Shooting for editorial purposes can be challenging at times. If you’re an avid reader, you’ll remember me discussing shooting Christmas Ornaments in September when its 90 degrees outside. Well this latest shoot was no different. Preparing for a spring issue, we worked with flowers, plants and flower boxes. Luckily the weather was cooperating so it was around 50 degrees or so, but the available light with the suns lower orientation just said winter. Hats off to my two assistants for holding reflectors most of the day and also for successfully deciphering my cryptic directions. On a side note, I’d love to see a scientific study on why my ability to speak logically disappears when I’m photographing. I’m sure it has something to do with the artistic (left) side of the brain being used more then the right side… but I digress.
Here’s a few photos from the shoot:
