Photographer Pilot

There’s a new white belt in class named Shawn that I've worked with a few times recently.  He's a nice guy (a little goofy) with a lot of natural ability.  He remembers technique details really well right out of the gate, and he's naturally aggressive.  He's a pilot by trade, and an amateur photographer.  I was talking with him after class when his eyes glazed over and he asked me if he could take my picture.  Apparently, I was sitting in really good light.  I tried explaining to Shawn that this "good light" was actually my body radiating goodness and positive energy, which was both a blessing and a curse, but he would have none of it.

I don’t know much about photography, but this guy’s got some talent.
