Reportage for the press conference of ESA, European Space Agency. Few days before leaving planet Earth for 6 months on the International Space Station, the astronaut Paolo Nespoli presented the mission Magisstra. I was called to document the event, for delivering some portraits and a few shots for press releases.
I used several radio controlled flashes for lighting people heads in the dark theatre. Since the space was a subject of the conference it wasn’t a problem to see some flash and flares in the frame. I had only a minute for taking the portrait of Paolo, since many tv reporters and journalists were waiting to interview him.
