On Friday morning in the model house, the girls were given new swimsuits to wear on their next photo shoot, which would take place at the beach that afternoon. They were also given make-up more suitable to the beach theme and had the option of wearing their hair in their usual style or the new style they got in their previous makeover. The models were seen socializing with one another before the shoot, but it’s unknown what they were giggling about.
As soon as everyone was ready, they went to the photo shoot at noon.
The models who decided to keep their new hair style were Yvette, Jessica, Karlie and Rei. (Ariel had a different hair style with her swimsuit outfit because her everyday hairstyle is not enabled for swimsuits.)
The photographer, Harley, was very busy taking photographs of the models for the next six hours, so I didn’t capture any screenshots during the photo shoot. The photos acquired during this shoot were fantastic! All of the models really put in their best effort and produced multiple beautiful images.
When the sun began to set and the lighting on the beach was no longer suitable to continue the photo shoot, everyone piled into a water taxi to go back to the model house.
I must say I’m a little disappointed that the models were not able to develop a suntan during this photo shoot, because it would’ve been lovely to see how they all looked with a golden glow to them. Although there wasn’t enough time to get a tan, several of the girls did take an opportunity to sunbathe while the photographer worked with other models, and some of them were photographed as they lounged on beach towels and soaked up the rays!
Gabrielle was one of the models who decided to sunbathe during the photo shoot, and the photographer was inspired to take a panoramic shot of her. The resulting photograph was Gabrielle’s best from the beach shoot, even though it doesn’t fit in her digital portfolio frame. The quality of the photo she produced cannot be overlooked simply because it is a different size than the usual images.
That brings us to the whole point of this episode: the elimination vote. The girls have participated in two photo shoots, and the skill challenge winner earned a bonus photo for this week’s judging. It is now time for you to decide which model does not have what it takes to become the Iconic Model. Here are the photos (in random order) for you to judge this week.
Once again, you are voting for the first model to eliminate from the competition. Do not vote for your favourite, or she could be kicked out of the competition by mistake! The model with the most votes will be eliminated from the competition and kicked out of the model house; she will not participate in any further skill challenges or photo shoots and will not have any second chances in the competition. This elimination is final.
