Child Modelling is all in the Smile

Child female modelChild modelling is all about that cheeky grin; the image that screams youth and invites us all to remember our younger years. Headshots are the medium through which an agent will see the potential in your child. If they don’t make it, it’s not their fault, but it’s all about giving them the best chance to do something interesting and fun, and be able to put away some money. In many ways, taking a good headshot of a child model is the same as for any other model, although most adults probably won’t lose a tooth during a photo session! That actually happened to one of our photographers who specializes in photographing children. The boy in question realized one of his baby teeth was falling out but he remained calm and continued the shoot, like a professional!

Initially you will only need to send in a couple of colour snaps of your child, they do not need to be professional photos. Natural photos work best and do make sure they are clear and in focus and that at least one of them shows their face and features clearly. The child modelling agency will decide whether they use those images or ask you to bring your child along for a photo shoot. Depending on your child’s age you should really update your photos every 12-18 months. Children change a lot very quickly and you don’t want to misrepresent them and show up to a casting only to be turned away immediately.

What To Look For In Sunglasses To Ensure Enough Protection

Jessica Alba SunglassesIt is difficult to imagine that there is anyone out there who does not realise the harmful effects that the sun can have on our skin. We are all well versed in the importance of sunscreen, but few of us really pay attention to the amount of damage that the sun could be doing to our eyes. The reality is that we need to be making sunglasses as much of a priority as sunscreen in order to stop ultraviolet rays from causing cumulative damage to our eyes over the years resulting in serious problems with our sight. However, before rushing out to buy a pair of sunglasses from the local store, it is worth considering whether or not they can offer any effective protection!

How Do Sunglasses Protect Our Eyes?

The light which can damage our eyes is UVB – the same rays that burn our skin. This light measures between 320 and 390 nanometers. This means that in order for sunglasses to be effective they need to block out at least 95% of these rays. Often sunglasses are marked UV400 to indicate that they block out any UV light under 400 nanometers. It is the level of UV protection that is important and not how dark the tint is. The tints are largely cosmetic and in fact, the darker your glasses the more your pupils will dilate and the more light they will allow into your eye, so lighter tints are actually more important.

Are Cheap Sunglasses Effective?

It is often assumed that in order to get the appropriate level of protection for our eyes we have to hand over large sums of cash for expensive designer sunglasses. However, this may not necessarily be the case! What people fail to realise is that many expensive sunglasses are made by the same people making the ones on sale at the gas station for under 10 bucks! The important thing is not the price, but that you are choosing quality sunglasses which offer a good level of UV protection. A number of tests have been carried out in recent years which have shown that cheaper sunglasses are no more or less effective than their more expensive versions. The important thing is to look for a style that offers good coverage and which has a quality mark to certify that they block the UV that they claim to! It is wise to look for a UV400 sign on the tag.
