Need some advice on a shoot...

I have to shoot a "calendar style" shoot for the Tilted Kilt chain of restaurants. Have to shoot their Tilted Kilt girls in their little outfits somewhere doing something in the restaurant... any ideas?

Trying to avoid the cliches here... Anything different I can do?

Thanks!

Sounds like a horrible gig Rob...I'm jealous!

First thing that comes to mind would be to choose your backgrounds wisely. Since you're essential doing a portrait, you don't want them to be distracting. I would, however, choose backgrounds that help further the story of the restaurant (i.e. dart boards, pool tables, bar & bar stools, etc...). Keep the focus on your subject but stop down enough so that the background doesn't blur completely. It should be seen (implied) but not sharp in most cases. I would also use a lens between 50-150 mm if possible, avoid wide. Let us know how it goes!

Thanks Dean! I'll post some of the pics here and get some honest critiques afterwards... :-)

Just not my usual gig so I'm a little nervous!
