I was practicing video stabilization for an article in NYC. I was headed towards Times Square, looking at the LCD on my Canon 7D and occasionally traffic. I was following two women and trying to keep the camera as stable as possible. The three of us turn the corner and were now standing in Times Square. All of a sudden, I saw the two women stop dead in their tracks … and then ran over to the growing mob across from MTV. I walked over to see what is going on. And there, in the center of the mob, is Jake Gyllenhaal. It’s a photo shoot for GQ.
I made my way over to the photographer who was standing on something. It was Peggy Sirota snapping while trying not to get knocked over by the crowd. I moved next to her and start snapping my own photos of the scene. Her photos appeared in the May 2010 issue of GQ, but I like mine better 😉
Jake was a very good sport with all the fans. He was completely surrounded. He was having a good time and seemed to enjoyed the experience.
