I found a certain degree of contentment when photographing still life objects, the subjects patiently sat still for hours on end as I fine-tuned both the design elements and lighting. Legendary New York designer/art director Alexis Brodovitch was renown for setting assignments for prospective Hapers Bazar magazine photographers. Brodovitch would have them photograph a white egg on a white background. He was forever telling them that their image was not good enough and to try again.
Each time I thought I had a good result, I would think of Brodovitch saying "Not good enough... try again, keep working at it"
I never considered reshooting a subject, there was just more shooting, until I was content and I thought Brodovitch would be happy.
