When I do photography I like keeping things simple and come up with the concept first - the type of photos, the location and the model. Later, I do some research and get acquainted with the place and the model before shooting. I want to know for sure that she'd be comfortable with all the details and we can just go ahead and take some nice photos.
I do not like bringing all my "tools" when shooting out in the open so I travel light and bring only what's needed. I pick the light (time of the day) in a way so that I won't need too many flashes (if any at all) and grab one or two reflectors to get the natural skin tone (white balance with natural/available light).
|Shoot different styles, poses and at various locations|
that match a certain mood. Use backgrounds that
separate the model from the background.
