Casting Corrin  

     
When I was casting Corrin, I was very thankful to her manager Chris of Bossio Photography for shooting a very extensive series of shots capturing the entire casting process that you see here.

For me, the trickiest part of lifecasting is around the nose. Because of this, I prefer to have my model lay down.
