I need answers to a few questions! I am asking because you guys in here seem to be more apt to what you are doing than me and I only want to get better...not worse but apparently that is all I am doing...is getting worse! I have been suffering an ear infection for the last 2 months (procrastinated because I was in Tennessee and thought it was just the elevation in the mountains...)and today my A game is really thrown off because it is so bad today that I haven't a lot of balance...I just got out of shower and almost fell over it is so bad. I have a photo shoot at 2pm with a 19 yr old girl (that I grew up with so it isn't a paid shoot). I have all my backdrops, a box fan (floor fan to blow her hair....is that not a good thing to use?), a folding chair for her to "pose" on...what kind of poses could I do with that? And how do you get the photos where the subject is looking up at you and the lower half of the subject is blurred (like blurring the background) since my camera doesn't really have that option? Do I stand on a ladder or step stool and lift my camera as high as it will go or even hold it up in the air and shoot down? How do I acheive that look? Anything else you would like to let me know? Also, I have 2 lights, a tripod for my camera and my backdrop support (about 6-7 ft wide) so if someone can please draw me a diagram to show me how to position the lights so i dont get harsh shadows, that would be great. I have looked online everywhere and everyone is different and I have tried about 4-5 different ways and no luck so far.
