I'm going to ask the girl if she has anything in mind or if she saw a picture she loves. Not that I'm going to re-create it exactly but at least know the style she likes. I know one of my biggest downfalls is freezing up and totally blanking. I was thinking of doing a cheat sheet but didn't know if photographers actually did that or not haha. You're right, it's all about what works for each individual client but I at least want to try to get an idea of what they like and don't like.

I think that's fine. I always ask my clients if they have a particular vision or inspiration. Then, at the end of the session I ask if there was a particular pose they wanted that I hadn't covered. It's extremely rare for me that they say yes, but if they do, then I shoot whatever it is they have in mind (or a close proximity).

:? So I completely restored the computer that K tried to do a reset on and it fucked up. Well he turned on my old laptop before he left that Tyler had spilled cereal on and it miraculously worked. Well now he said that he gets the pretty much brand new computer I just restored and I get the old one that Tyler spilled cereal on. :? I'm not dealing with this Toshiba because of the horrible lag.

I don't know. I mean, he's on the road 5 days of the week and when he usesit he only uses it for potfarm.

I sent a text saying that I want the one that I just restored because that one that he has will probably crap out on me while i'm working on a clients pictures with my luck and he got mean. :(

It doesn't sound like he's taking what you're trying to do very seriously.

Your edges are a little on the soft side but for your experience level, that's actually not a bad job at all. Though it's a bit on the cool side :)

I mean, I can sorta understand because I've started a lot of stuff before and never went through with it. But this time is different.
He's pissed off right now because he's stuck in traffic so I just didn't respond so it wouldn't piss him off more.
