It's difficult to say what's the perfect photograph, but if you were to look at some of the best photographs throughout the history of photography many of these images are caught moments. This means the photographer aware of his or her surroundings and was prepared to capture those moments.
The image of Christian Slater was taken during a break during a cover shoot. He's looking out toward Central Park and just watching the people heading into the park. I loved this moment because I felt it was a moment when he was just being himself. The same is true of the model looking out toward the ocean. We were doing a swimwear shoot and changing lenses when I looked up and caught her silhouette. It was such a beautiful moment. I had my assistant run and give her the sandle's to hold in her hand, but this moment was a caught moment and my favorite of the day.
This week give yourself the assignment of looking for special moment.
