The picture of the model AJ below shows that any moment can be a great picture. I always tell models that any moment can make THE SHOT. If you are standing in the right lighting and there is a camera in my hand, you can maximize every moment.
I forgot to mention earlier that a great video is actually Madonna’s “Give it 2 me” video with Pharrell Williams. I believe it was shot on super 8 film and a large chunk of it is behind the scenes of a photo shoot. Take a moment to view and see how Madonna uses every opportunity to connect with the camera. She pulls her hair back, she does it sexy and for the camera. She looks at herself in the mirror? She knows she’s on camera and spaces herself far enough for both images to appear and keeps the character going. Is she stretching? You better bet she’s thinking of stretching in a sexy way. This is what the pros do. They just know how to turn it on in front of the camera and give the photographer what they need. Usher masters this also. See the video below.
