I just finished shooting shoppers at the start of Black Friday. It feels so good to be going to bed at 2am and not getting up at 4am like last year.

Shoppers fill a Target Store in Chicago, November 25, 201. Some stores, looking to grab as big a piece as possible of what is expected to be a middling holiday shopping season, pushed post-Thanksgiving openings into Thursday evening or opened at midnight for the first time in years, getting a jump start on 'Black Friday', the traditional beginning to the U.S. holiday shopping season.
