New blog contest! How to: Models

We promised you a monthly blog contest so here is our new challenge for this month - How to work with models.

Some of you are experts in landscape, wildlife or urban photography. You might be able to shoot all kinds of photography, but when it comes to shooting people, there are certain principles a photographer needs to know.

Share your experience with us and win money by collecting useful votes from our community: $300 (first place), $200 (second place) and $100 (third place).

Answer the questions we all ask when it comes to working with models: how do I find them, what is the cost, how do I find the perfect setting, how do I make them feel comfortable, are there differences when working with children, women and men models? What about if they are of all ages and all kinds of professions etc. Or, are YOU a model? Teach other models how to strike a pose and make a session go as smoothly as possible with amazing results.

Before you start writing, please check our guidelines here to make sure your article is eligible for the contest.

As mentioned before, the voters need to have a minimal experience on Dreamstime: as photographers, buyers or blog writers. One click on the Useful tool = one vote.

( blog contest) modeling and be an amazing experience. When working with models we want to make sure that are models are comfortable and relax in front of the camera. You want to boost their confidence by giving them compliments as well as possibly guiding them 2 positioning and exactly what you're looking for out of the shoot. I'm taking big shots or directions we want to remind the models to look at exactly into the lens one thing that is so my daughter when shooting her is pretend that you're making love to the lenses. What does pending on the look you're wanting you can ask it something serious, sad, funny or happy to get the look out of their eyes that you're wanting. Make sure the air is relax and if they feel like they are number one in the shoot and in your eyes!

The world is beautiful, money, but they earn some good man. Making some of them into murals .. by money. It's not eternal. . Attempts to love others from the heart. The people of this world want to slow down, but the rulers do not want it to change the law and then the change of people. The aliens are actually saying. But the Bible says that they are actually from above. From a long time there is a kind of spirit creatures in our midst. . They know the superstitions .. Some people ask for beauty .That does not slow down the family. It is based on a peaceful good character. My brother is my sister.

Thank you for this blog contest. I would just like to ask, is there anything I have to do to within the blog ( title, description, tags) to allow Dreamstime reviewers and / or readers to know my blog is for the contest ?
