Answering a Reader Question #293
This might be a bit of an odd question, but do they usually play music or something at photo-shoots? :]
Hi there, FionaAlanna! It's definitely not an odd question at all! :-)
It is not uncommon for music to be playing during photoshoots. Oftentimes the photographer will have his/her iPod hooked up or will use Pandora. Or the model may bring their own music to play. It all depends but in general, music during shoots is welcome, especially since it prevents working in complete silence, which can be awkward and uncomfortable.
Whenever I'm at a shoot and there isn't music, I'll politely ask the photographer/client if it's possible to get some music to play. They're usually more than happy to accommodate this. I actually create my own mix CDs of songs that get me into the right mood, depending on what the theme is. Posing to music is an awesome way of creating dynamic and great poses, as well as help models really let loose.
