Project based candid photography   Leave a comment

Photographers often discuss about merits to have project or just do random walk during street shooting. I am a random walker. I constantly move from one place to another being alert to any opportunity for my shot.

Recently I had interesting experience in project based photography. My boss asked me to make some images for our company website. My professional responsibility has no relation to the photography or any fine art for that matter. My hobby is well known in our office and I’ve got my project.

Besides shooting in the office, I took some pictures about building.  This is the famous Chicago CBOT building that has a lot of action and interesting architecture.  To have project is unusual for me experience. I was constrained by the place and I had to explore every situation.  It is hard to say whether good shot is the product of the pure luck or having project really helps.

Why do Jews fight against their own interests?   Leave a comment

Once you cross gray area between candid street and documentary photography it is easy to get political. I could not restrain myself to avoid rhetorical question – “Why do Jews fight against their own interests?”

Boston candid portraits   Leave a comment

I’ve spent weekend with my family in Boston. Boston is nice city with very good food. I made only few meaningful shots but I’ve got three very different portraits.

Shallow depth of field with foreground “framing” makes this composition.

I like dramatic movement with the blur that is, probably, from slight out of focus. Actually, I have another one that is very sharp but it looks static for me.

Absolutely calm portrait in the darkish restaurant setting. It is sharp across the frame.
