Walking, posing, smiling, thinking being a model. Training and preparations to Noel Caleb Jonah collection launch

Walking straight - models training 

Continuing to tell you about my model experience with Noel Caleb, that I was writing about couple of times, today I want to share some updates from our Jonah Show preparations. First model training was conducted on the 5th of March at usual place The Co. Professional model Jessica Ee, who is also chosen to run for Jonah under #9, gave some tips, how to walk on the runway, shared secrets, how to turn, look and stay straight, showing best of your outfit. 

Every girl tried herself walking on high heals, got comments from the trainer and girls. It was fun experience, but still was hard to realize and imagine, that real runway, more of laugh and relax. After all, it was time to get to know each other, as some models as Cattleya Clarisa were participating at the previous shows and could share their experience with newbies like us, bloggers. Each walking test was recorded to be analysed for girls future learning and improving. At the same time, there was last stage of outfits matching by designers of Jonah collection, I was writing about in previous post. And prof photographer was shooting girls in new collection outfits to chose the main face for a campaign. I love to take my pictures during my travelling and sightseeing around Asia, but I usually don't like to be pictured with white background of studio. As I don't see point for me to be isolated from the World. And it's quite hard to put any expressions on your face, as there is no background, that will support it. But that time I was excited about me being a model and trying new outfit, so I could relax and give some smile and pose a little bit in front of camera, even though the light was blinding. They say you need to think about something, remember pleasant moments, don't look at the camera. That's why some model look so out of the place on advertisements. They are just not with us, but somewhere in their own dreams. Somehow, I can't do this kind of cheating, I need to give a real smile, real emotion, because I think about people, who will see my pictures. Well, maybe I still consider that all that viewers will be my friends... Yes, it's different for models. They will be seen by thousands people... I suppose, nobody can smile to every customer walking inside the shop, restaurant, office... People get tired to put fake smiles to strangers. 
Okey, that's another story. I still try, how it's to be a model and will put updates soon, as next gathering is on 20th of March @ The Co, when Jonah models are going to host new collection launch for media, socializing in front of cameras with journalists, bloggers, fashion junkies and lifestyle people, wearing Jonah's outfit, makeup and explaining collection's concept. Meanwhile stay tunes and read about my model experiment from very beginning. Posts are below
