    Definitely a collaboration of model and photographer.

    Matt had an unfair advantage - talented photographer with an experienced, beautiful model.

    An experienced photographer can get a good shot of a bad model. Less success rate than experienced-experienced duo.

    An inexperienced photograph might get some great shots of an experienced model, too. Again, success rate drops.

    Photographer Steph was doing the inexperienced with inexperienced - the worst of all combinations. Yet, she did a fantastic job on framing, and trusting the auto exposure settings.

    Photographer vs Model was interesting! I agree, Matt, that it is a collaborative activity. Steph would look great if a chimp shot her and you would make a sea-hag look desirable! Steph needs help with composition while you could use a little more coaching on how to pose to make the shot look better.

    Hilarious! I vote for Steph; although, she definitely had a handicap with the model.

    Matt you did it again. I'm home from a long hard day and you lightened my load and gave me a good laugh. Thanks to both you and Steph. Loved every crazy minute.
