Client’s regularly comment on how they enjoyed their experience and feel more confident afterwards.
You might think this doesn’t apply to people who model professionally. But models can also experience a confidence boost.
I recently photographed a semi-professional model on a commercial assignment.
Elle said she wanted to pose implied nude but felt nervous. As we worked, she told me how she’d felt very uncomfortable with another photographer and how they’d lectured her on the matter.
But Elle soon felt comfortable in front of my camera.
She remarked how she loved one of the studio displays. It was a woman posed on the studio floor surrounded by rose petals. We finished the commercial work with a little time to spare. I offered to take a few photographs for her model portfolio, like the display she admired earlier.
Being so romantic, the rose petals on the studio floor are very popular especially as gifts for him.
Elle hadn’t brought any sexy lingerie but felt brave enough to only wear a tiny thong.
Elle was so happy that she’d posed implied nude. It gave her a real confidence boost.
When Elle got home, she emailed me saying:
“thanks again for today I really enjoyed it and realy glad that I did it!!! Looking forward to seeing them… I’m really excited!!! 🙂”
