Actually TFCD is quite like a model shoot except no $$$ exchange. You need to work with your friend on what both of you really wants. He, being a model, should more or less know what a model need to do (like getting Make Up Artist etc) before the shoot.

Simple...all you need is your cam (of cos), a good lens, preferably a portrait lens and a tele zoom lens. Also, an external flash and you may want to bring some reflectors (if any).

Other than these, also ask the model to bring some sets of clothing to suit different moods and a make-up artiste.

It depends. For example, you can go to places with reflective surface so that light can be bounce to the face.

Hiya Shuee,

TFCD.....well you got to bring lots of clothes.. ;)

Well, it all depends on the theme of the shoot. Glamour/pret a porter or portraits. Sexy shooting is possible but you must be at least 18.(at least for me)Younger than that, bring a parent.

Locale: Outdoors: Cheapest shoot by subject to sunlight and bad weather.

Studio: Costs a bit but more control over lighting and such. No hot sun and even a changing/makeup room.

Most of the photogs would gladly shoot you if you asked so jus drop a note that your'e interested and wait for the replies.

Cost? Depends on what kinda shoot you're looking at. But you must at least have a makeup artist to do justice to your shots. That said, I guess you can also do makeup by yourself if you think you're good enuf.

Okay enuf said.... drop me a note if you want to find out more.

Cheers!:D

I've never done one before as well, but I think you should think up of a theme(if any) and match
the clothes accordingly and have an picture in your head where you'll want to be shooting at, what the background will look like.

I think the time of day would also affect as you're using natural light.
alternatively, rent a flash?

My 2 cents. :)

Best to get external flash cos sometimes u will definitely need to fill-flash and the built-in one is just not enough.

actually built in flash cmi, cos the type of effect make it either very flat, or make it impossible to use.

I strongly agree with u. I've NEVER used my EOS 30's built-in flash, my 420EX comes to play all the time and gives very gd results coupled with omnibounce or bounce card.
