As Good As It Gets
I love it when a plan comes together. Sometimes, when you have an amazing group of individuals, working as a team, great things happen. When you have a beautiful model that knows how to move, a talented make-up artist that understands what you are going after and knows how to give it to you, and a cool stylist with great personal style and an amazing wardrobe, you can come up with some beautiful images. With digital, sometimes you lose the enjoyment out of the frenetic nature that contact sheets would display. I used to derive pleasure out of scanning the multiple images of a contact sheet searching for that one frame that embodied the entire shot. When a shoot goes well the edit becomes the most difficult part of post production because there are so many beautiful images to choose from. This most recent shoot is going to be a hard edit.
