I love my model and heaven knows she is sweet, but sometimes taking pictures of Drew is like working with a wild raccoon.
She works best with no direction.
I must follow her around in her natural habitat.
It's as though she doesn't understand my language.
Food rewards are helpful. A single blue M&M can get her in a dress and out the door ready for a photo shoot pretty quickly.
I organized all my picture folders the other day and through the bazillion modeling pictures of Drew. Out of the bazillion are a handful of good shots and the rest are made up of the following...
playing with rocks,
playing with more rocks,
that wild hair in the face,
"if you take another picture of me I will make you pay" face,
and the final, "I'm done."
I just snap pictures through it all.
