Hard Learned Lesson
We made really careful and long preparation - chose outfits, did make up and also discussed a location - beautiful, almost magical forrest near our town. But...

|Our location was occupaded by someone else!|
It didn´t take long and we found a nice small river and field with hay. "Hay?" I though, "that must be great to shoot!" so we stayed there.
But after less than two minutes it came out that the water near by means that there is a lot of mosquitos and another similar annoying monsters!
So we finished up our photoshoot after less than thirty minutes and from yesterday I can not stop scramble myself because of so many stings.
What´s the advice I´ve taken from this shoot?
Never ever forget a repellent if you want to safety shoot near some water!
My Resolution For Next Time
To continually improve my photo skills I want to do some thing better and differently during next photoshoot. Here they are:
- Wait for better lighting (it showed up that the "magic hour" is at these time one and half hour later than I thought)
- Be more careful about the light
- Use artificial light (especially as fill light during backlight shots)
- Use different color palette than violet/yellow I´m using now
Chrysseis has decided to start a blog! It´s a great opportunity for you to read also her point of view about the shoot. Go and check it out here - Chrysseis Art !
She´s a great photographer and I´m pretty sure that she would be very greatfull for every reader, comment etc.
