Since I am photographing fishing professionally, I shoot all genres named “Fishing” regardless of freshwater seawater anniversary. I will do it basically by one person from the set-up after receiving the story of work from the publisher. Sometimes we are interviewing with a writer and doing joint work with a video team. There are cases where I think that “If one assistant is present”. For example, when there are a lot of equipment and when conditions such as rain are bad. However, it is only a little time to borrow a hand, the other one is the one who is the subject and the one who is the subject. The reason is in my shooting style.
I always decide the cut I want to take and position it and I am in shooting. Two cameras. There are several cuts that I want to take, but of course, I can only press one shutter. Therefore, we prioritize the cuts you want to take and quickly rotate the two. There is a freehand shooting method that is heavily used as one of my good skills in that rotation. It is a technique to shoot with a no viewfinder using a super wide-angle lens. When shooting this, I will shoot around the angler.
If there are people around me at that time other than anglers, be sure to reflect. It will make an effort to escape so as not to reflect on the picture in accordance with my movement but to escape from the speed of the camera which I move is impossible unless it jumps into water, so be sure to reflect it I will excuse you. Of course, that cut is a part. So one person is good. As with any job, as the number of people increases, the speed feeling is slower and the efficiency gets worse. Of course there are lots of nice things, but when you make something in a short time the handling is light and futile as the smaller the number.Especially in the field.
