D is a UH-60 Blackhawk pilot.
He can make a huge, very expensive machine that has thousands of buttons and nobs, float off the ground, into the air... while people are shooting at him. This fact will forever amaze and impress me. My camera has far fewer buttons and nobs and requires a different kind of shooting, but its not the easiest thing to maneuver. So, I told him that I needed him to work my camera and take some pictures. To be honest, I didn't really think it was going to go well. First, because I'm far more comfortable behind the camera and a little awkward in front of it. Second, because I wasn't sure how much patience D would have for this little exercise.
But, I thought he did pretty darn good!
So, in the middle of shooting, I told him so.
Well. He must have felt pretty good about the job he was doing too because suddenly...
the project had a new creative director. ;)
Lesson: Never give a military guy the opportunity to "command the mission."
You may never get it back.
I barely made it out of there. Seriously.
PS: I'm starting my 30 for 30 late. My "photographer" was out of town.
