RENDER MODELS WANTED
GRender Studio is looking for models like you!
For this Photo Contest, applicants will submit photos of themselves in various poses that are common to daily life; whether that is standing, sitting, walking, talking with friends, exercising, and so on. Three finalists with the best be chosen, with the winner receiving $250 as a reward, and the two runners up receiving $125 for their efforts.
To capture ideal photos for this contest, GRender Studio is looking for photos of figures at various angles with a reasonable camera height (eye-level), good lighting (a window behind the camera is best, and cloudy days provide the most even lighting!), a plain background, and with the camera position far enough away so that the whole figure is in the shot. See the images below for ideas for different acceptable poses, well as our Photo Contest Demonstration Video and Tips for Framing Shots.
Have fun and be natural with your poses! The GRender Studio team is excited to see the final results!
Contest ends on October 15, 2020.
Consider the figures below to get inspired for your own photos. Experiment with different props, stances, and angles, and try to take photos with a variety of outfits, depending on the pose (for example, fitness clothing for active poses, or business casual for walking or sitting). The possibilities are endless!

Tips for Framing Shots:
Position your camera on a tripod or steady surface about 8-10 feet away from you, so that your hole figure is in the shot. If possible, set up a sheet behind you, or use a blank wall as the background. Choose an area that has even natural lighting; if you are near a window, either position the camera in front of the window, so that the light is hitting you directly, or position yourself so that the window lights the space in the frame from one side.
Take multiple shots from varying angles in the same position. If you are using your smartphone as your camera, the self-timer can be very helpful for this. Remember to make sure that you take your photos in Regular mode, not Portrait!
