Making Not Taking Photographs

Backstage views on making photographs professionally

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.
