A few days ago I did photoshoot for a pole dancing school. The shoot was for three coaches, and I was supposed to shoot them as they danced, demonstrated moves, etc.
The schedule of the day was always to begin taking natural shots, and when that was done I would swap out the lights for some moody portraits.
Half an hour into the shoot and the first coach said that she had to go. I'd already taken a number of photos, so I let her know I would send her what I had but that she wouldn't get anything from the second set. She left.
Two hours later, I finished the rest of the natural shoot and changed the setup for the moodier shoot. That went well, and after a couple of days where I edited everything I sent them off. The first coach, the one who left early, responded:
Client: Hey, can you make photos of me look like moody/mystical photos you took of the owner?
Me: I can try, but that was a very different lighting setup.
After some dodging, burning, and other Photoshop magic, I came with something that looks like she wanted. Her response:
Client: I want it to look more natural.
1) Moody/mystical and "natural" are pretty different vibes 2) you left partway through the shoot. I don't know what you want me to do for you.
