I ran into Ayaka the other day and we did an impromptu photo shoot in Soho and around Canal Street. Her happiness, beauty, infectious smile, and all-around good humor make Ayaka a pleasure to shoot with. We kept chasing that elusive, ever-changing, late afternoon New York City light. (Damn those skyscrapers! .. But wait. Skyscrapers are what define New York City.) Anyway, we found some light, and made good use of it.
