Project 365: Day 341/365 - Always Have a Plan B

© 2012 Eric Adeleye Photography. All rights reserved.

I had just finish coming out of the Taste of Italy restaurant when I spotted this Chrysler 300 with EVO doors in the parking lot. At first I wasn't going to take a shot of the car because I had a photo shoot schedule for later in the day, so I'd get my Project 365 photograph from out of whatever I shot at the session. I saw the car from the back which wasn't an appealing perspective to photograph it at. So I walked around to the front of the car and started taking photographs. You know I'll try HDR on a bar of soap, so I too some bracketed shots, handheld. Photomatix 4 and Adobe Photoshop CS6 was used to edit the photograph. I'm glad I did take this photograph because later in the day, the photo shoot was cancelled by the client.

After 341 days of taking pictures everyday, I got to thinking that it won't hurt to shoot a few photographs of the car. I don't know how many times I just took a photograph of something and later ended up using that photograph as my photo for the day instead of what I initially planned. There were times when I had an idea and then it would be raining by the time I got off of work, so I'd have to come up with something else. Always have a back up plan when doing any project. You never know what will happen and one of the worst things is to miss a day taking a photograph which technically screws up your Project 365.
