Feeling blah about a photo shoot, does this happen to you?

I woke up this morning knowing I had a graduation photo shoot and had no interest in doing it. I just couldn't get myself into it at all. couldn't find a nice location, couldn't think of any nice poses, etc. Has this happened to any of you that you're just not into it at all?

Happens in every profession so your case is nothing new. Being a professional, you need to push past your feelings and deal with your obligations. Hate to have my dentist just not feel like it the day I need a root canal and have him butcher my mouth.

Ok, so here you've told us how you felt before the shoot . . .

I'm interested in also knowing how you felt during the shoot, and after the shoot.

Please tell us all about the outcome!

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I'm not a professional, but I do occasionally arrive at a shoot with a lack of ideas. I find that once the shoot starts up, I tend to figure it out. At least I figure it out enough to get enough good images to please the client. Sometimes on those shoots though I am struggling in post-processing to get the images where I want them.

I'm also curious how it ended up going. Hopefully it turned out well.


Constructive criticism is always appreciated.
