Sorry..... yesterday I was too tired to blog....... hehehe....... sounds unlikely right? How hard can it be to shoot a few pictures?.........hehehehe.......

I was on a kind of corporate shoot that had tons of different scenarios to shoot...... it had been billed as all reportage but ended up being mostly portraiture....... portrature really needs assistants. Reportage by its very nature does not..... as you just bring a couple of cameras and observe...... any kind of set up photography with lights and reflectors and kit needs assistants..... other wise you end up half killing yourself off...... especially if there are multiple locations even if they are on one site....... even perhaps especially many locations on one site. So we have agreed to shoot without any crew under slightly false pretenses....... Anyway to cut a long story short I end up shooting from 8AM till 6-30PM in such a demanding way I never answer one call or text....... Not even from Matt....... I never look at the blog or anything even once...... I didn't even have time for the bathroom I kid u not........

I've done much longer days but this one was for some reason especially taxing ...... then I got in the car tried to follow the Hertz never lost GPS system back to the hotel...... That thing made me late in the morning I could have started even earlier....... Maybe its cos I never use it..... Maybe its cos I am exceptionally tired but on the way back I just cannot follow it at all. I keep on getting on major roads going the wrong way....... that never happens with the Tom-Tom system i usually use...... anyway Im making no progress on reaching the hotel so I pull in at a Ruby Tuesday for some food...... they have no internet but I try and download all the shots from the day........ but by the time they are closing up at 11PM I still have not downloaded it all...... thats a heavy day's shooting......... by the time I get back to the hotel I have had it.......

Tonight is no different really...... I was shooting in Phillly again....... this time all reportage....... by the time the light is falling Im on my own agenda in the so called 'Bad Lands of Philly'......... this is literally the last frame i shot before the cold put an end to the battery life of the camera and I thought this as good a time as any to stop........ Im not sure its the best frame of the day but hey you had a first shot the other day now today you can have a last frame....... anyway again it is now 3AM Im back in NYC....... Im tired........ so I remembered this last shot and I thought....... I'll go with this one not spend time downloading and peaking through everything......... :-))

Cheers Jez XXXXXXXXXX

PS........ Whats going on at the top...... that flare is looking a bit odd....... still its done now...... :-))
