Beijing, China -- Working with Zao Boa is not only a great experience, but an intercontinental one. When you are on a shoot where no one speaks English, its a challenge. As a model you have to be watching his every move, glance, and action--which most times is very hard with Asian people, they don't express in their face like western civilization. Its important to take other clues, such as, where is the light, what is the setting, what can the clothes do. For example, the big gold dress was very wide, not tight. To express its fullness I was flipping it to get this diagonal angle to play against the lines in its ribbing. If I had just let it there, without walking or spinning it would have hung there like a limp rag. It was screaming to be flung, floated, or moved. The texture was soft and spun sunlight. As a model its your job to feel the atmosphere and clothing and light to blend it together and give the photographer a feeling to capture with his magic eye.
