Local photographer Jay Snap often takes shots of the city from unusual vantage points. So, on this warm evening, he waited for the sun to dim as guitarist Sean Clapis of French-American jazz quartet Carte Blanche played a blazing solo.“I’m a fan of slightly overexposed images—and shooting into the sun,” says Snap, who used a Canon 5D Mark II to capture the moment. “The technique worked perfectly, especially the sunset’s reflection upon the endless pool. And I love the look in the eyes of lead vocalist Cristina Kaminis.” We’re guessing she sensed the magic, too.
