The shoot was at an art space with an upscale industrial vibe. Various shades of gray, metal, and concrete. Racks of coats and clothes, bags filled to capacity with various accessories lined the white movable walls. Stylist, shop owners, and models going over the order of the outfits and the locations with us, the photographers, and with each other. This was light years from the graffiti shoot in Bucharest last year.
I was venturing into new "photo shoot" territory, but I was fairly certain I was to focus on the clothing with the models serving as attractive hangers. When I started editing the shots, my favorites weren't of the clothes, but one of the models. As introductions were being made at the shoot, honestly, I didn't pay much attention to her - "Oh what a pretty girl. NEXT." My camera, on the other hand, paid attention.
Because my "eye" is drawn to aerosol art found in "sketchy" locations, I've not given much thought to the notion of the camera "loving" someone, but it was obvious my camera loved this girl and transformed her from pretty to striking.
The element of surprise - one of the many reasons why I love photography.
