A quote from one model during a shoot. "Oh you don't need that studio light for this, just use your pop up flash on the camera."
Oh no! I had a terrible thought. Some camera manufacturer is going to come up with a digital camera with a self timer that can be set for 30 seconds, and then reset to take another shot every 15 to 30 seconds.
Then all a model will have to do is stand in one place and change her pose every few seconds.
No need for a photographer any more, and that would eliminate those silly flash shots in the mirror or the ones where they are holding the camera at arms length, sticking their tongue out, and crossing their eyes. Well, at least they would not be holding the camera at arms length.
Or... is this timer already available?
I agree (didn't read the article), but why let a model take charge of the shoot? Most of them don't know a good image when they see it, which is evident by some of the images they put on profiles (see descriptions above).
