Portraiture with The Beast

Discussion in 'People' started by Uncle Frank, Jun 21, 2005.

  1. The 28-70/2.8 can be pretty intimidating to a shy model. Fortunately, my neice, Coleen, is anything but shy, and we
    had some fun during this session as I attempted to "direct" her.

    I was looking for a sultry pose, so I rejected this "smile for the camera" look.

    Since that's the way she's posed for every other photographer, she couldn't understand why I didn't like it.

    Frustration/rebellion began to creep in.

    But she finally got it!

    What great fun... for both of us!
  2. That third shot is probably the real "her".

    Not shy. No wallflower.

    Self confidence is very attractive.

    Is she happy? Should be.......!
  3. Frank, the last image convey's a "I'm going to get you at some future time and you are not going to like the outcome." I'd watch my back if I were you. :lol: Kidding aside, she is a delightful model and your right the beast would intimidate almost anyone.
  4. She's alway happy, Vernon. One of the most upbeat people I've ever know.
  5. Thanks, Gordon. As you know, it's a joy to take pictures of beautiful young people...

    particular if they're girls ;) .

    What a cutie Frank!
  7. I like the last shot that defiant/ironic look, like she was saying i got you.
  8. I like the third one Frank, very confident looking pose. Yes the beast sure gets noticed but its optics are some of the best, Going to use it for the candids portraits I take following the swim this season for the end of season banquet where we do a huge slide show for the kids and parents.
    It does people just about perfect
