Answering a Reader Question #355
Hi Dania, I have a question regarding tear sheets. This photographer that I shot for is putting together a natural hair project. She says the pictures will be on her website when the project is finished. Since I participated in the project does this count as a tear sheet. I'm just wondering because then I could add it to my book. Oh and what is the technical definition of a tear sheet.
Hey there, Anonymous! Yes, the images of yourself that will appear on the photographer's website count as tearsheets. Because they are in a digital format, they fall under the category of "digital tearsheets."
The technical definition of a tearsheet is any published/printed image that you appear in as a model. Online modeling images that appear on websites, online articles, advertising banners, etc. also count as being "published," therefore they are a part of the tearsheet family.
