How to Interact with Model in Photo Shoot
This is your boy Bobby B man. You are in now with John Ricard Studio and it’s going down and I’m here today on promo for my new album the Rib Art that is installing as right now, not now but right now. All right, so make sure you all get the thing.
So today what we’re doing is a fancy shoot what we call a fancy shoot wear photos and not just only going to certain magazines all around the world. You know I’m saying so this is a boy at John Ricard as the photographer, great photographer does a lot of great work with a lot of artist. So we here the Rib Art install us right now, not now but right now so make sure you all get that and that we got this shoot and we don’t have a whole bunch of different outfits and I am just keeping real and reach out.
So check this out what I’m wearing right now, V neck black fit by COA which is a brownish shirt it may look like a basic T but this is like $4.00-$6.00 T shirt and it’s been a reduce we’re using the cycle and it still cost $60.00 box and this is of course the Gucci jacket, you go to the store and going to have a line and I mean I have to stay I must have jacket.
My favorite jeans right here this is my favorite jeans this are the true religions and you might see me with this all my life because they fit the fittest crazy and of course you go the retro jeans. You know I’m saying this like my favorite jeans right here so you know I mean that’s how we’re doing it and we’ve got a G shot and this one is iced out but this one the new G shot watches this is not the regular one and this crazy and of course I have this signature piece, this is the signature piece and that’s how we’re doing it and my signature and this is the red and balance team ringing.
So we move out of the studio and we came into this little hallway and like a stair case and this is a nice spot and I like it, unfortunate to have a spot like this there in my studio. Get me some break, give me a nice urban look, something very different than a clean white thing we did in the studio.
Let’s bring the hands near the face somewhere and that’s the shot just hold that for a couple and keep looking of again and bring the chin up a little higher and without camera. There is no too much changing of the jeans but we are in the wide but it kicks and these are the special valentine, Yohhi Yamamoto. Crazy right, we have a CD’s and a lot and sign jeans belt bb Simon, Affliction shirt, because if you work out in the jean I am definitely shows them and this is the affliction of the back and it’s crazy and you definitely see me I this of the jeans.
So what we’re doing now is a dark shot and remember we started with a white shot but when we’re doing a shoot like this you want to get the variety for different magazines so if you gave them light we also want to give him black so this is like a piece of flaxy glass, the seamless in New York city on and I think it’s called canal plastics on canal street you.
I’ve been waiting here with the beauty dish that’s the main light and sometimes we’ll use the bb dish and the situation like this that head gets too dark, so we put another light over here that bounces off the ceiling and lights up his head.
So with the two lights together we should be able to get some light on his face and still light on his hair so it doesn’t disappear into the black. Are you ready. Let’s do it so this is going to be just a little bit more straight serious because it’s black so you are going to do as much smile on this and you just do handsome kind of shot.
People sometimes wander about posing artist. How do you do it or whatever and the difference of each artist and most artist that I shoot with the kind of light up or hip-hop artist will let you pose them. Now you don’t want to over pose them and do the right, to right but you want to get me some type of guidelines because you also have shots in your mind that you are able to get and want to get something still and you want to get something smiley, you want to get some heads to toe and I want to get to have shot and we want to have with quarter legs.
So you have some shots in your head but then you also want to capture that artist and wherever he is. Some artist left and some guys will never feel like. See what gems are going to oppose themselves so that you capture the data and you want to add some of your own poses. Sometimes you can just give me a kind of general information you go, give me some smiles and we are not directing everything.
Other times you can come in and you don’t lower the shoulder and raise the chin and you just have to kind of be aware like are you annoying the artist. If you sense that, you are working on these persons and you know it’s like over directing him. The thing you want it back off let him do whatever he wants to do and in case you don’t get an artist like crazy and Little Wayne and you just kind of oppose them they’re not going to do with what you want them to do. All you can do is just shooting if they do it and sometimes it’s like the one shot you don’t get the variety but there’s no choice you can’t do anything about that.
But basically, you do what you can and it’s always when the child get settle down and it’s kind of view and get a shot.
