This was a natural light photograph taken of one of the dinner ladies in the school where I taught for twenty years. It was my last day, and I went everywhere with my camera to record memories. I think this woman has the most amazing gravitas, but I did have to beg her not to grin, as is her wont. I’m afraid I cheated a lot to make the shot look like one of my typical studio strobe jobs – complete with faux Rembrandt lighting. What can I say? It’s a look I like.
