Helene's Thoughts on Photography are as follows:
-all the technical aspects do not matter if the relationship isnt there, the body needs to communicate the personality
-you need to know what you see
-expression-This is the most important
-4 main types of lighting- Loop, Rembrandt, Split, Paramount/Butterfly
-Make sure that the lighting you choose works for the face of your subject
-Never talk about photography with your client, get them talking about things they are comfortable with. THe best thing they can say is that it was a good experience for them.
-Analyze your subject before you shoot them. Never shoot cold turkey-Meet beforehand to figure out how to capture them.
-Make the person look good and feel comfortable.
