Holiday Shoot

I had a photo shoot at a local spot here in Woodstock. It was fun and I enjoyed myself in 34 degrees. I could see the people I worked with were cold and perhaps they even lost their patience but they were troopers every one of them. I went to the shoot with some ideas in mind but I first let the client do what he wanted to do. At the end I had the photos on the laptop and I was showing the client his group shots.

That might have been a mistake. But I learned from it. I will have to be more careful about showing off work before it is done. The problem is I get excited about what I do and I love working with art. It’s exciting to me because there is so much more that can be done with art than could be done 20 years ago. I remember what I was doing with a computer 20 years ago. It was an Apple IIc. I can remember putting the floppy disks in the drive and thinking, “computers are so damn cool!”

Here’s a shot that might bring back memories for all you peoples out there not reading this blog = ]

Back to the photography. I’m happy to report that I was able to edit everything and have it back to the customer in 2 days. It was on a customized/printed disk with matching sleeve for the CD case. I had a lot of fun photoshopping one of the employees and a corporate icon together. It gave me flash backs of working with Disney! This week I might meet back up with the customer to take photos at a high school at a basketball game. Round and round I go.

Maybe if I’m motivated I will post some of them on my FLICKR site sometime this week…
