    I've been digging through my archives lately and I found this photo I took at our local fair back in 2012 and for some reason, I never deleted it. There must've been a reason why I kept. The orginal edit I did was horrible and never shared it. No idea what I was thinking!

    After looking at it, I saw this.

    I decided to do a really thick b&w, almost low key. I love the lighting on their faces and the motion in the hands when he's about to through the ball while his friends watches. I don't know, the photo tells a story to me. Even back then, I saw something but I just didn't know how to present it.

    I took this with a Nikon D7000 + 35 1.8G DX

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I like the heavy shadows too. It almost says " This area is safe as long as you don't leave the light ".

    I've been really inspired by a photographer I know who does street photography, his name is Alan Schaller and I absolutely love his work. I'm not a street photographer by any means but the way he captures moments is just amazing. I've learned a lot from his work.
