Jokes aside, shooting a background plate without the model and then bringing in the model is a good idea if you need it. You will need to use a tripod though so you dont move the camera between the shots.
:oP Tripod goes without saying. Personally, I don't shoot handheld unless I don't have a choice, or unless I need efficient flexibility (like at a wedding). That was one of the things that always stuck with me from photography school. Always use a tripod if you can (I even carry a bean bag for situations where there isn't room for a tripod or monopod).
Now ... if it's too
cold, the turkey will be done a little too soon. hehehe
