While some setups might have a half-dozen or more photographers, others can be more intimate. I found Kayla inside a barbershop with only a couple of other photographers, giving me more creative options. The obvious choice was seating Kayla in the main barbershop chair. That didn’t work out as well.
As I recall, I didn’t have enough distance to move back using a GF110mm lens — it wasn’t a large space. Sure, I could make headshots, but you lose all the context. In such a unique place, it’s logical to include part of the environment.
I made this picture with the Fuji X100V with a 35mm equivalent view. Nearly showing half the room, it’s decidedly an environmental photo and also doubles as behind-the-scenes documentation.
