Sometimes I am asked to shoot something that sounds quite simple, but ends up being ridiculously hard to get right. I love those jobs, even if they invariably take 5 times as long as I had reckoned for, because when you finally hit it right it’s like that first glass of red wine in the evening. Bloody satisfying.
This week I was asked if I would shoot some guitars. Yes is pretty much the only answer to a question involving work. How hard could it be … I think photographing them for the first time must be the same as when you try and play them for the first time. It looks like it should be effortless, but it’s like trying to knit yoghurt.
Eventually I found my guitar shooting mojo. Aaaand relax.
