wow this is excellent work. Recently getting nervous about getting an e-session coming Friday, at least I can use some of your ideas. Need to plan out my equipment and settings well ahead, because last time i was taking shots of my 3 year old son playing soccer, and I would spend over 40 secs changing lens or mucking with settings, I got nervous and my son got bored too! Imagine that was a client eh?

Great thread! Bookmarked!

I was lucky to shoot close friends for my first e-session and had a lot more confidence than I think I otherwise would have for my 2nd one, which was about two weeks ago. There is a lot of good information in this thread.
