Model Behaviour II

It was the last in the present series of photography workshops with Michael Lau at his studio in town tonight. This weeks theme was modern glamour.

A bit of a difficult topic for me, as I've been more used to shooting normal portraits, or a bit a fashion. But Michael explained what it was about, and how it wasn't meant to be sleazy or touching on porn.

Our model for the evening was Kelli Smith, a locally based professional model. She was very good, and being experienced, would automatically go into a pose without being told, except for a little tweaking of the pose.

The time flew by. There were only five of us in the group, so we were allowed plenty of time to take photos. And we made full use of our slots. I ended up taking some 120 photos of Kelli in different positions, of which this is one.

Should you be interested in learning more about Kelli, she has her own Facebook page, which includes many, many shots of her that have been used in magazines etc.
