Via her Instagram page, Banks shared that she “put on” her “Super/Model/Hero cape” because the photoshoot was “going in the wrong direction.”

“When you go to @beautycon and you’re in your car leaving but you see a photoshoot happening that is kind of going in the wrong direction. What else do you do but put on your Super/Model/Hero cape, jump out of the car, grab the camera from the photographer and start clicking,” Banks explained in the caption of one of the photos that she took during the experience.

“Maybe one day I’ll jump out of the car to capture YOU. #TyraTaughtMe (By the way, after five minutes of a quick lesson, the young photographer took some amazing photos of this weet orange-eyed beauty. This pic is mine, but the framing of his shots became really good,” Banks continued before tagging the artist and encouraging her followers to check out the young woman’s shots.

The young woman who goes by Tee, commented, “I’m literally crying. Thank you so much!” Perhaps, Banks is working on a new project titled “Tyra Taught Me. Hence the reason that the iconic model used the hashtag in her caption.
