I love the experiences that come with photography. Meeting people, traveling the country, creatively solving problems RIGHT NOW... it's an exciting and rewarding way to make a living.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I always try to bring a bit of my own personal style to a shoot while making sure the client is getting what they need as well. One technique comes to mind - I'm a light painter on the side, meaning I like to create long exposures and introduce my own lights into the scene. On multiple occasions, I'll know I have the shot, but we still have some time... that's when I start getting really creative. I've done some light painting/fractal abstraction on jobs and the client ends up ecstatic and curious to how it was even done, and ultimately use it as content. Adding these special touches when the opportunity arises is a joy.
