This was a truly candid snapshot. I did not move into position to shoot, and he did not pose. This is my roommate, feeling relaxed and free on the tail end of a night of ecstasy. It was new years. A great night/morning to end this way. He is free and he is floored. And he is wonderfully OK with that. As was I.
Personally I feel the photo could be better, but only if it were posed. However, I love it as a very happy accident. I think honestly no matter the skill. Most photographers dream of this very occurrence… It is as real as it gets…
Happy new year!
