Pic of the Week: In the Frame by Keith Beard

editorial image

I took this in the wonderful Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York.

I looked for an unusual combination that showed some interaction between art and visitor and I was struck by the way the minimalist sculpture here almost mirrors the pose of the crouching photographer. The museum is unusual in that they are quite happy, or maybe they are just resigned, that people take photos. Unlike many others, I respected the request not to use flash, so this exposure was 1/30 second at f 4, and at ISO 800. My Canon 50D was fitted with a 17-50 lens at 33mm, and image stabilisation helped the image to remain sharp.
