When I did a studio photoshoot, part of what was included in the basic package was a large fan unit. I suspect that a leaf blower is giving too direct a jet of air that is mainly being attenuated by the model's face (hence unable to keep eyes open) and then little kinetic energy is transferred to her hair. The unit at the studio was a very large fan ...


I made this a public wiki so we can keep a master list Work from a printed checklist. Especially with gathering all the raw-material images, make sure you get everything. Shoot the model with a mild telephoto lens even if you want wide-angle overall, and composite. Shoot to plan on compositing: shallow DoF makes it easy to use select in focus in ...


Some ideas from others: Several people note the significant drying effect on the subject's eyes. A number suggest turning wind off except when actually taking photo. A suggestion that sounded good is to add a shield in the middle of the airstream (they used a plastic plate) to create a low velocity area for the eyes. A number of people suggest these - ...


Albeit I'm not in any way a professional photographer I doubt this named list does exist. So my answer is rather to give you an option to grunting "dat one", and that is to build up a list of poses which you feel like using, and put them on a demonstration sheet where you can name or number them to your liking. This allows for you later on to refer to them ...


I'm assuming you are a photographer, and you interact with people. Saying "That one", "good", "extend your leg", "nice", "gorgeous", is part of interacting with people. I don't think any model, not one on the planet, would learn 1000 different names, with 1000 variation levels on each to pose, and to practice that pose to be just the perfect canonical ...


I think the poses in general (at least most) don't have a specific name, but you can learn a lot about poses from studying Fashion magazines and specially the work by a model called Coco Rocha, she's a genius in posing and coming up with as many different poses as possible. She published a book with 1000 poses (none of them have names) called "Study of ...


Another possibility is to have someone hold a large card, or panel, or box side, and wave it to create air flow. The problem with many sources like leaf blowers is that the air flow is too restricted. Waving a panel gives a broader air flow, and also allows you to control the power. Well, at least until your assistant's arms give out.
