In a second capture something that moves the soul.

Photography. Photo shoot. Aftermath.

“Wow!

I know what beauty is and IT ain’t it!”

The thought in my head, when I looked at the pictures from my latest photo shoot this morning.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s not like I got ugly all of a sudden. Or my self-esteem fell 100 floors down.

No.

I just did a really crappy job then, and my photographer was probably too nice to tell me that. Or maybe he was going after a different look. We got to figure that out.

My point is.

ANYONE can look beautiful or crappy in the pictures.

ANYONE.

The best top world model or a homeless person, who doesn’t give a damn about beauty often.

Photography is an art. Art of lines, of energy, of the moment, of postures, of alignment — bringing it all together to create something that produces emotion.

And I didn’t bring it together that day. I thought I did, but I forgot what it meant to be in a photo, how to show something worth looking at, how to make it beautiful, or thought-evoking, or awe-producing.

I need to practice more. Work more on posing and feeling the picture, the moment, the place, the energy.

Some people think, get lean, have good looks and you are a model.

No.

Modeling has a purpose — to produce certain feel, certain look, certain mood — and that’s a skill, that’s an art, that’s hard work.

In a second capture something that moves the soul.

Maybe I’m a perfectionist but that’s what modeling is about for me.

Creating beauty, capturing beauty, making some fleeting emotion permanent, creating visual content that says something, that inspires action, that makes you feel something, do something. Writing without words. That’s what modeling and photography is for me.

Telling a story that needs no words.

Different stories. Different emotions. Still magic capturing life.

Make the internal external.

You don’t get healthy and stay healthy.

HEALTH is a DAILY PRACTICE. One bite at a time.

Daily Bite of Health

DON’T TAKE IT PERSONAL.

WORK ON IT.
