Getting a Natural Smile From a Model

Yuri Arcurs shows in this video the difference between a full and laughing smile of a model.

The most important is to get from your model a natural smile. Also you should try to have the model freeze between shots. It is what professional models do. A good model controls her emotions and pose and waits before the photographer instructs her to change something.

If you need a laughing smile, ask your model to tilt her head to one side and have her mouth half open.

She also should a bit over exaggerate by conveying a "ha" feeling.

If the shooting time is limited or the model is expensive it is a good idea to use a second shooter. Usually a second shooter can produce 15 to 20% extra images and shoot when you are idle.
