. Something that I find VERY interesting is that for SOME reason, I have the ability to get my male friends to ALWAYS go bare-chested....And I DON'T ask them to do it either AND we're all straight too! My female subjects I handle delicately too. I need them to feel confortable or else I risk getting one of those horribe "fake faces" that ruin pictures. Bacsically, i try to examplify that we're FRIENDS havin fun, not actually on a photoshoot
