Here are some shots from another photo shoot. This time with Dean. I took Dean a little while to loosen up. One of the things I try to do is talk to models while I am shooting them. If I want them to smile I try to say something funny rather than just say “smile”. I get a more natural expression. I also reject the trend lately that I have seen in more and more work across the media of photoshopping all the texture out of models faces. Why use a model in the first place if you are going to make them look like a plastic doll.
