I have new found respect for models.
Seriously. It’s a hard job and I only recently realised that I kind of suck at it. I have an expressionless face that refuses to emote.Okay so i have two expressions- the girl next door smile, and the gazing into space trying to be all naturally pretty. Any other expression just gets transformed into confused, cross eyed wierd looking pouty fishy face. The reason i realised this is because about two weeks ago i went for my first ever photoshoot because a newly launched magazine wanted to feature me on their cover page (For some odd reason they chose me i have no clue why). The photographer kept trying to tell me ‘Madam expression nahi aa raha’…till the point i was like ‘Damnit this is all my face can do- specially at 6 am on a sunday!!! I styled myself, and was told to be mostly bare faced for the shoot…and i took along two sets of clothing (actually i took along like 6, but there was no place to change and a slightly possessive boy got annoyed after about half an hr so two is all i got shots in). This is what i was wearing in the final pic that made it to the cover…
