There are two things wrong with this picture, Paris' cream colored dress against the cream color background, and the asshole amateur photographer with the flying nun elbows
there was a velevet "press" rope, but he leaned into it at least 4 feet blocking most of my full length fashion "money shots". I would love to see his shots, we were 15 feet from her, and he didn't even have an external flash, although I was impressed by his "photographer's vest."
then there's the folks who don't use flash brackets. I did have a conversation with someone who doesn't use the bracket, and he does news. The interesting thing is that most news photos are horizontal and celebrity photos are vertical. Cover shots have to be vertical, most photos in the glossies are vertical. It's celebrity photography 101 to shoot with a bracket and take the shot vertically. That way your flash is still on top of the camera and you don't get a side shadow.
After a bit the PR moved the press out and the fans in
Paris greeted the fans with waves, hugs and handshakes
There were lots of interesting fans (you can read about this one at http://www.phillychitchat.com/
but the most interesting of all was
Sister Mary Heid, who told me that Paris is just a young girl trying to find her way in this world
