13 April 2010 Improvised shoot

I’ve come to realize that the mass majority of people , don’t really understand what photography is. For most people photography can be broken down into one simple question “How do I look?”. Only a select few perceive photography as art, and surprise! most of the work in either planning or production of some artistic product …

The only question that pops right away into my mind is : How do i combat that ? … How do i reach the person that does not see what i see ? … How do i make him understand ? CONTRAST and ORIGINALITY is the key. Unfortunately i have not achieved either of these goals in this photo shoot. I thought that by going blind in a room with a girl i would somehow  be able to conjure magic on the fly. I was wrong. Note to self : Have at least a couple of ideas and a battle plan (schedule) before walking in the the dragon’s den. (also charged batteries might help)

Very happy with my model , and with the quality of the shots. Not happy with the direction of the shoot.

Will redo …
