Keith asks me questions regarding fashion nudity vs. glamour and what they mean for photographers. If I sound slightly annoyed, you're not imagining things.

Rules of Engagement and True Intentions

Keith and I discuss the situation of a specific model who has a personal rule where she won't do implied nudity until the second shoot.

Thursday, June 4, 2015


Keith was talking through his presentation notes for the Working with Modeling Agencies Workshop. He suggested that photographers discuss with modeling agents the possibility of submitting their test images to magazines. That got us talking about setting precedents and expectations. The conversation picks up midstream.

Git R Done!

"How involved are you with model development ? What do you say to a model when you want her to work a certain way to achieve a look such as from your editorial portfolio?"

I say, "Git R Done!"

Go-To Lighting Setups

What's a "Go-to lighting setup"?

If you've taken a workshop or a webinar with me in the past, you'll know that I strongly advocate a few "go-to" setups that you can nail every single time.

You'll also know that I recommend you demonstrate this proficiency as the first "set" throughout the test shoot. Yes, we're talking about test shoots. Obviously if you're shooting a campaign, web, beauty, or something more specific then the following doesn't really apply.

Why use a "go-to" setup?
