This is just a sample of what I’ve been shooting at Blue Cactus Cafe. I’ve photgraphed the family that owns and runs the place, the food, atmosphere, and a few of their “regulars” such as the two pictured in the last photo. They are friends from high school that have been coming to Blue Cactus every week for about 10 years. But I have had some pretty big lighting and focus issues during my shoots so I’m going back yet again to re-shoot some things and even some things I missed. What I feel I have the most trouble with is getting more photos of the customers. They are there to eat and relax with friends or family and I just hate to waltz up with a huge camera and ask to take pictures. But you gotta do whatcha gotta do! Does anyone have any pointers how to make this go more smoothly? I also commented on Mallory’s and Danica’s blogs.
