With the longest day almost upon us I thought it was about time I picked up the camera again. Okay I have done a couple of test shoots with a muse but nothing really serious. My casting calls threw up nothing eye-catching so I booked a model I had already worked with from a couple of years back. The session got off to a slow start because I had difficulty remembering what camera settings to use and it came to an early end when I found I had lost interest in the subject matter. Yes, I’ve reached the age where naked young ladies don’t excite me anymore! I’m now sat here wondering whether I should sell my camera gear or wait to see if the numbness passes over.
Booking a fresh face is stressful, you never know what’s going to turn up, if at all. There is the possibility that their portfolio shots are a fantasy concocted in Photoshop and that’s why I find selfies shot on a mobile to be a far better guide. Looking good in a photo is one thing but how well can they pose? In the good old days I had the patience to help a new model along but Mr Grumpy Old Big Ears is a bit on the snappy side and likely to upset a delicate flower. Thinking back to these 4 ladies I can just about recall 2 of them giving me a few minor headaches, I will leave it to you to guess which 2, but I still ended up with usable adult content so no big dramas.
