Not too many people know someone who is a hand model. I do. Years ago when I first got to New York I met a girl named Liz Barbour. She was a Ford hand model. I should mention she really did have nice hands. She used to go around wearing long sleeve gloves all the time. It sort of made sense back then in the punk rock days. Today it wouldn't go over so well. She even wore gloves to the beach. At a shoot, whenever you ask a hand model to just pick something up or turn the dial on a stove or something, they always do it over the top. They add way to much razz-matazz. That always cracks me up. Just pick the thing up like a human being. I will say that they are always cute and funny and great to hang out with for the day.
