As the title already mentiones, I had a shoot with a photographer I met online and the outcome of the shooting totally shocked me! I am still speechless.
But now to explain how I got into the situation:
It all started with me signing up at a modeling site which acts as an intermediary for models and photographers. This means an agent is legitimately bypassed. Several photos are needed as well as a copy of your ID cart and some other informations mostly to make a fake check. Just as in social media platforms like Facebook or video sharing website like Youtube, fake profiles are a big deal and a big problem. To stop fake profiles from making the communication between real photographers and real models cumbersome, singing up properly requires a Fake Check. No big deal I thought – giving out my ID and other informations after I read the guidelines…
A day later the big shock happened! Logging into my email account, which I used to sign up in the already discussed model page, I was flooded and totally spammed by mails.
After I logged into the server of the model page I checked the mails and didn’t expect a thing, when I saw that every spammed mail referred to an actual mails I received in this portal!
WOW! I’ve got 20 maybe 30 or more shooting requests. I couldn’t believe it. That can’t be happening! Not even a day had passed by and I was disabused of my own self-assessment and my self-confidence got a big boost. But to come to the important point…
I always dreamt of taking beautiful pictures but since I wasn’t often referred as the standard beautiful girl in the location I live in and even received many racist comments on my way, I was so emotionally touched that all the doubts I had were actually not right! Somehow I was a little stunned, I had believed other peoples opinion that easily and let them just tell me what to do and how to feel about myself, stopped believing in what I can do. Now I got a more than just a positive feedback and want you guys to share this very pleasant and personal moment with me! Never let anybody tell you what you can’t do!
The next day I already got the chance to meet the first photographer and prove myself at a shooting. Was it successful or not? But to shortly intervene here, I have to introduce you to Tiefdunkelblau, a German who’s passion it is to do Potrait shoots and Lifestyle shoots and many more!You can find him on the link I will post here;
I have to say thank you again for the amazing photoshoot we had!
So back to the storyline. Shooting isn’t always as easy as you imagine. From the beginning I felt like I could be myself and gave my true emotions during the shoot. I tried out different poses and was assisted by the photographer. Making beautiful pictures is like a teamwork of model and photographer. Finding the perfect balance can take some time. But I had great fun since photos are one of the creative passions I’ve got! After sharing this experience with you, I want to show you 2 photos I got in advance of other photos I’ll receive later:
Did you ever want to make photo shoots? If yes, have you already done any?
I, as always, love your feedback! I hope you liked this post and my style to write openly about my feelings with you!
