My lovely daughter-in-law said she is looking for a photographer to shoot 170 head and shoulder shots of teachers for a year book. It needs to be done in one seven hour day and they cannot afford to pay anyone. I wished her luck but I was secretly glad we live 1,500 miles apart so I did not have to turn her down.

Perhaps she has an idea to use digiCamControl, put a setup (background, lighting, chair - aka PhotBooth), hand over wireless mouse saying 'just click when you are happy with your selfie in the monitor'......

At least that what photographers in local schools do today (ok, they press the mouse button) and they finish 1000 kids in a day (group and individual H&S shots)...

Can be done, even on the budget... And if was one of the teachers in the same school, that could be a fun day too - one official year book, and then the 'bloopers' one.
