Picture of the year of Mladina weekly
I’m glad that Mladina chosen my picture to be that picture of the year. On it Minister Zver shows Prime Minister Janša and Minister Virant results of elections on Parlamentarial elections 2008 in Slovenia, where they have lost it. This was a moment nobody was expecting. Prime Minister Janša was not only expecting victory, but victory with great advantage, but lost the elections with few thousand votes. When I shot the image it was really intense moment. We were a herd of about 40+ photographers, cameramans and journalists and we were elbowing each other and we were constantly pushed by bodyguards.
There was enough light from cameras, so I chosen a wide angle lens
24/f1,4 35mm and ISO 250. I was fast and fixed lens and 12,7 million pixels allowed me to crop the image. I took a lot of photographs and when Minister Zver was showing a text message on the phone to Prime Minister I knew it’s a decisive moment. I was reading text message on their expressions while photographing. That night I felt I’m in the flow of decisive moment!
