Mutual Respect

There is a rule in my studio.  It is called the Rule of Mutual Respect.  This is what it means…

The distinguishing feature between a good photographer and a mediocre photographer is the placement of the hands. The hands of the subject tell the whole story. If the hands aren’t right, it’s a bad portrait. Plain and simple.
