Another moody & cold day for shooting outdoors. This was my first of three shoots I did yesterday.

 

My model was freezing so we huddled in a back alley which was slightly warmer than the wind tunnel where we first started shooting. Sounds so glamorous, doesn't it?

 

I was almost ready to give up on the shoot because there was no light. My model was freezing so we huddled in a back alley which was slightly warmer than the wind tunnel where we first started shooting. Nothing more glamorous than shooting in a back alley :/

 

I was almost ready to give up on the shoot at this point because there was no light and we were both shaking from the cold. Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a car coming slowly towards us. I asked Taravat give me a lost/mysterious expression and I snapped this. It was the last shot of the photo shoot.

 

Everytime I stick with a shoot to the bitter end, I always get an unexpected shot that I hadn't planned. Often the last shots I shoot are the best.

 

What I've learnt is that you never get a second chance to capture a spontaneous moment, so shoot furiously until your hands are numb and your legs are shaking. Trust me, it is worth it to have no regrets with your photography.
