I often shoot with models that want portraits for various sites. It breaks up the daily grind of client work (corporate, family and weddings). With paid work you are on the clock and must meet the requirements of the assignment or no pay. An even stricter rule I follow personally is never posting client work... EVER !!! It's even written in my contracts. Never understood how "professionals" take paid work and then post client images on forums like this, IG or Flickr. Anyways...

Models on the other hand, don't usually have an agenda and just want great artistic images. They will work with you to get good results. They want the world to see them and I take full advantage of this. This shoot was a prime example of that. Kindra is IG "famous" and in trade for my services I get to use the images for whatever I like so long as it's not commercial.

So this is one of my "directions" I give models that are fairly new to the game, and even seasoned ones. I say "Give me a pissed look... like you're pissed as your S.O." It make my assistants laugh as they know I will eventually ask for this. There are a quite a few other "tricks" I use but this is one of my faves.

This was shot in color and on medium format, I hate converting images to BW but this one kept calling for it. So here it is... The "pissed off" request with Kindra  >:(   :D
