thankful for little gifts

While I take a lot of portraits, some are definitely more interesting than others. As a photographer I sometimes get little gifts, like beautiful rays of natural light, a really great location or a few extra minutes to spend with a subject. After shooting dozens of executives in their offices, I rejoiced at the chance to photograph Humberto Martinez at a construction site. A few weeks later I was photographing Laura Fantozzi on a rooftop, working with two lights to overpower the harsh sun. When we went inside after the shoot I noticed the late afternoon sun coming in the window. Instead of overpowering it this time, I forgot about my lights and used it. In the United States we celebrate Thanksgiving today. This year I’m thankful for those little gifts.
