    Hello All,

    i've been asked to shoot some promo shots for a band, which i've never done
    before but they like other stuff that i've done.

    my question to the photo gods out there is- what are key factors in shooting
    bands? which poses work the best, etc., etc.?
    fyi- these will be location shots not at a show.

    any input will be appreciated.

    If there's any girls in the band, show a lot of leg....

    This is highly dependent on the band. I would not do the same things
    with a rock band as a bluegrass band or a marching band or a worship

    I agree with the poster who said to get your money up front.

    Exactly. Another poster said if there are girls in the band "show lots
    of leg...." Ok for a rock band but can you imagine asking a pastor if
    you can take some pictures with "lots of leg" of his gospel choir :)
    Always.... And check the copyright etc

    No dude, some of the religious babes are real me on that
    one, I know.

    And if you read the paper, you know that half those so called pastors are
    men first....and like the women say, all men are hounds ;-)

    That doesn't mean they want their legs flashed all over everywhere.
    The only ones that make the paper are the exceptions. They make the
    paper partly because the behavior you elude to is fairly rare.

    To "elude" is to escape, avoid or duck-- often with trickery or in an
    under-handed manner. To "allude" is to make a reference to something, often
    in a somewhat disguised manner. Kinda hard to take the arguments of a guy
    who doesn't know the difference seriously;-)

    Believe what I tell you though-- a whole lot of choir babes are hot and a
    whole lot of "reverends" aren't.....
