A Little Brilliance

With a few photoshoots under my belt, happy clients and (mostly) happy photographer, I'm able to look at these sessions and happily see where my strengths are. Not so happily, that also reveals the weaknesses. In my research to help strengthen these areas, I've been reading quite a bit on The Strobist blog. If you are at all interested in photography, hobby or otherwise, this blog is a just a treasure trove of information and ideas.

One such idea I came across today is something I'd like to start making myself do on a weekly basis. While doing a shoot, snap a shot of behind the scenes. The overall set up, location, lighting, everything. After the shoot, use an example shot and the set up shot, and do a write up of how everything went, what did and didn't work, etc.

Seems like a rather brilliant plan to see what works and what doesn't, and to have record of it to refer back upon as needed!

As an artist, do you have a way to track what does and doesn't work, or do you prefer to fly by the seat of your pants with every project? Perhaps a bit of both?

  1. That really is a great idea. It would make it so much easier to pin point what works for you and what doesn't. SO SMART!!


Speak your mind, fiercely!
