Big Worry

The story of this image starts with a request by a friend to take a portrait of him. Not just any portrait but one for his obituary. It was not something I relished but how could I say no?

I only took one picture of her. This is it.

Contrasting Modes

This photograph was taken in the Porter Square subway station Cambridge, Mass. When the trains let out, the long escalators are filled with travelers.

There is a great mural of old fashioned trains on the ceiling over the people. I very much liked the conrast between old and new modes of transportation.

The harsh sunlight and his dark clothing contributed to my decision to make a silhouette out of this shot. It was a shoot from the hip grab shot. The shutter clicked at exactly the right time. For this kind of shooting I just set the camera to program and the ASA to 1600 and let the software do its magic.
