We've all been there. We have a senior, we have a location and our mind goes blank... What do you do? How do you get a game plan? What if nothing is coming to your head? Some of my absolute favorite images come from this moment of terror. The key is to let that moment stay in the back of your brain, get past it, and just start playing.  We are all professionals but sometimes (for me almost all the time) the results are much, much better when my subject and I are playing. Together we'll find some of those pressure moments and I'll share several ideas and "tricks" I used against my own head to get me out of that terrifying position. All while exploring simple lighting and posing methods to produce dynamic images.
