Even if I was the guy who caught a magazine quality fish I'd pass off my rod to one of the models and let them land it for the photo. I was best at taking the photo and they were best at modeling the fish.
I've shot plenty of people the last few decades and it is really fascinating how each individual behaves when in the spotlight so to speak. I have seen a few people just light up and get animated, plenty of deer in the headlights, thinking what do I do and everything in between.
Just as interesting when you back home and see what works and why. Always some surprises!
