    I am getting so nervous! Today will be the first time that I have photographed people that don't know me in anyway. My stomach is doing flip-flops! :pale:

    Well, turns out there was nothing to be nervous about because the session never even happened. :er:

    The guy had a church meeting 45 minutes away that was supposed to be over at 2pm and it didnt end until about 4pm at which time the clouds had rolled in and it started sprinkling.

    I was downtown around 2:30 just walking around and getting an idea of where I wanted to take them, waiting on them to call when they were on there way. The girl finally called me at 3:30 to let me know what was going on.

    We are going to try tomorrow, but they have church in the morning and evening so we have about a 3 hour window and not at the greatest time of day. Im praying for clouds sans rain again tomorrow.

    Aww no way. Nevermind,hopefully you have a few more ideas now and it'll be something to laugh about tmoz. At least it wasnt you letting them down.
    Good luck for tmoz!

    Thanks Emerana! :) I've seen your threads and you definitely don't suck! You will do fine. Do you shoot in RAW? That has been a lifesaver for me while I'm still learning. The hardest thing for me to do is boost my ISO if necessary so that I can use a higher F-stop. I'm always afraid I'm going to get grain but I've learned on here I'd much rather be in focus.

    Good luck on yours!

    yep, raw. big helper that is true. I always think I do worse then I think I do. I am really looking forward to getting a real comp. Mine broke and I do all my editing on a 11 inch laptop screen.

    Thanks for saying I dont suck, lol. I have a long ways to go thats for sure :)

    Ajay you will do fine. you have talent. just relax because you know what to do. you've done it a hundred times. just take lots of pics and act professional and never let them see you sweat(hmm...there's an idea for an antiperspirant commercial)
