Is there some foreign language word for when the sun comes out right before it sets on an otherwise cloudy/gloomy day? Because it pretty much is the best

schroseph said: Hi! I really like your photos, you're very talented. I really struggle with directing my subjects confidently so I have to ask, how do you do it so well?

Thank you! This was something I struggled with a lot in the beginning. I felt like I had no right to ask people to do something for my photos, like I would be inconveniencing them.  And I didn’t mean that I was asking them to do something crazy; I just didn’t realize that it was my job to ask them to stand a certain way or move to a certain place in the frame. Then I would get home and not like the work.  So I realized that directing my subjects was why I was there, and at the end of the day what matters is what you come home with. And the more confident (and quick!) you are, the better people respond to you, and you get better shots that way as well.
