finished the first shoot

Recommended Posts

i finished my first photo shoot for the acting portfolio im doing this month

it wasnt great; 600 frames over 3 hrs and nothing useable . . . anyone have any tips of how to describe smiling with the eyes and not the mouth to someone who doesnt understand? the girl isnt comfortable in front of the cameras she focuses on it when the shutter goes off and she looks angry . . . the only good shots i have are very instructed or i snapped when she wasnt looking . . . i feel kinda hopeless on how to describe the eye smile

any suggestions?

The vast majority of people can't fake that - you've got to get her talking, to bring something up that brings out that smile naturally, then capture it while it's still there.

You know the girl?

Be funny and trick her in to laughing. It's what the photographer did for my senior pictures and it worked well despite my best efforts.

That's what I was thinking. At the least, get her talking - find out what interests her and ask her about that. It should calm her down, you'll get more natural-looking shots. If you can get her laughing, all the better.

If all else fails, two words: breakaway pants.

no thats not what im asking i know how to make her smile . . . im trying to describe it . . . im not taking 2 or 3 shots for a yearbook im taking a good number probably closer to 20 out of thousands of negatives

i dont want to have to get her to smile for every 3 shots . . . i want to be able to describe it once and get her to do it on command and hold it . . . and not focus on the camera or force a smile with no eyes

Tell her this:

Turn your head on more of a slant. Now, just imagine you're weightless. In the middle of the ocean. Surrounded by tiny little sea horses.

...hey man, it worked for Uncle Rico. Give it a shot!

It's a movie that every asshole has to quote from, even though it's not funny and they only liked it cause they were usually baked while watching it <_<

Weird. Neither do I. But now that you mention it, I think I remember it being funny, but I got sick and tired of idiots repeatedly quoting "chapstick" lines and the trademark "idiot" phrase...
