Friday Photo: Dedicated Photographer Edition

dedicated photogA photographer friend of mine told me once that if you’re not dirty at the end of the day, then you’re doing it wrong. The secret with portraits is to get low, as this stylish young photog illustrates. It’s such an interesting photo, demonstrating how she interacts with her subject and the level of commitment required to get the shot. Lying on the floor of a parking garage in heels – that’s dedication.

I took this photo in an upright position at the Diamond Derby, a celebration of biking culture in Crystal City.
