This young model (they were all young) had a mission.
Either to make life of fashion photographers exciting or to give them a subtle message. And that message came in a toothpick.
She came out four times down the catwalk/runway with different cloths from the Krizia Robustella collection. The first time she certainly took us by surprise when she launched the toothpick flying towards us. Of course, we could all see she had a toothpick in her mouth but none expected it to come flying towards us.
The second time we were all ready for her, but all she did was pretend to go for the toothpick. Nothing happened.
Then the third time she was ready and the photographers were ready, but she’s good and she’s quick. The sequence of the three photos from the model removing the toothpick from her mouth, a real fraction of a second before I took the photo, and launching the toothpick took place really, really quick. This is how quick: first photo taken: 11:06:42:60 am, second photo: 11:06:44:70, third photo: 11:06:46:14. I make that 3.50 seconds: therefore the sequence took less than that because I don’t have the toothpick in the last photo.
Don’t forget she did this twice in front of the world media and each time the toothpick just launched perfectly. Note how she holds the toothpick in the photo. That’s what I call good and cool.
Can you take a photo or have you taken a photo of another Fashion Model launching a toothpick in less time? If you can better 3.50 seconds I will leave this message on your Demotix.com profile page “My favourite ACTION PHOTOGRAPHER.” And if she is not a fashion model on the catwalk/runway I will leave a message “A very good ACTION Photographer.” But it has to be a toothpick and also not a set up shot: real action photography.
The model was taking part in the Krizia Robustella collection. Robustella was born in 1984 in the Netherlands, but has always lived in Barcelona. She has been show her designs at Cibeles since 2007.
