    I have a photo shoot coming up this weekend, and to tell you the truth i'm both excited and a bit nervous. Nervous because i want to try and do my best and get some good shots because they are going to a car magazine, and excited because "IT'S A BIKINI SHOOT!!!" :D :shock: :oops: :D

    My fingers are crossed big time that this comes off (the shoot not the bikini), as it's by far the most challenging photo work i will have done to date.

    DOF is my big fear as i will need the car and the girl in focus as much as possible.

    Any last minute tips will be accepted greatfully

    u may want to bring a polarizing filter in case there's a glare coming from the car, that could be a potential problem if its sunny (metallic surfaces) and some sunscreen for the lady :greenpbl:

    I thought polarizing filters dealt with reflections in all but metallic surfaces...

    Yes, I envy you. I would love such a challenge.

    Gee....car magazine, girl in bikini lolling around hot car.... I can't speak for Manda, but possibly the simple :pig: factor? :LOL:

    Seriously, good luck with your shoot, Luckydog! If you want to make the guys green, you'll post the results. :wink:

    Actually, I was referring to "luckydog" :lol:

    But, now that you mention it...although I took it upon myself to post your name, you clearly earned it and therefore "bestowed" it upon yourself! :p

    Manda and Terri no reading below the askerisks ;)

    ************************************************************

    Yep, quite a lucky dog :) :) Although I don't have chase's authority, I crown ye "king luckydog the great" :king:

    We need a full report matey!!
    1. Post the Pictures
    2. Magazines
    3. Phone Numbers
    4. Don't forgot to tell the models that you are also a professional nude photographer, since they are already in bikini it shouldn't be a problem to go the extra mile :)
    5. Post any picture resulting from item 4
    6. And if they are willing to go nude... the next step is...
    7. Post any picture resulting from item 6

    Also remember to prepare for any situation, Justin Timberlake might be there to do a dance number so you have to capture the moment ;)

    Don't forget that lucky dog's photo site is is http://darryl465.fotopic.net in case the photos get too steamy for the forum.

    Seriously, congrats on that - may I ask how you got the gig (taking notes)? Us photoforumer's support you 115%!
