Yesterday, this Bimbo Pan man stopped to make his usual delivery to the Hamburguesa Stand, my manager of the new apartment.
He walked over and looked at some of my posters & photos on display. Since he could speak a little English & i get away with and even tinier bit if Spanish he told me he wanted a nice photo of him with his truck.
He then started talking of wanting the local river front for it but he was looking at my night scenes.
The night before I had taken a walk & seeing the reflection of the3 bridge in the river which is still quite full.
I pulled out the cellphone and shot 2 frames of the reflection.
So I showed him those 2 frames and he just “Wow! Yes, I want me & my truck in front of that!”
So while he did the bread delivery I grabbed a camera & external flash and just before he drove off, I shot a couple quick frames of him & the truck. I showed him what I had shot and again he was happy with it.
Today he came by to do his delivery & I showed him the combined image, one framed as you see here & one without a frame.
He chose this one, so I will get him a print & in the next day or two of deliveries I will have the finished product for him…
So yes, I am slowly winning the hearts & eyes of these people as more & more are coming by & seeing what I can do for them.
Timing is everything, as any photographer knows, CAPTURE THE MOMENT!
