On the Street....The Right Spot, Paris

Sometimes I luck out and find the right person standing in the right light.

Blogger Fe Yamin said ... (7:15 PM) : 

absolutely! the right outfit wearing the right person! that's all...

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:36 PM) : 

yeah right, you grabbed her of the streets, took her in to a studio and made her pose in gorgeous light and a simple background ;)

but seriously it's truly perfect. it looks like a painting

 

Blogger Blaise said ... (7:53 PM) : 

Did she pose for you, or this is exactly how you find her??

 

Blogger The Jewelry said ... (7:57 PM) : 

Absolutely breathtaking.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:30 PM) : 

This is the most gorgeous photograph I have seen on your blog to date. What an image. I love to look at your blog daily and see what's out there and what people like/dislike - keep up the good work! and thank you.

reminds me of the gap red ads

 

Anonymous Dress Up said ... (9:25 PM) : 

What an awesome shot! I also really dig her scarf.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:55 PM) : 

it seems you achieve this feat day to day (:

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:22 PM) : 

yes, you did find a lovely young woman, wearing color, in Paris! I'm so happy!

 

Anonymous Amy said ... (11:32 PM) : 

Sart, it's one of my dreams to be "found" by you on the street one day. Good thing I'm Asian too, because it seems you have love for us. :)

 

Blogger Jane said ... (12:03 AM) : 

i love this girl. on the one hand she looks sooo ethnically asian that there's almost an old-world provincialism about her, but on the other hand she's dressed so well and has such a look of power that only the modern global woman can have. that dichotomy, plus the amazing lighting, makes for one amazing photograph.

 

Blogger Q said ... (12:07 AM) : 

I love Asian girls with style!

 

Blogger applevenusian said ... (12:14 AM) : 

perfect!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:22 AM) : 

This picture is almost like a painting.So still and calm.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:22 AM) : 

Sometimes you make your own luck...lovely shot.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:47 AM) : 

Oh! Wow!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:07 AM) : 

It looks like a painted portrait!

 

Blogger daniqueconijn said ... (3:30 AM) : 

yes thats for sure a beautiful shot

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:22 AM) : 

Another painting from the sartorialist. Beautiful.

 

Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (7:10 AM) : 

Blaise
she is standing in line for the Zucca fashion show
there are a ton of people just to each side of her.

 

Blogger Emily said ... (8:04 AM) : 

You shoot her a lot -- is she a colleague or your second shooter? She's gorgeous. I love this image. It's perfectly composed.

(I'm clearly dying to solve the mystery of who this lovely lady is... :-) )

 

Blogger sandman_gr said ... (9:11 AM) : 

amazing portrait!

 

Anonymous urbnstyle said ... (9:13 AM) : 

great shot, the light is really nice!

 

Blogger Alice Olive said ... (9:47 AM) : 

What a stunning shot. You've captured a moment in her time. Beautiful. The sharp red and her dark hair are so dramatic!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:55 AM) : 

This is a spectacular photograph. It's so rich and full of life, but at the same time there is a stillness and quiet about it.

 

Anonymous concupiscence said ... (10:17 AM) : 

It does have the quality that is so sought-after in formal portraits and photoshoots. But it goes beyond most of today's polished, photoshopped images. You could feel the texture of her clothes, the warmth of her skin. You could let her hair loose and breathe in. While I'll never be the first to embrace the drama that black and red create, they seem almost fragile in this photo. And I love it. I love it. As much as I believe in luck, I believe in the 'eye' and skill. This shows both, a keen eye and superior skill.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:39 AM) : 

I absolutely love this, down to the bell in her hair. For me the photo really evokes the Peruvian Andes, because I'm reminded of the bold colors and geometric prints there...who knew black and red stripes could be made so evocative? I think it's the casual addition of the scarf, which should clash but doesn't, that cinches it for me. Both the woman and the photograph itself are beautiful and inspiring. Bravo!

 

Blogger Andrew said ... (10:41 AM) : 

The photo alone is a work of art. Beautifully shot.

 

Anonymous Axxonn. said ... (12:02 PM) : 

Is it weird that I think the Asians always have the best style when in fact they aren't in Asia?

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:27 PM) : 

Since she appears to be a photographer, maybe she made a point of standing in the most beautiful light around?

 

Blogger Ali and Shaz said ... (2:52 PM) : 

wow - she looks like a painting.

 

Anonymous Verdiales said ... (6:17 PM) : 

Great shot, Sart. It's easily one of your best portraits.

Incidentally, zucca is Italian for "pumpkin." What a weird conjuction of associations here. It's wonderful.

 

Anonymous fawn said ... (7:40 PM) : 

beautiful picture!
suddenly I feel the need for a striped red sweater...

 

Blogger Ming the Merciless said ... (7:50 PM) : 

Interesting look but a little too National Geographic documentary of tribal wear.

Beautiful colors and lighting. You are right.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:44 PM) : 

we all know what an eye for style you have, but this photograph is proof of your amazing skills as photographer. love it!

 

Blogger citizen said ... (8:57 PM) : 

Wow. It often takes photographers hours to set up this kind of shot in a studio. It's amazing that you got this beautiful shot in an everyday situation.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:39 PM) : 

seriously insane. this light and pic requires some intense lucking-out, and you got it sart. and the girl is a singular argument against sylists

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:47 PM) : 

Nice shot. It looks like you labored in a photo studio for hours to get this portraiture.

 

Blogger pretty kitty publishing said ... (10:25 PM) : 

Perfection! Love the accessories, too.

 

Anonymous Haruka said ... (11:43 PM) : 

that must be a saint james shirt. i love it! tres tres chic.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:06 AM) : 

the lighting is like out of a vermeer painting... just stick a pearl earring on her and call it a day!

 

Blogger limonete said ... (1:44 PM) : 

cool style. cool pic.
:-)

 

Anonymous Tara said ... (2:16 PM) : 

The first thing that came to mind when I saw this photo was a Samurai warrior. She looks regal and intense.

 

Anonymous samantha said ... (3:12 PM) : 

talk about being on the same wavelength: the mood, fashion, styling...

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:44 PM) : 

Yet another painterly picture.
Nicely done!

 

Blogger The visual escapist said ... (7:03 AM) : 

Beautiful photo, both very intimate and at the same time distant as she looks so lost in her own world. I love the look! Colourful, simple and relaxed.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:28 AM) : 

It's a most fabulous "portrait".

 

Anonymous jaanu said ... (8:03 AM) : 

i'm flabbergasted!!!!
shockingly beautiful....

 

Blogger Lydia said ... (9:39 AM) : 

What do you mean, 'sometimes?' Thes pictures are always great.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:04 PM) :

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:51 AM) :
