BLOG : "COACD confessions of a casting director"

I've found that blog.

http://coacd.blogspot.com/2009_03_01_archive.html

Here are a selection of "unusual faces"; skinny teenagers.
There are many things I am fascinated by here ... not quite sure what exactly ...

The idea of Beauty, which is very subjective ...

One thing they've got in common : they are all extremely skinny and amazingly tall with spider arms and legs. Very, very unusual bodies actually ....











This picture below ... how one of those girls has been turned into a "model" ...

I guess what I am interested here is how these girls have been turned, from ordinary girls with unusual or/and beautiful features, into icons of beauty ....
... the shift ... the metamorphosis ...

For most of them you can tell that they are aware of what is happening when their picture is taken : they are acting like "models" but still look "ordinary".
And they are still imperfect : spots, tired eyes, not the right hair style .... :

I think I really would like to try to take these kind of shoots ... See what happens when taking photos of you in usual clothes and settings, but then posing or/and looking at the camera as if you were doing a casting ... ??

Then try the same but with make-up + sofisticated clothes + hair style and I would work on the picture ...

What do you think of the way they look at the camera, considering what you like about professional models ?

There is definitely "something else" happening in some of these casting portraits, something you cannot define ... maybe it's got nothing to do with fashion, maybe I'm looking for something else ... I don't know ... I'm a bit lost ...

I think I really need to start taking pictures, see what happens ...
