Editorial & Lifestyle Photo Shoot - Akira Uchida - French Horn
I regretted explaining too much to Akira before the photo shoot.
There's a saying by Belgicia Howell, "Never explain yourself. Your friends don’t need it and your enemies won’t believe it."
Akira is an intelligent man filled with kindness. He didn't need much of my explanation to the constraints of photography and unforeseeable problems of the photo shoot. He trusted me and my work, and he knew I would be doing my best. While I tried to be clear to him, most things seemed redundant.
The weather forecast highlighted that it's going to be a rainy day. When it started drizzling around noon, I checked with him if he wanted to postpone the shoot. He chose to go ahead, which was a good call.
As Akira worked as a scientist, he seized the opportunity to conduct a research over the place during the photo shoot. I was very impressed for how he managed to utilize his time. He was simply too composed and humble, which to me, was a good role model.
Akira's priority for the photo shoot was his French Horn. He gladly did some explanation to me and even demonstrated near the Esplanade outdoor theatre. Although I wasn't a big fan of musical instruments, it was great to listen to a special live performance. I managed to see the fun side of him and he was open to ideas.
My favourite is his jumping shot, which is full of energy and youth.
