Just Walking by…

Posted by Mike on September 20, 2008

I was photographing a group of actors and directors out in front of Benaroya Hall in Seattle a few days ago and this guy walked by…. Quickly I asked him if I could photograph him….

No lights, 35 mph windstrom, 21/4 square film with 50mm lens…. a lot of Photoshop.¬† It came out great and has already won one prize in competition.

It just goes to show you that the camera and the lights and all the the-wiz“stuff” are not as good as your eyeball when it comes to making the photo.

Here is the group we were photographing for an annual report.
