If you’re a fashion model working with Taobao, an Chinese online retailer a la Amazon, your photographer expects some next-level posing from you. In this video posted by the Facebook page Shanghai Expat, we get to see what this looks like in real life: 30 poses hit in just 15 seconds of shooting.
Rapid-fire posing is nothing new, but it’s still hard to believe that each one of these split-second poses turns into a different look option for a catalog. Over the course of a day’s shooting, these models will reportedly pose up to 150 outfits, taking just one minute to change outfits and a 10-minute lunch break.
At that pace, we’re not entirely sure how the photographer is keeping up. Have you ever had the opportunity to work with a model at this skill level? What was it like? Tell us in the comments.
