Boston, MA – So, this afternoon, I’m dutifully photographing donors who were invited to meet the former POTUS and when I have taken the last shot, one of his aides takes my camera and pushes me towards him.
Of course, I turned around and smiled!
I would never have asked to have my picture taken with a famous subject as I see it as stepping over the line in my role as photographer in situations like this.
Lighting was a basic pair of 580EX’s at full power, triggered by PocketWizard II’s and fired into 36″ mylar umbrellas set about 15′ apart at about 8′ high. Exposure was 1/100 @ f8.0 ISO 400.
