i have new found respect for models all that posing while the cameras are clicking under the bright white lights can seem like an eternity even if it's just for a couple of minutes plus being told how to pose stress over makeup position arghhh imagine if you had to do that everyday acidradio had a photoshoot and what was only 33 minutes seemed like an eternity we had to go through makeup, costume, set design and then the actual poses being in a band we don't normally pose for photos or we do but we can control how we look like because we have our instruments with us we had to pose in a studio without instruments and pretend tohave a really great time you could say that everyone in the band is in good terms with each other but the situation seemed forced at first and then we started joking around and finally got in the mood to ham it up for the camera would you pose for a living? ever been in a photoshoot? how was your experience?

I experienced more than that actually. I didn't experience a photo shoot, but I experienced a VTR (Video Tape Recording). It was for commercial modelling. Yup! I tried out for commercials. I actually almost made it as a commercial model, but unfortunately, I lost my phone where they contact me. I'm not really into modelling, and I think for me, I'm not a model material, don't have any talents either. I don't have a single talent to be proud of. LOL. But they do call on me, when they have new commercials. I know that I would've contacted them and told them what had happened and gave them my new number, but then I realized that I'm not really into it, so why bother coming back? But I have to admit, I had so much fun! It was kinda awkward at first but you will then open up with the staff while they tell you what to do in front of the camera. I made a discussion about this experience of mine. If you are interested, you can check it out.

LOL. Oh yeah. Maybe, that really is a talent. Actually, I didn't sleep again and it's now 4:46AM here in my laptop.

I know that being a model isn't easy because they have to look great in front of the camera and they have to stick to diets. I could never be a model. I have been to a photo shoot, and I didn't like standing still for so long. I like to move around.

hi chip esterkhan nope not pretty enough for a photoshoot and too old anyway. the nearest I ever got to that was this group of library big shots came into our library one morning while I was busy putting away books and other media. they took shots of all of us at work whether we'wanted to or not as this was ordained from on high.,lol. some people actually took a minute to comb their hair or re apply makeup. well I did not so they were stuck with whaterver they got. It was supposed to be a traing shot for newly graduated library techs but they just shot the ones of uswho were non tech and just peons in t he library the ones who do not sit down to do their work. lol. I disliked the whole thing but never said anything to anyone about it. I would dislike having to pose for a living, as I am not photogenic at all.

All I can say is "Thank God I'm not famous!" lol. I'm not photogenic at the best of times so it would be my idea of hell to be told to pose in certain ways...unless I got paid a small fortune for it. Then you're talking!
