(from August 24th) Yesterday, while working for the newspaper here I actually ran into Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers outside his hotel. Went over, asked him politely if I could make a quick portrait for my portfolio, and he agreed! Luckily I had my 35mm 1.4 already attached and even though I had only a few seconds with him, and no time at all to play with settings I’m really happy with the result. I’m so glad I got this photo, since the chaos that unfolded later with the red carpet event and horde of screaming fans and press made it practically impossible to get any good shots, so there was no chance in hell to get a personal shot like this one. Yay!
