Some portraits of passengers in the New York subway. All were candid.
I like these a lot. How did you achieve that look, where everyone but the center subject is blurred?
These shots are cool!! I like the first shot, this guy looks like he wants a piece of you!
It's a special lens called at Lensbaby. ( http://www.lensbabies.com ). It's kind of a poor man's swing and tilt. $150US. Very manual. But very fun.
I agree. I didn't see his expression until after I shot these. I was just shooting. Everybody wants to look cool.
Very nice. I am usually to chicken to take pictures like this. I am afraid people will get mad at me or something. The lensbaby sounds like it would be fun to play with.
Nice use of the 'baby' . Has a really cool effect. Sure looks like some unhappy campers here.
Have you ever seen this part of the forum.>>>>
Some lensbaby schtuff there.
Too cool, and with the lensbaby too, how could they have been candid! It must have shown from miles that you where having a camera to your eye! I really like these, but when I was in NYC of late (why didn't we meet up?), I never really dared to take photos of the kind. Only once I did, very candidly, with my little compact digital camera on my lap, only to receive flak from my husband that I was photographing strangers (groan!).
One day soon, im just gona go to my bank, get some money out and buy a lensbaby... i love them so much
I really like those! Wish I had the courage (and skill) to just take shots like that!
really good candids, and really good tones...
