...ok .. so like I wrote in my 'off topic ' forum post ... I have found mehhh a model. She is a budding actress , just started drama at college and she hasnt a portfolio yet due to lack of funds etc. I offered to take some shots so we might get together not this weekend but next for a photoshoot. I need all the help I can get basically ! Hints , tips , whateverrrr ya have. Probably will do a mixture of outdoor and some shots in my apartment ( will buy backdrop fabric etc ). I'm probably borrowing my workmates D70 for it ( which I have never used ) Anyway , advice on backdrops , controlling light in my apt , ways of getting her to relax even, poses , shots that would go well in an actresses portfolio etc etc would be appreciated ! Cheers in advance.
