My friend just put up new clothes for sale on her blogshop, featuring me as the model again for the second season. We had lots of fun as per usual, and though I must admit I am not that into modelling, modelling for friends is definitely stress-free and much easier than back in those days when I was struggling as commercial model.
I couldn’t for my life understand how to pose beautifully in front of a professional photographer and I think they must be pretty frustrated working with someone with no passion for modelling. I’d greatly preferred doing advertisements which does not involve me being still for a long moment trying to look elegant and failing miserably.
Though I must say, pictures of me taken by professional photographers are usually exceptionally well-done, despite all my bungles. They do have great directions, and after hours of grueling communication, a spectacular work will be produced.
Why am I suddenly reflecting on my time as a model, I wonder. I guess every time I model for my friend’s blogshop I would be reminded of my inadequacies, but I am hoping to improve in my poses as can be seen from below, taking a leaf out of a modelling pose book. Unfortunately I only had time to flip through the pages after the photoshoot, and most of the photos are not really applicable for blogshop poses anyway. But still, browsing the book made me appreciate modelling more as an art form, which I had never really thought of it that way in the past (Probably the reason as to why I sucked at modelling).
Anyway, enough of my gripes! Anyone who is interested to see how my barely passable attempts at modelling turns out, do check out http://secondoption.wix.com/second-option and also shop around a bit!
