    Dogs and fidgety kids can always be stuffed in a freezer half an hour in advance of the shoot, just like butterflies. Besides, reflections of ice are always nice in black and white prints.

    (My kids would think that was fun.)
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    For infants you can fill their bottle with Benadryl.

    Benedryl is good for dogs, too. The freezer works best for cats.

    Yes, but don't try to warm the cat up in the microwave after the photo session.

    I did that once. Food warmed in the microwave always had a funny taste after that!

    With the price of Sinar equipment being so low these days- I think a F2 is an excellent choice for portraits. The Bino Reflex housing is very cheap now, and coupled with a Sinar fresnel- very effective.

    For portraits, I would consider getting the Sinar auto shutter. If set up properly it is extremely quick to use- the shutter automatically closes when a film holder is inserted, and opens again when a film holder is removed. It also allows you to control the shutter and aperture from behind the camera- another major plus.

    Being that they are now a fraction of what they cost ten years ago- its now a viable option for the non professional or independently wealthy. DB mounted modern lenses are also probably one of the biggest lf bargains out there as well these days.

    Using the auto shutter also allows you to use barrel mounted lenses easily- a major plus.
