I decided to ask the professionals on this one ;) Here is what I was given…
- Being a good actor/actress, selling a story without a pose.
- Facial and eye expressions.
- A wide variety of experience, daring attitude and brings other talents into their work.
- Fluid posing!
- Dedicated to their passion.
- An open mind.
- Professional attitude.
I thought all of these were quite valid in terms of what makes a model good at what they do. There were a handful of other comments but these were the best of the bunch. I found it interesting that both photographers and models were making these comments. There is a lot of negativity in the creative industry, not that there isn’t positivity too but more harsh criticism. I honestly felt that the reaction I was getting from others was very much indeed positive. I really had thought that maybe there would be a couple people who wouldn’t take it seriously at all and poke fun. There’s a warm feeling that goes along with moments like these. I think it’s one that doesn’t come as often as many think, coming together as one.
Hopefully, this list helps aid you in your search for talented models to work with.
