This past weekend I picked up a last minute portrait session - completely unplanned! Now my personality is such that I love to wing things but in recent years I have had to become a planner. I walk into every shoot with an idea of what I want. I know what kind of backgrounds will be there, where the light will be, if it will rain or be sunny, how long it will take, how many shots I will get and what I HAVE to walk away with.
This weekend I picked a spot I had never shot before and I trusted myself to make pictures. It was awesome! I somehow flourish in making images on the fly, not over thinking and just doing makes me feel way more creative than if I plan everything in advance. I will have to remember to do it again soon!
