Last week Ryan and I headed to rural Ohio to shoot a photo essay for Bloomberg BusinessWeek. The story is about a GM factory that reinstated their third shift, 10:30 PM-6:30 AM, and how the addition impacted local businesses positively. It was a pretty exhausting shoot - after driving all day, we began 12 hours of bouncing around Lordstown and surrounding small towns to photograph the factory, small businesses and a few select subjects for the story. We then drove back in the morning. Because the magazine was going to press a day later, everything had to be shot digitally, which at night can easily produce bad, bad images. It was good practice.
Anyways, I loved working on this, and once again getting the opportunity to photograph people working on the line, making things, puts things into perspective. Nothing but respect.
