A lesson in photo shoots: don’t leave the set.
Model: Jen Wells-Qu
Photographer: Emily Lo
Hair+Makeup: Apez Dream Team
I had to walk away from the shoot to go attend to a model stuck in the bathroom because her weave is too big to put clothes on over (which is apparently not a problem for seasoned professional models because, according to designers, they stand around naked backstage most of the time and always have 5 people dressing them…)Just slipping in an uncomfortable little secret, you know.
Photographers are always preoccupied with adjusting their lens and the model never knows what they look like, so when you walk away, the shoot looses direction. You can’t see the dress in half the pictures and let’s be Tyra here, there’s no connection with the camera.
And it’s not the fault of the photographer or the model, you just always need a 3rd set of eyes to say “hold it ladies, this is looking a little weird.”
