Things that can go wrong include circuit breakers in homes or commercial properties blowing out in the middle of photographing or the weather not being conducive to a good sky. If the weather looks substandard and you sense post-production will be a nightmare for you to get the desired final product, then schedule a different time to come back and re-shoot. You will save yourself a lot of work on the back end by doing this. In the event that situations arise, it is not the end of the world. Just think of it as a minor a set back. A photo shoot gone South can be salvaged with a dawn shoot if time is an issue, and if the photographer has allowed extra days for the shoot from the beginning, a dawn shoot is not necessary. The only issue is returning to the site an additional time when the conditions are better.
The great thing about architecture is it doesn’t move and it doesn’t have an attitude. For more information or if you have any questions, please send me an email or call: [email protected] or call (714) 276-7978.
