thanks marc -- one of my goals as a photographer is to become a quick 
problem solver, which, i've realized doesn't always mean finding something 
we think of as traditional "let's find a widow with a neutral background and 
i'll shoot it at f 1.4" but, i've discovered over the years, sometimes means 
embracing chaos when you can't beat it, or when it's especially chaotic. and 
one of the things i love about editorial portraiture is that it's often 
trial by fire. you've got ten minutes to produce something. no slouching.
