Some Random Helpful Tips

So I was thinking about random modeling things--why, I don't know...lol--and I came up with some tips that can be very helpful when it comes to the hours before a photo shoot.

 Some of them are common sense but you'd be surprised at how scatter-brained you can get when you have a shoot to prepare for. Some of these tips are pretty miscellaneous but I've found them to be very useful:

Wear the right underwear. To be on the safe side, always wear thong or g-string underwear. This obviously is to eliminate any unsightly panty lines. It also helps if you aren't sure what outfits you're going to be wearing so the photographer doesn't have to spend extra time using Photoshop to erase peek-a-boo undies, or take extra time during the shoot to tuck it in.

Bring more than one pair of undies and make sure you have them in the following colors: nude, white, black. Stick to material that is soft and doesn't show through. Don't bring underwear that has prints or other types of patterns on them. Silk underwear works great as well as cotton. If you have lace underwear check to make sure the lace pattern/embroidery doesn't show through the clothes, especially if you have to wear a form-fitting outfit.

The clothes you wear when you arrive at the photo shoot should be loose and comfy. This will prevent imprints from your clothes onto your skin. For example, if you wear jeans or jean shorts and are driving or riding in a car, your clothes tend to dig into your skin, leaving you with telltale marks when you get undressed.

Usually it takes a few minutes for them to go away but you don't want your skin to look marked and weird...plus the key is to save the photographer extra time touching up your photos. Wear sweats, or other types of jogging pants that won't cause these imprints.

Don't wear deodorant. Unless you've got the perfect one that won't come off on your clothes, skip it. You don't want to take the chance of streaking up the outfits you put on, especially with dark clothing. So for the time being, don't use deodorant prior to your shoot...if you've already showered or bathed then you should already smell like a rose anyway!
