Posing Tips and Challenges
with Children, I would say the main thing. Don't drop them. That's just my own personal advice. Uh, so the same goes with pets, and that sounds funny, but no, you're having toe hold in very interesting situations. If you do not feel comfortable. If you don't feel like you have sticky hands, get assistance. Just because you saw me go up there, right, you know, and do these things does not mean it's a good idea if you do not feel, you know, comfortable. And you got a really good grip. Also, especially with Children. I had him. It was a cooler day, but I would probably have him where Jacket anyways with something like us. That way I can have my hand up where I really got a good hold of him on, and yet you don't see it because the jackets covered. So I'm holding onto his entire chest on the inside and I will have to photo shop out is maybe my elbow, Right. So make sure that however you consort, disguise where of your holding that's best, or if you can hold in another secure position. That ...
way, if you were covering with one part but you held it in a different position earlier. You can composite those two together, so that can also help. But sometimes you just need the, uh, healing and clone stamp tools. Right? Because you're gonna have something in there, so don't be afraid of that, but yeah, don't drop your Children or especially someone else's child. Any job eso make sure they have a secure hold and do do things. They're smart. Use a team as much as possible. Uh, okay. Pets. Yeah. Same thing in this case will have bucks north there, which is on the back of the coming out a little bit. Uh, I've never worked this animal, but we have ah, um animals owner here. And so that way she'll be working with Buck Snort and be able to control entreats. That helps, too. Right? That's one for the dog. Uh, let's see. So yet, in general, uhm, I'm going to be making sure that we're trying to minimize hands. Let's see, it looks like she's wearing the gray shirt. So I bought just ah, big baggy large gray shirt to try to make it as easy as possible for selection special with a dog's hair, which is both white and blacks could be so easy, right? What could go wrong? Yeah, let's have levitating Children. A dog on lighting that we've never set up before. Perfect for life situation. So? So we'll see what we can. Plus when you see it, I've mentioned this. The dog already looks kind of pre photo soft miniature, which is so adorable. But it will also make challenges on as we're going through and and making sure that it looks right, Right. So, yeah, question. Would you recommend somebody to wear like gloves that could be easily composited out, as opposed to hands and fingernails and all that stuff? It depends on how how far you want to go, so that can make it easier. Depends on where you're holding the animal. Yeah, great questions. So you know what? What to wear in this case, I'm hoping that gray shirt will work, but usually it's just whatever, you know, whatever I'm wearing, whatever I'm holding and clone stamp, it's not that difficult to make just fingers disappear. Something else What's hard is one you know, as we might see, entire sections of hair is sort of indention. We have the hand there. I have to invent some other things. But in general, if you can make it easier and you have gloves that are flat gray co for it. But typically, I just expect that, you know, try to minimize it where it can show. It was easy enough. Thank you. No, Uh, under 10 bucks on Amazon for a flat grey. Don't get the ones with the textures. Anytime you do gray for assured, by the way it gets those little texture sweatshirts get one that's a flat one. That way will be easier for hair selections, but yeah, try to minimize it. But don't go over the top and say yeah, question. So are there any other sort of body parts in addition to the hands that are the most challenging that people should consider? Like feet legs is tell us a little bit. Sure, Uh, so as Matt and some the other amazing experts here have talked about so far, you know what they say is tried. Avoid anything that's touching the ground, right? That's why don't make everything levitating. You don't have to know. Uh, you know, there's still point. Let's say that the baby walking on the crib, you know? So I had to hold him in just a way that I made sure that you could see the foot was touching that crib riel to put the right shadow on there. So it's not just enough to have a child in there. And even if they're close to something that's there, it will still usually cast some kind of shadow. So just be hyper aware of how the light is falling on whatever you're shooting. But yeah, so it's a challenge. Your hair is a challenging one. Uh, usually I'll have my entire arm, you know, holding on, making sure again, he doesn't fall, uh, and so have to clone stamp out if you're it's a good idea to have your child wear more solid colored clothing, right? So black pants. Great, right? This is black. I could literally probably paint black along the case, and we'll look right. So try to think ahead, not where you're cheating, but you're kind of cheating a little bit, uh, making it easier on yourself.
