Tethering/Instant feedback.. distracting??
Question is, do you think it will distract the model to see themselves and their pose instantly, or be helpful in letting them self adjust with the instant feedback? Anybody have any experiences?
Then after you are done, you can show it to them on the larger TV, as long as its HD, but will the colors and clarity be the same? I don't know.
I found it a useful tool when trying to communicate with the model what aspects of the photograph I was trying to change.
If you are going to do it I would suggest a nice long cable, I picked up 15 foot cable on Amazon and found it a bit short for what I was doing, if I was going to buy another one I would probably get the 30 foot version.
For lighting i find the back of the camera is fine but when it comes to posing sometimes something looks great on the back of the camera, then you blow it up and derp...
I was thinking often the model will run up and look at themselves in the camera and if they could just see themselves instantly up on the wall, they could get more creative with less direction. I'm being lazy
Also, from time to time I work for insurance agents where I run my backup T3 up a 20 foot pole to take outdoor photos of homes. With a longer cord I control my camera from below.
The hookup to the tripod is a simple bicycle smartphone mount that you can search for at Amazon.
Ah crap, it's canon camera only :C
