What exactly does an "assistant photographer" do? Well, I help pose the shots and use flashes or reflectors to fill in light when there are shadows. Sometimes I block out light when it's too harsh. I do a lot of talking since I can't help myself. I apologize for my husband when he sticks his foot in his mouth (which happens about once a shoot) e.g.,
Kris: Great pose. You guys look good together.
Guy: That's sick man, she's my niece.
I also carry stuff around, help scout out the locations, help photoshop the pics, and I even act as a second photographer. So I may not have Kris's natural talent but I've taken a few good ones.
All in all, I'm just kind of an intern...again. Even though I already did that in New York City a hundred years ago for John Stossel at ABC News. Somehow, this pic of me holding one flash and wearing three pairs of sunglasses on my head (props) during the shoot reminded me of the good old days with John when he had me go feed his parking meter.
