I’m positive my husband thought I was crazy when I sent him a message one fateful Friday afternoon asking him to be a hand model.
We were leaving town later that afternoon for a wedding in his hometown, and I needed someone to hold a few gourmet popsicles for me to take the images, then immediately turn them for the magazine. Unfortunately, none of my friends were available. And unfortunately, I have not yet mastered holding an object while photographing it. (Sadly, this still looks super awkward when I try this, so I never do it for assignments. It’s a recipe for disaster.)
When he got home, he said he’d help me out. We unwrapped the popsicles, and we went outside to photograph.
It didn’t take long, and I had my shots. He made it through the shoot unscathed, though one fo the popsicles did start melting on him.
And as someone who has never entertained hand modeling (or any kind of modeling) before, he did a darn good job. However, I doubt he’ll want to be my model again, despite hearing positive feedback to his photos from my boss and friends.
