A few months ago, I posted about one of my most recent shoots, which was for a dating website (see: "Latest Shoot: Dating Website" for the details). I just got an email from the client with the ads that came about as a result. Below is the one of me and my "boyfriend" for the shoot, Paul:
Funny story: this image was shot in San Francisco, near the water, on a popular street/area known as The Embarcadero. The other models were sitting off to the side of us and in between the photographer snapping photos, we were all totally clowning around--we'd just finished lunch and were all a little giddy from full bellies and a tad tired from the long day of shooting. Before this photo was taken, we'd all been talking about the movie "Finding Nemo" and I had just done a ridiculous reenactment of the part where Dory was demonstrating her knowledge of how to speak whale. Everyone was cracking up (if you know the scene, you'll instantly understand why we were hysterically laughing). The next second, the photographer was like, "Okay, guys, time to work!" And here is the end result. :-)
While being professional, I admit that I'm a complete goofball on set, especially if the crew and client is really chill and casual and not uptight. I always find that bringing humor helps everyone relax and brings about a lot of great genuine expressions for the camera. I guess you could say, I enjoy being the comic relief!
