LIRR platform at Penn walking back towards stairs mid concourse.
I believe the picture in the past post is one of the best "traditional" photos I have taken with my BB - shot form the hip and panned and a miracle did result because this is anything but controlled.
Some one could come from the other way, I could be spotted, my finger missed the button, I pan too fast or too slow or my sweep moves upwards or down.
A blog fried wrote recently and commented that she did not take my Blackberry photos seriously. I do, I have come a long way since my first BB images. For every image like in the last pose there are many more moving towards the blur.
Sometimes there is magic that is still and other times less frozen.
Something else I need to address is my general subject matter. I prefer to photograph women. The photos are made with a nod towards Richard Avedon.
I know I am playing with boundaries - candid taken under poor light and close quarter contact without intimacy.
There is respect in these images and I hope that is seen if not heard.
