How To Take Proper Digitals
Digitals are a way for clients, agents, photographers, casting directors, etc. to know what YOU look like. A lot of modeling photos have a good amount of makeup and hair styling involved. Then, they get photoshopped/edited, so the final images can end up looking nothing like the model does in-person.
Obviously, people like to know who's going to be walking through their door for a casting/go-see/photoshoot/meeting...
Here's an example of what a good set of digitals looks like:
As you can see, you should try to get a lot of different shots. Some up close headshots, some waist up, some full-body. Some straight on, some profile, some at a 1/4 turn (between straight on and profile). Some smiling, some not. Models with long hair should pull it back for the 1/4 turn/profile shots to keep their jaw line exposed.
You can have someone take them on your camera phone (provided it’s of “decent quality”). Try to find a room with a lot of natural light and a non-distracting background. Include as many shots as you can, and I'll select the proper images to form a quality set with variety.
You should wear no makeup and have your hair down and natural.
Do not over-style your hair. Less is more.
