I photographed a woman making tamales. Put down a banana leaf. Slap on some corn dough. Add some sauce and rice, chicken, potatoes and beans. Wrap it up. Done.
Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Tamale. Tamale. Tamale. Tamale.
Sounds a lot like my photo workflow. Same thing over and over.
But lately I’m taking and processing way too much corn and dough. I should be spending time creating better recipes and tastier dishes.
Tag. Caption. Keyword, Rate. Copy. Upload. Burn.
My workflow is getting in the way of my creative side.
I’m spending so much time key-wording and archiving my photographs that I don’t have time to show them off properly.
Must find balance.
Anyone can make a tamale. I want lobster, truffles, and carne asada. At least when it comes to photographs.
Another early start, I arrive early at court to photograph people as they arrive.
I photograph the group from a distance. Marie is there on the phone. She moves out of sight behind a column.
Waiting for the doors to open.
