Portrait Posing Tips with Kim D’Eon

Posing Tips with Kim D'Eon | Jessica Blaine Smith

Sometimes my camera takes me to some fun and interesting places. I was recently asked by The Loop to do a video with Kim D’Eon to give some tips for how to pose in portraits. Although I was pretty nervous about being on camera, working with Kim and the crew made it a lot of fun. You can see the video and article here. Here are some behind-the-scene images as well as the quick portraits that I made of Kim that day.

P.S. Dorota Buczel of Alchemy Center did my make up for the shoot. I love her work!
