"On-the-Fly"

I was recently hired to photograph at a multinational automotive paint laboratory in suburban Detroit. Although I've worked with this company a number of times before, it was my first gig with this particular client who flew in from Chicago for the two-day shoot. There were no layouts which gave us the flexibility to shoot anything that we felt would tell a good story. I enjoyed having to think "on-the-fly", as it differs substantially from many shoots which are much more disciplined.

Without the flexibility our shoot strategy allowed, we couldn't have captured this paint booth image.
