Having a concept in my head, I decided to bring a thought to reality. Thus The Cast was born. In planning this I knew that to achieve a final composition one of two paths would have to be chosen. I could position myself and hope that the caster would hit my focal plane during his cast and I would have the proper focus and depth of field at the exact moment to capture the image. This option left a lot to chance. Knowing exactly what I was looking for, I choose the best method to achieve the composition. First I assembled a crew, ( My Family). Which I will add performed better than a group of set managers. My kids know how important photography is to me and they performed at such a high level during this shoot I was proud that once explained to them, they carried out the tasks with little to no instruction. This is one of the big deals during a photo shoot and I am extremely proud of my children and how well they performed.
In a quick summary and with time being a factor, as always, I want to apologize for my lack of posts as of late. Here is the reason and I hope it is a good enough excuse to get me off the hook…. PUN INTENDED!
And for your viewing enjoyment. The making of this Photo.
