I was sitting on my apartment building doorstep today. The light was gorgeous with the sun straight in my face, but reflecting into a window to my left, illuminating the faces of the people walking by. I had my camera equipped with a 3 stop ND filter, so I could shoot wide open.
Then I decided to do a little assignment…. The setup was simple:
15 minutes – Photograph all the people that came into my line of sight from the left.
Using my X-Pro1 with the 35mm set wide open at f/1.4, I used a small peanut on the sidewalk. I zone focused on the peanut… and when people stepped into “the trap” ….CLICK!
Some people noticed, some didn’t. A fun experiment, also showing the diversity of humans. All in 15 minutes.
