While working to be sure the topic is well covered, sometimes an idea pops into the imagination and you wonder, "does this even fit with the article?"
Sometimes the primary shot is just not clear. The best thing to do when subject are willing, is to simply try it. An editor or art director can't say no to photographs that don't exist and they most certainly can't say, "hey that's a great idea," if the image doesn't exist.
So while working with knee-surgery patient, Jane Lynn and her husband Ferris, at their community fitness center for an article in Banner Health Smarts for Republic Custom Publications, we tried a number of different things over the course of the shoot: wider views that showed other people in the environment, more isolated angles and exercises, and a wonderful little unplanned moment as the couple shared a kiss.
