Glamor Shots Extreme
and other assistants holding foil reflectors on the model. The model would pose and they would snap shots We saw another couple dressed up being “shot” in a similar way.
They were posing with their arms on each other, looking up, pointing, etc. There was yet another group being photographed-a family: husband, wife, daughter. They looked to be the typical tourists on vacation…but being followed by by cameraman, assistants with reflectors…setting up the shots. The little girl was skipping along a white-washed wall while her parents followed along. We figured this was a professional group shooting for a magazine or publication.
On Wednesdays we have a Chinese friend, Sarah (English name), Ting Chu, (Chinese name) who comes over to practice her English and teach us some Chinese in return. We told her about going to Ping Jiang and seeing the models being photographed, and wondered if it was for a tv show or something. She said,”Those were just regular people being photographed by professionals. It’s very cheap.” So, it’s like Glamor Shots. They dress you up, and take you in scenic areas, so you can look like either a very traditional Chinese woman, a romantic couple, or a family on a beautiful vacation! You’ll have great pictures to show everyone! The Chinese know how to take an idea and really “run with it!”
