Guess I’ve gotten too comfortable with my photography skills. Thinking nothing will go wrong is literally a foolish assumption in itself. Guess sometimes that lesson has to be learned the hard way.
After three months of planning, here we are working on photoshoot #2 of our circus themed photo series. It was a drastic difference from the success of our first shoot.
The main problem was lighting. Now that the time has changed, the sun sets way too late. Normally that wouldn’t be a problem, but since dinner is at a fixed time we had to schedule the phootoshoot three hours before sunset. The location was visited in advance. One look and it was obvious that there would be trouble.
Once everyone arrived, the models took turns in front of the camera. The lighting was too harsh. Those around where asked to stand on chairs and hold coats and things to block out the sun. It was an embarrassingly ghetto set up. The rest the time was spent struggling with all sorts of unimaginable complications. The final images may work out alright, but boy am I bummed out!
The images are yet to be edited.
