N A T A S H A
One of my favourite things about taking people's photos is seeing everyone's various 'signature poses.' Ya know, that pose you pull because you know it works and makes you look slightly less cringey (in your opinion) than when you risk it and try doing that 'modelly' pose of looking slightly vacant, which usually just makes you look as though you've taken a whole bucketful of valium.
ANYWAY... I have one friend who insists on doing 'fashion leg' in every photo which is standing to one side with one leg neatly infront of the other. Another does an insanly intense stare right down the very center of the camera lens like that hideously scary painting in Ghostbusters 2, and I myself pull the whole head-slightly-tilted-with-slightly-smug-semi-smile pose. I blame Tyra. Clearly my friends and I have paid far too much attention to America's Next Top Model.
I digress... When I asked Natasha for her photo for a series of 'good hair day' shots, she seemed very timid and a little reluctant. Then as soon as she was infront of the camera, it was like BAM and she pulled this little modelly stance and looked amazing. I especially like the close up where she is most definately 'smiling with her eyes.'
