    hmm.. but is there any standard names for the themes? like storytelling, Gothic, angel, or even nudes? would the name be determined by the photographer or it is something written in the stars? ha ha

    I think they are asking, u want me to look sad, moody, happy, frustration, dont-care, etc. Most professional models can smile or cry in a split second...

    It is just a choice of words.
    Basically, u as the photographer, need to have a "concept" when u plan to shoot, and that "concept" may involve a certain "theme" (sexy, conservative, cute, etc), then while u shoot, u need to tell the model to show what kind of "mood" (facial expression and body language), then the model will give u that kind of "look" (smile, angry, etc)
