Below, a photo taken this past week of the keynote speaker at a conference on water law and policy. Terribly underexposed, very soft and virtually unusable for print. However, there was something “painterly” about this photojournalistic failure that reminded me of John Singer Sargent or the brooding and dark portraiture of Rembrandt. (It’s doubtful either of them would pose their subject with a PowerPoint clicker in hand.)
