One costume change in a public loo later (I’m sure this is how the top models work too), I was already feeling ready for my close-up.We were outside a cafe and a few passers-by were giving me the odd glance, but by this point I was starting to learn what to do, laughing at my invisible friend who was slightly taller than me and to the side. After seeing the snaps on Saskia’s camera I decided I didn’t like my skirt and top combo after all. Fortunately I had one more outfit with me, so hurriedly changed so as not to waste any more time - lesson three: you want to avoid harsh sunlight in the middle of the day for the most flattering light.), I reckon everyone would relax into their photoshoot and ultimately love it.It’s not cheap though - prices range from £127 for a half hour shoot to £247 for 90 minutes.The article, called “First Impressions” and published in Psychological Science, also shows that first impression doesn’t significantly change the longer the person looks at the face.
Sure, I got some people shouting things at me, but after hearing that one of Saskia’s clients was heckled by none other than Russell Brand, I felt almost disappointed. Wind in my hair, fake laughter on point, I was beginning to wonder whether I could pack in journalism for a modelling career.So whilst I really like my pictures and it was a lot of fun, you have to be really serious about dating to shell out for a shoot.I have the pictures, now I just need to manage to commit to using dating apps.Or at the very least, can I not have someone follow me round all day taking pictures and telling me I look great?Whilst some of us may enjoy the limelight more than others (I wonder if Saskia tells all her clients the camera loves them?
