Be prepared, my Boy Scout past tells me & be willing to change, my life as a photographer has taught me. Carry these two ideas with you and most ventures will be successful - including photo shoots. Before arriving at the Manifest Gallery to photograph a drawing workshop for Cincinnati Magazine I had all of the gear needed, the name of the contact person and an idea of what to capture on digital film. Once I arrived, some things changed - as they often do. The room was different than I had imagined (bigger), as was the light (better) and the number of people (more). I was able to use a tripod (as I hoped), no flash (as expected) and was there for an hour & 1/2. I shot 391 frames and uploaded 41 to the magazine. The three images below are different points of view but tell the same story. They are a result of being ready & being ready to change.
