I Love Sushi

I'm putting this one in for a couple of reasons. First, I like the photos pretty well -- sushi is one of those photogenic foods that rewards you if you think about the setup. Second, due to miscommunication and some lost-in-translation moments, this shoot almost never happened. It reminded me that a phone call is sometimes not enough, that polite persistence and a cooperative spirit is imperative in photography, or any business where you work for yourself. It's easy to give up on projects because of a percieved lack of interest from the party paying for your service. The hard part is to figure out where this resistance originates, and if it is real or a simply misread. In any case, it was empowering to overcome a percieved obstacle to start a new year in photography...
