If this is a TF/Trade shoot. Both parties should get what they want(do you agree?). You do it the model's way...and you do it your way.... because it's a trade. You want to leave the TF shoot with usable pictures for you and the model's portfolio.
When I use to do trade a few years back, I always have certain look and poses in my head or a bunch of pictures in my phone and show it to the model to do it. A moodboard as you might call it. It makes easier communication with the model.... just a tip.
Im well aware yes. This was literraly a spur of the moment thing. She was leaving for paris the next day and i thought, I have free time, why not.
Sometimes shooting just for the fun of it is more important than not shooting at all
I have no professional aspirations in terms of photography btw. its really just a hobby
