Back to the topic, I did go to the motorshow to try out using flash with my manual camera.. but i didn't and wont ask the show girls to pose to smile.. mm, maybe my common sense told me that i should not be that rude, they are not there to entertain photographer.
However, there is something i wonder, will their eyes feel not good when using flash? i am using a common hotshoe flash, actually they don't blink their eyes.. if the flash is hurting their eyes, how u do it in model shot?
And those model will normally smile for the photographer because:
1) they're paid to advertise for the product and normally will pose with the product.
2) they'll never know who's the guy using the camera taking them, might be some professional photographer from some magazine so it's better to smile.
3) if they dont smile, then the company will not use them the next time, unless the model look very cool without smiling and it complements the product then it's okie.
Well, yes the models do smile and pose out of their professionalism but they are by no means obliged to do certain poses that the photographers asked... Even those guys with press passes don't ask that much...
