The basic elements of trust are key to taking great photographs of Models. If the model is not comfortable, no matter how good the lighting and the pose, the picture will not come out right. A big part of comfort is trust. Especially with modern technology and social website sites -- posting to facebook, flickr, picasa, etc..., it is important to discuss 'Ground Rules' for taking shots.
We begin with an understanding from the perspective of models and strangers about how they feel about their picture being taken and what assurances make them feel comfortable posing in front of the camera. The key is communication and respect and the results will improve your photography tremendously.
