There are many occasions where I give thanks to my newspaper training and this shoot with actress Olivia Munn is definitely one of them.
Photojournalists rarely have the luxury of time to plan their shots and often times have little more than a couple of minutes to recce and come up with a photo. As a young intern photographer at the Evansville Courier & Press oh so many years ago, I remember fretting about my next day's assignments, always trying to plan ahead. Inevitably, I'd arrive on the ground, and nothing would be the way I envisioned it.
After awhile you learn to trust yourself to not worry so much and just go with the flow upon arriving at your assignment.
I had around 45 seconds with Ms Munn (who was very accommodating and easy going which made things a lot easier) , and I'm glad to have trusted myself yet again.
