Note worthy idea
I am not too proud to take help on assignment. Sometimes the subject being photographed has a better idea than I could dream up.
I was shooting an Our Town Spotlight assignment of a local violin player who performs with the Stockton Symphony. I had the usual portrait ideas but she suggested I incorporate the design in the marble floor of the foyer.
I had her play while selected a high shooting position on the staircase. I prefocused the camera and leaned over to get a nice shot of the spiral pattern in the floor framing her and the violin.
She had a great idea, making for a very artistic shot that has a good rhythm to it. I think it suits the music theme well.
