287. Modeling tips from an Ace-Model

Becoming a world class model is not an easy joke.A few necessities to become a top class model are

  1. Good looks
  2. Attitude
  3. Smile
  4. Confidence
  5. Dressing sense
  6. The knowledge of posing in front of the camera.

My niece Jolena (She is just a one and a half year old baby) is already all set to become a model for the next generation. If she finds any camera in her visibility, she knows what to do in front of it. Her mother (My sister) is her costume designer and official photographer.

Jolena's brother Jeremy is her hairstylist. To become one top notch model, you need to have all the specialists around you. When Jolena wanted a Public Relations Officer, i volunteered for the role and i was indeed lucky to get my job. This blog-post is a portfolio of some of her modeling poses. Below each photograph, Jolena has her own comments.

I call this, "The relaxed traditional Indian girl pose".All you need to do is sit in a slanting position and make sure that you rest your hands on a slightly raised platform. In the above photo, i pulled down the mattress and removed the bed spread. My brother is sleeping on the couch behind me. The dress i am wearing is called "pattu-paavadai". It is a south Indian dress.

In this photo, I added a glint of smile and you can also see me throwing a little bit of attitude. The whole idea is not to look at the photographer during the photo shoot. This gives a natural effect and you can see the difference from the first photo.

This is a simple, casual all-smile pose that i do with ease.My mom troubles me by making me wear these gold bangles. Can you see that my ears are also pierced. These old people do all sorts of crazy things on us.

Some times I intimidate the photographer by looking right into the lens. My brother was my hairstylist for this snap. I am infact hiding my brother's pencil box behind my back.

Yea! Girls rock!! That is the message I want to convey here through my T-shirt.Guys! Did you hear me or should I say it again? and finally...

I leave it for you to comment on this one...

  13. I dont know whats with the new generation, either they're very photogenic or they have very quick reflexes to relax and pose when the camera come in the radius of 10 meters. I mean really!

    She's breathtaking adorable. But then kids always are :)

    sad fact: they grow up.

  22. cute....Jolena is an angel of beauty and smiles.....a star of charm...!!!

    i loved her pics...!!!

  23. Trust me Chriz, you KNOW how to make people laugh! And yes, you have called your blog 'humorous blog' not for nothing I can sense!!!

    Of course, the captions allied with the photographs were cute and 'hitting' in a humorous way.

    Aside: Making people laugh and smile is a deed I put higher than any act of charity. Cheers!

  24. Step aside people, THE SUPERMODEL is here! And Chriz, get me her autograph, before the line becomes too long! Such a cutie pie she is! An angel there! :)

  25. Beautiful niece n nephew ! They are in for their modelling furture already !

  34. Thank you mama. You Did a gr8 Job. (Last pic than konjam vekkam)

  35. cute indeed!!! :) and yes for the last snap, comment would be ...."Best cheeesee smile"

  36. D Rat looks left and right.. hides the white towel bundle under arms which is kicking her mercilessly... runs into the dark alley leading to her place... ouch gets a huge kick on her tummy... Jolena free s herself from the towel bundle and says "Ippo theriyudha naanga Robin soap en use panrom nu.. fresh and energetic!!"
    :-D so much for trying to kidnap Jolena!!!

  37. She will for sure become an amazing model if she wants to

  38. Good one Chriz! The humour hitting hard as ever!!!

    And, I left a comment earlier where I had said lofty things about humour as being more touching and significant than any act of noble charity. Somebody has swallowed it maybe ;)



  39. A cute model in making :) ...
    she's damn cute .. her brother vl surely have to quit the job of hair stylist and take up the permanent job of keeping her admirers away in future :)..
