iaheBy JiNNear Gap-

Here's the picture of a well-
dressed co-ed, Margaret HRrris,
'41, having her picture taken. Each
week this scene is re-enacted as
the photographer poses the "Best
Dressed," and it brings to mind two
points closely connected with the
wearing of clothes; that is, model-
ing and photography. Let us assem-
ble for you the points that have
been offered by women here at
the University who have done pro-
fessioral modeling, and let us also
ask Will Sapp, '43, one of the Daily
phototgrahers, to repeat his story,
which was recently printed, on pos-
ing for the camera. It may help
to tuck a feather in the cap of those
of you who are interested in a
career in that field.I
It seems that you and your person-
ality are the important thing. All
kinds of "you's" can be used in pho-
tography for there's a call for a range
from children through all types of
beauties to old people. Modeling of
clothes in stores and shows, however,
is mostly for tall, slender women with
much personal sophistication, but
even here is a need for shorter girl
with just the right look for sport ana
campus clothes. This is the type that1
is employed in the college shopsj
where the "sophisticated lady" would
be out of place.
Even though every conceivable
type is used in photography, most
of those who are interested in this
field are our more beautiful sisters,
who plan to pose for ads or with
clothes in fashion magazines. And
if that's what some want to do,
they'd better be really beautiful, for
oyly extremely good features will
make a hit. On top of that, the
features must be definite with high
cheek bones, and chiseled nose. A
fine complexion and good head of
hair are also necessary. One must
be tall, five feet ten inches being
none too much, wear a size 14 or
16 and be definitely on the slender
One of those who offered informa-
tion about getting work in this field
suggests that you have pictures taken,
to show that you are photogenic, and
take them around to the various ad-
vertising agencies near here. Ther
keep in constant touch with them
drop around for chats with the sec-
retary, remind them of you. Another
thinks it is best to go straight to
New York, and have interviews with
the various schools and agencies. If
you want to wear clothes for stores,
not the camera, this can also be done

And about make-up. You can hard-
ly wear too much to please the photo-}
grapher who is seeking a contrast
between white skin and dark lips.
Trivial as these points may seem tor
be, they can make an ordinary photo
It's the light colors that photo
graph best, so remember this when
you are choosing your wardrobe for
the picture. All dark colors, no mat-
ter how differently toned, will pho-
tograph practically black.
When the shutter is about to click,
your hands may begin to feel big,f
for your lack of knowledge of what
to do with them. If you have this
trouble. carry a book, purse or anoth-
er appropriate object.
Even if you have found that one
side of your face looks better than
the other (anal I pity you if it does)
don't contort yourself to present
that side to the camera. Real na-
turalness, which will show in the
picture, will look better than "your
better face" if you have to get in
an awkward position to show it.
Action helps a fashion shot just
as much as it does a football picture.
