    Today i have my first paid headshot gig and im really nervous! anyone who knows me here knows ive only had about 3 months of photography experience but im pretty decent i would say. oh oh im nervous. don't want to look like an amateur! haha. ill post some results later. I am shooting 2 looks, one in a concert hall for a more mature, professional, concert look ( shes an opera singer). and since its nice and overcast today, some fun and hip pictures outside. and pointers or last minute advice guys?

    Two Points:
    #1 - watch out for skin tones, exposure and blinkies
    #2 -
    why are you taking on a project with minimal experience and charge for it?! The moment you accept the payment, you undertake HUGE responsibility and will have to abide by client's rules/regulation as well as deal with his/hers BS. Since you are accepting payment, if you do provide crappy work it doesn't take much to sue anyone these days...

    1. Tip pose is very important and is your responsability as photog to get a good pose.
    2. Watch your highlights on the general exposure on the camera.
    3. Take your time and never look nervous to the client and do not leave until you feel that you got the shot. Remember once you leave the place the is no way to retake the photos again.
