This post should really be titled, “Comedy of Errors”, because it was such a bad day. Thank goodness this client was a great sport. She needed corporate head shots – this type of session is usually pretty quick and painless….usually. The day started with me forgetting my studio keys (and not realizing until I was there). So I had to call my husband to bring them. Unfortunately, she arrived at this time and we got to know each other outside of the studio. Great first impression, right? LOL
She laughed and told me when a day starts like that, it is bound to continue, and I thought that surely my day would only get better, right? Wrong! My giant softbox fell off at one point, and then all of my lights started misfiring, and the rim light started firing in super speed – all without me even holding my camera. So what else could go wrong? Well, then the lights don’t work at ALL. Turns out it is my transmitter’s battery. I take it out, put it back in, and it lasts long enough for this session. But still – this was seriously a bizarre morning. LOL
But at least we got some very nice corporate head shots for this big wig.
