Simply Time to DIY by Ross Oscar Knight: Episode #1

I had a delightful meeting this morning with Nirjary and Reshma of KIS (cubed) Events. We are planning a spectacular daylong shoot about 30 miles outside of Atlanta. When I am working on shoot ideas I always like to make a sketch of some sort. For the record, I can't draw. Instead of just receiving a storyboard from the production staff, I like to visit the location for a lighting check and then draw out a few of my own ideas. Next up is to translate the ideas to photographs. Of course different ideas pop into my head the moment I start shooting but the afore mentioned process helps me to be prepared for the unimaginable. Its quite different photographing a staged shoot with a creative director vs. capturing the raw emotion of a wedding day. Fashion photography is not my forte but I enjoy expanding my skills with shoots like this.

When props or camera accessories are just too expensive, I'm all about the DIY method. Yvonne and I are already busy building what we need for the six sets. In a post next week, hopefully I will show you the result of our project(s).
