A pretty girl, a good (Oh alright, great if I must) photographer = terrific portrait. I bet she likes it. Thanks Kirk, as always.

If you're ever at a loss for something to write about, but simultaneously filled with the urge to write, I'd love to hear how you shoot portraits.

No, not where the lights go, and how awesome scrims are.

How you talk, how you move, how you get the subject to do that thing that they do, how you get that moment when it all falls in to place. I can just look up where to stick the lights, but I don't know how I'd even get started figuring out that mojo of yours.

Maybe I should search the archives.
