May 4, 2007, Newsletter Issue #11: Props in Stock Photography

Tip of the Week

iStockphoto Tip: If you're shooting stock photography with models, remember that there are other props & poses besides listening to music on headphones, talkng on cell phones, typing on laptop computers, and playing electric guitars.

Whatever stock photography prop you do use (and props ARE good - they can turn yet another model portait into a useful concept), take care to ensure the model is holding it or using it correctly.
