More Than Enough
Big advertising photo shoots can involve a infrastructure that looks more like a motion picture set than a stills session.

It’s most visible on projects that are simulations of reality. These often bend the truth or at least strain credulity.

There’s nothing wrong with taking the path of simplicity. A moment between the subject and photographer with just a camera is usually more than enough.
