My Modeling Song List for Photoshooots
I did a post a while back talking about playing music during a photoshoot to help get you into the right mood and help with posing. Did you know that Giselle listens to classical music during her shoots? It's true. It doesn't matter what your musical tastes are, as long as it gets you in the right frame of mind to pull off amazing images, it helps to put together your own song list just for modeling.
I have a few CDs that I use for modeling. I tend to update them from time to time, especially when certain songs get played out for me. I thought it would be fun to share my latest song list of my "Model Mix" CD that I currently use. This particular batch of songs have great beats that make my body move and totally make me feel sexy. Of course I don't use it for all my shoots and sometimes I'll choose more mellow music depending on the theme of my shoot.
It helps to ask the photographer you're working with ahead of time if it's okay to bring music. Most won't mind at all and may already have their own music ready to play. Sometimes you'll have to shoot with no music in the background but if there is a chance to play some tunes then go for it! Be sure to play music that is free of explicit lyrics (radio edit versions are ideal) and while many photographers are open to all kinds of music, it never hurts to be polite and ask what their musical preference is as well (they have to listen to the music, too!).
