This photo shoot was originally a ‘prom’ shoot,
eventually, photographer ‘Bram van Dal’ and I, changed it to a combination with an
expression-based shoot, to show an inside of my expressions, which
could be an extra for my portfolio.
The photo shoot took place December 6th 2015, 12:15
I had some photo shoots before, but all of them (including this one) were on a ‘TFP’ Base,
which means it have not been paid photo shoots,
But photo shoots for both the photographer and model to build a strong
portfolio, but I already had some experience with modelling/photo shoots.
(See: The wedding photo shoot report)
This has been my first photo shoot with a photographer that I did not know before.
(The 3 previous photo shoots that I had, (besides the ones for of outfits @ my blog, were with people that I know, or where somebody I know was the MUAH etc)
My father brought me to Eindhoven, where the shoot took place.
Eindhoven is relatively close to my city, which made it only a short trip.
My photographer introduced himself to my father and my father went back to Den Bosch afterwards.
The shoot took us around +5 hours.
The first few hours were trying to see which expressions and angles were best
to photograph of me, and to check which ones weren’t blurry, and were well lighted.What I notice from a lot of photo shoots of myself is that the person I see in the pictures
is a completely different looking person than the one in the mirror, even though I have a symmetrical face.
A camera snaps you from completely different angles than you are used of, and sees every spot on your face,
which nobody would normally see while looking at you.
