Over the course of about an hour the two professional photographers took turns to discuss and demonstrate posing, lighting, and accessorizing a story. Each topic was further embellished with a live shoot of their lovely assistant, Taylor. As soon as they shot her demonstrating a specific, the image was immediately projected on the large screen.
