  • Gonna be honest, had a good cry over this today. An elderly woman was feeding the pigeons at Symphony. I clicked the shutter as a piece of bread left her hand and half the pigeons flew up towards me. Cliche I can admit, but gosh was it a beautiful moment. Gonna camp out at that street corner and hope I see her again. Barb says it teaches a good lesson, a street photographers’ mantra to always go back. Poor little photograph. Stupid mechanical problems. You were destined for so much more.

    Today I lost my first roll of film because of a mechanical error with the film advancer. Lost one especially beautiful, incredible shot that I’ll never be able to get again. I cried. And now I’m posting a digital of @mariapalkon because DIGITAL HAS NEVER DONE ME WRONG 😭😫😭😫

    Hello! When you photograph people how do you get the eyes so clear. Mine seem to always look black and dark.

    It depends on the light/time of day/angle. Sharpest eyes = dead sun. But you have to be very creative and careful not to make them look unprofessional or blown out in dead sun. Backlighting they’re softer, but if you expose for the person they’ll be fine. The darkest eyes come from cloudy days… but move the person 360 degrees and you’ll see the light on their face change. Cloudy, move them in direct “light”
