Strictly speaking, my mandate as a primarily candid-photography photographer means I’m not necessarily all that excited when I get a near-posed eye contact from the subject I’m shooting. But then again… the subject is actress Charlize Theron, in this case at the Snow White and the Hunter Premiere . And that IS something to be very happy about.
What I do like (almost as much as my favourite actress providing a smile and eye-contact in my direction in defiance of the press photographers to her left) is that the two people she’s with are facing in a completely opposite direction and looking a little like cardboard cutouts.
So, it’s an odd photo. And that DOES fit my mandate!
…. however this shot of Kristen Stewart will probably be my Photo For the Day because it’s a fantastic dress. And a pretty neat pose. And it looks great enlarged.
