|What type of preparation do you do before undertaking the photo session?
I research the area, what types of flora, fauna, animals and birds are found there. Then I research the habits of the wildlife present, the seasons when the flowers bloom and what other interesting things are in the area. I try to review some images from the area to get an idea of what has already been shot in order to be able to look for more unique images.
It really depends on what I am shooting. For a product or still life, a lot more revisualization is necessary. For anything architectural or nature type photography I usually bring what I need and that is about it for "preparation".
I discuss the requirements with the client before the shoot, then prepare a list of shots the client wants, shots I would like and a few different shots that if I have time at the end of the shoot I can do. The list makes sure I tick all the boxes for the client and has some fun shots for me too.
It all depends on the shoot. I do try to help my clients prepare as much as possible so the shoot goes smoothly. Often I e-mail some prep-work that can be done to ensure a great shoot.
Listen to music. Tap into my internal energy.
i use my past to accomplish each job.
for fashion and people photo,The important thing is his or her background.
so I have to decide where he or she were. in street? in white backwall?papers?or his room? and his or her expressions,eyes and lights and compositions,framing.
Meeting with clients, location scout, digital camera checking and equipments meeting with assistants.
Make sure that my gear is in working order, discuss the shoot with the client/model and double check everything to ensure a successful outcome.
There are many types of sessions, outdoor or studio, each subject requires different preparation. It is important to be prepared when the subject suddenly and unexpectedly appears - a bird above or an interesting ground dwelling animal right in front of you. My wife also keeps an eye for wild flowers in the forest in case I happen to look the other way.
Before any photoshoot I make sure I have assembled the right crew the right talent and I test and research my concept thoroughly. Sometimes it's a fast process but usually it takes some time to assemble. To do it right you have to put the effort in first.
Reading, internet searches and even image searches.
As I told, I choose proper model, If project is complicated, I draw drafts, sometimes make test shooting to see what and how I will do. I'm looking for requisit or location. And sometimes I don't prepare shooting but just imagine what I want to do.
I put on whatever clothes is appropriate for the season, either sun protection gear or warm winter clothing. My photo sessions are usually at least three hours, maybe five, so I have to be prepared to battle the elements.
