Chess and Wedding Photography
I love chess. I've been playing since I was a kid. No question it has improved the way I think and process daily life. I tend to approach life from many different strategies. A quality I learned from chess. It has a lot of impact on my life as a professional photographer.
Photography is all about problem solving. Which light to use, how to handle difficult situations like low light or images with motion, how to light up a dance floor, figuring out why the flash strobes won't fire....it's all problem solving. Having spent a lifetime playing chess, I honestly think it has influenced the way I think as a wedding Photographer.
What an amazing game that pushes our problem solving portion of our brain.
