This is Angelo.
A frequent question from sitters is “What shall I do with my hands?” One solution is to give them something to hold. In this case it worked out well. Angelo skimmed the book, a treatise on economics of course, and read passages to me and a discussion was underway. I like to encourage and sometimes goad my sitters into giving me thoughts, rants or anything at all that get’s an emotional or thoughtful reaction. Of course the type of expression I’m looking for largely depends on who the shoot is for and the purpose of the pictures that come out of it.
