Sometimes, photoshoots go really smoothly, and sometimes, they do not go quite so smoothly. What was your most embarrassing mistake during a shoot?
Coming to you from Kayleigh June, this fun essay features her discussing some of her worst and most embarrassing photoshoot mistakes. By far, my worst and most embarrassing mistake was when I was first starting out. I thought way too highly of my abilities with a camera, and it bit me in the butt and forever humbled me. The night before I was due to shoot eight headshots, I went out with some friends and brought my camera. The next day, my camera was still set to ISO 3,200 from the night before, and I never bothered to check my settings. I was using the original Canon 7D at the time, a camera that lost quite a lot of detail above ISO 1,600 or so, and let's just say I did not have to do much retouching on all those headshots because there wasn't anything left to retouch. I learned two lessons that day: always check your settings before a shoot and a bit of humbleness goes a long way. Check out the video above for June's story.
