This model was getting her make-up put on before she hit the runway. For the five minutes before this shot, she was looking down, allowing the make-up artist to get her eyes, cheeks etc. I wanted her to be involved in my photograph. So I waited...and waited...and waited. For a split second, she looked up, right into my camera lens. Because I was anticipating the moment (because this the scenario I had pre-visualized), I was able to press the shutter release and get the moment I wanted. A half a second later, the make-up artist moved over and she looked away. I only got to fire a single shot. But that was all I needed.
What was I doing before this moment. Making sure that my focus was locked on, exposure was at the optimal setting and most of all anticipating....
