We know you're excited and happy (is) the idea of a photo and that you will want
to be in good shape. And being fit is super important for a shooting to be
successful. But do not expect the day to start eating healthy, jog or go to the
gym! Diet and exercise program must be done on a consistent basis and

makeup before a shoot, abstain from doing so. You could be an allergic reaction

products that you know and you usually use. Wash your hair, introduce yourself
to shoot with with clean hair.
You should have ideas for poses and not wait several days before a shoot to
train yourself. But if you look at some magazines and catalogs before a photo

the clothes they wear or they. Because the poses are often dictated by the
garment for enhancing the best way possible.
