Tell All Tuesday: The Last Shot

Google+-846_violinistsillouhetteWhen you are passionate about what you do, you often don't feel like you are "working". That is the case when I am shooting for myself or others. I never really "quit". I made this photo at a wedding after I had fulfilled my contracted duties. I had just packed my gear away, taken it to my car and then heard this beautiful violin music coming from down by the water. It was a band member getting ready for a second set. As soon as I saw him in the dusk light by the water's edge, I knew what I had to do. In my mind's eye I saw this as a silhouette and exposed accordingly. I also anticipated the perfect moment of his bow hand. Creativity meets opportunity, equals this favorite shot of quite a moment!
