    Nice shots, Frank!
    The metallic sheen makes it hard to get it right.

    Great shots Frank.

    But couldn't he have cleaned up his bill for the second shot. After all, he sure seemed to want to model for you. ...

    Hey Don, maybe he could be your next model. Sure seems to like to pose. He probably works cheap too.

    Angry Arm-twisting ...

    Look,

    I am quite literally being forced to make use of model(s) in my shoots.

    No human model = no credit.

    Pretty simple equation being used here.

    Unfortunately, the duck is an ani-mule and as such ... not really considered a direct-able model, but no less a cool-looking subject.

    While I am not all that enthusiastic about the "instruction" I am getting, I understand the precepts of the shoots and can accomplish it with some discipline and an active survey/request of available resources, The Location Photography class is, perhaps, the most "active" class in the entire curriculum. We are out of the building almost 50-60% of the time. What does that mean to the student photographer? Yeah, transportation costs. They didn't mention that in the fee schedule. Gas is a lot more expensive than ten years ago.

    Anyway ... here's to hoping I can get some sharp-looking models for my next three shoots. They are coming up really fast. Cripes, I need a casting director.
