Models

If you want practice working with people, modeling sites have many beginning models who will pose in exchange for copies of the images. Just be careful. Not all models are reliable (nor are all photographers for that matter.) And make sure you have an extra person to act as your assistant, which will also give you an extra voice if something goes wrong during the shoot. Also, act honorably - don't touch a model without express permission, and that is only to readjust hair. Let a female stylist rearrange clothing and such. This is just CYA (Cover Your A**) principles.

  1. I’m still learning from you, but I’m trying to achieve my goals. I certainly enjoy reading all that is posted on your blog.Keep the information coming. I loved it!

  2. I am trying to learn how to photograph my jewellery properly and can never seem to get the exposure right. I have an Olympus X-42 Digital camera and there doesn’t seem to be anywhere on the net I can get any specific advice. I have to get my sister to take all my pictures for me.

  3. Great list ! I also wrote a post about free online photography courses, there are some resources you can add to your list ! Please check it here.
