Some people will never understand it. Its their problem rather than ours
My parents, despite their age (70's) are actualy quite immature about it. My dad has a sort of Benny Hill reaction to some of my stuff. A Sid James chuckle and a smile. Many of the younger models may not recognise these references but just think 70's seaside postcard humour and you're there. My mum, she chuckles and usualy says something like, "she wants to go home and put her vest on, she'll get chin cough" (whatever that is) She is also curious about how it all works, questions like, "why do models want to take their clothes off in front of strangers?" I mean, how do you answer that succinctly !!? How do you explain that the question is wrong? Ive stopped showing my stuff to my mum. If its not posed and lit like a photo booth and the model isnt smiling like a school photo ..she doesnt get it. By way of example, there is a levitation type photo on my portfolio with the model, Poppy, floating in front of a window. Im quite proud of it. My mums first reaction? "Why is she doing that?"
