I recently directed/produced a 1 minute commercial for the Women’s Heart Center at the Bakersfield Heart Hospital. I did this in conjunction with eMedia Marketing Solutions in Bakersfield, California.
Manuel Carrizalez is the founder of Stay Focused Ministries. Here he poses in front of a mural in his old neighborhood.
This photo is a perfect example of why you always need someone else looking at details when shooting photos. It is a great photo except for one major problem. The ball is upside down and because of that it makes this photo useless to me.
Sure, I could go into photoshop and try to fix it. But, I don’t want to waste my time doing that. This is where having a good team around you really makes a difference. On this day I was shooting by myself. I had no help. So, while I am trying to figure out F Stops and lighting ratios in my head, I missed that the ball was upside down. If I had some help that day, this all could have been avoided and this photo would have been something proud for me to share.
Instead, it is a reminder to me that you can’t do it all by yourself. You always need some help and you always need another set of eyes helping you see something that you can’t see. You can apply this to this photo or even to your life.
