Talk to any photographer who shoots uncomposed shots and they'll certainly talk about all the work they did and the planning and so on. But in the end, the story always ends with it being damned luck. Well, kind of: In order to get a shot, you have to get in the habit of being a fly on a wall. "If you find a place to be very interesting, like a corner with a market or a café, find a table and sit there until you become invisible," Winter says. "Watch life go by through the viewfinder and that special moment when everyone is doing something different," Winter says. "I sat and watched these women doing a voodoo festival in Souvenance, Haiti, for a few hours until this happened."
