Technical data: Photo taken with handheld Nikon SLR film camera and Nikkor 85mm f1.8 lens using existing daylight. Approximate exposure 1/500 second at f8, manual mode, spot metering in-camera and hand-held light meter on Kodak T-Max 400 black & white film, processed normally. No lens filters were used. Film was scanned using a Nikon Coolscan series film scanner. Photo file was routinely optimized with Photoshop on a Mac.

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
