If shooting in evening, you gotta watch out for yr flash and avoid harsh shadows. And maybe put in some interesting elements as the background, otherwise just 1 person shot would not be interesting. Also watch out for sweat, shining spots on faces.

thanks for the tip!!!
shooting will happen around 6pm in the outdoors. i'm planning to use flash only for fill purposes. thinking of using a warming gel to match the light at that time of day. not sure at this point how to pose. he's a singer songwriter and the brief stated that i should show his instrument (a guitar). should be a good learning experience!

Check the colour profile your client need. What I use is Adobe RGB for off set printing and sRGB if I'm sending it to lab for printing. You need to shoot in Adobe RGB colour profile as I think resetting from sRGB to Adobe RGB in photoshop will help, but not much. Can someone here please comment on this?
