    :laugh:

    It is on BBC2.
    If you have never seen Trade Secrets they are quite good, and are interesting, even if not covering a subject you are not really interested in. The rattle facts off, about every 20-30 second so there will be plenty in the 10 minutes.

    No it was to catch the attention of a group of people and make them smile.

    A lot referd to full size and film cameras.

    Anyway here is the ones I remember:

    When taking family shots take two in quick succession as after the first one they become relaxed.

    When shooting women on chairs get their legs sideways on or put two telephone books under the cushion to raise their seating position.
    Use Duraglit on pictures that have had ballpoints wrote on them to remove the ink.

    Shoot portraits under foliage to reduce harshness and frame the picture.

    Take a picture of you address when sending photos to be developed in case they get lost and they will know who they belong to.

    Put some sticky tape on a child hand when taking their portrait to get thoughtful poses.

    I have used this technique years ago at a wedding and took pictures after the professional photographer took his. I showed them to the brides parents and they ordered a set of me as they though they were better because they looked more natural.
