Tell them to come back at the next available appointment time when they have followed the instructions you gave them. Seriously. The only way to deal with this during production is to ensure it is dealt with prior to production. Make sure the client/model acknowledges at least a day in advance that they understand the need to wear loose fitting, non-binding ...

Is there anything I didn't think of? Perhaps the difficulty you might have in convincing the police that you only intend to take photos and that you never had any intention of having sex with a person who is known to take money for sex. Is this ethically acceptable? I don't think so. Most telling is the phrase you used: I had the idea of booking an ...

Are you posing or do you have a model posing for you? Most likely, professional photographers are going to employ professional models, either those who they've worked with before, or by going to a modelling agency for a suitable model for the type of shoot and the type of end result that they're trying to achieve. Professional models usually have an ...

...This sounds like an awful idea and for one reason that the other answers don't mention: Model Release You want to hire Escorts, that may or may not understand the reason you're hiring them. To do nude work with a tourist that doesn't speak the same language. Then you presumably want to be able to use it in your portfolio and publish it.. Without a ...

Is working as a model a good way to learn photography? It can be, sure. Rather, if the question were more specifically, "is working as a model a good way to learn portrait photography?", sure, why not? Depending on some conditions, that is... Is the photographer good? Is he experienced, does he know how to communicate with and direct models? Does he know ...

You can't get rid of compression marks easily. Rubbing or using moisturiser etc wont do anything, you just have to wait. So if they are there, you're stuck with fixing it in post and preparing better next time. If you have a good makeup artist they can probably make them look all but gone, with a quick touch up in post. Other than that, if you know you're ...

When you hire an escort instead of a model, you will not hire a model. Speaking the same language is one part of communication, but certainly not everything. Being a model means experience in posing, in being directed how to look, how a photoshot goes, etc. It's a profession. It's what a professional photographer appreciates. If the language they speak is ...

Taking pictures of experienced models with the guidance of a knowledgeable photographer is a much better way. You will learn some things as a model, but you are going to learn much better as the actual photographer. I can't say I have ever heard this as advice to become a better photographer (not that I am an expert). She would be much better off seeing if ...

I don't think modeling is a good way to learn photography at all. It's a decent way to learn how to plan and perform a shoot but it has very very little with photography. She won't be controlling the aperture, the shutter speed, the lighting, she won't be picking the angles and dictating the composition. She'll be sitting there while he does all of that. It'...

Here's some links: Modeling agency: http://www.famemgtasia.com/ Similar and very useful thread: http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/558133-session-with-an-amateur-model/ Basically Noldor, without having been there previously (I've been twice but only as a tourist) it's a little hard to imagine but it's extremely easy to get it handled once you are there....

I would have to guess as we lack any comparisons, but most probably lighting and composition as well as setting and context are the most likely issues. Pose alone does not make a good shot. If the pose is in a context that is unexpected for the viewer it can be disconcerting. Lighting is very important. If there is one thing that differentiates great ...

Why do you want pictures of people posed in ways that they would, in your words: never ever stand like that You are getting unnatural results because you are trying to achieve an unnatural goal. Try more natural poses. If you already know the models, this is easy because you know what types of activities they do, their interests, and what they ...

You need to use flash. The two main advantages of flash will both help with what you are trying to do. Strobes place a lot of light on the subject at the time of exposure. Typically at a much lower cost than the same amount and quality of light from continuous sources. The short duration of light put out by many strobes allow you to freeze any motion of ...
