One thing I have learned as a photographer over the years is that we get very little time to create our best work. So as an exercise years ago, I started doing 5 minute photos. Basically I would give myself 5 minutes to come up with an idea and find the props, and then 5 minutes to compose, light and shoot the photograph. I love the results of pairing a composition down to just the essential elements. I cannot tell you how many times in my career this exercise has come in handy, whether trying to do three different photographs with Russell Wilson in 5 minutes, or the client coming up with one more shot for you to do on location as you are packing up for the day.
