Spray-n-Pray? Quality before Quantity!

How many pics snapped does it take before you enter the overkill realm of the spray-n-pray approach? Resist the digital temptation to spray-n-pray! Instead, make the experience a QUALITY experience, rather than simply a QUANTITY experience. And don’t overwork your model.

Your “Setside” Manner

In a nutshell, “working well with the girls” means there’s never any on-set drama that’s caused by the actions or the behaviors of you, the photographer. Shooting sets aren’t strip clubs and they’re also not social environments intended to provide you opportunities to “score” with models. Therefor: Be and act professional. Be a Gentleman!
