Early this week I was working on an annual report for BioRad Laboratories. While shooting the CEO, we noticed a hummingbird had hit a plate glass window on the side of the building and was lying on the ground stunned. I stopped shooting and picked up the bird and tried to put him down by a tree nearby, but his grip on my finger was so tight, I couldn’t release him. So, I decided to let him ride along and kept shooting. I even put him on my PocketWizard transmitter where he stayed for a while as if he was art directing. Although he did have a bird’s eye view of what we were shooting.
