Remember my first $2.00 portrait? See here Well, I got approached again and he asked for some spare change. I offered him $2.00 if he allowed me to take his picture. Here's Kenny, a very polite man who has obviously been down on his luck. He has what he calls "metal" in his mouth and it is very painful to eat he says. I imagine they were braces holding healthy teeth at one point. None the less, he says he can only have liquids, as in soup. I stepped backed ISO at 4000 with my 70-200 mm lens (Pam's challenge to me) and my new baby Nikon D-700.
Did I tell you that I love this camera? Add that lens to the package and It's just pure love.
The Daily Shoot
Go anti-bokeh today. Use a large depth of field (higher aperture numbers) today to tell a story on multiple layers
The story? It's been a long road here (almost 20 years) protecting this city. The city continues to be in disarray. This is just one of MANY abandoned and decaying building in the city. It's almost time to hit the road and move on.
I really wanted to shoot at 2.8!
and this one is just for fun
