And while you're at it, Plans C through R usually won't hurt.
Things just don't go they way you expect them to on shoots. For one thing, we're very dependent on weather and crop conditions. We also shoot limited-build machines most of the time, often with a few bugs yet to be worked out. We once had a shoot delayed while a Middle Eastern Prince was touring the stables.
To borrow from the Marine Corps, the secret is to improvise, adapt and overcome.
Sometimes, having one custom harvesting crew's schedule change means that you get to follow another one onto the biggest dairy I've ever seen. Or watch just watch them do what they do best.
We got time to shoot some fun shots that we might not have noticed in
the rush of getting things done. I get a kick out of this because any
time you get two men near a machine, they automatically stand like this.
