Does anyone other than me feel that there is a direct correlation between stability and the food or drink which is consumed within a certain timeframe before a shoot?
I have found that the strong coffee that I enjoy, gives me the shakes and really messes with my stability so much so that I have to reduce my magnification to try and steady up for tricky reducer shots. The obvious thing to do is to not drink coffee before a shoot but I am convinced that coffee isn't the only thing that can hamper performance.
I have read lots of literature which suggests that fitness is paramount but how then are so many good shots who are overweight coping, I,m sure it helps but the extent remains unclear I am not particularly unfit and dont have a boep.
Another interesting thing to note is that some guy's can show up for a shoot after a good night of partying and actually benifit from being tired with mild dehydration from their favourite tipple but on occasion when I have had a late night I feel somewhat hampered.
Has anyone experienced this and if so have you found a solution?
