    As far as I remebmer the photo shoot came out quite funny. I was almost done shooting when I realized that I have shot everything in .jpg and for some reason in the lowest quality. I had to make it all over again.

    Sometimes for my own risk I take photo sessions without precasting. This is like a lottery, and the best part is that I definitely didn't loose this time.
