1. Understand the Importance of Modeling Digitals

Modeling digitals, also known as polaroids in the modeling industry, are a set of photographs that showcase a model's natural look. They are typically taken against a plain white background, with minimal makeup and simple clothing. These photos allow agencies and clients to see the model's raw potential without the distractions of heavy makeup or fancy clothing.

2. Dress Appropriately

When taking modeling digitals, it's important to wear simple, form-fitting clothing. This allows agencies and clients to see your body shape and proportions. We recommend wearing a plain black or white t-shirt, jeans, and a swimsuit for women, or a simple pair of shorts for men.

3. Master the Poses

Modeling digitals typically include a full-body shot, a three-quarter shot, and a headshot. At each distance, it’s important to get full frontal shots, diagonal shots, and profile shots. At FotoLab Studio, our professional photographers will guide you through the process, ensuring that you hit all the necessary poses.

4. Keep Your Expressions Natural

The goal of modeling digitals is to showcase your natural beauty, so keep your facial expressions neutral and relaxed. Avoid heavy makeup and let your natural beauty shine through.
