Several years ago I was asked to do a few portfolio photos for a woman named Jill, who had modeled in her teens and early twenties and who was interested in trying to get back into the market as an “older” model. I said, “Yes” but told her that I had never done anything like that. She had worked with many photographers and told me that she would help me get the poses she needed. Needless to say, I had fun.
The interesting thing about the job was that she told me that she wanted very little “photoshopping” done to her photos because a model portfolio should show potential customers what the “real” person looks like. Thus, I gave her what she wanted, though I did use a slight soft focus on this photo.
