Coming up! My new book! It is based on modeling experiences on the job I've had that took place after my memoir Almost 5'4".
One of the stories I am working on now is about hand modeling.
And when I've worked as a hand model for food magazines the shots are taken from above; the camera is angled down towards the food. It's a cool angle, and here is an article on food photography if that interests you, :)
As a model it is good to know something about the craft of photography, it is good to know why lighting and the right angles are important to get the better shot of the subject.
