21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Look to Camera (Judgement)

This photo was taken during the Rochester Institute of Technology's "photo prom," an event where photography majors party to celebrate the end of the semester. I was taking photos with a flash all night, and some people weren't as receptive to the flash as others. This photo captures this real-time judgement of my camera/flash, creating a striking composition.
