Photo Shoot Preparation 101


Here are some clothing guidelines to follow. It will help a great deal but remember the main thing is to relax and have fun!  You are in good hands! It is better to have too much at the shoot than not enough so bring a lot of clothes and don't forget to bring shoes and hosiery and other accessories. 

Don't forget to get a good night's sleep the night before. 

ACTORS
Think Spring – fun, casual, bold colors.  Avoid solid white, wild patterns and logos!  Gap, Banana Republic and Abercrombie and Fitch are good examples. Think layers!
MODELS
Your goal is to have the pictures on your comp card mimic ads you would find in fashion magazines.  Think VogueGQEsquireSeventeen and YM.  Keep it trendy, simple, and be creative!  Study magazines to duplicate styles. Try to create 3 looks: casual (Gap, Abercrombie), upscale casual (Banana Republic), and upscale (Bebe, Kenneth Cole, Express).  Create outfits you are comfortable in and that are flattering to your figure.  Have fun with it!
CHILDREN
 Choose fun clothing with bright colors.  Ad examples:  Gap, Old Navy, Target, and the Sunday newspaper.  Themes are important!

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) September 25, 2012
Sorina Frederiki Stor of Toronto is one determined young lady. When she was first selected out of over 200 applicants to Talent INC Canada and 3DLightFX to be among the top 20 young models to compete on line, Sorina made up her mind to not only place, but to win!
She along with her very supportive and enthusiastic family set out on a mission from day one. First they gathered examples of the 3DLightFX products, and created a brief introduction that Sorina memorized and greeted people with from one end of Toronto to the other. She set up shop in her neighborhood McDonald's, the Woodbine Beaches, and even at the Toronto EMS day at the Canadian National Exhibition.
Tom Wegrzyn, CEO of 3DLightFX said "No one could have anticipated the passion that Sorina emitted. Her drive and enthusiasm is what won her this title. She should be very proud of her efforts. She has created the benchmark for whom all others will be measured."
Talent INC Canada owners John Stevens and Doug Sloan could not believe the lengths she went to. "She really is a go-getter" said Sloan of Sorina. "It is what made us first want to work with her", he added.
As the winner of the 3DLightFX contest she will be awarded a cash prize, and a photo shoot at Talent INC Canada featuring the new line of products. The photos will be featured on the packaging for the new line of 3DLightFX products to hit the shelves in 2013.
