I could have spoken at length about the wonders of computational photography. There would have been mention made about how a sensor the size of a toddler’s fingernail can render results on par with an Ansel Adams landscape.
Color science is another topic that was glossed over. The word photon wasn’t even mentioned.
My subject was unimpressed and completely disinterested in anything I said.
I did my job as best as I could.
The finished portrait will just have to be enough.
