“I Need Some Guidance…”
This Looper is new to the wedding photography world and wants to ensure that she’s setting herself up for success. She’s communicating with a client who invited their family friend to act as a second shooter. The author of this post is conflicted on how they should approach the client’s decision to hire a professional while having their friend there to try and capture every moment. Do you have any advice for this Looper? Join the thread here to add to the conversation.

This photographer is on the hunt for a new tripod. Her requirements are that it needs to be lighter than her heavy manfrotto, easy to use, can bear the weight of a Canon 5DX, and could also function as a table-top for food photography. Plenty of PPA members have already chimed in to this thread to help this author make the best decision possible, but if you have any great tripods to recommend join the thread to let her know!

“Advice on Scheduling Shots of Athletes During A Tournament”

This Looper wants to improve their system for scheduling action shots of athletes during sporting events. Usually, they’ll have parents provide information about their athlete before their performance, and the photographer will wait for the parent’s reminder that their child is about to begin playing. However, this system isn’t perfect and often leads to disappointed parents who didn’t get action shots of their athletes. Do you have any advice for how this photographer can improve his workflow? Join the conversation today to let him know.

“Your Thoughts on Using Live View”
This photographer would love some advice on integrating her camera’s live view function into her photography routine. She’s using a DSLR Canon Mark 4 camera that has no swivel function and she doesn’t shoot video. She would really appreciate any advice or recommendations that you can give.
