On the way back from a morning's shoot, I was offered free use of a boat under the condition that I bring models to the beach within the hour. Can you say doable?
In the excitement of the idea of getting a free boat to shoot with, I ignored a few somewhat imporatant facts; that it was about to rain and I'm outside with my full lighing equipment. But come on! It was a free boat!
So I come back a while later and see "the boat"; and I had to say "just because it can float doesn't make it a boat". I liked the colors though. So the shoot resumed. I would have done it alost 100% problem free, but I dropped and broke my ring flash while trying to keep all the lighting gear dry. True story.
