Shoots are more textured, interesting and valuable if we can see the model demonstrate her physicality in many different ways. This is the most heavily-weighted assessment area for solo shoots: it’s the most important thing to do!
Prepare: The assignment for this assessment area requires access to the CD Visual Diary, a collection of inspirational images maintained by the Creative Director of abbywinters.com.
Contact your Trainer now and request access. Let them know if you prefer it to be shared by Dropbox or Google Drive, and nominate the email address associated with the relevant account. There are around 3000 files, around 2.6Gb, organised into several folders, but you do not have to syv it locally if you’re pressed for space on your local HDD, or if you are required to upgrade, you can just look at the material online in Dropbox or Google Drives interface – this can be painfully slow, however (depends on your internet connection).
Workbook: Download this 20 page (567Kb) PDF workbook, print in colour, and use it to take notes in, while watching the video.
