Architecture photographer explains how he got that New York magazine cover shot

Poynter interviews photographer Iwan Baan on how he captured that stunning New York magazine cover.

Baan made the image Wednesday night after the storm, using the new Canon 1D X with the new 24-70mm lens on full open aperture. The camera was set at 25,000 ISO, with a 1/40th of a second shutter speed.

“[It was] the kind of shot which was impossible to take before this camera was there,” Baan said.
