- what do you want people to think about your business when they see these images?
- how will they appear (a grid, a map, filmstrip style, against white, with type at the bottom)
- what do you like/dislike about your current images?
- who is coming to this website? Who are you trying to attract?
- what's your timeline, your budget?
- what kind of access will I have to the people I'm shooting? How long?
I'm laughing, because this list makes me sound much better prepared than I was. Really, I didn't ask all the right questions. At all. But, that's ok, because today we were just testing. Trying some ideas to see what worked. I find I'm pushing myself to be perfect and of course, that won't happen.
Also, don't forget to say things like, "let me think about that and get back to you."
It was fun, exciting, nervewracking. I feel like such a rube, but I am further ahead than I was last summer, that's for sure.
Um, this background idea is so distracting. I thought it would look like his work, but it just makes you look at the pictures. (they are my kids and even me. this used to be my husband's office).
I am trying to go easier on myself.
I think I do best when I'm just prowling around documenting things rather than setting them up and posing people. These last two are my favs, me thinks.
p.s. I just love that Periodic Table of Typefaces poster on the wall here.
Whew. That was scary and thrilling, like all the best roller coasters. Except I couldn't scream.
