When “FOCUS” is Critical

The University of North Texas is one of my clients and last year I had the honor of doing step and repeat pix of people with Mayor Rudy Giuliani in downtown Dallas.  At the end of the shoot, Mayor Giuliani said (to me) he ALWAYS likes to get/give a picture with the photographer (and photo assistant) , so I proceeded to hand my camera over into the “trusted hands” of his body guard and gave him brief instructions about composition and most importantly, how to FOCUS.  His body guard took two pictures and Mayor Giuliani said (to me) “just double check to make sure you are pleased with the pictures” …. I took a look at them and saw THIS … and didn’t have the heart to tell him how out of focus they were.  He said “… are WE good?!”   I said “…they look GREAT!!”  He said “Are you SURE?!” I said “Yes Sir, we are done with the picture-taking part of your meeting here …”

I believe life is all about making memories and not sweating the small stuff – even when you are standing right next to someone like Mayor Rudy Giuliani.  ; )

“Make It A Great Day!”
