Catching a completely candid moment on film (or digitally) is harder than you think. People naturally clench up when a camera is pointed at them; or they put their canned smile on their face; or they just turn away from the camera. That’s what makes Andy’s shot above so interesting. He caught this woman with a normal, contemplative look; a look we all have on our face from time to time. There is the added bonus of her looking straight into the camera, which gives the picture power. The viewer naturally wonders what she is thinking while her photo is taken; her theatrical makeup and hairdo only add to question. A truly candid moment. They aren’t captured very often.

Brian is so DC. Born on Pennsylvania Ave (not there) to a lifelong Federal worker father and a mother who has worked for Garfinkel’s, the Smithsonian, and Mount Vernon. Raised on the “mean streets” of Cheverly, MD; went to high school at Gonzaga College High School (Hail Alma Mater!); and now trolls the corridors of Congress as a lobbyist, you couldn’t write a more quintessentially DC back-story. When he isn’t trying to save the country from itself, Brian can be found walking DC looking for that perfect photograph.
