Some magazine is doing an article on me/Quest Church and needed a very tight black and white head shot picture. So, I spent an hour+ this morning at Quest with some photographer in his mobile studio doing a photo shoot. He shot over 300 shots to find that one perfect picture. And after tons of the following instructions:
Sit back. Scoot forward.
Chin up. Chin down.
Lean right. Lean left.
Relax your forehead. Relax your cheeks. Relax your shoulders.
Move your face left. Move your face right.
Don’t look too angry. Pretend you like me…
I can now be honest and say, “I have no future in modeling.” I’m the most un-photogenic person.
Sadly, he did not find the perfect picture but I’m sure he’ll find something [I hope] that he can use. But, if the magazine wanted the perfect photo, they could have just asked. I would have given them this beauty:
Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful.
