    6 pm is near perfect. as the saying goes, 'a good photographer (that shoots outdoors) will often miss breakfast and dinner.' early morning and early evening light is diffused wonderfully. depending on the day, you could probably afford to push that a little to 6:30, but that's splitting hairs.

    i got another question too ... i got this rock band (small time band, not "big top" ) who are interested in working with me for promo shots ... i know i should get some group shots, but do u think i should shoot them individually as well?


    its at their own risk, i told them i was an amateur :lol:


    *i put an ad in an online paper* :lol:

    no, im not charging them for it, nor paying them ... their getting free 8x10's and im getting more work experience .... i need to expand my portfolio ... once it gets to where i want it to be and more versatility ... then i charge them :D


    but i would love to do CD covers :D ... that would be great!!!!


    this is the email the guy from the band sent to me:


    i had a lady email me, this is what she said:

    I don't know if the time of day is as important as the conditions of the day. Overcast weather is prime photography conditions.
