What does it Take to Capture a Great Photo?

We were on a photo shoot not too long ago and the client was surprised at how much time it took to set up an execute a shoot. He seemed to be thinking we would walk in, set up a camera, take a shot and be done. It isn’t uncommon that we can spend half a day or more photographing a kitchen. Creating a great photograph takes some time and preparation, and the experience. It’s as much about the experience we bring to the scene as it is about equipment. Perhaps we can do a better job of educating our clients and home owners about what to expect on a photo shoot, but in the end what you get when you hire a pro is experience and skill.
