Wether it is gear failure bad weather or clients who cancel last minute photographers deal with a ton of unexpected circumstances. So what do you do when life presents an unfair mix of negativity? What every other success person in the world does. Persevere.
Now, im no protographer, (yes i did spell it like that on purpose) I dont depend on my photographs to pay my mortgage or feed my family but I do take it quite seriously. So when this week presented one of the wettest weeks on record in the canadian prairies I got pretty down. Drab grey clouds dont produce the kind of prairie skies that make an open panorama engaging and uplifting. I thought of all the ways I could make it work but travelling is not recommended due to flooding and the fields would be nearly impossible to traverse in order to get the shot. Please dont hear me say a good shot isn’t worth it and likely if I was making a living of this I would have been out 2 or 3 times trying to get a good picture.
All that to say my June image is not going according to plan so I have decided to adapt. To be flexible to try and attain what I think is a crazy goal.
Plan setup shoot post process and publish an image in 9 hours the whole time capturing and posting the process all while balancing thr demands on 3 kids.
I make no promises but I think this is going to be fun…
