This is a candid shot, taken just moments after the original Cafe Reading photograph (which, in contrast to this one, was posed). I had just informed V that “I got the shot”, and she immediately relaxed and started to flip through the pages of a book.
So I photographed her, because I knew that this was the better image.
I don’t often set up photographs, but when I do I will wait (with camera in hand) for the moment that follows, because what follows is usually better than any idea I can dream up.
(Technical: Taken on a rainy morning, with the soft light working its magic.)
