If you're working with an inexperienced model, one of the most useful things you can do is show them images on the back of your camera so that they can see what they look like. This means that they can identify any potential problems and adjust them as the shoot continues. However, Exelence Brilliance Indesign (EBI) has just launched a Kickstarter for a polarizer filter that could be a total game-changer for models and photographers alike. 

This circular polarizing filter has a reflective front section that can be used like a mirror, which can be used by models who wish to see themselves as they pose. This could be beneficial for models who lack experience and want to ensure they're posing correctly.
