I spent a day in the city last week getting the boys' passports ready for our trip to Japan this summer. Shot the passport photos at home, and I'm loving big brother's expression! On a side note, not looking forward to the heat in mid-summer Japan. I'm friggin' Olaf the snowman in Frozen. Ok, so I'm now a Disney Kool-aid drinker. Kids do that to you.
Back to the post. We arrived right when the passport people staff went out to lunch, so we decided to go to lunch ourselves. It was weird walking around the city. Since having the kids, I don't think I've walked around that area at all. So we decided to take a walk to the ferry building.
On the way, I decided to try to shoot some stuff. It was my first time shooting strangers since an assignment to shoot strangers during my time in art school. The critique of that assignment stung, and the comment that stuck with me the most is, "you shot only profiles. Get up close, get in there!."
Well, I can't say that I've rid myself of the fear of shooting people closer, but, thanks to a little tip gleaned from a youtube video, I got a couple shots that I dug. Hope you like 'em, too. Thanks for your time.
