The Assistant

GXR, f4, 1/100, ISO 800, RAW, 50mm

Sometimes while taking pictures something unexpected happens, you look for a particular picture but what you get is much more and much better than you could have hoped. This picture is one such example, I was after a different shot but what I got was much more.
The look on the models face after her assistant gave her the robe to warm up is great and could not have been staged or planned. This is why I cropped it to square in order to get a tighter composition. I am very happy with the result and find this is one of my best pictures.

For more pictures from New York have a look at my gallery here.

  2. Excellent capture, Cristian. Even the gold edge of the billboard helps to direct the model's gaze towards her assistant.

  3. Sometimes the gods of creativity smile down on us, Cristian, and allow us to capture superb moments such as this.

    Wonderful picture.

    I didn't realize you were already in New York. I am enjoying the series.

  4. Why does a model look like a model, even when she isn't modelling - do they spend their lives posing?

    Well captured.

  5. Thanks for your comments!
    I was lucky to be there at the right time.
