Who's job is it to watch out for it? The photographer, who should be watching everything in his viewfinder, or the model, who should know not to put it there?

Everyone's ... but as the captain of the ship it becomes the photographer's responsibility. Btw, this one of the few times I think photoshop is a wonderful thing.

The stylist?

Who the hell put it there? LOL It shouldn't be there in the first place. If a model makes it a habit one is almost guaranteed to sneak into a photo sooner or later.

But ultimately, if the photographer misses it he/she should bear the responsibility of retouching it out.

So easy, the photog.

In my last few txts with a model before our shoot I repeat that request, nothing tight — around your wrists, bras, panties, etc.

Guess you learned too!

It should be the models responsibility. However people forget and when that happens the photographer needs to be aware and say something.

Sometimes I forget to take off my rings because I wear them all the time. It would then be the photographers job to remind me to take them off.

Dude  ... I don't even trip anymore  ... if the model leaves it on, I just edit it out in post, if I like the shot.  Problem solved wink

Oh My! When I saw the title I thought: "Oh My god are they talking about one of my photos from September?!"

Neither I or the model I was also with or my photographer knew it was there, honest!!!

But we all had a good time regardless. smile

I don't wear a hair tie ... and I'm not a teeny bopper with a problem with the identity ... adults, ADULTS shouldn't even have one on their wrist ... unless we're driving on the freeway ... then and only then ... well maybe I have one on my side of the bed on the nightstand ... and in the glove box ... and in my "go bag" ...

Whose.

And um... I think it should be a group effort.

This

Though I would have to say if one makes it through too many frames without noticing the model has a hair tie on her wrist that the photographer is lacking a fine eye for detail  -- which is kind of important if one wants to be an effective photographer.

Ultimately I think it should be the model's since it is her hair tie, but it is always good to have multiple eyes watching out smile

I almost made that same mistake today... had just taken my hair down for another part of the shoot and moved back into the frame. I noticed immediately before the camera went off to begin the next set that I had put the band on my wrist.

The model should be aware of it, but I'd hope the photographer would notice it's there after a bit too.

I have worked in the commercial side for 25+ years. Every detail, every element is in the end the photographers fault. Even when it wasn't or if it was the client that suggested something that was followed you are responsible for your pictures.

Is it the fault of a model for leaving something? Yes but you cannot click the shutter without watching.

This used to be a major problem with me. I have super long hair, which I keep braided back most days. Almost always carry an extra one on my wrist, cuz having one snap leaves my hair all wild and uncontrollable and getting into everything. But I still love it too much to chop it off. Having one around my wrist is normal... But nothing is more irksome than getting halfway through a shoot, only to realize that a tie has been lurking on my wrist the entire time.

Luckily, I catch it in time now, but I always appreciate it when the photographer keeps an eye out as well. Two sets of eyes are better than one!

It is a simple thing to tell the model when you're planning the shoot that you hate ponytails because they crimp the hair which is not the look you're going for and she should leave all hair ties at home and if she needs something to hold her hair back for makeup etc, she can use the biggest, ugliest clip she has and I guarantee no one will miss that!

Or you can just tell the escort that if he misses it, he has to sit there nekkid for the entire shoot! tongue

both model and photographer should keep an eye out for stuff like that, but really the model should know to take it off. just like taking off their wedding ring, which i also think distracts from the main purpose of most shoots. i keep hairties in a little pouch in my bag for shoots since the band makes a heinous red mark around my wrist.

I agree with the wedding ring comment. Nothing irritates me more than taking a girl on a date who forgot to take her wedding ring off.

Just do a concept with hair ties all over the model.

Could make a bondage shoot with that.

As a model there is no "accidental" way that it is going to end up on my wrist. It is unfair to the photographer to slip it on there and then forget about it.

Have I done this? Yes, and then caught myself after a shot was taken! Darn.

BOTH! Also, tags in clothes, fly away hairs, shiny skin, etc.. It's a rookie mistake and a mistake I've made MANY times, only to get the pics back to be very disappointed in myself.. BUT.. you photographers are our mirrors. You see us thru the lens, you pose us, tell us where to stand, etc.. so it is also part of your job to look for these type of things. It's a group effort to get the best images!

My very first photoshoot I kept a hair tie on my wrist, not really thinking anything of it.
It wasn't until someone commented on my picture on MM that I even considered that it shouldn't be there. The photographer didn't mention it to me at all.
The said picture is no longer in my port, and I've been careful to not wear one while shooting now.

put one on each wrist and just claim it is your "personal style"

Thought I finally got good at spotting that damn thing but today was putting my name on some magazine shoot photos I did back in Oct because I know their going to be using them soon so will finally be able to share them and yup, there it was. UGH! Hope the mag caught that and fixed it but I doubt it.
