Kaori came back home yesterday sporting a new hairdo. I love it and had to get some photos.
I’m so lucky to have such a photogenic wife who doesn’t mind getting in front of my camera. I know I have about 10 minutes before she’s had enough, so I have to set everything up ahead of time and shoot quickly.
I’m not at all good at giving posing directions — it’s one aspect of photography I haven’t worked on and I’m awkward with it. Rapport with a model and being able to give clear direction is crucial though for success.
You can have great technical skills, but if you can’t put your model at ease and get them into a natural looking position, you’ll never get a good photo. The success of these photos are all down to Kaori.
