here goes.

i was tasked with shooting for a project. my project would require me to do up a magazine for IT guys and stuff.

however, the magazine is being targeted at PMEBs, white collared workers, etc.

and the main theme of the magazine would be regarding consumer trends about phones, so i was thinking of getting the model to hold the phone.

but i haven't really done shoots as such and would like to seek the advice from those who have been shooting portraiture. all help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance!

PS: i have been an event shooter for years and haven't really done portraiture

quite simple actually, find out what the phone does and simply adapt the scenario depending on phone function. eg, plug a LG phone out to a Line in speaker system. something like that.

choose whichever pictures.

Dun need studio. Get yer model to hold the phone, stand in grass patch outside raffles place mrt, shoot at 2 second interval, overlay a few pictures.

Another angle, get that silver coloured guy, (cos he hold really still), shoot at very long shutter speed. Against a backdrop of walking lunch white collar crowd, can stand out. Silver guy change pose every now and then, so pretty good to shoot for a while to get some really quirky pose.

Hope it helps.

Why not check out magazines like Stuff and T3. Their covers almost always are talents with gadgets and such.
