A quick informal portrait of a photographer friend of mine, Sarah Smith.
While walking in Manhattan, I saw what would make a great background when viewed from a certain angle. I asked Sarah to stop, and then asked her to turn her gaze slightly outwards to the light coming from the street side of the Manhattan sidewalk. I carefully framed the image in my camera’s viewfinder, using shallow depth of field. A great background, beautiful light and a very photogenic subject. Sometimes it’s this easy, and this quick.
