Quick recap of Sunday.
Nothing too hectic happened, although it was still a 13 hour day. No shots were taken, it was just recce. A walk around of the location was done to plan shots, consider lighting etc, and work through problems to find solutions.
Restaurants were scouted and sections for shooting were reserved (These shoots will be done later this afternoon). In the evening we took a boat out to scout the yacht. It was beautiful to be out there while the sun was setting (unfortunately problems arose with the yacht, but I’ll write about that in my two day recap which I’ll post soon.) I don’t have too much to say about Sunday so here are the notes that I took.
