Dave, I don't know to talk about the technical stuff here, but I am out of my socks with your capture of the personality of these two. And that's what's important. She giggles and he keeps on coming on. Great stuff. Love the swapping of the beret. Your suggestion ? Cool. Did I say great stuff? Yes, great stuff. This is what cameras are for. Matt

Massive clouds from a low sky pressing down on the cityscape - very effective! Tyrone's love for Miss Cynthia comes across so naturally and beautifully in the first of those three shots. And she looks confident and appreciative of his admiration. I like that shot very much.

Thanks Linda !!! I was blessed with the clouds that day. My observation prior to approaching was exactly what you have described. The affection they both show towards each other was awesome. Glad you liked them and I will seek more of this type in the future.

Week #8 and moving right along !!! I went out Sunday for awhile and came back with a couple of images that were make do. Not being satisfied I went out again Monday. Struggling for unique subject matter, I was about to give up for the day because I was running into a lighting issue. Having been to Devou Park Drees Pavilion many a time to capture one of my favorite places for skyline shots of Cincinnati. Most may be getting tired of seeing the same ole', same ole', but I can't help myself. I like what I like and I'm sure you do as well. Soooo ..... here is another Cincinnati skyline image.

However, after the skyline was taken, I just happen to see a couple taking selfies with a cellphone. I debated with myself for a couple of minutes only to force myself to approach them. My stumbling words were "Okay, I'm gonna step out of my comfort zone to talk to strangers". I gave them a card with my info, "I would like to take a few shots of you two", "email me and I'll send you digital copies". The rest is history, and they were more than happy. A win, win situation. Here is Tyrone and Miss Cynthia, was the term introduced to me.

Afterwards, I crawled back into my shell and went home. This why I say street photography/street portraits is therapeutic, for me !!!

Wonderful images of Tyrone and Miss Cynthia, especially like the last one. You captured personality + relationship. Excellent! I am sure they enjoyed them. When I converse with street photo subjects, I always offer images to be sent by email. When photographing the homeless, I offer to bring a print the next time I'm there. I've never had anyone turn me down.


Thanks Minnie !!! They were a natural and very willing. They did like and appreciate the images. I don't mind giving out images that I have taken, but for the most part, I never see them again. However, there have been some I have seen again and have printed 8x10's for them.

Thanks Matt !!! Actually, personality was all theirs. The hardest part was approaching them. After that, everything was smooth sailing. Swapping the beret was all Tyrone.

Week #9 and it seems I'm starting to get a little behind. Although, I'm still current to the week just towards the end has me a little concerned.

I was only able to get out once this week and I'm not at all very pleased, so I decided to start and complete a composite for this week of three different images. Although, one of the images IS in the weekly time frame of the 52 project, the other two are NOT.

As mentioned, a composite of three images with many various layers.

Great imagination, Dave. Between the moon and a lighthouse. Am puzzled by the dark spot over his left eye. A patch? Thanks for the clever composite. Matt

I like your color palette and the light play is wonderful.

Thanks Matt, I appreciate your thoughts. The dark spot over the eye is a shadow. It does look like a patch, which is probably why I left it as is.

Thanks Piet !!! I was indecisive with the color palette. I reduced the saturation quite a bit, not to mention the light issues I kept changing. Lately, it seems harder to make a decision on anything, LOL !!!

Excellent image with great artistry and execution of concept. I admire how you think up these things and plot your path to creating them.

I'm behind too, having been away with family and "off the grid" for a week, but I am now only a few days behind instead of a week+. We'll get there!

Personally speaking, I consider it a new product when I'm using old parts to make a new image. I don't know how everyone else feels about it, but some images are entirely new once they are brought into a composition with other images and turned into an entirely new creation.
