Day 31. What has been changed?
Do I feel more at ease in front of the camera? Yes. It’s much less weird to do crazy stuff facing the camera. I’m increasingly empathized with the role as a model. It’s more about the idea, the picture. Yet I do have days when I think to myself, it’s not a photo day. Fortunately I am not only the model … I can decide to make a leg-picture or hands-picture, or even hide my face.
How do I look at the pictures? Nobody is so critical about your appearance than yourself. You are the first one to see the imperfections. The exposure or the pose is always adjusted to get the most flattering photo possible. If this is successful, the next difficult step lies ahead : editing the photo on the big screen. I hide myself behind contrast, saturation and black and white conversion. I feel most comfortable with black and white photo’s because then, it is not quite me.
