La foto di New York al buio 05.11.12

Il fotografo Iwan Baan racconta come è riuscito a realizzare l'iconica immagine di Lower Manhattan immersa nel buio dopo il passaggio dell'uragano Sandy, pubblicata sul New York magazine.

Baan made the image Wednesday night after the storm, using the new Canon 1D X with the new 24-70mm lens on full open aperture. The camera was set at 25,000 ISO, with a 1/40th of a second shutter speed.

[...] Imagine crouching inside a vibrating helicopter, clutching a handheld camera and peering down at the devastated landscape of a city just ravaged by a storm that's claimed more than 100 lives. Now imagine what it feels like to have no door between you and that wide expanse of nothing, just 46-degree air ripping around the sky. And somehow managing, despite the darkness, to capture such a vivid, emotional snapshot.
