“I was in Kingston, Jamaica, volunteering at an HIV ward at Missionaries of the Poor and trying to learn how to do fashion photography,” writes Your Shot member Justin Anantawan. Working with amateur models, Anantawan spent the day near an abandoned fort at a beach in Port Royal, capturing this shot at sunset. “The shoot was very simple—I just bought some striped fabric and chiffon from a store in downtown Kingston, wrapped it around the men, and then let the scenery and ocean breeze do the rest of the work. The man on the right held up the chiffon, and I took around ten shots before I captured the fabric at the just the perfect moment.”
