Photographers often discuss about merits to have project or just do random walk during street shooting. I am a random walker. I constantly move from one place to another being alert to any opportunity for my shot.
Recently I had interesting experience in project based photography. My boss asked me to make some images for our company website. My professional responsibility has no relation to the photography or any fine art for that matter. My hobby is well known in our office and I’ve got my project.
Besides shooting in the office, I took some pictures about building. This is the famous Chicago CBOT building that has a lot of action and interesting architecture. To have project is unusual for me experience. I was constrained by the place and I had to explore every situation. It is hard to say whether good shot is the product of the pure luck or having project really helps.
