oh, it was an interesting assignment. photograph three supreme court justices with exisiting lighting (set up by a film crew) for packaging and pr materials. up at 5:00 a.m., down to D.C. by 9:00, get into the room, meet with the film crew and people from the Supreme Court's PR office. Find out that I won't have, as I'd thought, an hour to get photographs, but instead I'll have _thirty seconds_. Yes, 30 seconds. And not only that, it won't be 30 seconds for photos, it will be the thirty seconds already plotted out for the justices to get their microphones put on. So, about nine seconds per justice once they sat down. http://www.asc.upenn.edu/usr/cassidy/temp/sdo.jpg <http://www.asc.upenn.edu/usr/cassidy/temp/sdo.jpg> http://www.asc.upenn.edu/usr/cassidy/temp/kennedy.jpg <http://www.asc.upenn.edu/usr/cassidy/temp/kennedy.jpg> http://www.asc.upenn.edu/usr/cassidy/temp/sb.jpg <http://www.asc.upenn.edu/usr/cassidy/temp/sb.jpg> then back to philadelphia. for this i'd packed two camera bodies, four lenses, a quantum, and and sb80dx. real photographers work too hard. bring on the goff models. seriously. kc P.s. breyer is wearing a hermes tie.
