AND No, it's not about how to handle kids at home. I can watch Dr. Phil or Supernanny for that :mrgreen: I recently applied a job to help in shooting at kids in an open-environment (okay, a mall) for Christmas. I'm suppose to be interviewed tomorrow - even though I cited in my CV that I don't have lots of experience in shooting people, only know handling D-SLR and a bit of Photoshop :blushing: . Anyway, I'm a bit scarred that the person who interview me might ask how am I planning to handle children of potential clients. I don't want to be caught off-handed, so I'm rather hoping the kind folks here can offer me a few tips Most of what I know is based on books and magazines, I must add. John Hedgecoe's is especially helpful. However, I think the members here are probably more practical than people who wrote those books :hail:. My task is supposedly just to photograph kids with Santa to capture "Santa Magic". Equipment is provided - the camera is supposedly rigged to a PC which can be instantly printed off, and they will provide lighting equipment too.
