Testing? in photography..?

What does it mean when people say they are doing test shoots in photography?

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker: I assume you are referring to modeling.

If so that means the photographer wants to see how you are in front of a camera and if you can be a model. Not everybody that wants to model can be a model. You can say yes but also ask for a TFP or TFCD (Time For Prints or Time For CD) in other words if you supply your time to the photographer he has to give you something in return. So ask him for a Copy of all images for Free. Also do a model release so you can use them (print or website) as for the photographer also.

Hope that answers your question,
