The day of the big shooting is approaching. There are so many other things we are planning to do with this client, and each one of them depends on how good (or bad) this first shooting will go. With the life changes I’m undergoing I can’t really miss this opportunity, and I’m very close to move from the “fruitful pressure” (the one that makes me work harder to get better) to the “panicking pressure” (the one that makes me unable to work at all and live in denial). My wife Claudia and our friend and colleague Julia are really helping a lot in keeping me on the safe side, but I can feel how this situation is stressing them too.
So tonight, after a whole day at work, after the evening play-time with Agata, after putting her asleep and after having a Tex-Mex dinner and a few glasses of wine, tonight we decided to try some more poses and light schemes. I was really tired, tipsy an bitchy, but I knew that a few good shots would have worked in sweetening my mood. We shot for around three hours, we tried at least four different poses and several light schemes, and by the end of the night I had at least three new options and a little more experience.
