frothy

don't like coffee
the flavour
or the beverage
but this looks good even to me

this past weekend
saw me sliding
the wrong way
down the learning curve...
things I wish I had already known
when shooting a large group of people:
-take at least five minutes to set up the shots, making sure people are not obscured by others and are in tight enough. Touch the people if I have too! Set up with computer too!
-keep one person with me who knows everyone’s names to help with herding and posing!
-check shot for faces being obscured -for focus in right area and for lighting bouncing off of glasses
-keep other people with cameras away from behind or beside me, instead offer them a turn after I get my shots in! This keeps eyeballs focused on me.

NOW I know.

Looks like chocolate milkshake!

Thank you for the tips on group photography. It all sounds very complicated and I think I'll stick to groups of 3 or less.

When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
