December Challenge: Day 7 – Paul Meissner

Paul Meissner

Paul Meissner is a local photographer I ran across in Del Mar this afternoon (check out his site for some sample work). He was set up near the water shooting some pano’s with a nifty custom-made tripod head. I believe he was shooting full-360 shots, and he was waiting for the right combination of light and the absence of miscellaneous bystanders — so I wasn’t interrupting his session (I hope). After I took some shots of him, we talked about various aspects of photography and camera equipment… then the conditions were just about right for a pano, so I took off.

    Two strangers already! I haven’t even worked up the courage to ask one yet, though I suspect photographers might be more accommodating than a random photographer. Unfortunately, most of the photographers around my area are probably going to be tourists and generally suspicious of why I would want a photo of them!

    Luckily I have a large extended family.

    Well, this one was a little easier because he wasn’t on a paid gig with clients. It’s weird, I have almost no problem approaching another photographer and asking to take their photo — I guess it’s because we immediately have something in common.

    I say go for the tourists — that could be kind of fun, having one of the locals play tourist on THEM.

    Next week I’ll venture out and approach a non-photographer to see how that goes.
