Tip :
When you want to make sure your model is in the hotspot of a strobe with a grid, ask her (or him) if she can see through the grid and see the modeling light (or reflector) if so, the model is in the hotspot.

Also coach your model to keep that area in mind during the posing.

This tip makes sure you get more keepers, but it also saves you a lot of trouble on location with battery power, you don't have to keep metering to get it right.

Story

lifestyle and action photographer. artist. business owner. student of life. NAPP member! cheerleading coach. mom. wife. BUSY. Loving every minute of it!
Introduction
I'm a mom, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. I have traveled the world and am grateful for that opportunity thanks to the US Government and my Dad taking us overseas.  I feel passionately about my family and friendships. I enjoy scrapbooking and photography and have been a business owner for a year now. It's still start-up and I'm learning a ton and I love it! I'm also a volunteer cheerleading coach for our local Pop Warner association. In my past life, I was in Human Resources. Loved that job because I love meeting people and I think this is what makes me most successful in my photography endeavors.
