I have been fortunate enough to photograph myself (and my friends) for all of my modeling gigs. I love to see what others look like when they are wearing a swimsuit, and I love to see the transformation that I leave in their wake. It is great to see women who have had to go through the same thing as me and to know that I am their inspiration and they are mine.
I’m not sure how swimwear models work, but if there are any of you reading this, you have to know that models are usually in revealing outfits to show off what they can do, and that they have to wear bathing suits because they can’t walk. I think this is because they are so used to doing things that they wouldn’t normally do because they are so used to the attention they receive from others.
This is a bit of a problem for photographers, since we are the ones who get to do this stuff. We are also the ones who do the actual work, so we have to wear lots of stuff to show off our bodies. This usually gets us labeled as the bad guys and the models are seen as the bad girls – both of which are true.
Photographers are usually encouraged to wear what we want and to be as natural as possible. But this is not always true. In fact, a few years ago I was photographed for a swimsuit model shoot for a magazine and I had to wear a bikini that I had made in my own home. I was so nervous (and embarrassed) I wore a sports bra and had to put on a pair of high heels. It was so embarrassing, I did it again a few days later.
This is one of those situations that you just have to laugh about when you think about it. You are a photographer and you are looking for a model with a body that you would like to photograph. But you have to ask yourself, “Would I ever want to see this model naked?” It’s a lot harder to be comfortable and confident in your own body if some random person sees you and thinks you are gross.
This is one of those situations where you would do it again, but not in the same way. You would not even be aware that you were a photographer until the second time you posed for it. You would probably have thought that your posing was a little weird since you were all alone in a room with nothing to do for the past few hours. You would probably have looked at your camera, looked around, and then thought, This is weird.
As you can imagine, swimming suits are sexy, and you can’t really take a nude photo with a camera you didn’t buy. That would make it illegal, so the usual rule of thumb is to keep your camera in your pocket. That doesn’t mean you can’t use your phone. As I found out in the past week, a lot of young women in the U.S. are taking their cell phone pictures of themselves.
But the best part is that many of them have a photo on their blog. The image above is the one I got on my phone. If you scroll down to the bottom you can see that she also has a photo for her blog. It looks like she got a lot of requests too. But I guess that’s what happens when you go from the beach to the pool.
One of the advantages of being the kind of girl who loves the beach is that it is a great place to take your phone with you. The problem is, you can’t always take your phone with you. Not just because you are restricted in what you can take pictures of, but also because you are limited to taking a certain number of pictures per hour.
This is a problem for any beach photographer, but especially one that is also into fashion too. If you are one of the many who wants to be able to take a decent number of pictures of yourself in a bikini, but you cannot, there are two solutions. The first is to buy what we call a “mini-camera”.
