Day 345


Starting to miss the whole 365 project and realized I still have 20 days to go to finish. The last 40 seem to be the hardest for me.
This was taken after a very, very long day of shooting, taken with my iPhone 4 and the weird pattern we are seeing was caused by the sun shining through a plastic door logo and then refracting on the glass of the camera lens.

We began shooting around 10am and finished around 5pm. While that may not seem like a big deal, it was for me because I was in front of the camera talking for all but an hour or so of it. I think the Business Photography Crash Course is going to an amazing DVD set. Been working on it for 2 years and we are still 6-8 weeks from finishing.

It was such a GOOD day production wise and I think my favorite part was there were so many problems (potentially deal breakers) that popped up, and one by one we just solved them and moved forward. I LOVE that feeling of just dealing with my own problems and not waiting for an excuse not to take action.

I wake up this morning and there is a giant pimple on my forehead. Not a great scenario for shooting so many lessons. No problem, go to the store, buy some make-up, put it on. To a woman, this is not a big deal, to a man...its not normal to think like that. First time I ever purchased and used make up on myself.

We start setting up the main light, and upon opening, the bulb shatters. No problem, I just so happened to have a spare in my backpack that I brought along "just in case".

Wireless Microphones start acting buggy. No problem, we come up with a quick fix and solution.

We have another issue during transfer of the files from the CF card to Adam's external drive, no problem, find a work yet another work around and make the transfer.

We didn't panic, complain, or freak out and it just feels awesome to look at the situation and solve it instead of blaming someone or putting it off another day.
