EikonPhoto. I’m not a big fan of inspirational messages, but this is one that holds a lot of truth. I grew up in a curious family (in more ways than one). If there was a way to fix something, we did. If we failed – we didn’t just curl up and hide under the covers. Keep trying. Sometimes there are situations in photography that these words apply. I’ve seen more than one inexperienced photographer fall apart. Sometimes it’s an equipment failure that leaves them in a pool of sweat. Sometimes it’s the subject. We’ve all worked with difficult people. It’s hard when it’s the art director, but much worse if it’s the person/animal/building or whatever. When it’s a difficult person in front of your camera my advice is to find a connection on a human personal level. Ask questions, you’ll eventually find something that they care about.
