One of the greatest parts of photojournalism is going into places and meeting people you normally would not have the opportunity to.
Recently, I was assigned to make images of a hypnotist in Columbia, Maryland. Having the opportunity to document a hypnosis session presented a few challenges.
The only light coming into the room was from an adjacent window, and in the nature of hypnosis the client laid there the entire session.
As they started their session I tip-toed around and made a few safety images. The entire session lasted about 45 minutes and with about 15 minutes left I began experimenting.
Overall I am very glad I had the opportunity to make these images and hope to photograph more assignments like this in the future.
Until next time, take care!
