, you know, she see lit up the screen only that smile she was looking like and she was having a blast. She was like, I was the best. Um, and yeah, uh, so I job so much fun, and she hasn't even seen these yet. Um, I have a question one year when you're when you're actually on the set, Do you and your in the middle of shooting? How do you determine what pose you're gonna get her into next? You just kind of see how she moves and then think Cool. That would look really cool if I had her do this. Yep, yep, yep. There's some standard poses that I like. I like the money shot things, or I know I want landscape of the body. I know I'm gonna shoot a nice but shot, you know, during the course of and I just kind of kind of feel her out, and I let it go on lighting to, like, I'm not gonna change my whole set up just to do some pose on the other side of the bed and kind of work in this area, depending what lens I have on my camera. But I like to keep her moving like crawled. So are we? Okay? Send up. Twist your hair. Go back against the mirror. You can. I thought like I try and move it That you just seemed so like It was so easy. It was not easy. And in your mind Are you thinking like, Is your mind going crazy Thinking? What am I gonna do? What next? What I'm gonna do next? Or is it just come so natural? Because that's kind of in my mind. I'm like, What's next? What's next? What's next? But actually, I'm very in the moment, so I'm not thinking what's next. My problem? Yeah, I'm kind. I'm really feeling around my house. She feeling? I know this was one of the first shots. She's not feeling that great yet, but I just love the shot, and I kind of like she's about to get on fire here. Um, you know, I just kind of I'm really with her. I'm with the right that looks just eyes dead on me to the light is lighting perfect. No, Like, I would probably photoshopped that shadow out some hair, maybe, uh, dodge the of it. So it's a little more lit, but, uh, you know, I'm just focused on that moment. And I think that would be a good idea for you not to be a step ahead of yourself. That's one of my That's one of my issues. I know that hamster on the wheel that you talked about That's in my head. Oh, yeah, all the time. Yes, it's still it's yourself down. The president, I Your timer comment was very good for someone like us who are trying to think fast forward to keep ourselves moving in the moment. Teoh get us trained to right where you talk about that today. You know, when I first started teaching, I would be like, move on. I like David on the back of your camera. Moved the 11 girl. I meant Robin. She's like, I have you in my head now when I'm shooting look like move on, OK? Eso yeah, I move on quickly, but I'm not really thinking ahead. I'm very much with her in her. Her mental state or remote emotional state, actually, is what I'm focusing a lot on. What does she need from me right now? Um, and this was our lingerie model. Rocked it out. Rave in. Look at those legs had to go way back. Um um I just love that look. And I love that green and the goals. It's all working for me.
