The Chilean piper played patiently while we waited for the light to be in the right place. I had allowed an extra day on this assignment to research the location and determine the best time to make the image.
I arrived a lot earlier than I needed too, a habit I acquired early in my career from watching other photographers at work. As a young man I assisted a National Geographic Photographer on a project. He asked me to get to the location early in the morning and I thought I had but he was already at there when I arrived, planning and preparing. By the time the talent arrived and the sun was rising, the photographer had everything in place and was ready to shoot the image.
