Capturing the start of a day to complete the picture

Video: Capturing the start of a day to complete the picture

You've got the check out this kitchen. So I came out here this morning to photograph Kevin having his morning cup of coffee, maybe a little breakfast. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I did know that our narrative right now sort of takes place over a day. Even though we're shooting within 48 hours, visually, it's going to be starting out in the morning and ending at night. (SOUND). >> (INAUDIBLE).

Capturing the start of a day to complete the picture

You've got the check out this kitchen. So I came out here this morning to photograph Kevin having his morning cup of coffee, maybe a little breakfast. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I did know that our narrative right now sort of takes place over a day. Even though we're shooting within 48 hours, visually, it's going to be starting out in the morning and ending at night. (SOUND). >> (INAUDIBLE).

>> Nope. >> Nope? Let's check out this kitchen. (SOUND) (SOUND). The best thing about photography is, is that you get this invitation to come into people's lives and you never know what to expect.

And we have somebody really fascinating, intriguing, like Kevin. It's always a present that you're unwrapping and it's every layer something new. And I come here this morning, it's a little bit chilly even though we're in Ventura. And he's got all his buddies that are hanging out here on our city at 7 o'clock in the morning. And they're sitting around a campfire. I never could have made up this stuff. It's great, like real life is so awesome and it throws you a little bit of gems. so visually, you know, I could shoot low and through the fire and, then, dogs were coming up. And he's got these great characters, his friends. so it's a really great morning. It's a short shoot, only like 5, 10 minutes but we got the pictures we needed.
