Comments: After photographing these three children for several hours I was wearing out my welcome. But I still needed an important shot - an upbeat picture of them all together. I hastily directed them in from of this wall, using parking lot glare for nice fat light. They were just not interested. So it was time for the secret child photography weapon - the head slap. A micro-second after I began smacking my head and crying with pain I made the picture I needed.
An obvious lesson here is to make the most important pictures first, before your subjects lose interest. After all these years I should know that. HC
