forklifts and frappuccinos...
What I do love is being at photo shoots. The process of setting up, positioning the lights, watching the photographer scope out the location, all of it is fun, good times. Until I have to get in the shot. Yesterday was one of those days that was mostly fun, good times. I was at a warehouse in Pomona, Ca. with our angelo:HOME product photographer, Inta and her assistant Kate. I barely had to be in the photographs. We spent most of the afternoon looking for interesting spots to shoot new upholstered pieces, that will be available this Spring. We also had cheeseburgers and frappuccinos. It was a very fancy affair. I was in shorts (It's in the 80's here is SoCal---sorry to my Midwest and East Coast friends) and we had a blast just goofing around. It was actual work that will be used to showcase the product, but it really felt like I was playing hooky from my job.
The photos here are just a couple of random behind the scenes shots from my iPhone. I'll share the more professional looking ones of the new product line--including me driving a forklift, soon.
In the meantime, I highly recommend finding ways to make what you do fun. Maybe it doesn't include warehouse machinery and cheeseburgers, but maybe it could.
