In between the train trip through the east coast and the car trip up the west coast was a photo shoot with Kelsy, walked with her through my neighborhood as I do so much, as I am trying to do less but it is just so damned convenient.
It’s an environment I like, light I understand, an excellent frame in which to shoot folks.
And having interviewed dozens of couples, I’m a wee bit better at talking to folk during a shoot, so the walking and talking is something I’m terribly comfortable with.
When I got back I thought I’d focus on new environments, but it’s looking like it’ll be more of what I say to folks, not where I say it.
Because finding places to shoot: hard. Finding things to talk about during a shoot: that’s my thing!
I always expect changes to be huge, but it tends to be little things, little adjustments, tweaks, slight shifts in perspective. I expect improvement to be dramatic, but, like life, it tends towards more subtle, gradual movements.
