Respect the subject. This is another rule for the photographer who is privileged to get up close into another person’s space with a camera. Sometimes as a photographer, I zoom in on the subject. Shooting models at Arise Fashion Show and shooting on the set of Lekki Wives, the recently released drama series produced by Blessing Egbe has been quite instructive. I was invited to shoot the set of Lekki Wives by Emeka Nwokolo, my dear friend who also owns a shop at Ikota Shopping Complex. We met on one of those evenings I spend after closing, sitting to relax at Ritz Bar before going home, and we became good friends. I had my camera on that day, and gave Emeka a few tips about his newly purchased camera, and discussed photography in general. It was an easy choice for Emeka to get me to shoot on the set of Lekki Wives-one of the scenes was shot in the complex.
