"May I take your picture?" Photographers, Models and People on the street

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.

Meeting in Parking Lot of Austin Music Hall and walking past 360 Condos to Town Lake.

    Although maybe not the best day (being Easter and all), we still found many good subjects to shoot. I ALWAYS enjoying shooting more with friends than solo :)

    Someone just told me that this shoot is on Easter Sunday. So we are expecting a low turn out. Anyone who can't make it, please un-RSVP. Otherwise, I'll see you there! Plans are still the same except maybe with some candy or chocolate :)

    Hey Allen, Thanks for your effort to inquire about models for this shoot. I am going through several replies to the email you sent out and models will be joining the shoot very soon.
