Today I had the opportunity of a session with a professional photographer. A friend of ours kindly accepted to take a few portrait pictures of me.
It has been very interesting to experience in person what people outside of this business only see stereotyped in movies and the like. The obvious routines to get the subject comfortable and bearable are obvious, and quite similar to how they are themselves portrayed. They do work, of course, and feel both effective and pleasant. Overall, the feeling has been less deeply enjoyable than a physical grooming session – say, at a barber’s – and much more interesting.
