In the comments section of my last update, photographer Ed Verosky suggested some ideas for PGS updates. (Thanks again, Ed! I've said it before: For me, the writing part is easy, what to write about is, more often, the hard part.)

One of Ed's most-excellent ideas for updates suggested interviews (Q&As) with models regarding being photographed, i.e., what's going on in their heads during the process... which could be fairly scary, in terms of finding that out or, perhaps, non too ego-enhancing for many photographers. Regardless, Ed also thought it might be interesting to ask what models might tell photographers if they were directing them. READ MORE?

Sometimes I let them lead. Sure, why not -- I can be lazy in that area, focus more on the shooting techniques itself.

Letting models take charge of a photo shoot has often resulted in the worse images that I've produced.

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).

Umm, yup...at least for the DSLRs but if the camera you are thinking about is what I think you are thinking about (the ubiquitous P'n'S or Cell Phone) then the answer is no. But I wouldn't put it past a manufacturer to come up with this.

But let's not muse on this too much...they may hear us! Shhhhhhh!

Some of the point and shoot camera's have timers on them, but it's a one shot deal and then the user has to push the shutter button again. This would also require something that many do-it-yourself myspace girls aren't familiar with. A tripod.

I think some of you are slightly missing the point. I didn't intend anyone to think I let model's take full charge of my shoots. I don't. But models often have more to contribute than looking pretty. You know, like ideas.

I welcome ideas from models when it comes to what outfits they should wear, locations to shoot at and how to pose, but not what equipment should be used or how to use it.
I certainly wouldn't think you would allow models to just step in and take total control.
