A really fun concept I played around with recently was my subject reacting to things off stage, or behind camera. It gives a really fun result instead of normal photos with the model looking directly into the lens. By doing an off stage shoot, you can easily create any story without needing anything else besides one single person.
By doing an off stage way of photos, you can capture any kind of emotion, so my model and I did flirtation, curiosity, and scared, with minimal props. It really is a fascinating way of telling stories in one photograph.
