New York City's chilly winter temperatures can make it a challenge to stage a photo shoot outdoors, and renting indoor studio space can get expensive. Galleries and museums with tolerant photography policies provide an amazing, creative option. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the best of them all: It's spacious, well-lit, full of interesting colors and backdrops, and the entry fee is by suggested donation.
I connected with model Scarlet Sage through Instagram, and we created this fun and varied set on a Sunday morning in just over an hour. Here's a tip: get there right when they open at 10:00, it will feel like you have the place to yourselves!
