There is a certain joy in sitting down, planning for a shoot assignment. Days of research, looking through what have been done before, trying to imagine how I could do it, pushing my imagination, dreaming of ideas, brainstorming, trying to get inspiration from other mediums. Finally coming up with an awesome idea; client is happy, I'm happy. Preparing equipment, renting stuff, buying gear, calling in favours, getting all excited.
Shoot day. equipment runs out of battery, talents uncontactable. Client throws a hissy fit. Everything planned goes out of the window. Nothing works. Perfect image captured.
