On a recent commission documenting the day’s events at an Educational conference, I made some “30 second portraits”! I had less than an hour to capture 100 faces! The combined effect of the unexpected,the speed at which we worked,and the excitement of being the subject of a professional photo shoot, led to some really great spontaneous expressions! My subjects came alive at just the moment that I hit the shutter release and had no time to get bored or anxious! Most were delighted with the results at the end of the morning.
