String of photos, no gaps in sequence, taken on 5the Av. platform around 5:40 PM. It ios amazing how the BB interprets light quality - from grey cold to maple syrup warm.
Shooting candid BBs is both easy and very difficult. I am shier about being confronted - some people do not like their photos being taken and others police the world. My photos capture movement and spirit more than details. I cannot explain it.
From the beginning I was uncertain about privacy, and being seen as weird for sneaking photographs. I look corporate and must appear to too senior to be a rebel.
Camera phones have been tinged by so many illicit images.
I see using the BB camera as my way of manipulating the corporate beast. Finding beauty in tool of toil.
I feel best shooting on subway platforms. Deep underground, dim light, noise and transience.
