Tips to models before a photo shot
Before making a photo shoot, photographers we have to prepare them even before they happen. The same goes for the person being photographed / model. Most professional models know from experience what has to be done in terms of preparation before a photo shoot, but the same does not happen with inexperienced models or people who only occasionally do a session.
If you do not have much experience in modeling, here are some aspects you should consider to prepare for the shoot. Note that most of these aspects are more directed to female models. The more aspects you can follow your photos come out better and more confident you will feel in front of a camera.
Depilation: Make sure you take care of your hair removal. Make it at least 2-3 days before the meeting. So will allow any skin irritation disappears by the time of session.
Nails: Treat their nails. Make sure that the nails go well cared for. In short, colorless preferably, this allows coloring the nails in height according to the intended styling session. If pose with bare feet do not forget to also treat their toenails.
Hair: Take extra good care. See whether to dye your hair in order to hide any color of the root that is not according to the color you have at that time. This is no time for experiments, such as trying out new colors, new style, etc ..

Skin Care: The day before the session should exfoliate the body and face and moisturise the skin using a non-greasy lotion.
