I purposely posted this image on a Friday, because I want it to have a three day exposure. This image was taken near the bus station on Harrison St. I was actually on the other side of the street when I saw him sitting alone on the other side of the street. When I first saw him, he was talking on his phone. However, I then approached and asked if I could take his picture. I’m not really good at taking pictures of strangers on the street, and when I do take portraits, I like them to be as candid as possible. Well, he starts to put away his phone, and I ask him to just be normal about it and pretend I’m not there.
Out of the four or so that I took, I think this one captures what I wanted. The down side was that I didn’t actually check the images before I gave him my business card and walked off. Because I was playing with the camera a few shots before I met him, I forgot that I had left it on the manual setting. This is why the image is so blown out. At first I was disappointed and almost turned around. However it grew on me very quickly, and it seemed to actually capture more of what I had seen originally than I had thought. I hope you guys enjoy it too. I would definitely recommend the light CSS setting for this one.
