Many of us had to negoiate snow and icy highways Saturday morning to arrive at the Green Room Studio on time. JT, Corey and the models made the first day productive. Even if the models had to endure some cold temperatures for the available light outdoor shooting.

Karin shot using the JT classic door scrim and reflector highlight technique.


JT and companying working at Seattle Supershoots.


I am sure others will be posting some great images. And, we have another day of shooting left.

Laces out ... elbows in?

Your headshot is great, but ... the second image raises a question for me: I've always been of the belief (maybe from one of my college photography classes) that the best way to hold a camera steady is to always hold your camera with your elbows snugly against your body - whether your shooting horizontal OR vertical shots. Did I get some bad information or does it even matter?

Image of Michelle below was shot with elbows in.

Nice shot,
I don't really think it matters, but when I hold my camera in portrait position my elbows naturally fly out. Just hold the camer steady or use the a tri-pod.

Taken elbows out.

Marty:

I would guess it is a matter of personal preference. I tend to shot the vertical elbows in, but that is because I position the trigger down, rather than up, as the photographers above who now need to reach up and over the camera.

Awesome day today at Seattle Supershoots. Many fabulous images made by everyone. Kudos to the MUAs Dawn Tunnell, Susanne Crawford, and Karen Cleveland. Michael Hall and Michele Knight created some great styles.

Another of Karin, this from today.

I keep my camera steady by holding it with both hands.

::snicker::

Seriously...When I shoot vertical (release up because I'm right-eyed and shoot with both eyes open) my arm kind of flies around all over the place, but my wrist rests against the side of my forehead, keeping the camera A) steady and B) pointed where I'm looking/looking where the camera's pointing.

I can't tolerate shooting release down, so I'd say that it's all personal preference, whatever works for you is the right way.
