Out here in California any grass that's not watered daily turns brown in the summer. Any green grass is going to feel damp. If clients are sitting or lying on it, do you put a concealed plastic sheet down so they don't get their clothes soiled? Same question for sitting on public steps.

Thanks!

I have them wear clothes that can take the environment. I carry a brush for public steps--if the steps are dry, a bit of brushing usually cleans them enough even for wedding gowns.

What a question! Here's an idea: If adult diapers can keep water in, they can also keep water out? :D

Or worse, shooting people when you are stoned.

Just go with the flow, man.

Edited for a thought: Do you think that maybe that's why the "green box" exists?

I wondered what that thing was for.....


Edit: I never even put my serious answer to the OP, so here it is: I always bring 2 or 3 small handtowels with me, they work great if someone needs to sit on a damp surface or a hard surface.

You really shouldn't shoot people no matter where they are....it tends to land you in jail.

Seriously now...if I were getting pics taken and would be sitting on wet grass, I would hope that the photog plans it so that part was at the very end of the session (at least with that particular outfit).
