Lady V: What is the most importantthing to remember to get a good image?

CL MitchellTo me getting a good image has nothing todo with the technical stuff of photography, it is more about making the subjectthat you are shooting feel comfortable in front of your lens. I think that that isthe key, if you don’t have that, no matter if your shooting with a 10 thousanddollar camera, your images will still come out less then par.

CL MitchellI am still tryingfind that out,.. I feel that having integrity, being punctual, and being agood person are key no matter what profession you are in. And having a good sense of humor also helps
