This is one of my favorite shots of the day because it shows how you get better results by 1) slowing down, and 2) working the scene. I took the 1st shot because the family was approaching the camera, and I liked the interplay between the evening shadows and the warm light on their faces. I held my spot to watch the girl’s interaction with the man. He spoke to her in a sweet voice, and I managed to catch her just as her little cheeks flexed into a smile. Don’t be afraid to take more than one shot. Sometimes, the first shot is the best; others the last shot.
