I know a lot of you guys (not gender specific) are much more adept to shooting street photography than I. But at some time you have to break the skin. Although I have done the occassional shoot on the street, it has been a burgeoning process and now I have the opportunity to have a small footprint to boot. I tried to keep the focal length at 20mm or 25mm to get a grasp for a fast prime. I can definetly see the intrigue, but after this outing, I think my preference is to shoot long and isolate the subject(s). The jury is still out and another session is in order to go with the 40-150mm. I also chose to shoot in the worst time of day to test the camera's ability to handle DR without any filters to circumvent. These are basically SOOC and only converted to B&W in CS5 with Auto setting, then resized to 1000 pix on the long edge. Like a moth to a flame, a photographer and a mirror. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 I met these kids from NC State that were making a project called "Impressions". 9 10 They wanted to know if I'd participate. Sure, I said. Stay still for 20 seconds and you're done they said. But my man in the backgrund started on the keyboards again, and i told him that I can't stand still, my man was grooving on some serious reggae. I also had to remind him to remove the lens cap. :smile: 11 12 13 14 15 Thanks for looking. Comments welcomed. Critique appreciated.
