You crossed the street and found a girl dressed in black in front of an illuminated white wall; almost a perfect silhouette with white earphones, as in the Apple adverts, you raised you camera and instinctively you configured it for almost no light conditions and waited for a vehicle to come by to illuminate her face from the opposite angle. Two clicks was all you got before the magic of candid urban photography vanished. You don’t know for sure, but you think got the shot and you realized you did after minutes later you reviewed them; two versions slightly different. All of this took less than 10 seconds.
