    2)20 minutes each group according to zaren.
    seriously, newbies like me, 20 minutes can take how many shots ah?
    when i shot my friends, it took me so long to get to the correct pose.not to mention looking out for the elements like messy hair, chopped off thumb and such.
    maybe you guys are damn experienced.
    but coming from a newbie POV,20 mins for me, i confirm stressed.
    is 20mins seriously enough to shoot 1 outfit?
    shouldnt the organiser limit change of outfits?
    i reckon 2 outfits shall do the trick.
    Professional model will leave on the dot. Over time is damn expansive. However, with all these casual shoots, my expereince is it depends. The more expereince, hence expansive, models, the more likely they will want to stick with industry standard practice. 4 hours means 240 minutes, not 241.

    20 minutes, plenty of time of one outfit. If I have the luxury to plan ahead, and I have exactly the light set up I want, assumeing we are shooting in a studio, 20 minutes, 1 outfits, 4 to 5 different poses.

    Key is plan ahead!

    its only through this thread then i realised how forgiving my good friends are.they let me shoot them one whole day, not a word of complain.

    then again, i treat them well too.

    I think you can find more willing models among the CSers.

    I saw him walking around Orchard Road with a car show model on each of his arms.

    I remember when I organized my 1st shoot (long time ago), we would fix the shooting crew first, fixed date and time for the shoot, then we arranged to meet up beforehand to discuss the theme, chose the model, etc etc, and collected money as well, then on the actual shoot day there would be no misunderstanding or surprise whatever.
    (Wow how time flies...)

    I have to agree that it is way much better organised by some of the shoots that are going on these days.

    After all, weren't you the one that introduced model shoots in CS that most likely resulted in many people being interested in photography and model shoots?

    Not that it is a bad thing and all.

    That is what I did at home a few years ago. However, mass shoot has reached the shores of the US as well.

    Btw, you haven't organised any shoot for a long time? Retired? Hopefully only from organising, not from photogrpahy

    this thread is really good!
    now we = the ppl who pose for the cameras, will know the expectations of photographers during a paid shoot.

    but i do think it's impt for the photographers to communicate the kind of outcome he/she wish to have so that the models can work towards it. the pose.. the emotions..

    oh.. and it's always nice to hear the word 'please'

    I mainly shoot under natural lights, including models. The lightings are arranged by God.

    I have no problem claiming those to be my work.

    Photography evolves when people wished to capture important moments when it happens.
    If some of you prefer to create an image by making things happened, its your choice. I know it happened everyday.
    But saying that you don't own the image unless you intentionally cook it up, is way over the top in my humble opinion.

    Hi all,

    As you may well realise I don't live there, I simply enjoy what you all have to share.

    Have a few friends now there due to CS.

    I pose a question. "One similar to what student is organizing in one way or another".

    When is all said and done about what one would do as per "The thread from DP",

    I would imagine that there are many that know girls/boys that would like to model.

    There are also many that would like to learn taking photo's of models.

    Why not try to get together "Create a thread" where you can get together.

    Form a group. Start from scratch. Post your results and take the slams.

    It doesn't always have to centre around money. Simply like minded people with a desire to learn.

    Along the way, "probably day one" you will learn about the logistics (al la, number of photog's vs time).

    Just a thought

    P.S. I have a belief that there are those out there that can make it happen.

    Take a look at the IR community it was and still is due to like minded people sharing an interest.... all learning and sharing/no charge.

    Cheers
    Time, is an effortless construction :)
